October shipments from the mines  of the Boundary show a decided increase over those for the month of  September, being more than ten per  cent of an advance. In September,  according to the figures compiled, the  outputTwas 138,964 tons, while for  October 146,731 tons were sent out  from district mines. The latter figures  also constitute a new record for one  month's shipments from Boundary  mines, it never having been exceeded  before.  The Granby's October record was  over 86,000 tons,,or 12,000 more than  for September. Snowshoe shipped  about 2,500 tons more in October  than for the previous month. The  Dominion Copper Co., having stopped  operations during the month, shows  up with a much smaller total than in  September, while the mines of the  British Columbia Copper Co.���the  Mother Lode and Emma���show a  slightly larger output for October, by  about 750 tons, than for the previous  thirty days.  The figures in the appended table,  giving details of ore shipments in tons  from the different mines of the Boun  dary for October, do not, of course, include the custom ore sent to Boundary  smelters from outside the district, nor  ore from Boundary owned mines from  the outside:  COMING AND GOING  lor  the  up from  mmmiimm  Granby mines        B.

Hedley, of Nelson, commissioned by the mines department at  Ottawa, to compile information regarding the industry from Manitoba to the  Pacific coast, was a visitor in Phoenix  yesterday, and took in all the large  and small mines in his quest for infor  mation, carrying away also copies of  the last two annuals issued by the  Pioneer, for statistical use.  Mr. Hedley who was in charge of  the Nelson smelter for some ten years,  has been pretty well all over British  Columbia on the present mission, the  Boundary being the last, but not least,  important section visited. When the  reports are all in from the different  parts of Canada by the several assistants, they will be compiled and published at Ottawa, and will constitute a  most valuable work on the mineral industry of Canada.  Do Yon Want Ten Dollars?  In another column will be noticed  the advertisement of the Carney Copper Co., and the offer ofthe president,  J. L. Martin, of $io as a Christmas  present for the best criticism of the  advertisement itself. Here is a chance  for some one to pick up ten dollars���  just like getting money from home, if  you are the lucky one. There is no  limit lo those who may criticise, the  only requirement being that a clipping  of the advertisement of the Carney  Copper Co. be sent with the criticism,  to the editor of the Pioneer by mail,  and be received by December 24th.  The successful competitor will also be  presented with a year's subscription to  the Phoenix Pioneer.  P. F. Roosa, paymaster  Dominion Copper Co., was  Boundary Falls .yesterday.  W. C. Thomas, manager of the Dominion Copper Co., was up from  Boundary   Falls  this  week.  Mrs. W. H. Covert, of Grand Forks,  returned home yesterday, after a ten  days visit with Mrs. W. J. Porter.  James. McGregor, of Nelson, provincial mining inspector for this district, came in from the . Kootenays  Tuesday.  J. W. Grier, of the Greenwood  Ledge, and A. M. Davidson, of the  Greenwood Times, were 'visitors in  camp last Saturday.  Mrs. J. L. Martin returned Monday  from a visit to Spokane, while Mr.  Martin was at the Carney copper  group, near Mullan, Idaho.  Henry E. W.'Behnsen, M. L. A.,  of Victoria, was in the city yesterday,  and states that he finds general business  in his line, cigars, very satisfactory.  Jay P. Graves, general manager of  the Granby Consolidated, who was delayed in returning from a visit to New  York, arrived iri Spokane last Monday.  R. P. Williams, of Rossland, the  veteran'machinery.'-man,' who was here  Tuesday, will shortly.open an office at  Vancouver for the firms he represents.  William J. Louttit, president of  Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8, went  over to Nelson this week, to attend the  Moyie miners arbitration proceedings.  Andrew G. Larson, superintendent  of the LeRoi mine at Rossland, was a  visitor in camp Monday, with Gus  Ehrenberg, a Coeur d'Alene mining  man.  Duncan Murray and N., S. Baillie  left yesterday for Nova Scotia for some  months, the latter going to Earltown  and the former to Scotsburn Station,  P-ctou Co.  Dr. George M Foster, who has been  located at Greenwood for about ten  years, took his mother to New York  this week, and on his return west  thinks of locating in Vancouver.  Miss Edith Henderson and G. W.  Allen were married in Greenwood  Monday, corhirig fo Phoenix that night  cvt*cl--p��*Tig-o\��t-ott���tho~morning���train.  Mr. Allen is freight conductor  on   the  C.

