RICHARD McBRIDE  Building   Most   Conveniently  Arranged.  For the'Tjrst time in the history of the  corporation of the city of Phoenix",-the  members of the city council were able"  at last Wednesday's regular meeting to  gather and transact business with some  degree of comfort. Heretofore, the  city fathers have be��;n without a home  of their own, but the new city hall  now being nearly completed, part of it  is being occupied. " New furniture was  obtained, and both City Cierk Matheson and Chief of Police Docksteader  are most comfortably situated for the  transaction of the city's business. Even  the three strong cells are claimed to be  more comfortable than the old ones.  Quite a lot of business was transacted Wednesday evening, there being  present-beside the city clerk, Mayor  Rumberger and Aldeimen Mai shall,  Birnie and Brown.

Robert I<\ Green, chief commissioner  of lands and works, were visitors here,  arriving by private conveyance from  Grand Forks, in which they were accompanied by George A. Eraser, M.  P.P. -Theparty was on' a trip through'  the interior of the province, as is the  custom - annually. After spending  some time here, and meeting a number,  of the business men, the ministers continued to Greenwood, whence they left  for Midway, Hedley, Princeton, Penticton, Vernon, and thence to the  coast again. In both Grand Forks,  Phoenix and Greenwood, they met the  leading Conservatives, and looked also  into different matters vyhich were  brought to' their attention by residents  of the several places visited. The  premier was not a little pleased at the  evidences of substantial progress made  in the Boundary since his last visit to  this section.

Bowen,' resident engineer of tlie,Great  Northern, regarding the non-completion of sidewalk work on School street,  replying to one from the city clerk, the  clerk was instructed to respond that,  as the work had now been waiting  some two years or more, the city was  goiiig on with its completion, as it was  urgently needed before snow came to  otay, and the cost would be charged to  the Great Northern. This was all  tinder the agreement made with the  railway company by the city.  The city clerk was ordered to rebate  taxes on the lots on which fireballs  were, located, for the" years 1904 and  1905,'and the request ofthe volunteer  fire department, made through O. N.  Galer, secretary, to appoint W. H.  Dockstaeder as fire chief, was acceded  to. The council/ in response to another request of the same organization,  authorized ordering two Call.ighan  nozzles and half a dozen'helmets and  coats lor the fire brigade. Aldeim in  Marshall spoke feelingly on hi* experi  ence with fires, and with the others  was willing ��o grant the fire boys anything in reason. - The chief was ordered to make a systematic inspection,,of  stovepipes throughout the city.

The  premier and chief commissioner of  londs and works visited and inspected  the building when in the city last Sat-  nrday, and were pleased with it.  ' Some street lights were ordered  changed, and crosswalk ordered built  to the city hall itself. Jas. Marshall  was refunded $95 on his license, overpaid, and the council ordered a number of copies of the Holiday Number  of the Pioneer for distribution abroad.  Flnanclil Stfitcmcut..

