L'u: lis has been an opponent ol the  Dunsmuir government, which tame  into power at \ ictona, as a result of  lhat election, and die has also become  an opponent of Joe Mai tin, in view  of the lact that the latter saw fit to  change and became moie or less  identified with the; Dunsmuii adminis-  tiation. Mr. Curjfs is thoioughly in  touch with the political situation at the  coast and worked baid for the defeat  of J. C. Bionn, thc government candidate, at the lecent election at New  Westminster.  "How long do you think the piesent  government will last?' said the  Pioneer man to Mi, Cuitis.  "Well," said he, ��'I look foi it lo  breakup almost any time. Mi. Duns  ���muir claim1* 22 voles, but he cannot  gel them. He cannot get even 20,  .mil lhat is not enough to cany on the  business ol the government.

Pi entice on  his way to the Qld Cou.ntry to try to  float sorne spit pf railway bonds, there  are only left,Attorney-General Kberts  and Mr. Durisniuir to attend to the  departmental business: and as Mr.  Dunsmuir does nothing -of this kind  himself, the whole work is in the  hands of Mr. Fberts. The portfolio  of minister of mines has been vacant  since Mr. McBride resigned, a couple  of months ago, and Mr. Duiisniuii* is  afraid to make another appointment.  Is it not scandalous that the most im  portant cabinet position should be left  vacant?  fflr, Bunsmtllr Resigned,  !'It jswellknownthat Premier Duns  niuii sent in liis.'-esignaiioh" just, previous to the receiit-'visit of: the; Duke  of York to the cpa:.t; hut was prevailed  upon by the lieuten.int-governor to  hold it over because of the visit of lhe  royal party. Since then the premier  has evidently determined- to hold on  as long.as he can, and he will undoubtedly postpone, the next session to  as Kite a'date as possible) if lhe government holds together lhat long���an  extremely doubtful contingency in  itself." .''"''/  "WiM the next election be on pr-rty  lines?" *Y(r. Curtis,.  '.'{i'is possible that, if Mr. Duns  TOuir.resigns, there may be a .coalition  government formed, hut. ii is altogether  probable that the next geneial appeal  to dispeople will be en party lines.  And I thinT* it will be a good thing  for the entiie province, We will then  kno.v who to hold responsible for poor  government, if we continue to have  such a thing. As it is now, no party  will'shoiilder the responsibility of the  shortcomings of the present apology  for a government in this province."  Red rtrlbutioD Ibe First Thin-;.  "How about redistribution?" Mr.  Cur'is.  "I'he very first thing to be done  when the government meets, no matter  who is in power, is redistribution. At  the last session, as the repqrts will  show, I fought for this continually,  and it coujd have beep, bad if lhe  government had been ill earnest aboiu  tha n-atter. Mr. Houston, of Nelson,  who is now writing in such good shape  for this reform, was one of th? members who voted against taking up the:  redistribution question at the last  session. But It is bound to come, and  at (ip distant date, as even the coast  i^eiflbers, who. haye always fought  ���^gajnst jt, see that it cannot be postponed much longer.

I'he record of ore  shipments from  the Boundaiy tor the month ol October shows that this section is keeping  up its aveiage shipments of over a  thousand tons per day. In lact, for  the last mouth, as the following table  will disclose, the aveiage has been  about 1,150 tons each day. As was  to be expected, the Gianb) mines in  this camp lead the list with a total of  ovei 20,000 tons���moie than all the  other mines in the Boundary country  combined. I'he Mother Lode comes  next with 8,238 tons, being 1,500  tons moie than the month pievious,  and tne B. C.minehas3,720,or 1,540  tons moie than in September.

A dispatch from Ottawa, slates  that this day is a statutory holiday and  will be generally observed. Owing to  the statute providing for the due ob  servanceof the birthday ofthe reigning  monarch, it is not probable that a proclamation will be issued. As, however,,  a large number of people may not be  aware of the provisions of the statute,  attention'is called to the fact. ;  The Nelsrn Miner of Thursday had  the following in this connection:  , In response to a telegram sent to  Victoria, inquiring whether Saturday,  November 9th, the anniversary of the  birth ofthe King, was to be declared  a public holiday, the following dispatch  was received:  Victoria, B.C., Nov: 6.���-Saturday,  9th November,  vvill be .proclaimed   a,  i-ublic     holiday.

