Full forces are reported to be working at the Freemont and Strathmore  mines, with encouraging results.  Wake Williams, superintendent of  the Granby smelter, is off on a trip to  St. Louis and other   American points.  Work has started at the Crescent  mine, Skylark camp, with 10 men  under Supt. M. I. Feeney, where  drifting at the 300 foot level is proceeding,  A dozen men are at work at the  Jewel mine, Long Lake camp, drifting  and raising being done at the 1 20 and  330-loot levels. Manager Roberts  has gone on a trip to Ottawa.  Numbers of the 50-ton ore dumps,  ordered by the C P. R. many months  ago, have arrived in the Boundary,  and are now awaiting the reopening of  the mines to be placed in use.  The Westinghouse electric locomotive, for use at the 400-foot ievel of  the Granby mines, arrived a short  time ago, and will ne used in connect- w;tn  ion with the Victoria shaft when matters are ready for operation.  If the smelter managers in the  Boundary would tell us exactly how  long they will be shut down, says the  Greenwood Ledge, it would enable  the business men to make calculations  and provide for the opening rush.  The last furnace at the B. C. Copper  Co.'s smelter was finally blown out  Tuesday evening, one having been  kept running to clean up around the  works, and get the ore out of the bins,  which, being wet, might have frozen.  At the Granby mines Engineer C.  M. Campbell and his staff are now engaged in making a complete underground survey, it now being possible  to gee at slopes and other places not  available when active operations are  under way.  Tom. Roderick and Adolph Sercu  have been doing some work on the  Summit group in Summit camp, owned  largely by Mr. Roderick and G. VV.  Rumberger. The group has a most  favorable showing, and will be heard  from one of these days.  Thus far about 14 cars of coal, or  over 500 tons, have arrived and been  hauled to the Consolidated Co.'s War  Eagle mine, to be used for steaming  till the electric drive is in operation.  Murdock McIntyre had the contract  and completed the work this week.  For the last month steam has been  used for pumping at tbe Dominion  Copper Co.'s Brooklyn mine. Elec-  city being cheaper, however, and the  company having a minimun contract,  the pumps were changed to the latter  his week, doing away with the expense  of coal.  P.   D.  McDonald  new hotel in Grand   Forks,  Great Northern station.  is   pulling   up   a  in ar   tin-  Last week Friday the directors of  the British Columbia Copper Co. hold  a meeting in New York, but no action  was taken regarding the second dividend, now about due if it is not passed.  The first dividend was 25 cents per  share regular quarterly and 15 cents  extra, and was   paid September 4th.  ���. At the meeting held a month after  the annual meeting of the Providence  Mining Co. at Greenwood, the issnance  of the $50,000 in bonds was ratified,  and steps will be taken at once for  their flotation, after which the work of  sinking the main shaft to the 1,000-  foot level, is expected to be proceeded  The C. P. R. has about finished  putting in the new spur lor the Granby  Co. at the Gold Drop-Curlew claims,  adjoining the Showshoe mine, from  which a large tonnage will be sent  when the_ mines shall have resumed  operations. With its huge ore crusher,  almost installed, and conveyor, this  Granby opening will be right up to  date.  Last week the new ore crusher for  the B. C. Copper Co.'s Mother Lode  mine was received in Greenwood from  the Jenckes Machine Co., Sherbrooke,  Quebec. Ir is patterned alter the  giant crushers in use at the Granby  mines, being a trifle smaller. One of  of the smaller crushers, lately in use  at the Mother Lode, will be taken to  the company's smelter and used fur  custom ore.

