Following Raise ,in Par Value  of Shares.  m  As noted in the Pioneer last week, a  meeting of tlie shareholders of the  Gratiby Consolidated Mining, Smelting &. Power Co." is called for next  Friday, December i, to raise the par  vwlue of shares from $10 to $100.  The reason for the change is that  brokers on the Boston stock exchange  charge $12.50 for buying or selling  100 shares of Granby, exactly the  same commission they get for buying  or selling 100 shares of railway stock  of $100 par value.  The'Boston News Bureau says:  "When the Granby company increases the par v.ilue of its shares from  $10 to $100 and reduces the number  of its issued shares,from 1,350,000 to  r35,000 shares, it will probably imme-  diatelystart dividends at the late of  $6 per share per annum.  "The company is now earning at  the rale of about $1 per share upon its  present 1,350,000 shares, or'$10 per  share upon its proposed new capital of  135.060 shares.  "On the present 111:11 ket value ofthe  shares, g}4, ihe new stock would  have a market value of 95, and Gian  by interests claim that the present  earnings of $10 per shaie justify lliis  price; that as a matter of fact when the  company is -able to operate its full battery of eight furnaces uninienuptedly,  it should be able to show earnings on  15 cent copper ol between $13 or $14  per share.  "The Granby company has this year  increased its mineral area in British  Columbia ovei 100 pei cent and has  started in to sj somatically open up its  new [iroperties, which show coppei  bearing rock from ihe grass toots, as  do most of the Boundary district copier properties.  "When its propei tieis are thoroughly  opened and the company's power facilities are increased to prevent any recurrence of the troubles incurred this  summer by reason of insufficient power  to operate its smelter full force, it is  not unlikely that the Granby company  will again materially increase its smelting capacity and the comuany will  have 15,000 shares of treasury stock  which it can dispose of for this purpose, probably at new pat value of  $100 per share. This, however, is  something for the tu'.ure."  Referring to die 'December :st meeting of the Granby lo change   ihe  par  value  ol" the shares, ihe Boston Com  inercial of last Saturday said :  "It is understood that all the largest  stockholders are in favor of this ex-  cli��nge,and it will undoubtedly be carried  through. The Granby is getting things  in shape to run all e:;Jit of its furnaces  continuously. It is doing this a part  ol the time no.v, and is smelting ap  proximately 2,500 ions of ore daily. It  is therefore turning out at ihe rate of  more than 20,003,000 pounds of copper annually, and must be earning,  with copper at i6>4 cents, at the rate  of $1,600,000 annually, or more than  $t per share on its outstanding stock.  "After ihe change in par value,  Granbv stock should sell above $100  per share, as dividends at the rate of  $4 to $6 per share annually will begin  in the near future. The Granby has a  very progressive and economical manage ment. It has added heavily to its  holdings of mineral lands, opened its  mines on a broad scale and doubled  the capacity of its smelter within a  short time and it is understood that  this policy will be continued. Readers  of these letters will recall that I have  persistently advised the purchase of  Granby stock since it sold around $3  per sjiare."  George C. Rose, the new owner of  the Kelowna Clarion, was in the city  Wednesday. Mr. Rose lias just given  up bis position as customs officer at  Cascade, where he has been located  for some seven years or more. His  successor is Angus Cameron, whose  face will hereaftu become familiar to  all who cross the boundary line at that  point.  PUTTING THEIR  .FEET IN IT  Ser-  Regarding New   Mail  vice to Phoenix.  ��� The postoffice department of Canada has at last listened to the petition  of the residents of P| hoenix, and is now  asking for tenders for the carrying of  mails from the G. N. station in Phoenix to Greenwood, and return. This  is not what the last petition from Phoenix asked for,,but of itself it does no  harm. What Phoenix residents wished for particularly' is the carrying of  Phoenix mail from American points  direct on the G. N. to this point, instead of being put off at Grand Forks,  as at present, whije the same train  bringing it from Spokane comes here  direct. \  In this connection, McIntyre & McDonald, at present contractors for  carrying the mails to and from the C.  