PRESIDENT   FLUMERFELT  RETURNED  Also Talks Encouragingly of Hie Outlook for  the (lunby Co., Which Will Soon Pay s  Dividend.  A. C. Flu model t, assistant to President S; II. C. Miner, of the Granby  Co., has returned to the Uoundary  from a business trip to Montreal, Boston and New York.  Mr. Flumerfelt said : "I have little  to add to the recent official statement  of Jay P. Craves, general manager,  outlining the policy of the company.  A fully attended meeting of ihe board  of directors was held during my-recent stay in New York. The general  policy of the company and many mat  tors of great importance lo the country were under careful consideration,  but for obvious reasons cannot be  made public at present. Suffice it to  say that the policy of the Granby  will continue to be a progessive one,  and that a dividend will be forthcoming in the immediate future.  "Generally speaking financial con  ditions in the east are not very promising. In many industries a lack ol  orders has already led to a reduction  of lorces. The same tendency exists  in railway circles, it being estimated  that, between October first and the  end of the year, over 20,000 railway  eiiipiojees will hive been discharged.  It is gratifying to note that the eastern  shareholders of fie Granby seem perfectly satisfied with their investment,  and the fact that Graiiby'-.Tiares stooU  so well during the recent financial  stress, has been generally and most  favorably commented upon.  "The outlook for copper," resumed  Mr. Flumerfelt, "is very encouraging.  John Stanton, adiiector of the Granby  Co., and who is regarded as the world's  authority on copper, has been discussing the situation. He stated in the  press that consumers of copper have  been buying from hand to-nioutb. The  demand for copper is firmer and, in  my opinion, the mills will soon be  placing forward orders."  Mr. flumerfelt is also President of  the International Coal & Coke Co.  operating at Coleman, Alberta. While  east he visited Pittsburg, Pa., and  awarded contracts for plant and machinery sufficient to enable the colliery  to maintain an initial output cf 2,000  tons of coal daily. Mr. Flunierfeit  had the benefit of the professional advice of Klliott & Baton, the leading  Pittsburg firm of consulting coal mining engineers. Mr. Baton, it will be  remembered, inspected the coal areas  of the International Coal & Co. several months ago, prior to preparing detailed plans for development, equip,  ment, etc. In a newspaper interview-  Mr. Baton estimated the amount of  bituminous or coking coal in sight on  the company's property, and located  above the level of Old Man river, to exceed'64,000,000 tons.  It is   understood   that   the   initial  equipment of the colliery for a preduc-  lion of 2,000 tons of   coal   daily   will  cost about $150,000. This will also include the erection ofthe initial battery  of 104 coke ovens.    The  contract for  the  supply   of   the   entire   electrical  equipment   including   motors,   generators, and electric locomotives has been  awarded to the Westinghousc   Electrical and Manufacturing Co.,   of   Pittsburg.    The orders for  the  remainder  of the plant were placed   with    other  firms as follows: A chain car  haul for  conveying the coal from   the   mine to  the tipple, the   Link   Belt  Machinery  Co.,   Chicago; crossover   dump,   the  Mill iV- Mine Supply Co., Chicago; engines, the Phoenix Iron    Works   Co.,  Meadsville, Pa.; pump*, ihe   Stillwell,  Bierce and Smith-Vaile Co.,   of  Day  ton, Ohio; fan for ventilating purposes  he Clifford   Co.,   Je.mette,   Pa.;   bii  slide fixtures, the Connellsville   Manu  facturing and Mines Supply Co., Con  nellsville, Pa.    In every instance  do-  ivory before March 1st,   1904, is j uar  anteed.    The boilers and some  struc  tural steel will be purchased   in Can  ada, bat the contracts have not yet  been awarded.  "I succeeded," said President Flum-  erlelt, "in engaging E. E. Reynolds,  of Wilkesbarre, Pa., as general superintendent of the International Coal  & Coke Co. Mr. Reynolds will report for duty on the first of January  next. He is the Uuited States Government Inspector for the Wilkesbarre  Mining Division, an experienced mining engineer and an authority on coke  and bituminous coal.  "We have aimed at installing only  the latest and most improved quality  of machinery and other equipment.  Electricity will be the motive power  ,in and around the mine, and we ought  to be producing 2,000 tons of coal  daily before, next .autumn. With the  opening of springI hope to see a pay  roll of 600 men at Coleman."  How would you liked to have been  the coal man, or the wood man, or the  plumber this week? Early in the week the  mercury hovered about zero for a couple  of days, with a considerable addition  to ihe snowfall, sb that sleighing js  pretty good now'ill-over the Boundary.