Hodges, of the Granby Consolidated, placed another order  for a large piece of machinery, with its  attendant parts. The order was given  to the Jenckes Machine Co., of Sherbrooke, Quebec, for a double conical  drum, electric hoist, of 250 horse  power. It will have a capacity of raising a load of five tons.unbalanced from  a depth of 1,000 feet, but'there will be  two of the five ton skips operated in  balance. The contract calls, for the  delivery-of the hoist on board the cars  at Sheibrooke in three months.  " This new hoist will be the largest of  the kind inthe Iloundary, there being  no other ol ihis character in this section will),-ihe exception of that at the  Snowshoe', which is 150 horse power  rated capa. iiy. '-"��������� '���   ���  This hoist'will he installed at the  collar of the new main three-compartment shaft, to be locatechon the Granby flat. It will be operated by the  '250 horse power electric motor, the  order for which was placed last week  with the Canadian Westinghouse Co.,  Ltd. 'I'he third large ore crusher,  aiso ordered last week, will be located  so as to handle the ore that is hoisted  from this shaft, and will also be operated by electricity.    It   will  Last Saturday night at ten o'clock.  A. B. W. Hodges, superintendent of  the Granby Co., came to an agreement  with the smeltermen in the employ of"  the company, regarding the eight hour,  day, which they applied for some  weeks ago. The subject has been  under consideration between the pat ties  directly affected, and several conferences have been held to talk it over.  There was the best of feeling on the  part of each, and it carries out the  reputation which Mr. Hodges has  earned in the past of having every consideration for the men under him.  The matter has now been submitted  to the directorate of the company, and  will go into effect when ratified.  'I'he result is as follows, taking: the  place of the old regime, in which  many ot the men worked twelve hour  shifts : There will be three shifts of  eight hours each, and a reduction of  ten per cent in the wages of all employees with the exception of laborers  receiving $2.50 per day; the carpenters  and machinists, who will continue to  work ten hours daily, will have eight  hour shifts Saturdays.  It is probable that the change in  hours will result in the employment ot  some 50 or more men at the Granby  smelter, when it goes into effect.  Mike Callahan and Dan Bresnahan  have almost completed their fifty foot  contract in the Preston shaft.  Electric hoists for the Preston and  Crescent mines will arrive in Phoenix  shortly, and will be at once installed.  In the Prince -Henry the rich ore  body reached a few weeks ago, holds  up well as the'drift at the 115 foot  level proceeds.  Those familiar with the Skylark  mine assert that it never appeared  better, nor had more good ore in sight.  The force has been increased to 17  men.  For the last week or ten days the  Granby' output has been slightly curtailed, on account of repairs being  made to one or two furnaces. Today  all eight of the blast furnaces are in  operation once more.  Notice is given by Secretary Fowler  that the Granby Co. will hold a special  meeting at the New York office, 52  Broadway, on Friday, December 1st,  for the purpose of, increasing the par  value of the shares from $10 to $100,  increasing the number of directors  from -12 to 15, and transacting such  other business as may come before the  meeting.  Activity gradually increases at the  mines of the Donv'nion Copper Co,  between fifty and sixty men being employed. Arrangements are still being  madd lor the blowing in of the smelter  at Boundary. Falls on or about December 1 st, and ore is sent out occasionally from the various properties, - a reserve being accumulated at the smelter  ���something that the previous owners  never arranged for.  MADE PAYMENT  ON THE APEX  B. C.  Copper Co.  Work.  Continues  F. Keffer Returns From Similkameen Trip.  CESSATION 0P HOSTILITIES.  C P.R. aad Qrcat Narthcra Reatlaj oa Tbelr  Arms.  At Midway, where a merry but  bloodless war was being waged between  the C.P.R. and Great Not thern last  week, a truce has been called, and the  courts will once more be called upon  to settle the matter, seemingly. Sheriff  W. F. Wood, of Kamloops, proceeded  to Midway last Monday, armed with  formidable papers to give the Great  Northern possession of the land, as  per decision of the court at Vancouver;  but when he arrived at the scene of  trouble, five miles west of Midway, he  found it was another block of land that  the trouble was over, so he could do  nothing.  Hundreds of men were kept by both  sides in the vicinity of the Meyers'  creek canyon, the point of dispute, for  several days, and the coast papers  printed lurid accounts ol the battles  about to be fought. Even the photographer was on the ground to keep up  to date. Eventually the Great Northern men were ts>ken off and ordered  back to their woik at various' other  points on the right of way, and for the  time being, at least, the excitement  \ras over.  It must have cost the C.P.R. a few  dollars to maintain that bunch of men,  and the Great Northern also, there being from 500 to 1,000 men in the mix-  up, according to who tells the story.  Public opinion seems to be that the  Great Northern will eventually gets its  right of way over the present disputed  territory, and that the C. P. R. will  have accomplished all it was looking  probably ' for���a little more delay in construction  be some time in.the spring before this by the rival company. Meantime,  new machinery is all installed and in everything is lovely at the seat of hos-  operation. tilities.  COMING AND GOING  (under Coustiuction.)  Born, to the wife of John Crawford,  Sept. nth, on Brooklyn avenue, a  daughter.  G. A. Evans, editor of the Grand  Forks Sun, was a visitor in the city  last 'Sunday.  W.

