I  B. C. COPPEF  MEN STRIKE  Smelter   Employees   Demand  Increased  Wages.  Matter Referred to New York  Officials.  Boundary Mining Notes  For some days prior   to  last  Saturday   there   had   been   rumors around  Greenwood that the men employed at  the   B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter   wore  not   satisfied   with the wage, and that,  the company was not living up to the  ['agreement  made   with   the   men   last  I May.    Saturday  the company caused,  a signed statement to be printed in the the summer and  Boundary  Creek  Times, to (he  effect  that it had lived up to its  agreement,  but.that if any dissatisfaction- existed,  the company would be   glad   to   meet  its employees at any   itne  to   discuss  matters   in   dispute.    This   statement  was issued following a demand   made  upon   the  copper   company a   day or  two   previously,   with   a   wage   scale  which the company says increases the  wages to the smelter employees in   15  out   of   25  different   classes   of   employees over that agreed to verbally in  May last, which agreement was to last  for three years.  . This week, Wednesday at noon, the  men stopped work at the smelter, and  the furnaces were banked, nothing  being done there since.    On Thursday  The B. C. Copper Co. will explore  the Emma claim still further with diamond drills.  Boyles Bros, will, in a few days,  have completed their 500-foot contract  for diamond drilling on the Skylark.  This is understood to be the first high-  grade Boundary claim on which the  diamond drill has been used.  The return of the striking coal miners to work at Fernie is expected to  result in the resumption of operations  at the Snowshoe mine soon, ?s the  Trail smelter, to which the property  ships its ore, will be ablft to operate  once more. ',  DR. C. J. FAGAN  GAVE LECTURE  To Promote Anti-Tubercolosis  Cause.  Arranging For   a   Local Organization.  M  M  eh  <A  the Mother Lode and smelter ore bins  being full, the men at the mines were  laid off, as well as those at the Oro  Denoro. The Emma will probably be  kept working, as ore from that mine is  going to other smelters.  Manager   McAllister,   of the B. C.  Copper  Co., has been very ill in   bed  for two  weeks or more, and  Frederic  Keffer, the consulting engineer and in  charge of all the mining operations of  the company, has represented the company in the matter.    Acting on intruc-  tions from the New York office of the  company, the following letter was sent  to the union on Thursday :  Robert Matheson, Financial secretary,.  Greenwood Miners' Union, Greenwood, B. C:���  Dear  Sir,���Referring   to your communication of the  20th  inst., with enclosures, we would say that we are always ready to meet   our employees, or  their representatives, who are likewise  our   employees,  to   discuss   their requests, and we will give such   requests  careful consideration, and redress any  grievances.      We have an   agreement  with our employees   for   a   period   of  three years, which has still   more than  two years to  run, covering   their rates  of pay and conditions of service.    We  recognize, however, the   piesent   business conditions, and   we are willing to  deal liberally with  our employees and  will pay as high wages as  any paid for  similar services  in this province.    On  this  account we   feel,    in  justice   to  ibis company,   that during any discussion of rates   and conditions, the employees should  return   to   their   posts  until the outcome  of such   discussion  is known.    In view   of  the   foregoing  conditions,we are unable to deal   with  your   organization   as    such.  Yours very truly,  The B. C. Copper Co. Lin.  J. E. McAllister, Manager.  Novembr2i, 1996.  Thus far, up to yesterday noon,  there were no further developments in  the situation. Ernest Mills, organizer  for the Western Federation of Miners,  who had been absent, returned Thursday and there is a general impression  that the men and the company  will get together and make a new  agreement, the strike being thus shortlived. The company is willing, according to the letter above, to pay wages  as high as are paid in any smelter in  British Columbia for the same classes  of work, and claims that it has done so,  as per agreement; but. if through any  misunderstanding or error, matters are  not satisfactory, the company is willing  to take the matter up and endeavor to  reach an agreement satisfactory to both  sides.  A Greenwood syndicate is reported  to have secured a bond on the Caber-  fae and Canada claims, adjoining the  No. 7 in Central camp. Considerable  work was done on the Canada during  a good body of ore  opened up. The'syndicate is now  prospecting the Caberfae.  Coke is being received more freely  at the Granby smelter, and by Monday Manager Hodges expects to blow  in another furnace, making five in  blast, with another later in the week.  All this week four furnaces have been  in operation, but the output will gradually increase from this forward, the  coal strike at Fernie having been definitely settled by President Mitchell, of  the U. M. W. of A. endorsing the  action of National Board Member  James Burke, in ordering the men all  back to work. As the new ovens at  Coleman are now being gradually  heated up, some coke will likely be  obtained from that source also in the  near future".  Last Monday the British Columbia  Copper Co. made the final payment  on the option and bond taken last  summer on the B. C group of eleven  claims in Summit camp. Already  nearly 1,500 tons have been.shipped  from the B. C. since the bond was  taken, and the mine is proving to be  better than anticipated. The amount  of the purchase price is not made public, but it is known to be a reasonable  figure. The B. Cr mine was owned  by the B. C. Chartered Co., Ltd., consisting of , Montreal capitalists, and  shipped in the.earjy 'days of the Boundary about 100,000 tons of excellent  copper-gold ore. Its owners believed  that it was practically worked out and  and stopped work two or three years  ago.  Council   Heard    Dr.  Fagan.  Aldermen Marshall, Oxley, Kane  and McKenzie were present Wednesday at the meeting of the city council,  Mr. Marshall being appointed acting  mayor in the absence of G. W. Rum  berger. Bills from M. McIntyre for  $108.50; McRae Bros. & Smith, Ltd.,  $35; and Dr.-G. S. Gordon lor $25,  were ordered paid, and the council  listened to Dr. C. J. Fagan's address  on ttiliercolosis. Regarding the pro  posed'city sewage system, about which  the council has been trying to secure  data from the government for some  tinmths, the doctor assured the council  that he would assist in every possible  way. The city clerk was authorized  to send ihe $10 membership fee to the  Uniort of B. C. Municipalities, and  the city will co operate in attempting  to secure an act through the legislature to permit municipalities to tax  railways.  Glove Contest wag a Draw.  What was to have been on lrst  Monday night a 20 round glove contest between Barney Mullin and Jack  Reilly, was unfortunately spoiled in  the 9th round by one of those, accidents common enough in the"squared  circle." Dr. Boucher being called on  the stage, after a careful examination  of Jack Reilly, declined to allow the  men to proceed wi.h the contest The  referee J. Bunting, an old pupil of the  Bellsize Athletic Club of London,  England, was quite correct in announcing the contest to be a draw.  The contest was carried out under  Marquis of Queensberry rules, both  men to break clean in clinches. This  was the best bout ever put on in Phoenix for clever boxing, -both men being  repeatedly cheered for clever work in  both attack and defense, the smartness  of Reilly being especially noticeable  in dodging many of Mulliivs terrific attempts at uppercutting. The four round  preliminary was between J. Bunting  and H. Breen easily demonstrated  the former to have style.  Dr. C. M. Kingston, of Grand  Forks, and Dr. G.M.Foster, of Greenwood, were here Wednesday, attending  a meeting of the Boundary Medical  Association.  Last Wednesday Dr. C. J. Fagan,  of Victoria, provincial medical health  officer, was a visitor in Phoenix, he  being on a trip of inspection of the  government aided hospitals of the  province, and at ihe same time organ-  izating local societies for fighting tuber-  colosis. While in the Boundary the  doctor, who is thoroughly at home  with his subject, spoke to audiences at  Greenwood and Grand Forks, also.  At the Phoenix meeting at the city  hall, which was held on short notice,  the doctor reviewed as briefly as possible the ezisting conditions tegarding  health matters, and deplored the almost universal ignorance of health  regulations and sanitary conditions  generally, both in public and private.  He showed that, by this carelessness,  we are making possible the propaga-  lion of a terrible disease that is continually robbing us of those nearest  and dearest to us, and the matter must  he looked at in a more serious light.  It must be looked at squarely in the  face, and could be and must be stamped out. All over the province con-  serted steps were being taken to this  end, and he urgently asked the cooperation of his hearers in this work.  It is everybody's businesa and everyone must fight Shoulder to shoulder.  In every community organizations  must be formed, not only for the purpose of bettering sanitary conditions,  but for raising funds for the erection  and maintenance of an institution for  fighting and curing consumption.  Ladies were particularly urged to  lend their aid to the cause, owing to  the strong influence they wield in both  public and private life, which could be  turned to good -account in-this good  cause. He believed that the rising  generation had a right to learn regarding their physical well-being, which  would fit them for the struggles of life.  Especially did the doctor condemn the  practice of expectoration, which is  prohibited by provincial law, and  should be likewise prohibited by municipal by-laws. This habit alone is responsible for the taking off of a large  percentage through the germs thus  spread.  Rev. R. A. Heath, of the Church  of England, was chairman of the  meeting, and among others, a number  of ladies were present, the doctor always aiming to interest the fair sex in  this important subject.  He stated that he   is  cils throughout the province towards  the building and support of a tuber-  colosis sanitarium, whtch it is intended  to erect on Kamloops lake, in the dry  belt, about 25 miles from the city ot  Kamloops. Lieut.-Gov. Dunsmuir  has promised $10,000 towards the  $50,000 needed for the erection of the  building, and the city of Vancouver  has given $5,000. It is intended to  get city councils to donate $30 per afl-  num per 1,000 population for support  ofthe ins'itution. The local organizations formed are for the purpose of  aiding in the dissemination of information regarding the prevention of the  disease, and to raise funds for the support of the sanitarium.  A committee was appointed, consisting of Dr. Boucher and the pastors  of the Presbyterian, Methodist and  Anglican churches, together with one  representative ot each union in the  city, to be selected by the unions, and  the work of organizing is left with this  committee, which it is expected will  call a meeting for that purpose at an  early date.