Huuler-K'endrick Co. in  their  Pala-ial  New  Ouarlers,  This week (he Hunter-Kendrick Co.,  Ltd., hjive been busy moving to their  new stoiein the Bank block, that is  just being completed. Monday every  thing will be in 'first-class.shape.  ���;. The progress of this concern since  Chas. I). Hunter took charge, just a  vear-ago, has been most satisfactory.  In thai time the business of the concern lias doubled in volume, and it is  sale to say that today no business in  tlie Boundary country has a larger  turn oyer each month. As a matter  of fact this store is doing a greater  business than either of the firm's  branches at Grand Forks, or Greenwood. It is said lhat the ' October  business was the largest yet done by  lhe concern in Phoenix. Hereafter  all goods will be bought 111 straight  car lots, and the (Jreenwood branch  will be supplied, from here.  In the new- store*; theie are over  5,000 square feet of door s,*iace, the  main 100111 Lieing by 40x109 feet, the  back na,rt being used lor a tin-shop and  lor stoiage purposes, besides additional  storage capacity of 20x60 feet, not  counting the warehouse al the C.P.R.  depot. New fixtures and shelving  have been pi\t in, and in every possible way the new establishment has  been made convenient far customers  and the transaction of the business ol  the company.  WATER TEST WAS SATISFACTORY.  Streams Tarown Over the Highest Buildings  Last  Sunday.  Tests were made last Sunday aftei-  noon ot the new fire piotection system  ot wateiwoiks being installed in the  citv. Notice was given to the volunteer fue depaitinent to be on hand,  hut only a few of the 50 members  tuiiied out. However, the two hose  caits w'ere gotten out, and tests were  made 111 diffeient paits of the city that  were most satisfactory, not only to the  department but to the members of the  city council who weie present. Stieams  weie thrown ovei the highest buildings  on Dominion avenue, some of them  thiee stones 111 height, and it was  demonstrated that the pressuie lor the  [impose was all that was needed.  One ol the hose caits is located 111  the upper town, and the other in the  lowei town, and the city council will  at once provide proper housing for  both, as well as a tower for drying out  hose after being using.  Progress of Domestic Water System.  Great activity has prevailed this  week in the ditching for the balance  of the water pipes, and neaily 80 men  have been employed. The line on  Brooklyn avenue, nearly to Banner  street, has been opened, and the pipe  on Phoenix street has been laid. 'I'he  supplementary line to connect with  the Banner^spring has been opened  up, as well as the line to the pumping  station at Marshall lake. Another  week will probably see the ditch work  all done for the 'winter; -  Yesterday the work of' construction  on the second 100,000"gallon tank,  which is located * on the New York  claim, was started. This tank is to be  similar to that uuilt near the Old Ironsides mine, being 30 feet square and  16 feet in height. ; Work has also been  started on the pumping station at the  lake, which'is to be 30x40 feet in size.  In a comparitively short time the entire system will be complete and in  running order, both for domestic and  lire protection purposes.  HOCKEY ENTHUSIASTS ALIVE. "  Meeting Nexl.Tuesday to Arrange forSiasoni  Sporta.  The annual meeting of the Phoenix  Hockey Club will be held in Morrison-  Andeison Hall, next Tuesday evening  at 8 o'clock, mine timer At this meeting the question of amalgamating with  the Phoenix Athletic Association will  be taken up. It will be remembered  that the Athletic Association now has  football and laciosse teams, and it is  the desire to have al1 spoils under the  control of this organization.  The revival of the Southern British  Columbia Hockey league is talked of,  and Phoenix should have a team entered, as local players can put a strong  seam on the ice. Last season, although  il was the first, the team made excellent  lecord, and showed that it was in the  front lanks of hockey. The idea of  this league would be to organize it  somewhat on the lines of the Ontaiio  I lockey Association, and have the competing teams divided into groups, the  schedule of each group to be played  off by a certain time, and then the  winners of the several groupes to play  off foi the championship. For example, the Boundary group would be  composed 01 Giand Forks, Greenwood  aud Phoenix, each team to play home  and home games, majority of goals in  the matches to count Then the  winner ot this group to play the winner of a group composed, say of Nelson, Sandon and Rossland. In this  way a great saving could be effected in  travelling expenses. The management cordially invite all those interested in the sport to attend the meet,  ing, and let it be an enthusiastic one.  All the boys want is a little encourage  ment on the part of the citizens in gen-  eial, and they vvill put a team on the  ice capable of upholding the honor  ofthe town.  