With the flotation of seven millions  of dollars a few days ago in New York  city by James J. Hillv president of the_  Qr��iu M6rtl-ii>m railway, it is confidently believed that the preliminary moves  in connection with the final arrangements for the completion of the construction of the V., V. & E. railway  from the Boundray to the coast, have  been accomplished.  It is common knowledge, at least in  the Boundary, that the right of way from  Grand Forks to Phoenix has been secured, and that something has delayed  the actual construction, not only to  Phoenix, but on through the Similka  meen to the coast.   ���  It is evident that the funds just  raised are for the purpose of this construction, as well informed railway  men, and those in touch with the situation, assert that there is no other system of extensive new operations for  which so ���much money would be required. Mr. Hill has a habit of not  letting his right hand know exactly  what his loft hand is about, and be has  exemplified it in this V., V. & E. construction matter. But it seems certain  that both hands are now pretty well  acquainted.  It is more than two years since the  preliminary surveys were made for this  railroad to Phoenix, and no later than  this year it was announced that the  line would be built and that at once.  In tact permanent surveys were completed in four foot of snow last winter.  Now, however, the indications are that  something is about to happen, and  something that will be of the greatest  benefit to the Boundary in general  and Phoenix in particular.  Fire Department Benefit.  The Cosgrove Orchestra, assisted by  Miss Agatha Berkhoel of Chicago, contralto, and May 1 ludson-Mavner, violinist, will appear at Miners Union  Hall, Decembnr 1st, under the auspices  of the Volunteer Fire department.  This company is one of the very best  musical organizations, and is highly endorsed by the press and public wherever it has appeared. Seats will be on  at ^l'hos. Brown's.  From Nelson, B. C, Daily News. Nov. 18. 1903.  The Phoenix Pioneer on Saturday  last started on the liftn year of its existence. The Pioneer is one of the  most welcome papers that come to the  exchange table. It always has something new to tell about the mineral resources of the Boundary, and tt'lls it  well. During ihe four years it has  been in existence it has done a great  deal to foster the development of the  district in which it is published. May  the Pioneer live long and prosper.  Probably the most economical mining yet done in the Boundary district,  at least as far as heard from, is now  being accomplished at the Oro Denoro  mine, in Summit camp. Smith Curtis,  managing director of the Oro Denoro  Mines, Limited, owning and operating  the property, is authority for the statement that, including all costs whatsoever, the ore is being placed on board  the cars at the mine at 40 cents per  ton, or less. In figuring the cost of  producing a ton of ore from the glory  holes or quarries, every item of expense is included, with the result that  each 150 tons of ore are being loaded  for shipment for between $50 and $60.  There are a number of mines being  operated in the Boundary, and many of  them are qnarrying propositions, hut  if the managers of any of them can  get their ore on board cars for any  such figures as the above, that fact has  not yet been made public.  This week a representative of the  Pioneer took a run over to the Oro  Denoro, to note how matters were progressing at this property, which is beginning to make its mark among the  shipping mines of the Boundary.  Smith Curtis happened to be there on  one of his periodical visits, anil eour  teously gave some information about  tha property. .        -.    .,  "' Since work was resumed at the Oro  Denoro in July of this year, the development has been confined to the  immense surface showings, first cut  through and exposed wlien the Phoenix branch of the C. P. R. was constructed. Here was-found plenty of  ore, hundreds of thousands of tons,  that could be cheaply broken down and  loaded into the railway cars���ore  with a high per centage of iron, which  the custom smelters practically desired,  and with some gold and copper values.  A treatment rate w-as arranged and  shipments began, with satisfactory results. Work at first was all done by  hand drilling, but now a serviceable  seven-drill compressor has been installed.  