Peaches,  Pears,  Plums,  Apples  and Many Other Varieties.  This week the Snowshoe mine sent  out 2,850 tons of ore to the Trail  smelter and 3,710 tons to ���the B.C.  Copper Go's works.  Ton furnaces have been in; commission this week in' Boundary smel  ters���ei(-ht at the Granby and two at  the'B. C. Copper Co.'s plant.  Report has it that in the face of the  long tunnel on the E. P. U., on which  work has been under way for over a  year, the ground is decidedly improving.  At the B. C. Copper Go's smelter  7,357 tons of ore were reduced this  week, as follows: Mother Lode, 3'440  tons; Napoleon, 93 tons; Snowshoe, 3,-  759 tons.  G. L. Elkins piloted about 30  Dokies through the Granby mines  last Sunday morning, after the initiation ceremonies of the D. O. O. K  were concluded.  Over 100,000 tons of ore have been  shipped from the Granby mines in  exactly five weeks last past, making an  ayerage of almost 3,000 tons per 24  hours for that time.  On Wallace mountain, West Fork,  only two properties are operating, the  Sally and Duncan. The former is  shipping a car of high grade ore that  is expected to run $5,000 net.  The Riverside mine, near Rock  Creek, under bond to Sater and Johns,  shipped a car of silver-lead ore last  week to the Trail smelter, and another  car is being hauled to the railway at  Midway.  Monday's freight wreck at the Bull  Dog tunnel on the C. P. R. cut down  the Snowshoe shipments this week to  the Trail smelter. The full force of  some 160 men is working at this mine  as usual.  Four or five men have been kept  busy at the Dominion Copper Co's  Brooklyn mine, this camp, mostly in  keeping the water out of the property  till the officials of ihe company arrive  from New York and Boston.  What is probably the largest sign in  the Boundary has just been painted  on the roof of "the hew Granby Victoria  shaft head works, the letters of the  word Granby bcing~six^reet"hign:.7and  the whole sign some 30 feet long.  Operations were discontinued by the  Consolidated. Co. at the War Eagle  this week, the boarding house being  closed by W. S. Macy & Co. The  diamond drill continued working for  the time being, to finish some long  holes.  *******  Although the force at the Motlt(.r  Lode mine has brfc'n reduced by about  50 men, the usual tonnage is being  sent out.daily.  Next week it is expected that the  West Kootenay Power & Light Co.  will begin work on the feed line to the  War Eagle mine for the Consolidated  Co.  About 50 men were laid off at the  Granby mines this week, most of whom  were engaged in development work.  The output of about 3,000 tons daily  is being steadily kept up. Diamond  drilling has also been discontinued  for the winter.  Two shafts have been sunk on the  Le.Roi-McrCinney mine, each about 65  feet in depth, with excellent showing  in the bottom. Two of the men employed there arrived, in camp Thursday. Some machinery will be the  next requirement.  In the current issue of the Canadian  Mining Journal is a full description of  the Emma mine, by Frederic Keffer,  M. E. About 70 men have been employed lately at this'<��� property, the ore  going to the Granby smelter. This  week about half the men were laid off.  Through the B. C. Gazette, the  government gives notice that all placer  mining claims and leaseholds legally  held in Greenwood and Grand Forks  mining divisions, may be laid over  from November 1, 1907, to May 1,  1908. Not many are affected by the  order.  Simply Owned Phoenix on Saturday.  Class of 73 Initiated���iOO Here  From Outside Places.  COMING AND GOING  At the Fremont mine the main incline shaft is now down about 150  feet, and drifting north and south is to  be started when the' 200-foot level is  reached. Good values were found in  a 25-foot drift from the 85-foot level,  after which sinking of' the main shaft  was resumed.  Anew crushing plant will be installed at the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter in Greenwood, similar to that  in use at the Granby mines. The jaws  will have an opening'that will take a  piece of rock 24 x 36 ieches.

