Roosa, local manager of the  Dominion Copper company since last  July, has been appointed receiver for the  company, the appointment being made  in a Canadian court a few days ago.  The appointment of a receiver was  made on the application of the National Trust company, limited, of Toronto, trustee under the Dominion Copper company's mortgage.  - The application was made by reason  of default in the terms of the company's  mortuage, under which bonds to the  extent of $1,000,000 were issued. The  mortgage provided that an amount  equal to 10% of the outstanding bonds  should, by June 1st of each year, be  turned into the sinking fund for the  annual retirement of a portion of the  issue.  As $:oo,ooo of the issue has already  been retired, there are outstanding but  $800,000 bonds, and the amount  which should have been put into the  sinking fund on June tst of this year  was $8o,coo, but the company de  faulted on this payment.  Mr. Justice Morrison, in Vancouver  last week, granted an order to wind up  the estate and appoint a provisional  liquidator. On Oct. 6th Chief Justice  Hunter appointed P. F. Roosa as  provisional liquidator.  Boundary Mining Notes  The site for the new 15-stamp mil!  at the jewel mine, West 'Fork, is now  cleared, surveyed and ready for the  foundations.'  Three cars of test ore from the War  Eagle, aggregating 100 tons, were  shipped to the Consolidated company's smelter at Trail this week.  The B.C. Copper comriany's smelter  treated 10,139 tons of ore this week,  as follows: Mother Lode, 8,068; uro  Denoro, 1,552; other  properties, 519.  There Was a general falling off this  week in shipments 'from Boundary  mines, with the exceptionlof the Snow-  shoe which had a slightly increased  tonnage.    ��� :;  The operators on ihej Lucky Shot  tunnel, now in sixty feet, have got  through thirty feet of very hard rock  and are progressing more quickly  in the driving of the tunnel.  Eight men are. now working on the  b. C. Copper properties in Wellington  camp. The sinking in', the 35-foot  shaft has been showing some fine ore.  The entire shaft is in ore,, but the last  ten feet is particularly good looking.  Sinking is going on in the\ shaft on the.  Jack Pot with satisfactory results.  Before leaving for New York last  week Ernest E- Ling, the.special agent  who had been inspecting the'Dominion  Copper company properties, stated  that he expects to return in the course  of a few weeks when operations would  be resumed. He expects appliances  to be installed at the smelter for more  economical handling of ore and that  the furnaces will be run to the limit  of their capacity.  DUNCAN ROSS TO  SPEAK IN PHOENIX  Will Address Public   Meeting  Here Wednesday  A public meeting will be held in  Miners' Union hall, Phoenix, on Wednesday evening, Ociober 14th. Dunoan  Ross, the Liheral standard bearer in  the Dominion constituency of Yale-  Cariboo at ihe appr.aching elections,  will be present and address the elector.1-  on the public questions of ihe day,  As  the aimpa gu  is   now   on,   and  I  bLjaJULLUUU.!^^  RANGES AND  HEATERS  We have in. stock the biggest line of  RANGES and HEATING STOVES ever  opened up in Phoenix.  Heaters  from  $4.00  up  Ranges  from  $12.50  up  Cooking Stoves from $15.00 up  Dominion Copper Stock.  Replying to a query re Dominion  Copper stock the Boston Commercial  has the following to say:  "When one has carried a stock like  Dominion Copper down to its present  low price, and is faced with, the ne-  cessity of.selling it for almost nothing,  or holding it and going through a reorganization, he is usually better off to  take the latter course. We believe  'that the "Donmiran^Cappcr- properties  have value. If the company is reorganized on proper lines, furnished with  necessary working capital and given  thoroughly efficient management, your  stock should eventually have a value  considerably in excess of its present  price."  Harvest Home Services.  Harvest home services will be held  in Phoenix Methodist church tomorrow  evening at seven-thirty. On Tuesday  evening, Oct. 13th, a harvest home  supper will he served in the church,  followed by a musical and literary  program.  Notice.