His First Visit to Phoenix.  Bishop Dart, of New Westminster,  made his first visit to Phoenix this  week, in connection with the work of  the Chinch of England here. The  bishop's diocese includes the whole of  British Columbia situated between the  49th and 54th parallels, a vast territory. For the piesent, while there is  a vacancy in the Angelican church at  Nelson, he is stopping there. While  the bishop has been in the. Boundary ���  before, he was never in its chief min-  town previously. He was shown  atound by the vicar, Rev. F. P. Flewelling, and was much pleased with the  evidences of giowth and prosperity  which he" noted on every hand.  Bishop Dart arrived on Wednesday's  tram, and depai ted the next day, having gained a most favorable impies-  sionofthe city and the gieat mines  by which it is surrounded.  , 'I'he Granby smelter treated 20,347  tons of ore during the month of October,  W. S Ross returned late last week  from a trip to the south half of the  Colville reservation, where ho has  mining interests in Congress camp, to  say nothing of an embryonic townsite  or two,  Shakespeare's Macbeth.  Instead of the regular meeting of  the Y. P. S. C. E. at the Presbyterian  church Wednesday evening, the society  had a musical and literary program  followed by"a social. Geo. D. Turner  rendered a solo in his excellent style,  and Messrs. Geo. Evving and A. P.  McKenzie sang a duet which was  highly appreciated. Miss Newlin  favored the audience" with a pleasing  recitation. The event of the evening,  however, was a lecture by the pastor  on Shakespeare's "Macbeth," and :was  entertaining as well as profitable. We  trust that another evening may be-  similarly spent ere long, when the  Rev. Mr. Millar will talk on another  of Shakespeare's plays.  BRIEF  BUT  IMPORTANT.  Li Hung Chang, the Chinese statesman, is dead.  Tammany Hall was effectively turned  down in Tuesday's election in New-  York City, where tnere are about 650,-  000 voters.  The C. P. R. land department reports sales of over-half a millon acres  so far this year, being four, times as  much as the previous year. ���<  J. M.

Uecause the   city   of  Phoenix   is  located a little short of 5,000 ft- above  cthe sea level, some people think  that  the winters  in this camp are more  severe than in other places hereabouts.  Such,   however is not the case,  as  weather, bureau statistics, if available,  ,' would   prove.     It is true lhat the  winters last longer in this place than  in some others, but we do not get the  ,    extremes of temperature enjoyed by  cities located lower, either* with  heat  -   or cold.    For instance,   it has been  ��� noted,' year after year,  by old  timers  that   when    zero    weather    reaches.  f Phoenix, the mercury goes from  five  to ten decrees' lower in Grand  Forks,  Greenwood and Midway;' the.4, latter  being the cojdest.   Two' years ago Jiut  little snow fell here till about Christmas  time,, and  last. year it was somewhat  earlier.   This year winter is beginning  ��� in earnest at about the average'1 time,  the fore part of November, but weatjiei*  , prophets perdict it will not be severe.  ,   While the snow'season is i pretty  long  here, we-h'aye a compensation 'in   the  knowledge tbat, taking it all around,  the^climate is more equable than J11  any othei*, place, jn the Boundary.    -'  This province is entitled to repie-  sentation in the Dominion cabinet,  and it is to be hoped that the present  talk along these lines will beai practical results. The choice is said to lie  between Ralph Smith, thc laboi leader,  and Senator Templeman. - j  Scarcely an issue of the inteiioi exchanges reaches the desk of the  Pioneer that does not have at least  one advertisement of a delinquent co-  owner in it. The Pioneer has nc-vei  yet bad such an advertisement in its  columns. Evidently, claims in this  camp are held 111 high esteem by their  owners.  Chas. \V. McCrossan has written  an open letter to Lardeau mine owners  stating the machinery for the proposed  Trout Lake smelter will be shipped  from the makeis on the 20th of  November. It really begins to look  as if both East Kootenay and the  Lardeau will have local smelters in  the near future.  If an   eminent  authority is  to  be  credited, there is  moie  trouble o\er  mining claims in the Klondike on  account  of   litigation   than  in   British  Columbia.     Sir Thomas Tancied, a  British engineer and icpresentatjvc  of  capitalists  in  the  United   Kingdom,]  lately said theie that the undue preva I  licnceol   litigation  concerning iiiiniiii'l  and property lights  in   the   Klondike!  is seriously piejudicing British capitalists against luither investments there.  Theie   were     no    insuimouiitable  engineering obstacles.       "Hut,"     he  added, "capital   will not  come  heie,  rich as the country is, when conditions  are not settled.