The Greenwood Ledge states that  Jimmy Moran will have Tom Hardy  and Tom Roderick as neighbors at  his ranch, across the line below Midway.  M. W. Ludlow recently purchased  the hotel at Denoro owned by R. V.  Chrisholm, of Phoenix. Mr. Ludlow  has occupied the hotel for a couple of  years.  There is a to-do over the removal of  of the Rock Creek postoffice from  where it has been located for 20 years  to Sam Larsen's place, two miles east.  Apparently, it is a case of political  pull with Duncan Ross, M. P., or lack  of it.  Heirs of the late J. S. Haynes  brought action against the B. C. Land  & Investment Agency, Ltd., for disposing of the assets of the estate.  The trial came up in Greenwood last  week, and the case was adjourned to  Vancouver. An imposing array of  K. C.'s was lined up on either side of  the case.  Will Stick lo Agreement.  A despatch from  Butte to  the press  is as follows:  In respose to the notices from the  mining companies that after November  ist the old scale of wages would go into force, the miners and smeltermen's  unions met and by vote decided to  abide by the contract entered into at  the time the recent raise in pay was  granted, the contract providing that  i when copper fell below a certain point  the old scale of wages should be reverted to. This means that there  will be no troublf and that the 7,000  men affected will continue to work  under the former scale.      -  The Dokies and the tyros had possession of Phoenix last Saturday evening, 73 of the latter being transformed  into the former before the horrible initiatory ceremonies were concluded  early Sunday morning. They came  from far and near to be present and  take part in the auspicious event, El  Mabarraz Temple No. 92, of Spokane,  having about 30 members present, with  its brass band. Grand Forks sent 28  tyros and eight Dokies; Greenwood  was well represented, and tyros were  also present from Midway and Eholt.  The train from Spokane being late,  the parade did not leave Miners'  Union ball till aboul nine o'clock.  The procession was headed by the  band of the Dramatic Order of the  Knights of Khorassen, followed by the  officers of El Mabarraz Temple. Then  came wagons with tyros in cages, the  balance of the tyros being herded and  roped together securely in the rear.  Evidently the band of Mokannah, attired in splendid robes and turbans,  had been successful in the hunt on the  desert, as the long line of victims who  were paraded that night in the oasis of  Phoenix gave ample evidence. The  strange Fantastic costumes gave a weird  effect in the red lights, candles and  fusees which were burned from one  end of the route to the other. The  strains of the band were calculated to  strike terror, into the hearts of the  weary wanderers of the desert, who  were to be led that night across the  burning sands to the cooling waters of  Zem Zem, giving them a slight pre-  moniti6n of what was in store for them.  The victims themselves were dressed  in what appeared to be nigntgowns  and caps.  After the parade the ceremonies  pcop��r_.took...place in Miners' Union  hall, and lasted till considerably after  midnight. Then . the banquet, prepared by Danny Deane, was praised  and partaken of, and there was feast of  reason and flow of soul, with a long  toast list, where wit and common sense  freely mingled.  It was indeed a jolly crowd, and  when most of them left on the Great  Northern train Sunday morning for  their homes, they received a great send  off at the station from many who had  not had time to seek their "downies"  the previous night.