Dickinson, agent for the Giant  Powder company, has a curious and  startling souvenir of his company's  magazine on the Eholt road in the  shape of a padlock which distinctly  bears the indentation of a revolver  bullet. Supposition���if the marksman  had missed his mark, eh, what!  each of the candidates in the local riding  will be addressing meetings in Phoenix,  every' elector should make it a point  to attend each of the meetings and  hear the issues discussed, and be able  to cast his ballot intelligently.

After a hunting expedition of about  three weeks in the vicinity of Canyon  City, West Fork, Ralph Gilbert, Alex.  McRae and Earl Kelsey returned on  Monday with two deer each and considerable other game. The excursion  of the nimrods to the famed hunters'  valley was replete with many exciting  incidents. They made the acquaintance of some bears, but on rather  embarassing occasions, with the result  that there were no casualties.

Rice and Green the men arrested at  Merrit on suspicion of being connected with the hold-up, were released  from custody last Saturday, the prison  ers having satisfied the officers of their  innocence.  The Age of Commercialism.  There is always, some reason for success. In this age of commercialism,  everything must have some real merit  in it to be a lasting success. Anything  must be worth one's time and money,  or the public will soon renegate it to  the rubbish pile. This is as true of plays  as of everything else. They must be  real, sterling, sound and solid value to  have a long continued success. The  ever-growing triumph of Clarence  Bennett's "The Holy City," which has  so completely distanced all other religious plays and has endeared itself to  American theatre-going public, tells  its own story of the triumph of real  merit aud true worth. It is the play  of the century! "One of the few, of  the immortal plays that were not born  to die!" Its auditors all pronounce it  the greatest play they have ever seen.  It has no rival, no competitor! Phoenix  opera house, Oct. 24th. Seats at  T. Brown's.  Latest Mining Slock Quotations.  Corrected to Ot. 10, 1008.

The Phoenix Pioneer  And Boundary Mining TournaJ,  honorable, then buying votes will cease;  but that stage is far from being reached  yet.    The   pulpit   fulminates  against  corruption, but the church takes to its  bosom the corrupt politician, provided  he has money and doesn't get caught.  The preacher may denounce corruption  as much as he pleases, but so long as  the church honors the grafter who has  money, so long will such preaching be  empty noise.    The purist may rail on  the politicians who are corrupt in their  public life, but so long as he is ready  to support   his own party when it is  corrupt,  so long will the purist be a  light to attract the grafter rather than  to  warn   him.    We   need   a   higher  standard of personal morality, and not  till we get that will we get a   higher  standard of public morality.  : 1UOU CR (ATDtDiiTS BV T��  PIONEER PUBLISHING CO.  *r'rao>i*rrx. u. c  T.ALFRED LOVE.

Following are extracts from a letter,  dated Vienna, Austria, Sept. 9th,  written by Mrs. (Dr.) R. B. Boucher,  formerly of Phoenix, to Mrs. J. L.  J Martin, which will be read with interest by her many friends here:  I have seen so much since I last  wrote you I could fill pages and pages,  had I the time. Certainly it is a great 1  education to travel, and I hope you  will be able to have our experiences  before long. Perhaps you know that  my sister met us in New York, and  was with us for five months, and you  can imagine what a pleasure it was to  have her with us.  We were thirteen days from Phifa-,  delphia to London. While in London  we stopped at a boarding house always  filled with Canadians and Americans,  and while the doctor attended clinics I  "sight saw." I did old London well;  it was a great education to me in art,  paintings, sculpture and architecture.  In Vienna we are in the home of  grand opera. Mrs. Willcox gave us a  letter of introduction to her niece who  is in grand opera here. She is one of  the greatest singers in opera, and sings  in the Emperor's opera house.

These  qualities render it invaluable toall who,  through unhealthy surroundings,  6edentnry occupation, worry, overwork,  or climiitlo changl'S, lack the vitnlity  which only good food, well digested,  can supp'y. When you nre tortured  ���with iiuflgestion, so that yon can't eat,  can't work, can't think, can't sleep, you  should at once give Mother Seigel's  Syrup a trial.