Deer Brought  In By  Phoenix Hunters.  SNOWSHOE LODGE  ELECTS OFFICERS  Odd Fellows  WUl  Install  In  January.  Last   Monday   evening   Snowshoe  Lodge No. 46, LO.O.F.,. held its semi  Members of Parties  Out With  Satisfactory   Results.  ���frTO^C5SK^BBHKfr-��  For a couple of weeks last past the  average miner and smelterman���not  to say business man���in the Boundary-  has had an opportunity to rest from  his every day vocation, and commune  with nature, or otherwise, as fancy dictated. With quite a number Jchose to  commune, and while they were at it  they made it worth while, enjoyed  themselves and brought back some excellent bags of game. At least, that is  what several from Phoenix did.  Hunting has had many votaries here  of late, and the Main and West Fork  districts have been the favorite stamping grounds for the several parties that  have been seeking a change in this  way.  Last week Friday R. G Gordon and  William Searle returned from a week's  outing of this kind, having had good  success and bringing back four deer as  evidence of their prowess. Then Ed  black, Ralph Gilbert, Alex McRae and  John Kelsey came in with two deer  from the same locality.  Sunday O. B. Smith, Jr., L. V. Bir-  nie, O. N. Galer and Scott McRae  went over to West Copper camp, and  staying away but a couple of nights,  reported getting a deer.  Thursday V. M. Sherbino and R.D.  Gilbert,   armed  cap-a-pie, started   out  for several days' hunting  in  the West  Fork   country, and *Pat   Burns'   meat  emporium will soon   be adorned with  more   trophies   of   the   chase.      This  afternoon    a   party   including   H.   A.  Munro, Wm. Murray, James   Morgan, j  Silas   Smith   and J. S. Hudson, starts j  out for a   week's   stay in   the   favorite j  hunting grounds, and olher parties also  have the nimrod fever.  The deer so far brought in are of  the mule variety, and the hunters re  port numerous tracks in places where  lh�� animals do mostly congregate.  Cougar tracks are also numerous in  some localities, but so   far  none have  annual election of officers, with the following result, the installation to take  place the first Monday in January:  N. G., Carlton" H. Cook.  V. G., William A. Pickard  Rec. Sec., Walter S. Cook.  Per. Sec, C. VV. Whittaker.  Treas., J. F. McDougall.  On Monday next Thomas limblt-  ton, of Rossland, grand master of the  Odd Fellows in British Columbia, �����"  make his official visit to  Lodge, a joint meeting being held with  the Rebekahs. The Rebekah degree  will be exemplified and refreshments  served. The grand master will also  visit the lodges in Greenwood and in  Grand Forks while in the Boundary.  GREENWOOD 1. O. O. K.  Tuesday evening Boundary Valley  Lodge No. 38, of Greenwood, chose  the following officers:  N. G., Frank  Sp;.aring.  V. G., Ed. Anderson.  F. S., G. B.   Taylor.  Treasurer, E. Foyle Smith.  R. S. F. B. Holmes.  The installation takes place the first  Tuesday in January. Tbe increase in  membership during the term was  about twenty-five, one of the most  successful terms in the history of the  lodge.  Oreeowood K. of P. Officers.  Last Wednesday evening Greenwood lodge No. 29, Rnights of Pthias,  elected the following officers for the  ensuing term. Installation will be  held the first  Wednesday   in Junuaty:  C. C, VV. Rowe.  V. C,  A Rowe.  Prel., D. O. McKay.  M. of VV., Chas. Bierce.  P. C, K. R. S., A. D. Hallett.  iM. of F., A. Lo��.'.ii.  M. of L\, W. Kmhree.  M. at A., K. ]. Vandergrift  I. G., Wm. Lawson.  P. C, O. G., A. |.  Morris*-n.  The prevailing quietude of Boundary Fails was disturbed by a turkey  shoot last week Friday.  It is understood that the C. P. R.  will take 200,000 ties from the vicinity  of Carmi; West Fork, this winter.  The Kettle Valley lines are now  operating two trains weekly on the  North Fork extension, a distance of  some 20 miles.  William Rowe of Gieenwood, is  rapidly recovering from the injuries  received in the runaway on the Camp  McKinney hill a couple of weeks ago.  Last week Rev. M. D. McKee, of  Greenwood, married Chas. Bergstrom  ������.nd Marguerite Johnson, ol Phoenix,  where the couple expect to make  their home.  