P. R. stition in Phoenix, have been  notified this week by .Inspector Greenfield, at Vancouver, that their contract  will be terminated! in three months'  time. There is but one interpretation  to be placed on this,' and that is that  no mails will be brought here over the  C.P R., but that they will be thrown  off at Grand Forks and brought here  on the G. N. with American mail.  Whether the same' thing applies to  Greenwood, deponent sayeth not.  In other words, instead of receiving  Canadian mail at Ihe usual timej" it  will not arrive here till the G.N. train  arrives, two or three,hours later. And  if the C.P.R. changes time again next  spring, as is likely, all Canadian mail  for Phoenix and Greenwood will probably be held over'a day in Grand  Forks or elsewhere.  If ihe postal authorities think the  people of Phoenix will stand for'this,  they are much mistaken. We want  mail on both railways, just as Rossland, Nelson and Grand Forks have it,  and there is no reas<m why we should  not have it.  WILL BLOW IN  NEXT MONDAY  Smelter    of    the    Dominion  Copper Co., Ltd.  Making  Third in   Operation  in the Boundary.  Two  WAR IS OVER AT MIDWAY.  Railways    Awaiting   Decision   of   tbr  Courts.  There have been no new developments this week in the railway construction war. between the C.P.R. and  the V.,V. & E., or the Great Northern,  at Midway. Some time.last week the  former daid off the hundreds of men  who were getting from $3 to $5 per  day for holding ��� possession of block  No. 2,703, some five miles west of  Midway, as the C.P.R. now has an injunction, and . the Great Northern is  moving to expropriate the land needed.  It is said that there were some men  on the payroll of both companies at  the same time.  In the meantime, the Great Northern contractors are proceeding with  work at the tunnel in Meyers creek  canyon, but are put to considerable  inconvenience in not being able lo  dump their rock as before, as the material has to.be put where a place can  be found.  The C.P.R..has certainly been successful in delaying operations of the  Great Northern slightly, when it was  desired to make all possible progress  during the favorable weather. It is  also rumored that when the contract  is let for the Midway & Vernon, as  expected almost any time, the C.P.R.  is likely lo again be in the game of  blocking construction gangs.  \V. C. Thomas, smelter superintendent for the Dominion Copper Co.,  .Ltd., advises the Pioncor that the reduction works of the company will be  blown in next Monday or Tuesday.  Today was set for the start of operations at this smelter, but the delay in  the arrival of some castings put back  the opening date a few days.  At first but one of the two furnaces  will be blown in, the second to follow  ,in due course, when preparations at  the company's mines and reduction  works are finally completed. - The C.  P. R. agent has received orders to prepare next Monday to handle ten cars  of ore daily from the Brooklyn, Stem  winder and Rawhide mines in this  camp���about 300 tons each 24 hours  ���which is expected to be the average  output until the second furnace is  blown in. Eight hours will prevail, as  at the Granby smelter.  Manager Drummond has been  steadily getting the company's properties in shape to ship for several months,  steadily doing development to this end.  The force of men has been gradually  increased, and now that steady ore  shipping is about to be inaugurated,  the number of men employed is expected to be considerably augmented.  Already several hundred tons of ore  have been shipped.  The Boundary Falls smelter was  blown out May r7, 1905, by the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, which  was managed by H. T. Pemberton,  that company having subsequently  been absorbed by the Dominion Copper Co. The previous owners had  treated ore as follows :  Boundary Mining Notes  '903   1904 .'.......'.  1005 (to May 1 7  j !:���.'.'���  Tons   152,570  .....   30,930      71.433  Total    254,933  Boundary  Side  Lights  Annual Hospitil Dance.

The ladies promise all who attend good music, a fine lunch, excellent fruit punch and a royal good time.