Shea, one of the proprietors  o( the Bellevue hotel, believes in advertising���sometimes. At any rate,  the following notice appeared several  times in the Spokesman-Review this  week :  Wanted���To correspond with a fair  lady; age, about 30; object, matrimony.  Apply E. P."Shea, Phoenix, B. C.  While the Pioneer cannot speak in  the matter with authority, we understand that several replies have been received by Mr. Shea, and some came  from Phoenix. Evidently, there will  be work for the charivari party in the  not distant future.  Floe Ore  Body on Qreyhountf.  Recent development at the Greyhound mine, Deadwood camp, under  bond to the Rathmullen company, has  opened up a fine body of sulphide  copper ore. For the purpose of testing the surface cuts, which indicate an  unusually large ore deposit lying to the  west of the shaft, a cut was made from  the surface running due east into the  hill. This cut reached the copper  zone about the last of November, and  since that time the work has been all  in ore, the last assays giving good  values in gold and silver, and about  three per cent in copper. The ore  body shows a present width of over  40 feet, but it is expected that further  work will show the width to greatly exceed this. The ore is nearly self-fluxing, having a large proportion of lime  and iron, and should mix well with  the ore of other properties of the Rathmullen in Summit camp, where the  ore is more silicious.  R.H. Hewer, who is in charge of the  Greyhound development work, favors  strongly the work now being carried on  from the 200-foot level of the shaft, by  a drift to the east, which he claims will  open up a fine body of high grade ore.  L. H. Moffatt, director of the Rathmullen, paid   a few   days   visit to the  I Greyhound this week, and will take up  attempting to I the question of future   work   with   his  secure the co-operation   of city coun-  board on his return to Rossland.