Harry E. Macdonell, C. P. R  general freight agent at Nelson, for  the last ten years, was making his  fjnal visit in Phoenix last Saturday,  before going to St. John, N. B., his  new location.  PAII>$!,0��0  IN ACCOUNTS  City   Dealing    With  Epidemic Bills.  Legal Opinion Regarding Liability of the Municipality.  Boundary Mining Notes  In one way there was not a large  amount of business done by the city  council at last Wednesday's semimonthly meeting, but nevertheless over  a score of accounts were audited by  the finance committee and ordered  paid, running over $1,000 in the aggregate, many of them being for small pox  epidemic expenses. Those four lonely  cases, none of them fatal, bid fair to  cost the city in excess of $1,000.  There were present at the meeting  Mayor Matheson and Aldermen Birnie,  McKenzie and Porter, and city clerk  Stephens submitted the following  financial report of mattets since the  last meeting:  On hand in bank, Nov. 6. $2,087 57  On hand, cash  27  72  Total     ...         $2,115  29  Receipts since the last council meeting were as follows:  Lumber sold       Road taxes         Police court   ....

Provincial jail account    ...  $��S  00  240  00  "7  S��  282  5��  8  00  2  00  Total  The  mayor  and       $665  00  Aldermen Birnie  and Porter were appointed a committee  to adjust the claims made in connection  with the recent outbreak of small pox.  J. L. Martin, one of the owners of the  old postoffice block, was directed to  provide some way for tenants to take  care of waste, etc. Then the finance  committee audited the following  accounts, and on being found correct,  ordered the city clerk to pay them:  DOMINION CO.  MEN EN ROUTE  Expected in Boundary  Next Tuesday*  Q. Q. S. Lindsay Is Relieved.  At a meeting of the board of directors of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.,  held in Toronto last Tuesday, Hon.  George A. Cox, for nine years president of the company, resigned, and G.  G. S. Lindsay, the manager of the  company was made president. James  D. Hurd, a mining engineer of Duluth,  with long experience, has been appointed general manager of the company, and R. M. Young was made  secretary.  Thus the prediction made some  time ago that there would be a new  manager for the company, has come  true.   Mrs. Charles A. Arnott will leave  for Nelson today, where she will spend  a week.  Resumption     of    Operations  Looked For.  Asked in regard to the matter yesterday by the Pioneer, Manager W. C.  I"homas,-of the Dominion Copper Co.,  said he has received information that  the officials of the company will arrive  here next week Tuesday or Wednesday  from the east, they having been detained  longer than expected in making the  irip accross the continent. In the  party will be Warner Miller, president  of the company, from New York; H.  H. Melville, vice president, of Boston;  M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer,  of Salt Lake, and possibly others.  Further than this, Mr. Thomas could  t-ive no information.  The report is current, however, that  the Dominion Copper Co. officials  ���expect to resume operations at the  mines now very shortly, but no confirmation of the report was obtainable  yesterday, although it was persistent  in several quarters. Operations at  both mines and smelter have been  suspended by this company for several  weeks, pending the arrival of the  officials of the company from the far  east. It is generally thought that the  financial flurry in New York prevented  the gentlemen from leaving the east at  an earlier date, but they are now on  the way.  Lizzie Reem        $202  50  D. B.