Capper Statistics.  The statistical position of copper for  the first eight months of 1908 shows as  fo||ows On pound"):  Total production for eight  months  .   659,000,000  Exports for the first eight  months ...... ..... .   466,000,000  Leaving for domestic consumption       19-1,000,000  Domestic consumption at present is  estimated by leading trade authorities  at about 35,000,000 pounds per month,  and it is claimed that during the early  part of the year���January and February, particularly���domestic consumption was not in excess of 20,000,000  pounds per month.  This would indicate an average consumption in this country for the first  eight months of this year of 27,500,-  000 pounds per month, or a total of  220,000,000 pounds, as against available production of 193,000,000 pounds,  showing an absorption from stocks of a  possible 27,000,000 pounds.  During the same period, however,  _ stocks.bf copper in__Eurnpe, as represented by the visible supply, have increased materially, the actual increase  being 21,000 long tons, or 47,000,000  pounds, which would indicate that the  total production of coppei has not been  absorbed by 20,000,000 pounds.  It should he considered, however,  that the August production of copper  ���99,000,000 pounds���was the largest  month's production of the year, but  this copper will not be available until  October.  Exports of copper fur the month of  August amounted to 26,000 tons, or  58,000,000 pounds, which would leave  for domestic consumption about 41,  000,000 pounds, which is probably not  very, much in excess ol the copper now  going into consumption in this country.

McCague, who is well known in the  Boundary, having lor years operated  the stage line between Phoenix and  Creenwood, and who had ihe second  cabin in Knoxville, having been a resident since the firs', tells me that he  has never seen a man broke or hungry  during the time he has been here.  Such yarns appear lo have been created  by men whose imaginations exceeded  their veracity. The only objection, as  nearly as I can learn, that laboring  men have to working here is the scale  of wages paid by contractors on the  railw  ���ay.  Phoenix Railway Tlmetible.  C. P.  R.

