On motion by Aldermen��� Punch? the  Board of Works was instructed to place  a 1 ail on the steep places on the sidewalk, between the two ends of town.  Mr. Punch was prompted to this by a '  narrow escape which he had on .his  way to attend council meeting.  The Hoard of Works was also instructed to look into the cost of placing a sidewalk on First street from the  Pastern Townships Bank '.o Knob Hill  avenue, ami'also on Dominion avenue,  from the postoftie'e to Millers' Unidn  Hall.'

'I'be city   solicitor  stated  that the statutes undoubtedly gave the  nanirij  (,-ontroi, over idi. street.'... ai:d,  alleys.   The .subject was .quite freely  discussed,   and   Mr.   Crawford,   who  was .present,, made futher explanations  that he was enquiring on his own   behalf only, so that he could' give .'some  assurance to piospective builders as to  the exact grade.  Mr. Crawford was finally requested  to bring the profiles and plans already  made to the next council meeting if  possible, when the council would have  them passed upon, in its behalf, by an  engineer^ It seemed to be the opinion  of the council that they would like to  adopt the grade already mapped out,  if found satisfactory.

A brutal murder took place at Pen-  ticton Saturday last, whereby an Indian named Antoine lost his life, the  perpetrators of the crime, being two  other Siwashes known as Donald  and  Edward Jack, says the Vernon News.  The deed was an atrocious one, committed in full daylight, an axe being  used as the weapon; and the murdered  man's head was cut and pounded in a  horrible manner. The murderers are  still at large, but are well known and  will probably soon be brought to justice. Dr. Morris went down yesterday to hold a coroner's inquest.  Brief Sketch of  the  Labor  Leader  for  Cariboo-Vale-Koatenay District.  The following is a .-biographical  sketch of Christopher Foley, the labdr  'candidate in the district: ,  Christopher   Foley    was . born   in  Toronto  in   1848.    F'ive years  later  his  parents  removed to "Paris,   Out.,  where he worked on his father's  farm  until 14 years of age, when he started  out in li.e for  himself,0 going  to  the  southern   part of the  United   States',  where   he  traveled  extensively', ..'until j  1866,'.when he.left the south and went  west.

The.panic of '93 and  the slump in real estate which accompanied   it hit Mr. 'Foley hard,   and he  was compelled to sacrifice much valuable .property and to seek  new  fields.  Two  years later be came to Rossland  and commenced as a  working  miner  in the Commander mine.    Since then  he has followed the  occupation   of a  miner and has worked in several mines  in the camp, at present being employed  in the Center Star.  He hail been  a  resident  of Ross-  land but a few months when he became  a member of Rossland Miners' Union  No. 38.    His fellow members at once  recognized his great executive ability,!  and thrust him to the  front.    Always  refusing to hold many oftces proffered  him, he has,   almost ever since his admission into the union, been a member  of the executive board, a most responsible position, and'one which often calls  for the most  hard   practical   business  sense,   which   Mr. Foley   has in a remarkable   degree,  and   his   influence  with the  Rossland- Union,   as well as  with the whole   Federation   has   been  The elections throughout the   Dominion-Wednesday rcsultcu in a sweeping victory for the lioer.ik    A lem likable feature of the tontest n.ts the tact  that every member ol the government  was returned, while every coiisenatue  leader-of an> piomineiKC, uith the exception of H.tgg 111 and Chailcs   Hib-  hert Tupper,   weie  defeated.