It was the greatest gathering of  Knights of Pythias ever held in Phoenix or the Boundary, and the local  knights were complimented on the  manner in which preparations  been made.  James McArdle, of Grand Forks, a  Phoenix reality owner, was here Tuesday.  Mrs. W. S. Macy returned to Spokane Tuesday, Mr. Macy going down  Thursday.  Treasurer G. VV. Wooster, of the  Granby Consolidated, was here last  Sunday.  James Carter, of the C. P. "R.  local staff, returned Thursday from a  visit to the coast.  Dr. G. S. Gordon came in from  Victoria Saturday in time to be made  a Dokie, leaving again   on   Thursday.  Last Saturday every hotel in the  city was filled to overflowing, owing to  the doings of the D. O. O. K. here  that night.  Dr. Robert Mathison, of Greenwood, got back last Monday from a  several weeks, trip to the Okanagan  and Similkameen country.  Rev. Alex. H. Cameron, ol Kere-  meos, Rev. M. D. McKee, of Greenwood, and Mrs. Seaman, of Nelson,  were guests of Rev. Samuel Lundie on  Thursday.  W.A.Lawson, of Victoria, B.C., agent  of the Queen Insurance Co., spent a  day or two here this week, being shown  around by the local agent, D. J.  Matheson.  J. E. McAllister, managar of the B.  C. Copper Co, visited the Granby and  Snowshoe mines Thursday, from which  latter he receives a good deal of ore  for his company's smelting works.  H. F. Libby, who has been at his  mining claims, in the vicinity of Paulson Siding, above Coryell, for the last  two months or more, arrived in Phoenix  Thursday for two or three days.  Joseph H. Graham and son Stanley  returned last week from their ranch  near Stettler, Alberta, where they have  been all summer. John Graham also  came in from Rossland to spend a  ten days' vacation.      .  VOTERS LIST  IS DOUBLED  Preparing For the Civic  Election*  Househoulders    Registered to  The Number of J 89.  Earnest Spraggett, road foreman for  Grand Forks riding, who had made  headquarters here for the last ten  weeks or more, left yesterday with his  outfit for Grand Forks, via the Eholt  road.  Rev. C. Wellesley Whittaker, pastor  of .the1Methodist -church,1 whV went  down; to the coast, was indisposed  while there and-detained. .He writes  that-he will hold servicesin his church  as usual, tomorrow evening.. 1  W. H. Callicotte, who returned this  week from a trip to Bear;creek in the  far Similkameen, states- that people all  through the Similkameen valley are  straining their ears ��0 hear the whistle  of the Jim Hill locomotives.  New Wajen Road Open.  Foreman Spraggett this week completed the new wagon road connecting  Phoenix with Hartford Junction, and  avoiding the many railway crossings of  the old road at the several mines on  the way. The road is 11,100 feet in  length, besides 225 feet of bridges,  and the grade is a great improvement  on the old worn out highway. When  it is widened out in places and travelled somewhat it will be found more  desirable than the old road. Mr.  Spraggett and his force at times as  high as 32 men have been working  on the road for the last two months  nearly. A Pioneer representative, together with G. W. Rumberger, O. B.  Smith, Jr., and W. S. Macy went over  the road Tuesday with Mr.  Spraggett.  For the last month there has been  no little activity locally in getting the  names of householders on the municipal voters' list, the time limit expiring last Wednesday. Altogether  189 names were added to the list in  this way, which is something like 130  names more than on the list for 1907.  Of the 189 names three were those of  women. In addition to the above the  city clerk has until the last of November to list those who are entitled to  vote by reason of being registered  property holders. It is estimated that  the list for 1908 will- have about  double the number of names over that  for 1907, or about 300 names all told.  The court of revision will meet some  time next month, to pass on the list,  when the exact number will be known  and the list will be printed.  Just how the election will frame up  is not, of course, known at present.  The present administration, under  Mayor Matheson has the city practically closed as far as gambling was  concerned, and no announcement has  been made so early in the game as lo  whether Mr. Matheson will run again  to succeed himself. At the same time,  there are many who would like to see  him enter the contest.  It is understood that George VV.  Rumberger, who. was beaten last Jan- .  uary by Mr. Matheson, may once more  be a candidate for the mayor's chair,  and he also has many friends who  would like to see him mayor again,  he having had that position for seven  consecutive terms���up to last January.  