Greenwood citizens liberally patronized the concert given last week-in  aid of the anti-tubercolosis fund, and  raiM-i.l the sum of $110.50 for (his  commendable purpose.  Outside of the   Phoenix  crew,   the  C. I'. R. is  operating* but  one   train  crew out of  Eholt   nowadays.    Quite  a little general   freight   is   still comin  in over both roads.  Russell Hill, an old timer in the  Boundary, died at his place, eight  miles north of Grand Forks, last week,  aged 47 years. He was a native of  Ulster county, New York.  The Boundary Creek Times perhaps  does not know that the pdstoffice at  Rock Creek was transfered from one  hotelkeeper to another, the only difference being that the new postmaster  is a Liberal and the old one a Conservative.���Ledge.  The recent fatal shooting of Arthur  Langford by his best friend, Donald  McCallum, being mistaken for a deer  in the brush, up the North Fork of  Kettle river, was one of the saddest  things that has happened in: a long  time in the Boundary.  One of the extensive contracts  carried out around Greenwood this  year was that by Smith & McEwen, of  the suburb of Anaconda, who purchased a new site for their general  store business, moved the old store to  the.,location,, and then doubling the  size of the building.  The supplying of ties is becoming  quite an industry in the Boundary,  and some mills are working on this  line alone while there is a slackness in  other orders. The building of the  Grand Trunk Pacific has made a great  demand for railway sleepers, and the  price has gone up till it looks quite  attractive to many. It is understood  that the Yale-Columbia Lumber Co.  has delivered 50,000 ties to this railway, and is now busy on an additional  contract for 100,000 more. Then, too,  the C. P. R. is ' also using many  thousands of'ties in its needed renewals  on lines already built.  ROSSLAND MEN  TAKE OLD SCALE  Assures Operation of  Those Mir.es*  By Two-Thirds Majority Vote  For Less Wages.  Last Tuesday Rossland Miners'  union by a referendum vote consented  to reduce the wage scale nearly to  that which was in effect prior to July  1. The old wage was $3.50 for  machine men and $2.75 for shovellers-,  with the wages of the other employees I  about the like proportion. The new I  scale will be $3.50 for machine men !  and $3.00 for shovellers The scale  which went into effect on July 1, was  $4 for machine men and $3.25 for  shovellers-. The mines closed down  for the day for the purpose of allowing  the employees time to discuss and  vote on the question of the reduction  of wages. The union met at 10:30  a.m. and discussed the question earnestly until noon.  A resolution passed at the morning  meeting providing for going back 10  the old scale was then voted on.  When the union reassembled at 2  o'clock- a referendum vote was taken  and the resolution carried by a two-  third's majority. The mines therefore  will not shut down as has been threatened for some time past, as the management declared there was no profit  since metals went down, under the  higher  wage   scale.    And  under the  lowered sc-ile it will   now be ��� possible  to make a small profit.  Thursday evening the members of.  the smeltermen's    union at Trail, by  a two-thirds  majority,   also   voted to  accept the lower scale of wages in effect  prior to July 1st last.  CLAREYMcPHERSON WE00INO.  Celebrated At Eboll Last Wednesday���Trip to  tbe Coast,  Last Wednesday Miss Louise Clarey  was married to W. S. McPherson, a  C. P. R. engineer on the Phoenix run,  the ceremony being performed by Rev.  J Leech-Porter, of Greenwood, at the  residence of the brother-in-law of the  bride, Thomas K. Needham, at Eholt.  Miss Maggie McPherson, sister of the  bride, of Vancouver, was the bridesmaid, while J. Young, of Trail, sup  ported the groom.  About 30 guests were present at the  auspicious event, the happy couple  leaving on the afternoon train, after a  serenade by the Eholt Tin Band, led  by Bandmaster W. S. Torney. The  honeymoon will be spent in Vancouver  and other coast cities.  