Yolen Williams, who spent  last Sunday in camp, returned to Spokane on Monday.  Frederic Keffer, of the B C. Copper  Co., returned to Greenwood this week  from an extended trip to the Similkameen district.  Mrs. J. L. Martin returned��� Sunday  from, a two months' trip to Spokane,  where she placed her daughter Mar-  jorie in high school.  A. R. T. Lackie, chief engineer ot  the Midway & Vernon railway, is expected to return from a trip to New  York city this week.  George Elkins,' who has been down  through "Washington, Oregon and California for the last three months, re  turned to Phoenix this week.  Dr. W. O. Ducton, on the railway  construction hospital staff west of Midway, was in the city Monday. Dr.  Foster, of Greenwood, is now assisting  him in the work.  : A. R. Pope, of Midway, managing  director ofthe Midway & Vernon railway, was in the city Tuesday,   accom-1  On the return of Frederic Keffer  from a two weeks' trip to the Similkameen district this week, it was learned  that the B. C. Copper Co., which has  been developing the Apex gioup near  Camp Hedley for a couple of months,  has made the first payment on the  bond on that group, the work done being sufficiently encouraging to warrant  the company in going on with operations. Provisions to last five months  are being taken to the Apex from  Penticton, and Foreman Hall will continue opening up the group. One or  two shafts have been sunk, and ��satis-  factory values have been found in the  ore.  Mr. Keffer also visited the Sunset  group, on Copper mountain, near  Princeton, where his principals are  doing considerable diamond drilling,*  supplementary to the development performed on the group this last season.  At the Emma mine, Summit camp,  operated by the B. C. Copper Co.  also, a new gallows frame, ore bins,  etc., are being put in, and it is more  than likely that an air compressor will  be installed by the time that electric  power can be obtained from the Bon-  n ing ton Falls power line, now building  into the Boundary from the Kootenay  river. This mine has proved to be  one of the most satisfactory properties  in the Boundary, for the amount of  money expended on it, being ownecL  by" the Hall Mining and Smelting Co.*  and the B. C. Copper Co.  Ta Wark New York Claim,  : W. W. Armstrong, a travelling man,  representing the wholesale clothing  house of W. R. Johnston of Toronto,  was in the city this week, on his usual  rounds. Mr. Johnson is the owner of  the New York claim, on which what is  known as the New York townsite is  located, adjoining the city, and it is  now said to be the intention of Mr.  Johnson to start systematic development work on the property in the  spring, spending fiom $25,000 to $50,-  000 thereon. The New York adjoins  the Brooklyn mine, and it is said by  those acquainted with it to have a  large body of ore.  Profitable Custom House.  There are probably  few  small   custom houses in the  province   that   are  more profitable than that in   Phoenix,  with an expense of but one man.   This  panied bv P. M.

'  Ottawa officials ' seem   to   have .an  idea, as a few ministers.at Victoria did  once, that the major  part  of British  Columbia is  located at the coast, and,  they act accordingly.     The  result  is  that  all  officials,   practically, are ^expected to reside at the coast���and jhe  rest of the province suffers.    It took'  the   provincial .government    officials  years to find out that Vancouver and  Victoria were not the whole thing, and  that  the  interior   needed   and   'must  have more than passing attention.