Shipments from the Emma mine,  Summit camp, have been somewhat  reduced of late.  Supt. Shaefer, of the Strathmore, is  prosecuting development, as for many  months past, and recently ran into an  excellent ore body.  This week a number of improvements have been made to the interior  of the offices of the Dominion Copper Co. in this camp.  Granby smelter this week once more  made a new record of 22,527 tons for  the seven days, being an average of  3,218 tons each 24 hours.  It is claimed that residents of  Greenwood alone have put some  $30,000 into Boundary coppers since  the recent slump in the east.  Snowshoe's ore shipments for this  week were 2,780 to the Trail smelter  and 2,700 tons to B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter���a total of 5,480 tons.  Work at the Maple Leaf, Franklin  camp, ha? been discontinued for the  winter* about ten men <being laid off.  This was the only property working in  that camp.  One day this week over 3,000 tons  of Granby ore were taken out of  this camp by the Great Northern  alone, to say nothing of that hauled by  theC. P. R.  J. P. GRAVES ON  THE SITUATION  Believes the Worst Is  Oven  Any One Can Make Prediction  On the Copper Market.  James and Biner have been engaged  to furnish music for the dance of the  Tefpsichorean club next Wednesday,  and also for the ball of the Grand  Forks smeltermen on November 14,  Total        $1,124 64  City Not Liable.  Mayor Matheson this week received  the following letter from David Whiteside, solicitor, regarding the liability of  the municipality for certain claims  made on account of the small pox  epidemic:  "The city is not liable for the board  of guests at a hotel while the same is  in quarantine. Seciion 78 of the  Health Act provides that nurses and  other assistance be furnished at the  cost of the patient in the first place, or  at the cost of his parents or other  person or person liable for his support,  if able to pay the same; otherwise that  the cost is chargeable to the municipality. Under this section the city  would not be liable to pay for the  board of persons quarantined unless  they happened to be paupers, and unable to provide for themselves. As to  the city's liability for goods destroyed  by fumigation, Section 84 of the  Health Act, states that compensation  may be given for the same by the  proper authority. This enactment is  merely permissive and not obligatory  upon the Municipality. It would  seem, however, that where the destruction took place for the benefit of the  Municipality as a whole, that the  Municipality should compensate the  person whose clothing and other effects  have been destroyed in the manner  above mentioned."  Copper Close to  15 Cents.  New York, Nov. 2.���Notwithstanding the heavy buying movement over  the last two or three weeks, no sign of  weakness in copper prices has developed yet. Sales of electrolytic copper were made Friday at prices close  to 15 cents a pound, or on about the  same basis reported on the preceding  day. One large producer reported  sales of several million pounds, but the  buying is not as pronounced as it was  earlier in the week.  Buying by local consumers, while  not large, has been more pronounced  than at any time since the improvement in the situation.  Treatment at the B.C. Copper Co.'s  smelter this week amounted to 7,205  tons, as follows: Mother Lode ore,  3,950 tons; Napoleon,' 154 tons; Snow-  shoe and custom, 3,101.  Values from the Golden Eagle mine,  up the North Fork, the only shipper  over the North Fork extension of the  Kettle Valley railway, are said to run  from $60 to $100 per ton.  Col. T. L. Dickason president and  chief owner of the Crescent mine, is  expected here today or tomorrow, with  some friends from Chicago, on a trip  of inspection of the property, it being  just a year since the colonel was in the  Boundary.  W. S. Macy started yesterday to  drive to the Stemwinder mine, Fair-  view camp, where he is establishing a  boarding house at the urgent request  .of the management and of many of  the men, numbers of the latter having  gone to work there from Phoenix.  At the annual meeting of the Pathfinder Mining Co., held a few days  ago in Grand Forks, the following  officers were elected: President, W. K.  C. Manly; vice president, G. H. Ruth-  ford; secretary-treasurer, R. F. Petrie;  board of directors, Dr. Kingston, Thos.  Newby, and A. W. Fraser.  During the month of October the  Snowshoe mine sent out in excess of  25,000 tons of ore, a new record for  that property. Of this ore 12,670  tons went to the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter and the balance 12,355 tons,  was sent to the Consolidated Co.'s  smelter at Trail.  