For aldermanic timber a number of  names are already being spoken of.  In the east ward those of Messrs.  Birnie, Carson and Knott have been  suggested, while in. the. west-ward, Mc-  TCenzie, Roderick" and McGuigan may  be put up. Of course, if there is a  contest for the mayoralty, it is more  than likely that there will be a contest  also for councilmen in each ward.  In the coming election the vote of  the workingman is likely to cut quite a  figure, most of those recently registered  as householders being employed in or  around the mines. For the next eight  weeks there will doubtless be considerable quiet work done, and there  may be some surprises.  Last Monday "The Texas Ranger"  held the boards at the opera house, and  drew a good house���in fact, the manager stated it was his intention to play  a return date here in the course of a  couple of months, with a change of  bill. The" play put on Monday was all  that its name implies, and seemed to  give pretty general satisfaction.  Monday a wreck occurred at the  Bull Dog tunnel on the C. P. R., and  the Bull Dog express did not reach  here till 6 a.m. the next day, and then  no mail arrived. Thus, through the  carelessness of the C. P. R. or postal  employees, Phoenix had no C. P. R.  mail from Saturday till Tuesday.  There would be things doing if this  happened near Toronto or Ottawa.  X  November a, '07  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

Talk of coke  , .shortage is now a  thing  of  the   past,  and let us hope will be for years  to  come.  Owing to the,fact that a few cases  have occurred in Seattle, the good  l people of Vancouver are. in dread of  getting the bubonic plague, that terrible  far eastern scourge that kills so quickly.  Steps to prevent it are being taken.  Fritz Augustus Heinze lost twenty  millions recently in New York, according to report, and only has a paltry two  millions left. It is said he will now  quit the game of banking and stick to  mining, in which latter he has always  made a success.  The decided turn for the better in  the price of copper metal early this  week, could readily be seen reflected  1 in the faces of residents of the Boundary, and we doubt not in those anywhere interested in the industry.  With the market price cut squarely in  half in the last few months, even a  slight upward tendency is warmly welcomed.  Cranbrook and Fernie are now connected by telephone.  l'he Sandon Mining  Review   is  re-  I ported to be moving to New Denver.  '    A branch of the Order of Owls,  140  strong, was organized   at   Nelson   last  Sunday.  Keremeos is improving since the  advent of the V.

As a consequence of the close season  for beavers established by the provincial  government several years ago, those  animals are multiplying rapidly in the  Barkerville district.  The fifteenth' annual international  convention of the Northwest Fruit  Growers'Association is to take place  at the City ;Hall, Vancouver, on December 4th,Ycth and 6th, 1907.  Frank Watson, the pioneer prospector of the Queen Charlotte Islands,  has just bonded his Gold[Peak group  of copper claims on Moresby Island to  the Tretheway brothers, the Western  mining men, who recently amassed  millions at Cobalt. The bond is for  $10,000 and covers a period-of six  months, with ten per cent down.     '-.������,  Cobalt has some wonderful mines,  and it also has a few in a different  class. March ist, there were 233 companies, with a total capital of $311,-  530,000, registered for operation in the  Cobalt district. Of these but 23 have  shipped ore this year, of a total of  10,104. The wild catter seems to  have worked Cobalt to the limit.  Numbers of Boundary people have  been waiting for shares in Boundary  copper concerns to go a little lower,  before gathering in a bunch and salting  them away. Bottom appears to have  been reached, if there is not a sub-  cellar, and from now on there should  be a gradual revival. Buyers at present  figures can scarcely fail to secure the  real thing in bargains and make big  money in a year's time on the investment.  Rudyard    Kipling,    who    recently  visited   Vancouver, to   look   into  the  Oriental   invasion,   has   put   himself  squarely on record as opposed to the  influx of Chinese, Japanese and   Hindoos.    He  thinks  the  province  and  western   Canada should   be   peopled  with whites, but says they must  come  from the old country, and that specific  efforts should be put  forth Ytb induce  white  immigration   to  the  Canadian  west.