Following the ceremony an informal  reception was held and both bride and  groom were toasted. There were a  large number of useful presents received, and many good wishes followed  the couple as they left. Mr. McPherson is well known in the Boundary as  "Happy," and has many warm friends  all over the district.  Notice to Water and Light Consumers.  From December ist and until the  the Granby mines resume operations,  consumers of water and light, other  than business houses with whom special  arrangements have been made, will, receive 15% discount from their bills if  paid on' or before the 15th of the  month.  Phoenix Electric Lighting Co., Ltd.,  J. L. Martin, Sec.  C. V. R. Not Asleep.  For the last week or two the C. P.R.  has been taking material, rails, bridge  timbers, etc., to Midway, and the rails  are to go down, if it is not already  done, as far as the bridge across the  Kettle river, a few miles beyond Midway. No announcement in this connection seems to have been made by  railway officials, but it would appear  as though the big railway company  was getting ready for a lively campaign  e 1       jnf   railway    building    into the   Simil-  biiowsnoe   , c' ���n     , ,     .,   ,.  kameen from the Boundary.     As   that  company now well knows, the Great  Northern, since it opened up the line  to Keremeos, a short time since, has  been getting most of the lower Simil-  kimeen business, and the present activity has the appearance of being the  real article ��� at least for the present.  It remains to be seen whether it will  be kept up for any length of time, or  is merely a bluff, such as was played  p  couple of years ago.

This week the new powder magazine  being built by the Giant Powder Co.,  Con., on the Hank of England claim,  one of the Granby group, was completed. The building is constructed  of stone, with heavy walls and metal  roof, and is bullet proof, being 20N30  feet inside. L. V. Bimie and H. A.  Munro had the contract tor the work,  and although hampered by the weather  of late, have made an excellent job of  it. The magazine is located around  tho hill from the Rawhide and Snow-  shoe mines, near the old wagon road,  and in about as sale a place, and yet  accessible, as could be be found. It  will hold several cars of powder, if  need lie. _       _  Low Kates to East.

Why   the  United   States   government  has    not  inaugurated this plan  before, and thus  patterned   after    the   Canadian    and  English systems  of this   kind,   is   not  clear.    Another    plan    proposed    by  Wm.  J.   Bryan,   the  twice    defeated  presidential candidate, is to   have   the  government insure all  deposits in   national  banks,   the  banks  paying  the  government   a   small   fee    therefor.  This would give undoubted confidence  "* I to all classes of depositors,   something  that seems  to  be greatly  needed   all  over  the  United  States,   particularly  during times of financial   stress,   like  the present.  land and the Boundary, there being no  need for the additional power unless  something of this kind was in prospect.

It is remarkable how many times  Bill Miner, the escaped tram bandit,  who was serving out a life sentence at  New .Westminister, has been captured.  The latest is that he has been taken  into custody at Seattle. Probably the  Seattleites have so many troubles of  their own in these piping times of  peace, that they were glad to dispense  with the valuable services of Bill for  a while.  The Dominion Parliament celebrated  the American Thanksgiving festival  last Thursday''by:'starting up the law  mill again at Ottawa.

J PROVINCIAL.  BEE    F  Beef extracts contain only the flavor  and stimulating- elements of beef���  the nutritive values are lost in the  making-. Baron Liebig-, the inventor  of beef extracts, admitted that. He  said "It is but a condiment and  stimulant, containing- no matter  capable of sustaining life."  That is where BOVRIL differs from  beef extracts.  BOVRIL does contain the nourishment and life-sustaining- elements of  beef as well as its rich flavor.  BO VRILgives strength and nourishment to the invalid.    With its help  you can make left-over scraps into  delicious consommes, bouillons and,,  soups with very little trouble.