The Canadian hotel was blown up with  dynamite and burned, a young girl of  18 years being literally blown to atoms,  and nine men seriously injured,  About 11 o'clock that night a messenger arrived in Grand Forks for  medical help, Drs. Dickson and Kingston responding psomptly. Provincial  Constable I. A. Dinsmore was also  quickly on the scene, and now has  three suspects in custody in Grand  Forks,  A man named King was the proprietor of the hotel, being assisted by  Mrs King and their daughter Louise.  The house was boarding a. number of  railway employees at the time, and it  is remarkable that no more than one  person was killed outright by the explosion. The bar was conducted by  James Blanchett, and was full of railway laborers when the explosion happened.  It appears that on Saturday the  powder magazine of P. W. Tierney &  Co., the railway contractors, was  moved away from close proximity to  the hotel that was demolished. However, the new magazine was broken  into, and railway men say that probably six or seven boxes were used fn  the fiendish deed. Mr. and Mrs.  King and daughter were on the second  floor of the two-story building when  the explosion occurred, which makes  the affair more mysterious, as the  crowd in the barroom below were  mostly injured in the face,- girrng the  idea that the dynamite was placed between the two floors.  The hotel demolished was of logs,  and the force ot the explosion���some  say there were two explosions���scattered the logs for hundreds of feet, the  debris remaining being burned with  the fire that followed. King was  thrown out of the window in his night  attire, and was more or less seriously  injured, while his wife escaped with  little injury. The daughter Louise  was blown to pieces, hardly enough of  the remains being gathered to hold a  coroner's inquest over. Four of the  men hurt were taken to the hospital,  one being in bad shape." The motive  for the dastardlycrime,which has caused  feeling to run high in Grand Forks, is  not exactly known.  Niagara, dunng the days of the construction of the C. P. R. into the  Boundary, in 1899-90, had a veritable  boom, being a construction town, pure  and simple, and dying when the railway was finished. It took on new life  last summer, however, when the Kettle  Valley construction was started up the  North North, the line running directly  through it.  Coroner's Inquest.  Dr. C. M. Kingston, the coroner,  empanelled the following jury on Wednesday to inquire into the cause leading up to the death of Louse King:  Neil McCallum, J. E. Stephens, E.  Spraggett, VV, H. Covert, J. Wilson  and E. M. George. Mrs. King testified among other things, that Frank  Painblanc was angry when he was told  he could not board there longer. He  is known by the railway contractors as  Agilio, and energetic efforts are being  made by the police to locate him.  Chief of ProvincialPoliceF.S.Hussey,  arrived in Grand Forks from Victoria  Wednesday, and was so impressed with  the terrible outrage that he wired the  government recommending that a reward of $1,000 be offered for the  capture and conviction of  thought to be the perpetrator,  the man has not been found.