All this time the old workings ofthe  mine ��� the   result   of    development  some four years  or   more  ago���were  not  touched.    The    old   shaft,   sunk  from the top of the hill, to the surprise  of practical mining men, and the three  tunnels driven into the hill below, were  left for the time being, there being no  conveniences for shipping.    However,  when the  compressor  was   placed in  commission,   a   less   number  of men  could get the same amount of ore that  had  been -broken  by means of hand  drilling, and a machine with two shifts  was started in the No. 3 tunnel, some  200 feet from the portal, to crosscut to  a point   directly    under   the  surface  workings, whence a raise will be made  and a large  area   ol ore opened up.  It was anticipated that some  200 (eel  of  crosseulting   would   be   necessary,  but already, with about 80 feel of this  work, an excellent quality of shipping  ore is being encountered.  In' transportation facilities, the Oro  Denoro is peculiarly.' fortunate.    The  open quarries being alongside the C. P.  R. track, it was a simple matter to run  two spins for   the  accommodation   of  the property, whence loading  is  now  done into dump cars with   the  assistance of a small hoist and an incline.  A third spur   may be  run   below  the  dump of the No. 3 tunnel before long.  At  any  rate,   the V., V. & E. survey |  runs in  just   the   right  place  to  tap  these lower-workings, and Mr. Curtis  says   he   has   no   doubt   but that this  railway will be built in the spring, giving the mine an outlet to the smelters  by   two  railways���probably   the   first  mine in the Boundary to be  nately situated.  J ;  j    Boundary Mining Notes, j  It is said that the new, brick smokestack, being built at the Mother I>ode  smelter, will cost about $7,060.  The No. r steam shovel has been  worked double shift since the Granby  ore shipments have been increased. ;  . A second hoist is being installed at  the limma, Summit camp, and ore  will be shipped from the south side of  the claim.  Four men are at work on the Sally,  near Boaverdell, one of the good claims  up the West Fork. Ore Will be sacked  and rawhided.  The Helen, near Greenwood, owned  by the Helen Gold , Mining Co., has  been bonded by C. A. Phillips, and  development started.  On the 1 ith instant the third steam  shovel was shipped from the makers,  the Thew Automatic Shovel Co., of  Lorain, Ohio. It is expected to arrive  next week, and will be set at work. at  once near the No. 1 shovel at the No.  1 tunnel level.  VOLCANIC DEAL  IS COMPLETED  Prominent North Fork Group  To Be Worked.  MICHIGAN CAPITAL TAKES IT OVER  Diamond Drill Work Begins Next Week-  Deal Also Made for Evening Star Group  in Wellington Camp.  ALL SIX ARE  RUNNING NOW  The Granby Smelter Reducing  2,000 Tons Daily. ���  SIXTH FURNACE STARTED THURSDAY  Canada's Largest Smeller Now Doing Greatest  Business In lis History With Prospects of  Long Run Ahead., <  Tliia ��cck-wora "was received that  the long pending deal for the acquire  ment of the well. known Volcanic  group of claims on the North Fork of  Kittle river, had been completed. W.  A. Harkin, of Grand Forks, was wired  by his brother. Dr. Fred Harkin, of  Marquette, Mich., lo go on and make  the contract for the diamond drilling, which bad been decided upon,  with Boyle Bros., of Spokane, and it  is expected that by next week active  work along this line will be under way.  W. A. Harkin will bo resident agent  for the acquiring system.  Last summer Dr. Harkin. Dr. O. G.  Youngquist, and Alex. Mead, M. E.,  all of Marquette, were in the Boundary,'  and after examining the Volcanic,  decided to take it over on a basis, it is  understood, of from $90,000 to $100,-  000. A number of interests had to  be looked after, however, in completing the negotiations, and this required  some little time. -This work has now-  been completed to the satisfaction of  all interested, and the Volcanic Mining  and Development Company has been  formed to work the group, having been  organized under the laws of Michigan.  Ten other claims besides the Volcanic  are included in the deal.  hi addition to the Volcanic group,  some members of the new company  have also taken a bond on the evening Star group, ift Wellington cam]),  owned by John K. and Robert H.  1-V.iser, of Phoenix. 