J. L. Martin, who returned this  week from the Carney copper group in  the Couer d'Alenes, says the long  tunnel is now in 660 feet, and a new  300-foot contract has been let, the  contractors being glad to take part pay  in shares of the company, so well does  it look. It is expected to reach the  ore body in another 200 feet of work,  and Mr. Martin continues to be greatly-  pleased with the appearance of the  property.  The financiers of New York, who  have been for several weeks suffering  from more or less acute attacks of  nervousness; bordering on prostration,  are now well advanced in the convalescent stage, according to Jay P.  Graves, president of the Spokane &���  Inland Railroad company, and manager of the Granby Consolidated, who  has just returned from a trip in the  east.  "When I left New York, last Thurs  day, the flurry in  financial  and  commercial  circles  was   beginning to be  replaced by more normal conditions,"  said Mr, Graves in Spokane this week.  "Bankers were recovering from the excitement   and   incidental   worry    occasioned by the unsettled conditions  to the extent of being able to go home  and  refresh   themselves   with   sleep.  Matters looked serious for a time,  but  at the time I left New York  bankers  and  business men generally were expressing themselves  as  satisfied   that  the   worst  of the situation] was over  arid that the danger  point  had been  passed.    Confidence was generally expressed that the conditions would continue to improve.    As  for   myself, I  believe that while it may be some little  time before business regains its normal  condition, the recovery is certain.  The Copper Market.  "As for the copper, market, any one  is as competent to make a   prediction  concerning  that   subject   as   I   am.  When I was east the  selling agencies  had about disposed of all the  copper  on hand, the buying   being   for  shipment to European countries, principally  to Germany, and to  China.    If this  copper is for use in those countries the  depletion of the stock in this country  on that account will result   in   proportionate   scarcity   and   the   price   will  advance  accordingly; ��� If,  however, it  is being bought up as  a  speculation,  with the idea of reselling to  American  manufacturers, there   will   likely   be a  decline in   the  advanced  price  when  this   copper   again    appears   in   the  market,  "The difficulty of making anything  like accurate predictions of the future  state of the copper market lies in the  fact that the metal is indestructible.  The prospective production of copper  is capable of being calculated from reports of the extent to which it is being  mined. There is an unknown quantity  which can not be estimated. This old  copper is worn out and discarded.  Whenever there is a scarcity of new  copper and the price advances this  scrap copper makes its appearance in  the market."

When Sir William Mulock was succeeded as post master-general by Hon.  A. B. Aylesworth, and the latter finally  by, Hon. Rodolphe .-Lemieux, in the  general shuffling that has -been going  on for years in the cabinet at Ottawa,  the public hoped that a  man had at  last been placed at the head of the  postal department who would introduce tbe idea> and aI1  right  thinking  business-like methods; give the public  ��" . do   likewise.    It   is   a   serious  problem, and   growing more' so   each  Sam, vyho spares no money to give a  good postal service, and does not endeavor to run this department in order  to show a surplus or even to make  money. '���-.'-'���  Peopling British Columbia.  In the language of the day, it is up  to the residents of British Columbia to  make an effort to secure the most desirable kind of emigrants.    The world  knows that hundreds and thousands of  what nearly all are agreed  are "undesirable   citizens"���namely,   Japanese,  Hindoos   and   Chinese���have    been  coming to our shores in   the  last  few  months; and worse than all, they cannot   be stopped   under   the   existing  J treaties.' It is growing  to  be such a  menace, in fact, that Rudyard Kipling  visited Vancouver, it was said  on behalf of the Imperial government, to investigate, and the   Dominion  government is also taking the matter up���and  in the course of time, perhaps before  we are all grayheaded, something may  be done to limit the influx now going  on.    Meantime, however, the  steady  stream continues, whether we like it or  not. ,y, ��� .-...:-.������������.���:������������;��� .-���������,.-..���  Kipling certainly struck the keynote  when he said, on his recent visit, that  the solution was to get immigrants  from the mother country, many of  whom would be only too glad to make  their homes in British Columbia if  they knew ofthe opportunities/The  Salvation Army is now making an or  ganized effort to this end, and the first  contingent of several hundred selected  immigrants will reach this province in  two or three monQ"ts7~"TrTis"fs a step"  in the,; right direction, and .others-  should be taken of the same kind.