The new editor of the Fernie  Free  Press  has discovered  that   it  is  impossible to please every one in print���  something that newspaper  men  learn  pretty   early   in   the   game.    Consequently, Mr.   Pedlar  has decided   to  conduct the paper as he  sees fit, without fear or favor.    Mr.  Pedlar is  well  known in the Boundary,   which he has  visited several times in   the past,  and  now that he has  taken to the quill, he  should make a success of it.  It is a good thing that the Ontario  government is taking up the killing of  a few wildcats that have had their,  habitat in and around Cobalt.

While there is no copper actually  pressing for sale by any of the larger  producing or selling interests, it would  not be difficult to obtain requirements  of large amounts of electrolytic copper  at approximately 13 cents.  Copper interests are unanimous in  slating that the copper trade is in a  position no worse than any other business at the moment, says the Boston  News Bureau. .While production  even at its miriimun in this country-  has without doubt   been   in   excess of  ready market for their   product on the  recent upturn.  Copper and I rnrt  Prrrfuctlnn,  The United.:S-nt'"> will produce in  the currerit .^cali'n'lar \v;ir approximately 27,6po,'ooo tons ( f ,-li classes  of pig iron, which will compare with  16,497,000 tons produced in the year  1904, and 18,000,000 tons produced  in 1903, says the Wall Street  Journal.  The production this year will represent an increase of nearly sixty-five per  cent,   as   compared   with    1904,   the  he Serge of tlie Serges"  consumption,    the  amount    of   metal | largest increase reported in any similar  period in the history of the  iron and  steel industry.  It has been said that the copper industry moves in sympathy with the pig  iron industry, which in many cases is  true, as the following; tabic, giving the  production of pig iron and copper over  theiast thirteen years, will show:  Tons l'iir Iron Po'inds Cop'.r  Production      Production  which will come forward from the re  fineries is being lessened to such an  extent that the margin of over production will soon be very slight.  There is still considerable copper  to be shipped to Europe under recent  heavy sales made by selling interests  on this side.

Doherty,  medical superintendent of  the   public  hospital   for   the   insane,   New   Westminster, for the year ending December  131, 1906,  is   at   hand.    It   says   that  during the year rso patients   were admitted, an increase of 27 over the previous year.    Of these 108 were  males  and 42 females, this   being  the   usual  ratio of the   sexes   hitherto  admitted.  Ofthe 150 admissions, 83 were suffering from the first attack, 26  from the  second, 5 from the third, and . 4  from  the fourth.    In   31   cases'it  was impossible  to   ascertain   the  number of  attacks,   but   is   more   than   probable  that a proportion of these   were cases  recurring.    Fifty-six of those admitted  were married, 12 were in the widowed  state,    74   had   never   been    married,  while in 8 cases it was  impossible to  ascertain the civil   state.    Thirty-four  were Roman Catholics, 96  were Protestants, 13   were  heathens, and   in   5  cases it was impossible to ascertain tbe  denomination.     Five  had   received a  superior education,  85 had received a  common and   high   school   education,  46 had received only   limited   education, while 14 could neither  read   nor  write.  During the year 59 patients were  discharged���55 men and 24 women.  This number exceeds that of last year  by 3, and is the largest number ever  discharged from the institution in any  one year.  Buster's Philosophy.���X.  " Resolved, that whereas I got myself in a hole, it reminds us that lots of  people get themselves in a hole by  their own carelessness; then expect  some one else to get them out. Lawyers make their living by getting people  out of holes. A man never goes to a  lawyer to find out how to do right or  how to be honest, he goes to him in  trouble. He never goes to the doctor  to find out how to take care of his  health while he has it Come, let us  be reasonable; if we are honest, and on  the level, and get enough sleep: we  won't need those M.D.'s or L.L.D.'s  or D.D's help. God did not intend  us to be sick, sinful or "broke," if we  stick to the rules. If you plant weeds  you don't expect corn.