'Phis claim is now  being worked, the showing of copper  ore being particularly favorable. A  wagon road has been constructed to  eoniho with the road to Hartford  Junction, and test shipments to the  smeller will be made this winter.  It was expected that the last and  sixth furnace of the Granby smelter  would be placed in blast early this  week,, but :?the final 'connections were  not made'till Thursday, when the entire works, with the reverberatory fur  nace and the stand-of two copper converters were in commission at the  same time. The ore shipments were  gradually increased this week from  1,200 tons daily to the present rate ot  2,000 tons per day, the requirements  being 64 cars of Phoenix ore every 24  hours.  Manager Galer, of the Granby Co.,  informs'the Pioneer tliat everything  about the smelter, since the full complement of furnaces was placed in  blast, is running smoothly, that then-;  is sufficient coke on hand,' and that a  long run seems to be ahead of the'glar-  est copper smelter in Canada.  One matter needs to be adjusted,  and that is the forwarding of the coke  from the East Kootenay collieries more  promptly. There has been some com  plaint from that section that the C.-.P.  R. is not furnishing the necessary rolling stock fast enough, and the same  thing is heard from Grand Forks. The  smelter lio��-cvcr, now has some 4,00c  tons surplus,  and before  that is  ex  hausted the.C..l\ R. will /doubtless  have appreciated the necessity of doing something tipjrelieve the, car famine.  At the Granby mines a little short  of 400 men are now employed, while  at the smelter enough more are on the  payroll to bring the total number in  the employ of the company to aboil*  700.  W. P. Tiernay & Co. brought in  their grading outfit to Greenwood this  week, to put in the spur- track to the  converter building at the Mother Lode  I smelter.  Albert I. Goodell, who recently resigned   from   the  superintondency of  the Boundary Falls smelter, has been  retained as the consulting engineer. Pie  is now making his home .in Spokane.  A recent shipment from the Providence mine of 40,-104 ponnds of ore  to the Trail smelter, netted $4,403.89  or over $220 per ton. This was ond  ofthe best cars yet sent out'from this  high grade property.  H. H. Shallenberger is preparing to  work the Moreen claim, in South  Deadwood camp, this winter. It adjoins the Buckhorn and other well-  known claims, and hits a 60-foot ledge  with good copper values.  Hal Cole and G. F. Steele, owners  of the Defiance, have extended the  time of the bond given this year to  W111. Fowler. The latter is starting  for Scotland, to spend the holidays,  after which work on the Defiance will  be resumed.  Harness  and    hamessmakers    supplies, Granby  Exchange.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

In New York city the Tammany tiger  is in fuller control than ever, aince the  recenj election. And it requires an old  resident of that city to fully comprehend  what 'that means.  The new Republic of Panama being  a fact, it is now up to Uncle Sam to  require those hotheaded Central Amer:  icans to be good, so that he can proceed with the digging of that canal.  Next Thursday is the American an  nual Thanksgiving Day, as well as the  day on   which  the British Columbia  legislative Assembly will begin to do  business once more at the old stand.  Evidently the good people of Phoe  nix appreciate the excellence of the  local .hospital, by the way they turned  in to .assist in the benefit last week,  and -,by the way they , turned out to  patronize it. The Pioneer believes  that the confidence is not misplaced.  The Rossland Miner has it figured  out that railway construction on the  V:, V. & E. line to the coast will be  "begun in dead earnest early in the  spring. It seems to us that we have  heard something of the kind before.  May it not prove a false alarm this  time.'