There can be no manner of doubt  that the present government of British  Columbia is the most satisfactory and  stable  enjoyed   here  for many years.  When   Premier   McBride formed* his  govemment-'two or  thiee  years  ago,  <and   finally-was endorsed   by. a.slim  margin; dire disaster was predicted fcr  him,   especially   by   his   friends   the  enemy.    And   tho**e  so-called fiiends  lost no opportunity to make it as hard  for. the premier-as possible, to carry on  the.-business  of the province     From  --alpha to omega they went", the  entire  .category of obi-tacles, but were unsuccessful in their desires. -  '  The business of  the   piovince  was  placed  on > a  stable basis as fast as it  could bedone, and there was retrenchment-wherever it could be-made without  impairing  the  usefulness  of the  service.     The old Older of things,was  done  away   with',   where  all kinds of  reckless expenditures were made  without giving thought of lhe morrow.  Mr  McBride might well have been in Missouri at some time, for he  had   to' be  "shown.",_And this  lack of ability'to  show him the benefit to  be  obtained  from   certain 'grants desired by some  parties, has saved the province   many  thousands, not to say millions of dollars.    The government   is  conducted |  on strictly business .lines, for the.first,  time, and the  expenditures ,.*ire kept  within   the   income,   also for the first  time in its history.  Today Mr. McBride has the confidence of the majority of the people,  and many Liberals aie fair enough to  admit this, mudi as they would like to  prove the contrary. The premier and  his colleagues are to be congratulated  by all, and the better condition of the  . province generally is one of the first  results of the policy inaugurated.  several administrations agoing-to tLe  nail at Victoria.

And l^awson is right.'  As a plain matter of fact, the great  life insurance companies of New York  have become  such  tremendous financial undertakings that the loss of the  money referred to does not  materially  affect them, any more than the loss 'of  two or three  millions or  more  would.  affect the  standing  or   credit  of the  Bank   of  England   or    the  Bank  of  Montreal.    They are ail of ihem  pef  fectly s -und and solvent, and able   to  pay all claims as they mature.  The investigations are a good thing,  for they will result in sloping the leaks  whick if continued indefinitely,   would'  spell   ruin   for  the  companies.    But  they have not reached any such   stage  yet, and in the  light of developments,  nill not be permitted to reach it. They  will, in   time, be better and   stronger  than ever.    This is the opinion of the  world's foremost   financial authorities.  Cases have been known where  men  have dropped policies because of these  exposures, and when   they  died   their  . loved ones  were  the  sufferers.

"it is  probably the best building" of its kind  erected by any labor organi/atidn in  the province, and the union has recently sent out a statement of the condition of finances regarding thebuild-1  ing, the cost, probable income, etc.  The hall is being erected as a stock  proposition, there being 3,000 shares  of $5 each. 1 he union itself takes  $5,000 in stock and individual members and friends have taken about  $4,000 "more. " Last "Saturday the*re-  ceipts of the union were neaily $1^200  alone'." We take ihe"foflo��inR*Irani  the prospectus which has been issued  under authority of the union :  The issuing of this stock is for  the purpose of build ng��� *a -^suitable  Miners' Union Hall- and Rooms* in  Phoenix, B C.  ���V The present hall occupied by the  Union is the property of the Union  and was erected aoout five vear<* ago at  a cost of $4,000, stock being issued in  800 shares at $5 per share.  This hall has been used for Union  purposes as well as for^entertainments,  such as dances, pU\s etc , it Wing the  only hall in this town suitable for  these purposes. The hall has also  been rented by a secret society and by  various unions besides the Miners'  pnion, and has been made use of to  ;such an extent by tne people-of Phoenix that the Union was able to buy  back all the stock some tinie ago  This means that the building has been  a paying concern of something very  nearly amounting to 20 pe'r cent per  annum.  With the growth of the town and  population the needs of the people  have also increased, and it has betn  found necessary to have new, larger,  and more suitable premises.-. -Phoenh  Miners' Union therefore decided to be  first in the field once more, and determined to erect at once a building suitable in every way for all needs, and as  a result there is now in 'course of  construction a structure which, when  finished, will bV a'credifto'oar town,  or even to any of the large"cities,'-:  The  building   occupies   -a/ corner  site in  the  most .xentral'Tppsition^in  town.