The production of copper by the  Butte mines in October was but 8,376,-  200 pounds, 2,953,600 less than the  estimated output for September and  16,787,600 pounds less than the  monthly average of 27,541,260 pounds  for the first sjx months of 1907.  The October output was the smallest  in the history of the big mines. None  of the small companies produced any  copper and very few leasers shipped  any ore, though a number have been  mining and storing their output, as for  example the operators in the east Butte  group. The La France and Pittsburg  and Montana plants have been closed  for nearly two months.  The October production was but 32  per cent of the average for the first half  of the year. For the first ten months  of 1907, the output of the Butte camp  shows a decrease of nearly 84,000,000  pounds or nearly 27 per cent from the  production in the same period of 1906.  Reduction la Copper Output.  The copper mines, jf the United  States, Mexico and Canada continue to  report a large reduction in output, says  the Wall Street Journal. Three-fourths  of the present calendar year has passed  and production of copper on the  American continent for this period  shows a decrease of qver 62,000,000  pounds for tlie nine months' period.  For the month of September, it is  estimated that the production of copper in the United States, Mexico and  Canada, at 68,388,800 pounds, which  *>������<*  ��>.���<-��  (y|<i   0"<aV Oi  compares with 97,962,000 pounds in  September, 1906, a decrease for the  ���month of 29,573,200 pounds, or 30  percent. Of this 29,500,000 pounds  the Butte camp contributes 18,000,000  pounds.  The total continental production for  the first nine months of the year is  estimated, in pounds, as follows:  1907. 1900.

There is a slight tendency  to curtail at Lake Superior, but the aggregate is not a significant amount.  The Arizona and Butte mines will  show a very heavy falling off in their  production this month, while from  Utah camps reports come that the  mines there have already discharged  1000 men.  The American continental production at its maximum is placed at 1,200,-  000,000 pounds of copper per annum.  The October output will probabjy be  at the rate of only 600,000,000  per annum. It will not take  many months of such a restriction,  under reasonable business conditions,  to remove whatever surplus now exists  and again restore metal prices to better  figures.   ...'.���'".

The local  dealer recommended Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy and guaranted, 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.  better service, regardless of the cost,  and not conduct the department as  nearly like a pawnbrokers' skinnery as  possible. Seemingly, however, with the  last few months' experience, we are  doomed to disappointment,and another  shuffle is needful to get things into  decent working shape.  One of the first acts of Mr. Lemieux  was to increase the postage on newspapers to the United . States several  hundred per cent., making it just that  much more of a burden to publishers,  and generally being an unmitigated  nuisance in every newspaper office in  Canada. American periodicals coming  to Canada pay the same rate, but the  American post-office officials chortle in  glee as they think that the largely increased revenue conies from the Can-  Ha**-. adians and goes into  the  pockets of  Americans.  a^ Recently, to cap the climax the de  partment has  issued  an  order   that,  dating from last April, postmasters will  receive a flat commission  of 4  cents  each for issuing money orders, instead  of the quarter of one per cent heretofore charged.    In Quebec or the east  the new rate may be beneficial to the  small offices, but in the west the postmasters find  it different, and they receive    much    less    than    heretofore.  Italian,   Swedish,   French,   Slavonian,  Austrian, Turkish, Japanese,  Chinese,  Hindoo and other   money  orders aie  issued, up to $100, and the p.m. must  wrestle with them for   the  munificent  remuneration of 4 whole cents  each.  Notwithstanding   the   statement  that  the new rate will equalize with the old  one, it runs far behind in British Columbia.    