Three concentrators will be running  double shifts around Sandon during  the winter.  The executive of the Provincial  Mining Association will meet at Kam-  loops next Monday.  It is reported that the LeRoi mine  which netted $17,000 in September  lost $20,000 in October.  The Rambler has struck a large bodv  of ore 800 feet perpendicularly from  the apex of the vein.  Last week the Slocan ore shipments  approximated 500 tons, making about  13,000 tons for the year.  The Kaslo smelter is looming up  once more. J. C. Ryan says he has  secured the capital to build it.  ..'������.' When the concentrator is completed  the Silver Cup and Nettie L, in the  Lardeau.^vill start shipping on a large  scale.  As a result of ihe first 20, days' hin  ofthe stamp mill at the Eva mine, at  Camborne, 395 ounces of gold were  obtained.  Ir is reported that a strike of rich  ore has been made at a depth of 60  feet, in a shaft now being sunk at the  Sullivan mine.  It is expected that two large zinc  separating plants will be erected at  convenient points in the Slocan during  the summer of 1904.  The development of ledges in a  number of promising properties on  Wild Horse creek, and east of Fort  Steele, continues to give promising results. '  Messrs Hughes and' Dimmock, lessees of the Ore Hill niines, near.Yin.ir,  owned by Godfrey Birtsch, of Nelson,  have shipped a gold brick weighing  over 15 ounces.  Three feet of palena have been encountered in the No. 8 tunnel on the  Last Chance in the Slocan. It assays  170 ounces in silver and 60 per cent  lead. It sprang from the floor of the  drift, indicating a big shute below.  The Bacl��okir.group.at_Three Forks  has been bonded for $55,000. The  property js owned, by George Petty,  the locator of the " Monitor. It is  stated that the bonders agree to do  $12,000 worth of work during the first  twelve months.  The output of the Wilcox mine,  Ymir, for the month of October is  again in excess ol any previous month.  The amount saved on the plates i>  represented by a gold brick weighing  325 ounces and of an approximate  value of $4,000.  Ore shipmeets from Rossland camp  for last week were: LeRoi,4o8o lonsj  Centre Star, 1290; War Eagle, 1200;  Le Roi No. 2, 950; Le: Roi N0.2,  (milled), 350; Jumbo, 250; Spitzee, 30,  I. X. L., (milled) 140; Kootenay, 80.  Total for the week, 8970. Total for  the year to date 349,190.  A lucky hotelkeeper has cleared up  $50,000 for the season in Cariboo.  P. McKennan of Barkervill some time  ago bought the Thistle gold mine, on  Eight Mile Lake. He joined with  few old timers in the district in actively  working it, and;his share of the final  cleanup for this year totals $50,000.  The Canadian-American Company  has 640 acres of dredging leases on  Gold Run Creek, in the Atlin country,  from which they hope to make a big  pr..fit. This summer they, built the  largest dredge ever used in gold mining in Canada. It is a monster concern, cajiable of handling 3,006 yards  of gravel a day.  An order in council has been passed  by the Dominion government permit-  ing the entry into Canada free of duty  of orange mineral, dry white and red  leads made from lead produced in  Canada. In the refined process the  substances mentimed are extracted,  and it is felt only proper that Canadian products of this kind should be  allowed to come into the country  again free.  miles away, within half an  hour after  its conclusion.  Two St. Louis policemen who fired  at an escaping malefactor, hit each  other, and are now congratulating each  other on the fact lhat they were able  to hit something and the lead was no!  wasted.  ������'  "Bound Canada," commanded the  teacher, and the up-tQ^daiej^eograjiher  of the eighth grade promptly arose  and said:  "Canada is bounded on the north  by ice, on the east by a preferential  tariff, on the south by a free country  and on the west by Lord Alverstone."  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  Good advertising always makes interesting reading. .  Good advertising is the mainspring  of business,     ,  There is enough poor advertising  done to increase the value of good advertising.  While the timid and conservative are  waiting for business to "pick up," the  hustling advertiser picks up business by  persistent persuasion!'  Anything that produces favorable  talk about a firm or its goods is good  advertising.  You should if you don't. It gives the news  of the Boundary. It works for the Boundary. It is owned by the editor and not by  any clique or faction. It is worth $10.00.  It costs only $2.00.  Tonkin Lost tils Position.  The announcement is made that J.  H. Tonkin has severed his connection  with the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company of which he was manager for the  last year or two. G. G. S. Lindsey, of  Toronto, one of the directors of the  company, is now at Fernie and temporarily in charge of affairs. The new  manager, A N. Reeder, was expected  to arrive some time this week.