A few days ago Supt. E. E. Gardan-  ier, of the Dominion Copper Co., set  a force of men at work at the Athelstan mine, Wellington camp, and it is  intended to give that mine of the company a thorough system of development. 'I he first thing undertaken  was the pumping ont of the old shaft,  which has not been unwatered for several years. The last thing done on  this property was in the surface workings, where some io,o��o tons of decomposed ore, running over $7 in  gold, were economically extracted and  shipped. As soon as the shaft is clear  of water, a force of miners will be set  to work. The Athelstan is the only  property now being operated in Wellington camp, which is about three  miles east of Phoenix, and it is regarded as one of the best mines in  that district.

In the  eighty-four   months that  this   weekly-  has seen .go. down the corridors of time  into history,<the Pioneer has seen the  town   stow   from a  straggling-mining  camp to a substantial little-city.

P., to the Simtlkameen and  Okanagan ridings, the Hedley Gazette  remarks:  '"'He  had captured   the   Penticton  socialistic   butterfly  and   left   bis hat  over   i?   to  keep  it   there   until   he  brought J. A. McDonald   there to see  it.    The leader came there recently to  trrspectj-bur no expert -testimony -has  jeflfeen given - out by-him as to the  value placed on it.    Mr.~ Ross; is particularly anxious to down Price Ellison  in  the  Okanagan  and   he   hopes the  socialistic   candidature  of  Logie.   of  Penticton,-wiil contribute to that end.  ���Not that he has any wish for.-Losses  success: but   because  he is a  recruit  from the ranks of toryism it will afford  pleasure to sacifice hlrn:   ' Mr. Ross' is  bragging as usual ��� about what is  to be  done, -with-all "the Conservative candidates, just as he was   over three years  ago when he  had  the Times   saying  that Price Ellison was 2 gone coon m  Okanagan,  and "W.