Midway is to have a second drug  store in a week or two.  There was skating in and around  Grand Forks this week.  Engineer Hastie, ofthe Great Northern staff, was in camp this week.  The Greenwood skating rink -has  been leased by Capt. Swayn'e for the  winter.  Midway has been added to the  Southern British Columbia theatrical  circuit.  The Grand Forks aldermen and  mayor all voted themselves salaries  this week, amounting to about $1,700  for the current year.  C. Scott Galloway, of Greenwood,  has sold the Victoria hotel on Copper  street in that city, to J. N. Bishop, of  Calgary, the purchase price being in  the neighborhood of $5,000.  E. W. Thompson, one of the best  known newspaper men of Canada, was  in the district last week, in the interest  of the Boston Transcript and a syndicate of prominent newspapers.  From now on Eholt will feel the  effects of the increased ore traffic, due  to the starting up of the Boundary  Falls smelter of the Dominion Copper  Co., as the railway men nearly all reside in Eholt.  One of the Grand Forks hotels, the  Union, was put out of business last  week by Mayor Ham mar, the proprietors having failed to take out a permit, as the other saloon keepers did.  It was conducted by Bell & Kopec.  On or about December 15th the  statutory semi-annual meeting of the  Boundary Creek license commissioners  will be held. Applications for renewals  or new licenses are expected to be  filed with the chief license inspector  previous to the meeting.  H. H. Spinks was badly injured at  the Granby smelter last week Friday.  He was tending the smalt ore crusher,  when a bar of iron became lodged  therein. In attempting to get it out,  the bar was hurled with great force  against the side of Mr. Spinks' head,  crushing the cheek bone. He was  taken to the hospital and did not recover consciousness till Monday, but  is now improving somewhat.  After some repairs, the full battery  of eight furnaces is once more in blast  at the Granby smelter.  It is expected that work will be  prosecuted on the Rathmullen group  most of the winter, in Summit camp.  The last car of Skylark ore yielded  $125 per ton, with about $12 of this  in gold values, the balance being  silver.  Neil Morrison and a crew of men  have got work under way at the Sunset  in Deadwood camp, for the Dominion  Copper Co.  Drifting on the 500 foot level of the  Providence mine is now in progress,  and excellent ore is being taken out of  the mine daily.,  Fred Hesselwood and Robert Hal-  crow have completed their sinking contract on the Helen, it being now 210  feet deep. The mine is improving  steadily with development.  The eight hour shifts were put into  effect at the Granby smelter last Monday, in accordance with the arrangement recently arrived at between Supt.  Hodges aud the employees.  E. H. Thruston, of the Carmi mine,  on the West Fork, is reported as stat  ing that he has just made arrangements  for adding five stamps to his mill,  making it a ten stamp mill.  Mike Callahan and Dan Bresnahan  finished their sinking contract on the  Preston last week, making the shatt  107 feet deep, and finding better ore  in the botton than ever. This week  they are expecting to start on another  contract.  At the annual meeting of the Mc-  Kinley Mines, Ltd., just held, the foi  lowing officers for the ensuing year  were elected : President, B. Lequime;  directors, C. R. Hamilton and A. B.  McKenzie, of Rossland, W. H. Warrington and D. Whiteside, of Grand  Forks. M. O'Brien, of New York,  has been appointed general manager of  the company.  Peter Costello, W Spokane, has  taken a bond on the Black Diamond  and Standard claims on the" West Fork  of Kettle river, for $27,000," payable in  one and two years. Work to the  amount of $300 per month is to be  done each month till the final payment  is made. The owners are P. J. Kennedy, G. O. Guise and Jos. A. Devlin,  the claims being located near the Rambler on Wallace mountain.  DECISIONS  REVERSED  In Litigation Over the  Rich  Providence   Mine.  Full Court Is Against Chicago  Men.  Information was received in the  Boundary this week that the two more  or less famous Providence mine suits,  appealed from the decision of the  county court, held at Nelson last summer, had been reversed by the full  court sitting at Vancouver. The cases  were entitled Rudolph vs.. Macy and  Madden vs. Dimond, and grew out of  a struggle for control ofthe Providence  mine by Chicago shareholders on the  one side and Boundary and Spokane  shareholders on the other.  At the Nelson sitting in August  there were five cases, all of which were  decided against the local shareholders.  Two of the five were appealed, as  stated, and the Nelson decision was-  reversed. This settles the cases, unless they should be appealed to Ottawa. An important feature ofthe result  is that the losers of the appeals must  pay costs, said to be something like  $5,000, in this long fought legal battle.  The mine has been steadily operated during the litigation, and is said to  be a bigger and better proposition than  ever, with greater ore reserves, and  more and better ore.  CURLERS ELECT  NEW OFFICERS  Tea Inches of Snow.  Saturday afternoon and Sunday snow  fell sterdily here, after having four or  five weeks of almost ideal fall weather.  While the valleys of Kettle river and  Boundary creek had fogs and mist  most of the time for the last month,  this altitude, nearly 5,000 feet, has  been like Indian summer. The snow  this time fell to a depth of ten inches  or thereabouts, and will undoubtedly  stay this time for the winter, being of  great assistance to those who are employed in the timber of the Boundary,  r-nd making excellent sleighing here.  So far the Great Northern and C.P.R.  have not experienced any trouble in  keeping the heavy ore trains in opera-  lion, as usual. Should an unusually  deep fall of snow occur, the traffic  managers of both railways will doubtless be prepared to cope with it.  Proposals to  Increase Size of  Rink.  Wednesday evening a reorganization  meeting of the Phoenix Curling Club  was held in the city hall,' the attendance being large and enthusiastic-  The following were chosen as officers  for the ensuing winter season : President, George L. McNicol; vice-president, C. E. Reeves; secretary-treasurer,  A. B. Hood; executive committee,  George E. Dey, A. Strachan and John  A. Morrin.  Committees were also appointed to  investigate the feasibility of lengthening the rink and making another sheet  of ice, and to secure new members for  the organization, which has been so  popular here in past years. The suggestion of the Rossland club that the  Phoenix club adopt twelve foot rings  was favorably acted on. As in the  past; the club will probably send rinks  to attend the annual bonspeil of the  Kootenay Curling Association.  An adjourned meeting of the club is  called for next Monday ac the city hall,  to consider enlarging the rink.  Latest Price. In Metals.