"Last winter I caught a very severe  cold which lingered for weeks," says J.  Urquharr, Of "Zephyr, Ontario. "My  cold was dry aud harsh. The local  dealer*.: recommended Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy and guarantee! it, so I  gave it a trial. One small bottle; of it  cured me. I believe Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy to be the best I have  ever used." This remedy is for sale  by all druggists.  A High Salaried Man.  W. H. Aldridge, manager of the  Consolidated Mining & ! Smelting  Company of Canada, it is said draws a  salary of $20,000 a year, making him  one of the highest salaried men in  Canada. But those who have patched  his movements will not hesitate for ; a  moment in saying that he earns it.  To the stranger Aldridge might be  taken for a commercial traveler or a  prosperous merchant in a small town,  rather than for the shrewdest smelter  man in the Dominion. Those who  have watched him at the arbitration  meetings, now . being held at Moyie/  can readily see how keen the man is,  he having all the attributes of a corporation lawyer.���Moyie Leader.  O      n^m<M ��>���<�� &?-���<�� c-<Kl  MARKET MAY REMAIN  AROUND  PRESENT  Y- LEVEL.     "  Horace J. Stevens Saya Worldwide Monetary  Position la the Kay.  Horace J. Stevens, formerly commissioner of rnineralstatistics for the  state of Michigan, and author of the  Copper Hand Book, says regarding the  copper situation:  "To arrive at a clear understanding  of the present demoralized condition  of the copper trade it is necessary to  go back for a long distance and to  begin with.generalizations of worldwide scope.  "The trouble in copper trade is  merely local manifestations of a disease  from which the entire civilized world  is suffering. The copper trade is in  bad shape because money is tight, not  only in the United, Slates but in  Europe as well, and money is tight  throughout the world because there  has been such an unusually large  supply of money during the past ten  years. This may sound paradoxical,  or even nonsensical, but it is absolutely  true. In the presidential campaign of  1896 the two great political parties of  American lined up on either side, one  taking the qualitative, the other the  quantitative, theory of money. The  republicans, who took the qualitative  side, were nearer right than the democrats, but neither party grasped all of  the truth. Money is a commodity,  differing from others in that it is the  sole commodity by which the values of  other commodies are measured, yet  money is governed, as any other commodity, by the general laws that govern  the price for all commodities.  "Like any other commodity, money  becomes dear when it becomes scarce,  and grows cheap in proportion as it  grows common. The price of money  is what it will sell for, and not what it  will rent for, just as the price of a  house is the sum for which it can be  sold, and not the charge made for its  occupancy.  . "Beginning with the first large flow  of gold from the mines of  the  Rand,  in South Africa, there has been a tremendous increase in the production of  this metal, on which rests  the  entire  business fabric of the world.  :, ','By reason of the wonderful stimulation caused by the  increasing  gold  supply, the amount of money for new  enterprises, while increasing from year  to year^ has grown   too  small  for the  demand.    The financing of the great  American railway lines during the past  few years offers an instance of what has  been done  in   most other  industrial  fields, and in most other countries.  .   "By reason  of the  stimulus  given  business    and    investments,   through  rising prices caused by increased gold  supply, the entire; world ;has increased  its monetory_reiLuirementt-to_the:point  of���temporary  exhaustion.; With perhaps $3^000,000,000;'-.of'-���new  money  available-yearly for investment, the demands of the world, at  the   beginning  of 1907, were at the rate of nearly or  quite $4,000,000,000 for. the year, not  including  the: visionary  schemes   by  which at least $250,000,000, and probably   even a  larger sum, are diverted  yearly from legitimate channels,-to.be  lost in the arid sands  of illusionary  enterprises, or diverted into the private  canals of the predatory.  "The entire world has been.invent-  ing: beyond its income.  "The market for copper has not yet  found a sure level, but I look for such  a level of price to be found near the  present range of. quotations. The  drastic, measures . taken by Montana  and Arizona mines . in practically cutting production in half, are being  supplemented, to some extent, by the  Lake Superior mines, which, with  slightly reduced forces, are  undertak-  IN    THE  9  &>���<*   *>������<�����   ��Ur��^��   ��>"<C��<L>��  ingjsuch deadwork as is necessary, with  consequent curtailment of output.  "The world is richer than ever before, measured either by the standard  of actual money in its possession, or  by the truer standard of its various industrial improvements. The world,  however, like many an individual or  corporation possessed of large tangible  resources, is hard up at present for  ready cash, and the only process by  which this stringency can be relieved  is the simple and natural, though not  always agreeable, plan of curtailing unnecessary expenditures.  "The copper industry is fundament  ally sound, for the reason that this  product is a necessity iri twentieth  century civilization. A general collapse of the copper industry is not to  be looked for, but a collapse of overestimated copper demand and prices  not only is here, but is likely to re  main here for some time." f  AMONG   THE WOEID^J  BEST THINGS TO DRINK IS  I.