'Ihe provincial government has just  issued Bulletin No. 19 dealing with  agriculture in British Columbia. The  Bulletin contains a fund of information  of incalculable value for intending settlers and others given to this industry.  '1 here are many half-tone illustrations  scattered.throughout the publication,  and the whole production reflects the  greatest credit on both the compiler,  ;R. M. Palmer, and the printer.  There sc��iid be much eacocrage-  isca: for sach clubs as the 30,000  Cub of Grand Fdrks, and one of the  same name at Nelson, in the annual  report, recently issaed, of the Victoria  Tourist asscctatian, which is working  to a large extent along the same lines.  The report shows that in. the season  now closing no less than 30,000 visitors came to Victoria and enjoyed that  delightful spot. Tons of literature  were printed and distributed, and the  campaign of development was thus  made very effectual, and one that  brought many thousands of dollars to  the merchants and hotel men of Victoria. Such efforts, conducted along  right lines by the right peopie, acver-  dsing something worth while in the  righf way; cannot fail to do good and  bring in returns many fold over the  cost entailed.-   ,  Hindus are still coming to British  Columbia by the boatload, and the  problem, especially at- Vancouver, becomes more and more peplexing.

Now, as a matter of fact,  take this week, for instance, when it  was  snowing  hard' here, it was doing  the same in Grand Forks and Greenwood, although the snow was   heavier  here than in  lower- localities.    As to  coldness, it is well Snown by those who  know anything about it at all from exact metereological data,-that it is never  as  cold in Phoenix   as   in   the  other  places mentioned, and in-summer it is  never  as  warm - here - as ���'������ elsewhere.  White our winter.is long, it is  not  as  severe;    So conditions are pretty well  evened'up, taking it all around.

"Get an advance, skin the shoes, or lose money! *' This  was the slogan of the American shoe manufacturer at the  opening of the season.  Canadians who buy imported shoes pay one dollar duty.  a quarter of a dollar more in higher wages, or $1.25 in all for  their lack of perception. They fine themselves 331/$ per cent  and get shoes which the made-in-Canada shoe can defeat on  even terms in foreign markets.  Then the imported shoe may have been "skinned"  of value to partly meet that handicap of $1.25.  Follow the shoe market, and you will find that the  honest United States shoe mant Jacturer has either withdrawn  from the Canadian shoe market or raised his price too high.  Money cannot buy, nor can artisan devise a better shoe  than that upon which are stamp this "Seal of Certainty"���  The first steps have been taken in  construction of an iron foundry and  machine shop for the town, says the  Greenwood Times. The affair will be  a modest one at beginning, but so  planned that it can be readily added  to. Hurry up orders for castings and  machinery are now on hand and the  plant must be gotten into, shape for  the delivery of the same in the next  six weeks. The plat of land, too by  23 r feet, has been selected in Anaconda.  The site is an ideal one in itself and  is well situated for receipt and delivery  of supplies, being on the line of the  Canadian Pacific, from which a grade  spur can be run into the grounds.  The site will be bounded by two  streets, the railway and an alley.  Messrs. B. A. Isaacs and R. W.  Hinton of the Nelson Iron Woiks, are  promoters of the enterprise, and according to the Nelson papers purpose  to make the plant ultimately larger  than their Nelson works.  Mr. Hinton has recently been in  town and contracted with H. Bunting  for the first buildings. A substantial  building 48x48 feet with leanto 10x26,  on stone piers, will be begun so soon  as the heavy timbers arrive. This  building will furnish room for pattern  shop and moulding room in the main  part, and for coke and sand in the addition.  It is designed to extend the accommodations just as soon as the com ���  pany's present rush will permit A  movable crane for handling heavy material will be erected, and the plant so  far as its restricted size will permit,  made up to date. This enterprise,  which must eventually develop into  large proportions, comes at an oppor  tune moment, the demands for such  work by both local smelters  success from the beginning.  ^@  Whether your bread  is good or bad, the cost  of baking is the same.