An Ohio justice basts his claim to  re-election on the fact that during his  term of office he married 2,600 couples  quite   a number of which remained  married.  ���.''.-'        ''   ���  By the use of the electrophone  the  London "Mail" had a verbatim report  of Chamberlain's Birmingham speech  on the streetsof the metropolis,   137  The United States census  of 1890  collected some very complete information about the number of persons and  the amount of capital engaged in the  national industries and  the  value  of  their    output.     Briefly   summarized,  they are as follows :  8,285,618 persons were engaged in agriculture. The total  value of the  farm, products  shows that the amount produced per capita was. .... .$297 00  521,806 wete engaged in the   .  forest industries (logging, sawmills and the like).  The net  value of the produce per man  engaged was............. .   425 00  4,476,884 were engaged.in the  manufacturingindustries. Deducting the cost of materials  and the miscellaneous expenses, the. net .value of the pro- \  ducts per man was. .....   764 00  74,439 were employed in the  mining, milling and smelting,  of gold, silver, copper, lead      j , ;  and zinc (coal and iron not      ;; . ���  included here). The value of  the output for each man employe d was...... .......   1,910.00  Average return per man engaged���  $297 in agriculture; $425 in forest industries; $764 in manufacturing; $r,-  910 in metal mines.  In the census year the mines of the  metals named returned on an average  to each of their workers six and a half  tirjies as much as the farms, four and  and a half times as much as the forests  and two and a half times as much as the  manufacturers. This was the average  return, in spite of the enormous amount  of unproductive labor that is thrown  away in ill-advised mining ventures;  while the workers in other fields had  all the. advantage of labor:saving machinery, and of the highly developed  manufacturing economies which key  up every man's production to the highest possible pitch.  In the first six months of this year  $99,751,258 was declared in dividends  by 149 different mining concerns, although labor troubles and, a badly  fluctuating market for the various pro  ducts have had to be contended with.  Can any other branch of business show  a like record? If they can there is no  record of it.  Chinese Must Quit Mines.  "The Chinese must get out of the  coalmines." That is tlieultimatumofthe  government to the Dunsmuir collieries.  Premierand Minister ofMines McBride  has again decided to make an .energetic attempt to stop the coal companies employing Chinamen under ground  they being , considered unsafe workmen.  Senator to Ship.  " Although work on the Senator.Sum  mit camp, was started only a week ago,  an area 50x80 feet lias been scraped of  wash, exposing the ore, says the Grand  Forks Gazette. John Rogers, who is  in charge for the Granby Co., expects  to ship within the next ten days. A  new wagon road, saying a haul of- one  third of a mile, is being built to the  Rathmullen spur, on which the rails  will be relaid at once. Mr. Rogers  will continue the stripping of the surface. The ore is high in iron and will  serve as an ideal flux.     ; .

It would simply have  been impossible tu have found room  for more people in the hall, many  corning from Greenwood and K|]olt  10 enjoy the programme and |he  dance which followed, the results  being over $250.  It was expected that the programme  would be choice, and there was no disappointment 011 the part of the audience, if the applause and encores can  be taken as a criterion. Everyone of  those who took part. did well, the  choruses and solos being first-class,  and the fancy dances being particularly appreciated. After the completion of the entertainment, the hall was  cleared and dancing was enjoyed for  three or four hours. Just before the  dose of the programme, J. L. Martin,  secretary of the hospital, made a  statement of the condition and plan  of work of the hospital, which is here  given in full.  Mr. Martin's Remark?.  It is proper that the public should  be apprised of the status ofthe finances  of its Hospital at least "once a year,  and certainly there can be no better  time nor place than at a benefit given  by the Hospital.Ladies' Aid, for such  a report.. Before entering upon the  finances, theie are some ..things to  which I wish to direct attention.  We are in a mining camp and many  of us engaged in mining. This business is 'cla'sacd' by' all   iii3umiK:c   cuin-  panies'as hazardous.- -We are not surprized to hear of an accident at any  moment. Who, therefore, is there  among us so well and strong as to be  able to say, "I have no need for the  Hospital?" Should there be such a  person present, I admonish you, be  undeceived. 'Tomorrow's rising sun  may find you being cared for by willing hands in that life-saving institution  The Phoenix 'General Hospital is  incorporated under the "Benevolent  Societies Act," receiving a small per  diem benefit from the government for  maintenar.ee, and, in the fullest mean  ing of the term, is a General Hospital.  I understand the government extends  aid to none biit General Hospitals.  The books are open to the public and  any citizen who contributes towards  ihe maintenance of the hospital can  inspect-them at'any time. It is cup  ported by the government, fees for  private patients, donations and public  entertainments.' - Its .''doors are open to  the sick and maimed���rich and poor  alike. The greater the poverty the  greater the need for a general hospital  like ours. No applicant will be turned  away from its doors because be \>  without means or fiiends, but in repre  senting the public, and while we are  full of charily, we feel keenly the responsibility of that trust; and from a  business point of view, will so far as  possible, require all patients to secure  the hospital against loss of f?es.   ���  1 wish to state, and that, too, with  out ft ar of contradiction, that I'hoenix  General Hospital is the peer of them  all between the Rocky.'mountains on  the east and the Pacific coast on the  west. I will even challenge Vancouver or Victoria to produce a more  capable, painstaking and reliab'e slaff  of nurses than ours. The records  speak more eloquently than any words  of mine. Since the hospital was  opened to the public, June 1st, 1902,  there have been received : n 1 treated  to Novimber.ist, 1903, 156 patiei ts  Among them have been many delicate  and dangerous operations, blood  poisoning,   lung,   typhoid  and   pneu  monia fevers have been treated, and  but three deaths recorded. , One the  result of an accident from which cause  the patient died the next day after entering the hospital. The other two  were hopeless cases- of tuberculosis  entering the hospital. I challenge the  Northwest to produce a record equal  to it. ,  Financial Statement.