A  most remarkable dramatic production will be presented at the Miners'  opera    house, ���   Wednesday    evening,  Nov. 6,    "The Egyptian of. Pompeii,"  the impressive and  sumptuously pro  duced  play, tells  of the  life of the  Christians in the early days.    There  are twelve characters in the cast.   The  scenes are painted from original drawings, and the aid  of oriental  scholars  has  been  sought to give accuracy to  every detail of the  historic  play, Irom  the architecture of the King!s palace to  the   brass   armour   of   Arbaces,   the  Egyptian.    This  production is under  the direction  of Harold  Nelson and  Clifford  Lane  Bruce,  and  has  been  staged and directed by them .personally.  While this production   is  under  their  direction, they have spared no pains to  make this   new   venture   a   success.  They have especially engaged  for this  tour   of   the  western   country,   Miss  Helene  Scott   and   Mr.   Joseph    De  Stefani   to  play   leads,  who are supported by a well and even by balanced  company of stars.  The piece itself is dramatized from  Sir Bulwer Lytton's famous-novel, the  "Last Days of Pompeii,"abounds in  fine situations, and is; intermingled  with pathos and humor, j the heart  interest being sustained throughout.  This new scenic equipment,! lights and  mechanical effects, which it is said,  greatly, enhances the beauty of the  stage pictures, are the same as used in  the production during its long run in  London, England. This production  will only be in Phoenix one night, and  a crowded house is sure to prevail.  "We Are King" To Appear Here.  A delightful rotmntic comedy,  beautifully staged and elaborately  costumed, presented by a company of  high-class playeis, is C, II. Walker's  most successful offering in "We are  King."  The action is in Kalinlmrg, a small  principality in Germany, and deals  with the complications in ttying to  dethrone King Hector, a despot, who  has run his kingdom into debt, and  ground down his subjects.  Gustavus Venner, correspondent for  the London Record, a light-hearted  fellow, wanders into Kahnburg in  search of news. He is arrested as a  spy. The Prime Minister of Kahnburg and his followers, who are plotting  to rid the kingdom of Hector, are so  impressed with Venner's marvelous resemblance to the King, that they  induce Venner to impersonate the  King, who is away on a secret mission.  Venner, under the impression that  he is rendering the King and the court  a favor, and seeing good "copy" in  sight, consents. Hector returns unexpectedly, and is dragged away to prison  as a spy, while Venner, costumed as  the King, and accepted by the court,  proceeds to run the kingdom. He  lowers the taxes on the people, throws'  the palace open to the public, and gets  himself into all sorts of ludicrous complications through his ignorance of  court affairs.  David B. Gaily, as Gustavus Venner,  and Hector, as King of Kahnburg, has  a splendid voice, an admirable stage  presence, and is ably fitted for the role  he portrays. He infuses in the dual  role all the requirements. His effective change from the light-hearted  devil-may-care correspondent, to the  despotic and debauched King, shows  clearly that he has mastered the finer  points of his art.  Mr. Gaily will be ably supported by  a superior company, including Edmond  Carroll, Wm. McKegney, Robert Barton, Miss Marie Clifton, Miss Lelia  Hill and Miss Grace Hilton.