Hourjhton   Mich.. U. S. A.  Silver to Slav Up.  George W. Roberts, director of the  United States mint, says, "Silver is  going to reach a price of 76 or better  within two years and it is going to hold  that price. I believe that hundreds of  silver mines throughout the west which  have been shut down for more than 10  years because of the fall in price will  be opening again within a year, simply  because the price of this metal makes  it worth while. And further, let me  state, this is no speculative or boom  market. The price of 71 cents today  will be better next month and it will  steadily and naturally advance a point  until a high mark, possibly 80c, will  be touched."  DrinK   Dry   Gin  and  P. Dawson's WnisKey  Greenwood Liquor Co.,Greenwood,nc  In Time of Peace.  In the first months of the Russia-  Japan war we had a striking example  of the necessity for preparation and  the early advantage of those who, so  to speak, "have shingled their roofs in  dry weather." The virtue of preparation has made history and given us our  greatest men. The individual as well  as the nation should be prepared-for  any emergency. Are you prepared to  successfully combat the first cold you  take ? A cold can be cured much  more quickly when treated as soon as  it has been contracted and before it  has become settled in the system.  Chamberlin's Cough Remedy is famous  for its cures of colds, and it should be  kept at hand ready for instant use.  For sale by all druggists.  \ J. V. O'Loughlin I  Halcyon Hot Springs s=,  SANITARIUM, Arrow Lake, B.C.  Just Declared   in London  foe  $ 100,000.*,  A cablegram was . received Sunday  in Rossland from London ..announcing  that the annual meeting of the Le Roi  Mining company had been held and  that a dividend of two shillings a share  had been declared.! The. report of  Managing Director A. J. MacMillan,  was read and the cable added that it  was very, favorable, particular.y as to  the good condition of the mine. As  there are 200,000 shares in the capital  stock of the Le Roi-company the total  dividend just paid would' be 400,000-  shillings, or nearly $100,000. This  added to the dividends formerly paid  of $1,377,000 would make a grand  total of about $1,477,000.  The condition of the mine, owing to  discoveries during the last year,is  such as to warrant the assumption.!hat  the Le Roi will be able from, now <jn  to pay regular dividends. The company has ample machinery for working  the mine to probably the 2500-foot  level. The discoveries made west of  the dike in territory which is practically virgin ground, gives assurauce of  a considerable profit for at least a decade to come from that portion of tlie  mine alone; the lowermost portions of  the mine in the old workings has more  ore "in sight" than for several years  past and gives promise of plenty of  profits for the Le Roi company in the  future. The Le Roi has already, produced something over $18,000,000;  judging from its present condition, it  is more than probable that it will produce twice that amount and do this  probably within Ihe next ten years.  The profits in the future should be  much larger than in the past because  the costs of mining and of smelting  have been largely reduced.  NASAL CATARRH  AFFECTS HEARING.

The London Daily Mail says it  learns that Admiralty is contemplating  the construction of battleships larger  and more powerful than the Dreadnought, and having guns that will  throw the latter's into the shade. It  is impossible to reply to the new German ships by putting more 12-inch  guns on a battleship. The conditions  necessitate a new type of monster gun.  It i.s believed that the pattern chosen  will be a gun of 13^-inch calibre,  roughly 50^ feet long, and weighing  from S5 to S6 tons.  Probably eight of these will be  mounted on each ship, so that all can  be fired in a broadside, and six ahead  or astern.'

Church Services Tomorrow  Of the 593 members of the House  of Lords only about fifty are Liberal in  their politics. Not more than half the  peers take their duties as legislators  seriously, and it is on rare occasions  that over 200 peers take part in a division, as they did the other day, when  the first amendment to the - Educational Bill was carried by an immense  majority.' Of the 593 persons who  have a right to sit in the Upper  House, 26 are Bishops, who sit by virtue of their position as representatives  ofthe immense landed estates ofthe  established church. 44 are representative���Irish 28 and Scottish 16,  peers elected by their fellows, four are  lords of appeal created for life, chiefly  for the purDose of enabling the House  to exercise its judicial functions as su  preme court of appeal,, and 519 are  peers in their own right. As might  be expected from its constitution, the  House of Lords is permanently Conservative'and by a majority which  makes any prospect of change perfectly hopeless. Every Liberal Government has this great handicap to  contend with in carryiug out its programme: and the more radical and  democratic its programme . the greater  is the resentment of the hereditary legislators.  The assent of both houses is necessary before any bill can be passed  into law. In legislation, excepting in  matters which relate to the taxation of  the people, the rights ofthe two houses  are the same. The Lords are certain  to have to deal in the ;future with much  legislation that will be highly objectionable to them; and they will have  either to assert their privileges and invite a conflict, which can have only  one end, though it may be delayed, or  to confess themselves impotent by  abandoning a power which they dare  not exert.