' >  v ^.Last Saturday's Vancouver Province  had a whole page devoted to the Great,  Northern-CP.R. construction war at  Midway, with several large alleged  illusfrationt���we say alleged advisedly,  as they were fearfully and wonderfully  printed. If the,little war was half as  bad as the illustrations, it must have  been a terrific affair, indeed.  Russia continues to be deluged * in  blood to such an extent that the recent  disastrous war. with Japan is nothing in  comparison. All over the empire the  people are rising, and the entiie coun-l  try is in revolt. The end no man,cap  accurately foretell, but it seems as  though there would be a general overturning of the present powers that be.  A New aid Unique Newspaper.  The Vancouver World says :  Impelled by a"desire for the idea of  journalistic independence and fairnes-,  ,a number of local men have banded to  publish a weekly newspaper to present  both sides of public questions.     The  paper, which will be launched with the  New Xear, whl be appropriately named  the "Two Voices" and its leaders will  be written by two'men, one a  Liberal  and   the  other  a  Conservative, each  giving  his "own   party   view,   though  neither will be absolutely  hidebound.  An' effort   will   be made to avoid the  expression of extreme patty views, and  tb fuither delineate both' points of yiew  the best editorials appearing during the  week  in   the  papers supporting both  patties  will   be  reproduced,  with the  best speeches from both sides  of  the  house  when the legislature is sitting.  No advertisements will be solicited and  it is a fundamental principle that it is  to be free to criticise everybody, even  tljpse contributing to its support.  I Railway'wiseacres are now asserting  that James J. Hill and.his friends have  practically obtained control of the  Canadian Pacific, and proceed to,give  their reasons. We have not heard  from the other side definitely yet, and  until we do such reports will be token  cum grano salis. Mr. Hill is a remarkable railway man, but does he propose  to control all the railways in the west ?

'   "'  "We have referred to the general  efficiency ofthe staff .11 I!ritUh Columbia, but it is only fair in this connection to make special reference to the  debt the company owes to the administrative abilities and technical skill  which the general supeiintended, A.  B. W. Hodges, has displayed in the  discharge of his duties. As we mentioned in a previous isstif, the use of  the automatic chargers in the smelter,  a labor-saving device of great ingenuity  invented by Mr. Hodges, represents n  saving of many thousands of dollars a  year, and this is but one instance of  many of his very considerable capacity  and devotion to the interests he serve.  " The output of ihe mines during the  period reviewed has   been   miiniained  at practically the same level as in 1904-  but the amount of rnpp��r,   silver   and  gold   recovered   appears   to ��� be   less.  This, however, does not imply that the  values in the ore have decreased,   but  is  explained   on   the ground that ,no  foreign   matte    was    treated   at   the  smelter.    It \*, in fact,  interesting   to  note that at the average price at which  copper was marketed this year, namely,  14 36 cents,  realized on a recovery of  2.41 per cent. Cu, a return of $6.05 in  this metal was realized alone.    Meanwhile  the  company has materially increased its holdings by the purchase of  several valuable adjoining properties in  Phoenix camp, and has a cash surplus  in hand of $1,554,875 27.