PHOENIX, B. C.  '   * REDISTRIBUTION IS COMING.  ���Now that 'the results of the census  are being made known, the old ques;  tion of redistribution is rapidly coming  to   the .front   once 'more. ���This is  certainly as it should be, for it is only  too well known how the interior ofif-he  . provincchas been misrepresented for  1 the last fewyears' The coast politicians  ��� had-several pocket boroughs, arid they  held to them , as tenaciously as, they  could���and quite successfully up to the  present. - But the time has come, for a  "change, and'it cannot'much'longer ibe  postponed in the.faceof the late census  -.returns. ���  ,Foiv instance, among the many glaring inequalities, is the.fact that .Yale  with a population of nearly 20,000 has  three members, while'Esquimau, Victoria district and ,the two 'Lillooets,  with a population of only 5,000, have  si\ members. The Kootenays, with  .31,000 people, have six members.  Instances like this might be cited till  ���the reader was tired.   ���  John Houston, M. L. A.,1 editor of  the Nelson Tribune, puts it in a nutshell when he says:  "All three of the Vancouver dailies  are silent on the subject, the Victoria  dailies dare not discuss the qqestion,  and the New Westminister Columbian  does not know -where it is at since  'Brown and "the Bridge' went dowii to  defeat. The Coast knows that with a  fair measure of redistribution, based  on a membeiship the same as at  present, that is-thirty eight, that the  Kootenays, Vale, the two Lillooets and  Cariboo will have at least fifteen members out ol" the" thirty "eight. This is  where the shoe pinches.'*   '-   -l *  One writer on the Yukon says tlie  camp is practically played out, and  another, of equal prominence, asserts  that this is far from being the case.  The output of gold this year has been  very nearly $22,ooo,oooTwliicli would  tend to give the impression that there  are a few chunks of the precious metal  left,in the*. Klondike yet.  *      EJMTORIAL COMMENTS.  Grand  Forks ** has  been hit by a  moral wave, and the end is not yet.  '  *    The Great Pan at Buffalo is closed  with'aloss of^some $3,000,000.    It  r,.is>the town of St. Louis next.  It ia said that several dark hoises  are grooming for the fray in the municipal election, now only a couple o(  months away.  BelaKadish, manager of the North-  port smelter, where a strike has been  011 for some months, has resigned, and  rumor says that Bernard McDonald,  manager of the Le Roi mines, has  done likewise. It is earnestly to be  hoped that these statements ,are the  precursors to the settlement of the  labor, troubles in Rossland camp on  an   equitable   basis.  Boundary smelters have a weakness  for breaking records. Recently the  Greenwood smelter made the phe-  nominal run of 430 tons of ore in 24  hours in ��ne furnace. Last week  Thursday the,No. i, furnace at the  Granby smelter treated 475 tons of  ore inthe same time, which-latter it is  claimed establishes a world's record  for a 24 hours' run. Evidently,  Boundary smelter managers are not  at all slow. -  '��"*'  There could be no belter advertise-  wient for British Columbia than a  regular and authentic complication  and publication each month of the ore  tonnage. This is certainly a move iri  ihe rijrtit direction by the'mine owners,  '��� WHAT THE   EDITORS SAY.  ,1 According to the "present system,  one man in Lillooet is worth ten in the  Boipidary.���Greenwood Times.