In other words, Mr. Lemieux  has skinned down the remuneration of  -    postmasters a iittle more, instead of increasing  it  materially.    The   salaries  have been raised a trifle, but the new  '   rule discounts that..  Why the postoffice department can-  . not be conducted for the benefit of the  people, no matter what it costs, is a  . question that is often asked. Complaints come in from all over the west  on the inefficient service. This is one  respect in which the Dominion government can take a lesson  from  Uncle  month, with the'arrival of a fresh shipload of Orientals at Vancouver or Victoria. If there is a better solution of  the problem, it has not yet been  brought forward. We can get along  without any more Orientals than we  now have, arid we have plenty of room  for the brawny sons and daughters of  England, Ireland and Scotland.  A Good Liniment.  When you need a good reliable liniment try Chamberlain's Pain Balm.  It has. no superior for. sprains and  swellings. A piece of flannel slightly  dampened with Pain Balm is superior to  a plaster for lame back orpains in the  side or chest. It also relieves rheumatic pains and "makes sleep and rest  possible.    For sale by all druggists.;  Canadian Copper.  Ottawa.-���Superintendent Cleave, at  the royal mint, announces that a Montreal firm and an Ottawa one had  secured contracts for supplying the  copper that will be needed for the first  coinage at the new mint. There were  six or seven tenders.  Officials cannot give out the names  yet, but say they took advantage of the  very low copper market and got it at  a low rate. The intention is. to call  for tenders every two or three months,  as it is needed, both, as regards gold,  silver and copper. The silver is', to  come from TraiyjB^C^jmd-Cahalt^���������  ���������Another���very 1 m portan t. announcement made is that officials will; be able  to get metal they need-sufficiently refined in Canada, and will not have- to  go across the-line, as at first thought.  Canadians have risen to the occasion,  and the officials have every reason to  believe now that they can get metals  in Canada without going to the. States.  As contractors are not through with  the work, the mint cannot open before  Jan. i, next.  Methodist���Sunday School at 2:30  p. m. evening service 7130 p. m.

Gaily, who is starring  this season in Mr. Walker Whiteside's  comedy success "We Are King," is a  direct decendant of a family of inventors. He is the son of the late  William Gaily, who, with his brother  Merritt, are famous the world over.  Several years ago they invented and  patented, the Universal printing press,  the most needed machine of the time.  Hut this is only one of their many bun  dred inventions which have brought  them great results.  David Gaily first showed signs of an  inventive mind when he was thirteen,  inventing a special bicycle lamp, which  was considered marvelous for a boy at  that age. At fourteen he entered  Henley college in Brooklyn, for a three  year course in electrical engineering.  At this school, during his sophomore  year he made a mechanical drawing of  the Gaily Universal printing press,  showing the late idt-a ofthe trip rollers.  This drawing is now at the patent  office al Washington, D. C.  Since the death of his father he has  always watched with much interest the  work of his uncle, and while visiting  him the young man made a suggestion  which gave the great inventor the idea  how to introduce battery power into  the instrument, known as a relay and  repeater, for the aid of long distance  transmission over telephone lines.  Manufacturers and men of science,  with whom he has come in contact,  have oft-in advised Mr. Gaily to give  up theatrical work and devote his time  with his uncle, as his suggestions prove  clearly that his inventive mind if  brought out would, equal that of his  worthy ancestor.  Mr. Gaily will be seen at the Opera  house, Phoenix, on Monday, November 11 th, in "We Are King," under  the management of Mr. C. P. Walker.  A Reliable Remedy lor Croup.  Mrs. S.

CATARRH of tho kidneys la a very  ranch w.-jxlocteci disease.  It.