N. Railway tompaoy.  In the Oriental Limited, the new  service inaugurated by the Great North  em railway company, on its main line  between St. Paul and Seattle this week.  a new standard has been fixed for luxurious accommodation for pussengers.  The whole equ'pment of the sleeping  and parlor cars is greatly improved in  every respect. They are richly and  beautifully furnished and every possible convenience for travellers has  been attended to. Each train has a  library f >r the use of passengers, con  taming all the standard works in the  English language, as well as the latest  works of fict.on, and all the best maga  zines, academic and popular.  But the i h-ef feature of the Oiiental  Limited is undoubtedly the obseiva-  tion car seivice. The open cais formerly in vogue on the line, and sliil  used on other transcontinental lines,  entailed a great discomfort to passengers from the cindeisand giit fiom the  locomotive, and the dust of the road.  The new observation cars will be enclosed with plate glass, combining im>  munity fiom dust, wind and cold with  an uninterrupted view of the natural  beautjes of trje ,coqntry traversed.  Truth needs no tinsel.  Weakness cannot-wait.  Friends never come in flocks.  Love is the great human loadstone.  Labor is the noblest of all prayers.  ,    Every sin would like  to  syndicate  itself.  The  world   needs   kindness   more  than creeds.  All saints  are homemade but none  are self made.  When religion is only a  thing it   is  jworse than nothing.  Enough is as good as a feast; more  .leads but to famine.  Even a child knows  the  difference  ,between piety and padding.  No man can be an infidel who   has  ,some faith in human nature.  The day of rest is never the  better  ,for making it a day of rust.  Look to your works and your wings  twill take care of themselves.  It is for him to forgive the man who  has wronged the other fellow.  The "cloth" is an effective insulator  between men and the ministry.  Too many hope to bull their own religious stock by bearing that of others.  The top notch of sentiment is gained  more  e.isily   than   the   lowetf step ol  service.  Many times do we get the names of  our  troubles and our treasuies trans-1  j posed. .  And Boundary Mining Journal  Is published in the heart of the greatest and most productive gold-copper camp in theJDominion  of Cairada.  In five years more than 2,500,000 tons of ore have: been mined and  smelted here, with a valuation of over $r2,500,000. And the industry is  only in its infancy.  The greatest mines of the Boundary are at ��� Phoenix���not one or five  miles distant, but iu front of, behind aud beneath the''Pioneer office. Consequently, from our-vantage point we believe tlie Pioneer can give you the  best, latest and most reliable news ofthe mines and smelters of the Boundary.

Addition  Q&&G  Il has mort; ihun once been pointed  out that the tine ciiieiinn of success  in Ihe ir,vestment woild is the quality  of "stick lo-il-ivencss"; in oilier words,'  that in nine cases out of Un it is the  man wiili courage and perseverence  who wins, ami the "q'uitiei" who loses.  A majority of failines in business invest men is may he traced to the fact  that loo many men expect too much  for ton little. They make an investment, and if it does not begin to pay  large dividends within a few weeks or  months, they' throw up the sponge and  denounce the enteiprise and everybody MMinected with it in unmeasured  terms.  It is because of these "squealers"  that the impiession lias obtained that  a niiij'iriiy of hiisincs and mining ventures are faiiihes and that the losses  arc meater than the piofits in such  piopiy.itions, taking ihem as a whole.  Nothing could bo further from the  tiuth. Take mining as an example :  One is .-n accusioined to hear complaints fiom those who have been unsuccessful in theii mining ventures  that it was long ago deemed unneces.  saiy lo refute the cliaige that mining  was a gamble. As a matter of fact we  hear more about the losses than we do  ihe profits.  The investor who lakes down profits  in Irs mining 'ventures is ��� the most  s.ili'.fiel pet si .ii in the ivoiid, for the  reason that ihe dividend payments are  inn lly laige in compniNon with the  .'iinoum investei'. These successful  iiiveslms do not, however, go about  at'veilising their good lurk with the  aid of a brass band. Il they made the  welkin ring wi'h their lejoicings at a  ratio equal lo those who have met  with f.iliue, the murium ings, the  "knockings" of the latter would be but  a feeble ecno in comparison. The fact  remains that tlie picfits in mining and  in most business ventures are so much  greater ihan ihe lossus.that it sounds  childish to hear people make the con  tention that more money is lost than  is made in speculative ventures.  The country is full of evidences of  successful speculations in mining and  oilier legitimate ventures. Throughout the west there are scores of men  who have made their millions in mining operations; who have made '.beii  iniliio'is where thousands only have  >eeii invested and expended. 11 may  he s.iid without f-.ir of successful contradiction that the foi tunes distributed  to lominate and successful investors  exceed, ten lo one, ihe losses that have  been sustained by tho^e, who through  lack of judgment, cxpeiience and sia-  niiiia, have been overtaken by failure.  The secret of all success lies in the  ability to understand that "all things  come to him who waits." Foi tune  can be wooed but not driven. The  man who cannot afford lo wait cannot  niToid to speuilate.���Chicago Mining  Wt.-ild.  The superstition is so stiong that in  none of the hotel-, in Spokane is then*  a mom nunbcied 13.