It is pretty generally known that  the Gran by smelter at (hand Forks is  Heating upwards of 600 tons of Phoenix ore each and every day, and has  been doing so since the middle ol  October. Previous to that time the  j ('uction works handled 300 tons per  day. Phis i.s pleasant news to go  broadcast, esjiecially when it is remembered that the smelter is to be  . enlaiged at an early date, and its capacity more than {doubled.  But it is also interesting to note  vhat the smelter has done so far,' expressed in dollars and cents. Since  the second furnace was blown in, and  the 600-ton daily rate begun, the  ��vorks, it is said, have been turning out  matte at the rate of $211,200 worth  every sixty days, or $1,267,200 uer  year. This virtually means that ci ude  ore of the value of about $3,500 is  treated at the smelter each day.  < When the Miner-Graves syndicate  began working their mines'in Phoenix  camp, there were many who, knowing of  the general low grade, took them tor  1 tenderfeet, and shook their heads.'  But Mr. Graves   and  Mr.  Miner  knew what,they were about, and have  proceeded with this knowledge and the  intention to treat  large quantities of  ore at the minimum of cost'    In  this  they are succeeding to their own satis-  ' l'oction, and that of albot.Iiers inteiest-  ��d in the Boundary -country.,   They  .are making theJou: grade-mines pay,'  and will  no^v 'enlarge   their  various  lilants-al'. around, and one of these fine  .'days will begin the dividend paying era.  The campaign in the United States  was finished last Monday, and the  people registered their opinion -)t the  ballot box. As a result there will be  fcur years moie of the McKinley  administration and Mr. Bryan and his  friends are telling how it all hap|>ened.  No. 2, Vol. 1, of the labour Gazette, published by the Dominion  Government, is at hand. It is full of  infoi mation of interest to laboring  men, and is published at Ottawa  monthly at the nominal pi ice of 20  cents per yeai. It should be read by  every worker.  One smelter is running steadily in  the,Boundary at Grand Forks, and  some time after the first of the year  two others will be doing business near  Greenwood. Still a third is now projected at some point not yet settled,  and it is claimed will be running some  time in the spring.  I Mississippi   j Missouri   Montana   >'<bro��)iii: :,...

MUNICIPAL WORK BEGUN.  - East Saturday th(; cityTcouncil of  Phoenix met together ;for the fust  time, and began the work of adminis-  , tering the affairs of this place���which  is destined to become some day one of  the most important in the mining dis-  ��� triits of British Columbia.  The council i.s core��|>osed of men  whom the Pioneer believes have' the  Lest interests of Phoenix at heart���men  ��vho havemade heavy investments here  . and whose success is identified  with  that of the town.   Those with a.\es to  ��� grind will undoubtedly bring pressure  to bear'to,have the council favor them  ���to turn their grindstones, as it were.  Whether they succeed remains to be  ���seen.   ,  There are many rocks that the new  municipality should take good care to  ^ *$eer clear of: many of these can plainly  ' J>e seen, but some of them are obscur-  ' ��L   That our city fathers will have a  weather eye alert for them is certain,  and it is to be hoped that these danger  iwints will be given a wide berth.  Fortunately there are many precedents in young cities in thispart of the  province whose experience Phoenix  '���an profit bv. and the Pioneer is of the  opinion that we will profit by them.

Morrin.���Mr. Morrin is  a native of the Province of Quebec,  having been born near-Montreal in  theyeari86g. For a number of  years he was in the grain business in  Manitoba and , the Northwest Territories, coming to the Boundary country in April, 1899. . In August r-f the  same year he came to Phoenix, formed  a partnership with J. E. W. Thompson, and has since been the head of,  a most successful general merchandise  business. Mr. Morrin is quiet and  unassuming, but a good business man.  James Punch.���Mr. Punch may  be said to be the father of the council,  being the.oldest member, in the election last week receiving the largest  number of votes. He was born in  Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in 1S42, and  came to British Columbia in, 1870.  Residing at New Westminister for a  number of 'years, he held important |x>-  sitions. For.-two years he was in the  Dominion Government service, having been superintendent of the telegraph construction to Barkerville. For  several years he was a member of the  provincial legislature, and has had  considerable experience also in municipal matters. It will be four years  next March since Mr. Punch first  came to the Boundary and Phoenix.  He will be a most valuable member of  the City Council, where his past experience in this line will stand him in  good stead.  Business men and others of Phoenix and  vicinity are hereby requested to exercise discretion as to the employment of non-union carpenters; as otherwise, it may be considered  necessary to place those delinquent in this respect on the unfair list.

The following facts about Phoenix tell the story of what capital has already accomplished in the chief  niinin" camp of the Boundary. There are yet many promising prospects well worthy of business like  exploitation. - -      '  Phoenix itself and the camps to which it is the nearest banking and business  point, are now shipping 4,500 tons of gold-copper ore per week, or 225,000 tons  per year.  The Knob Hill and Old Ironsides, situated in the very heart of the town, are  alone shipping 600 tons daily, or 4,200 tons per week.  The B. C. mine i.s shipping 150 tons daily, or over 1,000 tons weekly.  Other properties, such as the Golden Crown, Winnipeg, Athelstau, etc., are  shipping not less than 50 tons per day, or 350 tons per week.  The ore shipments from Phoenix alone far exceed the combined output of all  other mining camps of British Columbia, outside of Rossland.  Yet Phoenix is only in its earliest infancy.  For further information, address,  A. HENDERSON,  Th.e   Watchmaker   and  Jeweler, is doing the��fin-  est. quality of   work  in .  the Boundary country.