Present ads bring future trade.  ,'l'he only thing  for an  advertising  affair gone wrong is to try it over again  along other lines.  Once there was a merchant who got  along without advertising, but that  once was a long time ago.  Advertising is the connecting link  between the one who has goods to sell  and the one who has need of the goods.  If the advei Using is good, it makes a  strong link.  The man who is wise in his day and  generation regards his advertising 'a-j-  propriatcon as he would sown seed.  The moie attention he gives 'it, ithe  better the harvest. And in neither  case do results come immediately.  Every day adds to the value of newspaper advertising because every day  shows more and more plainly the  desire of newspaper publishers that  advertisers shall have the best service  in their power, and because the  merchant more and more feels the  necessity of getting out of the space  used full value for what he paid for it.  About the middle of August last the  Vernon&Nelson Telephone Co. leased  its rival in this section, the Columbia  Co, and it was given out that the two  lines would be continued sepaiately.  And so they were foi a time. Iu a  week or two, however, the Columbia  exchange in Phoenix was done away  with, to bofollowed in a few weeks by  closing".'the -Columbia exchange in  Rossland. Last week Tuesday the  Columbia exchange in Grand Forks  was closed, and the only or.e left now  is thai in Greenwood, which it is said  will not be kept open much after the  new year. And thus ends the career  of the Columbia Telephone Co.  m  At one time there were three separate telephone systems in the Boundaiy  ���the Vernon & Nelson, the Boundary  Creek ;(or Sjierry Iine;,<> and. the Co  lumbia.    A^year or two ago the Co  lumbia people bought out the  Spei.i)  line for some $5,000, giving lien notes  therefor, payable at the rate of about  $175 per month.    Now that  the Co  'umbia has been leased to the V. & N  Co., ai)d is virtually out of existence,  some of the'shareholders of the  olo  Boundary Creek line are   wondering  when they will get even.  m  Here is the way a writer in the  Victoria Colonist looks at the situation  in Rossland and it is worthy of perusal:  The resignation of Mr. Kadish,  superintendent of the North port smelter, lollowed by that of Mr. Bernard  MacDonald general manager of thel.e  Roi Company, is a significant circuni-  stai.ee. It means that, in spite of statements to the-'contrary, the directois  who have by-this time received-Mr.  Fiecheville's report, have refused to  -ndored Mr.-MacDonald's policy, and  probably the appointment; of a new  manager will-also result in a gradual  settlement of the labor troubles 111 the  Rossland district; That this method  of overcoming the difficulties of the  situation was decidedjupon some time  ago, might have been guessed at by  Mr. Bratnober's statement to the press',  but the complete resumption of o|>-  erations at "the big. Rossland mines  would be too satisfactory a consummation to inake*'it worth while to criticise  the somewhat roundabout manner by  which it were brought about. While  the removal.of the Whittaker-Wright  influence may for a time place a limitation on speculation in Le Roi shares  on the London market, the operation  of the mines on ligitimateand business  like lines must eventually be attended  with results which will do much to restore that confidence in the intrinsic  merit of tlie properties which stock  manipulation and jobbery in the past  has impaired.  There are many more or less  effective methods cf collecting the  Provincial-Poll Tax. Perhaps the  most oiigittafyet discoveted, was  practiced by Provincial Agent Mc-  Mynn at Greenwood,, the other dav,  when he deducted from the jurymen's  lees at the Assizes there held, the  amount of their poll taxes. The men  of the jury box, it is repoited, were in  general more surprised than pleased.  ��n��aBe Wilh Joy,  Mr. Ormsby, of Chicago, is missing.  In 1896 his wife presented him wit.*,  twins, repreating in 189;. In 1898  the Ormsby houuebold was enriched  with triplets, and again in 1899. 0"  Monday last there was a further addition to the Ormsby clan, this time  quadruplets making ^their appearance.  It is feared from his absence that the  happy father has become temporarily  insane with joy.  Those desiring help npplv to secretary 'Phone 30  I. 0. 0. F.   Snow  Shoe Lodge, No. 46.

The statemeiii  shows lhat the company is in a healthy  condition linnncially, an'd that a marked  iiiipioveineiit has'taken place in the  mine.