'  ���������  A Boston girl who has been tiying  to find out why automobilesso oiten  run into objects which the operator  tries to avoid, thinks she has got next.  She says : "It is hypnotic influence  of concentrated attention, rendering  the movement inco-ordinate, so that  the operator becomes the victim of  perverted reflexes, of purposeless effort  and the abject subject of an optical delusion."    Perhaps she is right.  Geologists who ought to know, claim  that North America will entei a glacial  epoch in 110,000 years from r>ow.  That's the way with- these pessimistic  scientists, tiying conjure up approaching disaster, says the Nelson Econo-  inosi.

Lapointe, Is now, arid  has been for several years past, a member of Montreal's City Council, also a  leading member of the Finance Do-  partment,besides being secretary of tho  licensed Vitnallors Association. He  writes as follows:  "I have pleasure in recommending  Peruna for severe colds, and as an excellent tonic generally. It Is a medicine  that should be in every household."  The similarity of climato between  Canada and the United States makes  them practically one from a climatic  standpoint.  The rigors of winter, - alternating  with the heat of summer, produces a  variation of temperature which makes  catarrh an everpresent affection.  This is why Peruna is so popular  throughout tho length and breadth of  Canada and the United States.  Peruna has become recognized as a  standard remedy for catarrh in Montreal and Quebec the same as ia New  York and San Francisco.

G MINING  The White Bear mine and mill, at  Rossland, are expected to be in full  opeiation soon.  Rossland's ore shipments last week  weie 5,480 tons, making 2^3,435 tons  for the calendar year to date.  The outlook this winter for the Ains-  worth mining division is much better  than it has been since ihe early days.'  Home and foreign, capital is'now be  ginning to be had for the development  of its mines.  Ore shipments from Silverton, on  Slocan lake, for the months of August,  September and October were 326 tons.  Of this 142 tons were dry and the balance silver-lead. Nearly the entire  amount was sent out by lessees.  The huge lend furnace now ordered  from and in process of manufacture by  the Kootenay Engineering Works, ai  Nelson, for the Trail smelter, is naif as  big again as the I truest now in opera-  don nt Trail. Il is 24 feet long a':d  5/4 feet wide and wi I have ilurty-  three wing openings. It is expected it  will lake beiwten il r.-e and fuu:  moi ths to complete.  A Toionto despatch says that the  diiectors of the War lCagle and Centre  Star mines have decided on amalgamation. They a^ree that it would permit ol a more profitable working ofthe  mines. They have decided to sell the  War Eagle stock to ihe Centre Star at  a ratio pf ten shares of Centre Star (or  fifteen of War F.agle. There was to  be a general meeting on November 23  to sanction the deal.  HOLIDAY  NUMBER  OF PIONEER  Will   be   Fully   Illustrated  From   Cover to  Cover*  In keeping with a custom inaugurated by the Pioneer three years ago, this  paper will issue-a Holiday Number  this year, and an endeavor will be  made to make this number better than  any that have qone before.y- Arrangements for the carrying out of this plan  are now nearly complete, and we have  every confidence that we shall be successful in publishing a number that  will be a distinct benefit to the Boun-  ber that every resident of this section  will be only too glad to send away to  capitalists looking for investment or to  friends already interested m this much  favored section. ���'������  The publication or such an'.issue  here is an undertaking of no small  magnitude, and aside from the actual  mechanical work, all .of which' will be  done in Phoenix, means a great amount  of work.

It is u common saying, that the  newspaper man will get his reward in  heaven. Well, perhaps, but the trouble  is that too many of them are not traveling that way. Still, the question of  reward does not bother them. Some  have been fortunate enough to get  their businesses ji.iid for, and perhaps  own a home. Some, in towns that  have developed rapidly into large  cities, have accumulated small fortunes,  lint there is not one in five hundred  who could get a note cashed at the  bank for $1,000 without good endorsers, and we don't know of one in  Uiitish Columbia.