In deciding on this'"site, Phoe-  lix  Miners'   Union   did a   very   wise  tlvng,- as   it  is 'possible'  to   view tlv-  ���xiiiding from anv part of the town, and  vh-re is a great   advantage  in   having  ;.'ii-h a central-position. ��� ... ���������������  There are already established in  'hoenix. lodges of the. Fraternal Orders  :>f Free 'Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights  uf Pythias, Eagles, and Good Templars ; also branches of t 'the various  unions, such as Miners' Union, Carpenters, Cooks arid ^Waiters,- Trades  and Labor Council, Industrial Workers  of- the ^ World, '-a'rid ' the*��� Sb'eialist  League. Most of these organizations  use the pi esent Miners' Hall as a lodge  room, and this has been'a "splendid  source of revenue in the past. .  The new building consists-of��� first,,  on the ground floor, a well appointed  Auditorium which is to be used as a  theatre, concert hall, and lecture-room.  The dimensions of this Auditorium are  97 feet in length by 43 feet;-in; width,  including stage room of 'Tj'boo square  feet, and it is capable of seating 600  people. The floor rises to-.va*rds tne'  back and has a total slope of 10 feet,  so that an unobstructed view of the  stage can be had from every seat in  the room. .     .   ~   L   ..  Every precaution has been taken for  the safety of the audience in providing  three doors ot exit, which,-when taken  into acccount with the fact thai tlje  theatre is 011 the ground- floor and-.'coh  tains "no galleries, will go a long way  towards allaying the fears of the most  timorous. The number of shows  visiting this town has averagi.d about  twenty per year and they have been  liberally patronized, in spite of-'the  fart that the old hall was a, theatre of  the most primitive character and "had  no real stage accommodation."  The second floor consists of a spacious find elegant Ballroom, -having a  floor space of 4,000 "square feet, ������with  an elevated alcove for the iise of the  orchestra. Suitable Cloak and Toilet  Rooms have also been provided in connection. It has been the custom.in  the past to have from three to Tour  balls every month, and these have been  so well patronized that \ery frequently  the overcrowding has been so great  as to- become positively annoying',".so  much so that as many as half of those  present have been unable to take pah  in sonie of the dances. There/fore,  every effort has been made in designing  this new floor to see that ample space  accommodation should be supplied to  cope with the undoubted increase in  patronage which this handsome dance  hall will attract. There is also on this  floor, in the front of the building, a  btoreroorh  which  will  readily attract  tenants on account ot the-central situation of the entire building.  The third or top floor has been verj  carefully partitioned, and from it a considerable amount of revenue will alsi  be derived. In addition to the neat  ind .elegant I.odiie Room on this floor.  therf"will alio be a well ap;x)inted Reception Room with Kitchen in connection. ' The dimensions of the L*oclg��  Room'are 55 feet'in leng'h by 25,feet  in width, and those of the Reception  Room 45 feet by 18 feet, and these  rooms will be well furnished so as to  be suitab'e for the purposes for which  they are intended.  A-> tlready mentioned, there art-  branches of all tlie most impo'tint  fraternal orders in the world in Phoe  nix. and tluse bodies will readily -taku  advantage of the inducement offered  them in having a lodge room fitted out  exclusively for their various requirements as this room will undoubtedU  be.  ,-���*The"* "Reception"Room"will*'always  accommodate as'large'company'wiih ,ts  70 lineaUfeet^of table.length, and will  bejmich in demand for banquets, .and  socials of a 1 descriptions /  . There are also four smaller rooms  on thisiloor, one of which is provided  with an anteroom, and will be used as  a lodge room for the smaller order**  and unions. Another room, wjiich  is 25 feet by 15 feet, wilL be ve'rv  suitable as an office for a 'awyer or insurance auent. The third room, 14  feet by 28 feet, has-already been applied for to be used as a club and read-,  ing room, and the remaining room  will be rented by the Miners' Union  for ifs secretary. -  The building will be heated throughout by heated air, there bein^ a brick  furnace in" the basement for this purpose. Electric light has a'soTjeen introduced, as being the most economical manner Of lighting at hand.'