Stephens, formerly Phoenix city clerk and treasurer,  will be read with interest by his many  friends and others interested in the G.  T. P. terminus:  Dear Editor,���A'though it is now  nearly two months since I left Phoenix,  and you probably have given up hope ol  hearing from me regarding the outlook  in Prince Rupert, you will perhaps  I'pardon my delay when I tell you that  I have been busily employed everyday  since coming, during which time in  addition to doing some business, more  thin I hud expected to do during the  whole winter season, we have built,  all alone, an office with sleeping accommodations, 14x24, all double  boarded and papered, shingled and  ceiled, and since there were no horses  available we had to carry our material  a distance of from 200 to 400 yards.  And lo make matters worse my household goods and office furniture have  not yet arrived, and I was obliged to  build some furniture for my office.  After thirteen years straight office work,  work of this kind looked pretty rough,  but I was big enough and contraty  enough to do it, and went at it, and  after a few days felt strong enough for  any kind of work. '  Prince   Rupert, notwithstanding all  reports to the contrary,  looks good���  to me at least.    We have a population,  including Knoxville and  Vickersville,  both of which are in the townsite, which  should be considerably   in  excess   of  that   of  Phoenix, a great number ol  whom   are   former   residents   of  the  Kootenays and the Boundary, and as  the saying goes, not a man of them  has   "cold    feet"    The   townsite   is  rolling in contour, but one which with  reasonable expenditure in the making  of aiieets;;eic., wiiroeamo'tigth'e finest  in the province.    The harbor is completely   land locked, deep and practically   all   that  could be desired as a  harbor.    Taking the situation generally,  it looks to me like a fitting site for the  terminus of a transcontinental railway.  Everybody is anxiously awaiting the  opening  of   the   townsite,   for  nearly  everyone is a squatter and consequently  unsettled.     Railway construction is not  progressing   as   rapidly as it would if  there   were more men for  the crews,  but the situation is improving.  The   weather,   rather  the   climate,  which so sorely hurts many of the good  people of our coast and other cities to  the south, and which I think I have  seen   commented   upon    unfavorably  even  in the columns of the Pioneer,  may not be all that might be desired,  and is something on which  I will refrain from passing a positive opinion  upon,   since   my   residence   here   has  been for a short time only, suffice it  to say at this writing that I have seen  much worse weather in Kootenay and  Boundary  at the same season of the  year, and unless it proves much worse  than I expect,  I  may  be a long time  in Prince Rupert belore I leave on account of the climate.    I have enjoyed  perfect health since I arrived, and the  fact that there is little or no sickness  in a place the size ol this one, without  sanitary appliances, should not rt fleet  with  discredit upon the climate.  I have read in some of our papers  of laborers digging clams on the beach  to keep body and soul together because  there was no work for them, but since  I have been here 1 have failed to s^e  a hungry man, or one who could not  get   work    if  he  wanted   it.    Jimmy  In   many ways  Prince  Rupert is a  novel   town.    The   townsite   has   not  yet been placed on the market, only a  small   portion being  as   yet surveyed  although ihe survey parties have been  increased and the work is being pu<hed  rapidly now, yet it has a population in  excess  of  many   of the incorporated  cities of the province.    It  has a citizens' 'committee, which attends to street  improvements and public affairs, etc.,  with money voluntarily subscribed by  its citizens, and spent apparently to the  satisfaction of the residents, and before  this reaches  you will have a fire department.    There is   not  a   licensed  hotel or saloon in the placr-, is as orderly and even more orderly than many  of our older cities with their police and  police courts, and crime is as yet unknown in the place,    Most of its residents are of the class, that, in the hope  of improving their circumstances, are  courageous  enough   to undertake the  hardships of pioneering in a new town,  such   as    this  one,   which   the   fainthearted never see, for they never pass  some   of  our   more   southerly   coast  cities,    where   they   tell   of  proposed  overhead   sewage  and   water   systems  made necessary because there  is  no  earth, but solid   rock to   the surface;  yet they also tell you that good streets  will be impossible here because it is  all swamp and mire.  Prince Rupert is certainly knocked  in the southern portion of the province,  but, notwithstanding, there are those  even there who have confidence in the  great future of the place; and in Prince  Rupert itself there are none who have  not that confidence. The place is now  weil supplied with business houses and  prices are reasonable. I think nearly  every necessity and every luxury, except boose, is cheaper than in Phoenix,  fuel alone excepted. Fuel is higher  on account of the limited facilities of  handling it.  I have written much here to correct  erroneous statements, made at random  by the uninformed, and not in a spirit of  boosting for.a_place..which has.a location only on the map and in which all  the residents, with one or two exceptions,   are  squatters.    The   time   has  not arrived for boosting, and while I  am glad I came when I did,  I would  not advise people, who might be less  fortunate in securing business, to come,  except as. sight-seers, before the town  has been opened to the public.    Sight  seers and travellers,   and   in   fact  all  others, can get as good hotel accommodation  in   Prince   Rupert   as anywhere on the coast and need fear no  inconvenience   in this direction; they  may   have  to   bring   their "morning's  morning" with them, but all hotels are  well stocked with blankets.  In the above I have taken up so  much room with a denial of libelous  reports that I feel I would be imposing  upon good nature to write more at  this time, but should this prove of  interest, and you desire it later, I shall  be glad to briefly, at a future writing,  state as accurately as I can some of th<  resources which we expect to make  Prince Rupert one of the leading  cities   of  this   province.���Very   trul>  > ours,  M.

Bids have  been asked in supplying 375,000  pounds of lake copper, and responses  have been received from the United  Metals Selling company at 14 cents,  Quincy Mining company at 13.95  cents, and from the Nassau Smelting  and Refining company at 13.90 cents  per pound. The metal is to be used  in the ordnance department.

Resolved, that aunt eaters are all  riuht in their place, so ate uncle eaters.  Everything' is all right in its place.  That's the law of nature. You are all  pyht in your place. But each one  should he in his place. A mule doesn't  belong on a race track, nor Mr: Stingy  1'ightw-id doe-ti't l.elong in heaven,  lie won't gel 'here either. Old Cross-  patch belongs in 'he mad house. He  will get there. If you don't think that  vnu are in your place get out of it.  Nothing is stopping you, hut  yourself.  Did you ever think what your ad in  the newspiper is doing for you? When  you close your store in the evening  and go home to your family and fire-  -ide, not thinking about your business  at all, then it is that the paper is being  pored over in hundreds of homes���the  homes from which your trade is drawn.  And there ts your ad domg its work  silently, but surely, and if you have  taken the pains to make it attractive  its work will be all the more attractive.