There will be needed in the immediate future, in addition to cash on  hand, to pay for septic tank and steam  healing plant about $750.  The Hospiial Ladies' Aid to Nov.  1 st, 1903, has contributed $819,90. So  far as I am able to estimate this entertainment" will net them at least  $250.  During the year we have added to  our equipment $329.75. Maintenance has cost, per month about, $425.  Improvements and repairs $250. Septic tanks and steam heating plant  about $1,100.  Respectfully submitted,  J. L. Martin, Secy-Treas.  I am requested on behalf of the  ladies' Aid, to thank all the ladies  and gentlemen who hftve so generously  and earnestly assisted in making the  entertainment the success it has been.  Also to heartily thank all who have  donated refreshments. Especially I  am requested to thank the Phoenix-  Pioneer for valuable space and many  pleasing notices.  Also the Benevolent Order of Eagles  for donating the use of the hall tonight. Also, the Miners' Union for  the use of the hall for several rehearsals  and other favors.  Some of the 16U1 century dames  will now serve their hosts with coffee,  punch and cake.  Now. all who favor extending the  Ladies' Aid a vote of thanks for their  splendid concert ���make it known by  stanaing and every ...one. "bile the  chorus leads us, join in singing "God  Save the King." While we are singing  the ushers will kindly remove the  chairs  and  prepare  the  floor  for ye  dance.  Notes.  From the latest reports the net returns will probably run over $275.  Miss Annie Pierce enjoys the honor  of having sold the largest number of  tickets.    She disposed of close to 100.  Marshall & Shea donated the punch  for the occasion.  . A number desire the entertainment  to be repeated, bnt for a number ol  reasons this is not practicable at the  present time.  A fiercer night could not have been  chosen, but it made no difference to  tlu'se who wirhed to aid our hospital.  The ladies in charge desire to  heartily thank one and all who assisted  in making the event the overwhelming  success that it lumed out to be.

It la often quite a strain  on good manners to be obliged to reinforce a suggestion that should- have  been adequate In Itself.

A line is now talked  of as the Nicola, Kamloops and Simil-  kameen railway, which is being promoted by Kamloops and St. Catharines (Ont.) people. The company is  said to have secured a subsidy from  the Dominion government for forty-  live miles, and will try to obtain  further aid from the Provinc'al government.. If the Similkameen is travers  ed in the near future by all the railway  lines now mooted for -its development,  that district will resemble the railway  maps of Illinois and Ohio.

His constituents believe he will prove  a good representative, his bride believes  he will prove a good husband, and the  Pioneer believes that their beliefs are  well based.  *"w ���  J. H. Tonkin, for awhile manager  for the Crow's Nest Pars . Coal Co.,  and who was largely responsible for the  labor troubles in the East Kootenay  coal mines a few months ago, which  caused .the coke famine, has had his  name erased from the company's payrolls. His Pennsylvania methods were  found to be a misfit in the wild and  wooly west, where unwritten law, bared  on simple justice, is more potent than  the law of courts made to coniform  to the might of tyrannical managers  or superintendents. The discharge of  Mr. Tonkin may be due to the fact that  the directorate had concluded to act  upon the advice of the commission  .which investigated the labor troubles  referred to, that "corporations and individuals employing labor extensively  should take care not to place men ol  overbtaring and domineering dispositions in charge ot their employees,"  ���M  Uncle Sani is liable to get into deep  seas of trouble if he continues to ex  tend fatherly aid and vhelter to all the  revolutionists and seceding elements  of the numerons liliputian republics  and island governments of the. earth  Now come the San Domingo revolutionists asking for recognition and, incidentally, the protection thereby guaranteed. Uncle Sam should go slow  in this direction, or he may find nijre  cosset governments on his hands than  he can properly care for.
