Tho Granby  (Jo. employs 500 men, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over $50,000,Tvhile the Rawhide pay roll is $18,000.'  Devoted to the Interests of the Boundary Mining: District  The Phoenix Pioneer is  published in tho highest  municipality in Canada^- '  altitude, 4,800 ft. The city  has a population of 1,500,  and possesses first-class  hotels, opera house, schools  FIFTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, OCT.  11, 1913  Another Faked Drowning  According- to the Rossland Mineri  "Frank Fincham. supposed to have  been drowned in the,Columbia river  ���jn the  early  part   of July,   is alive  and well in the north country.  When  1 seen a short time since, he  was in  Prince  Rupert,   and when accosted  by an  old "acquaintance,'  confessed  .his identity and.'his' reasons for disappearing. y~ This'information   has  /been received by the  Miner on such  reliable  authority as, to   be beyond  question.    The reasons given are of  . a confidential nature   a"nd were not  ,,communicated for publication.   Mrs.  Fincham   left a   few  days  since for  Pittsburg,   Pa.,-    where . her  sister  'Jives, and, at, the time of her departure, was   in ignorance   of  the (Vict  that her husband was still living.  <���_,    "It was early  in July that Finch-  'am,   accompanied   his   wife   to   the  boat  at  Castlegar,   on   her way to  jBanff.    He   then  boarded the train  ���and..returned #-to,  Kinnaird,- ostensibly to fish.     Failure to return at the  expiration   of his   holidays   excited  deep  concern,    and   search   parties  were   sent   out   by   the  provincial  government,    the   city   authorities,  the   West   Kootenay    Power   and  Light company and the Loyal Order  of  Moose,   of  which   Mr. Fincham  was secretary.    The Columbia river  was patrolled to   the  International  boundary line  and  rewards offered,  but all hope of recovering the body  was abandoned.    Mrs. Fincham was  "^Hockey Clubs Get Busy  A meeting of the sports committee of the ' Phoenix skating rink  was held Thursday , evening in  the store of E. A. Black, and the  following officers were elected for  ���the coming season:  Hon. Pres., F. C. Norcross; hon.  1st vice-pres., George Ellis; hon.  2nd vice-pres., J. E; Thompson;  hon. 3rd vice-pres,- John Mclaughlin. . President, N. J. Diechert;  treasurer, M. Sweetz'er; secretary,  E. A. Black; manager James  Walsh; rink manager, A. A.  White. Preparation will be made  at the rink at once to make ice as  soon as Lhc weather becomes sufficiently cold. Arrangements have  been made to have ventilators in  stalled in the building.  Number 13  notifiedj and returned to Rossland  from Banff, where she has since  been waiting in the hope of definite  news. The _supposition is that  Fincham worked his way out of the  country in some disguise and finally  reached the coast. As secretary of  'the Moose lodge; his books were in  perfect order, and kept with a model  of systematic method." Fincham  was for some months a resident of  Phoenix, and formerly one of the  electrician staff of the local substation.  The Rossland Hockey club has-  been reorganized for the coming  ! season.' The new officers are: L.  A. Campbell, M. P. P., honorary  president; J. S. Deschamp's, hon.  vice-president; G. A. Lafferty, president; A. W. Smith, vice-president;  W. F. Costello, manager; Allan  Newett, secretary. Executive.committee: S. Potter, John Donohue  and G. Griffith; A. W.- Sprague,  treasurer. According to the Rossland Miner, it is the intention this  year to try and get the best team in  the Kootenays. ��   -  The Hedley hockey and skating  club has just been reorganized, and  work has already been started on  enlarging and improving the rink,  which is to be 60 x 150 feet. '  At Nelson William Richardson,  has everything at the rink in shape  to take, advantage of the earliest  cold spell to make ice. ..  Nurses Appreciate Gift  The nurses of the Phoenix hospital wish through the Pioneer to  thank most heartily all those who  contributed towards the purchase of  the furniture for their   rooms   in the  Greenwood's Fall Fair  Greenwood's third annual fall  fair was ushered in last Tuesday  under most favorable conditions.  Excellent weather prevailed both  days. The exhibits of fruits, vegetables, minerals, ladies' needle  work, home cookery,-poultry, dogs,  horses, cattle and swine were 'exceptionally creditable.  When ' the fair was officially  opened Tuesday afternoon addresses  were,made by Mayor F. W. Mc-  Laine of Greenwood, Judge Brown  of Grand Forks, Mayor D. J. Matheson of Phoenix, C. C. Tilley, manager of the Greenwood fair, Fred  Clark of Grand Forks and J. R.  Jackhon, M. P.- P. for the Greenwood riding. The Greenwood  school children marched to the exhibition building and assembled in  front of the speakers' platform during the opening exercises.  The mineral display in charge of  Ola Lofstad was very artistically  arranged and represented some 30  different properties. The B.- C.  Copper company had a good-exhibit showing the various stages in  the process of smelting. P. Burns  & Co. had. an attractive exhibit  showing the various products of  this well known firm. The Coldstream Nurseries of Vernon was  represented with an exhibit of trees  and fruit.  The automobile  test   and   condition race proved a novel and   interesting feature for the opening  day.  There-were three cars, in  .the   race  from   Grand    Forks, 28   miles   distance    from    Greenwood.   *- Frank  Laramie,   demonstrating   an   Overland car, covered ,the distance,in 57  minutes.    Ed Stanaway, driving Pa  Studebaker car, came second'in^-58'  minutes. "    Fred    Russell    with    a  Studebaker car made a good  start,  but his car broke down on the way,  and he did  not   complete   the journey.    The silver trophy was award-  B. C. Mining    |  A big lead of ore is reported to  have been struck in the Wonderful  mine in the Slocan.  The Hazelton mining district  made a clean sweep of all entries  of minerals except .gold at the  Prince Rupert fair just held.  Churn drill operations by the Consolidated Copper Mines company of  Butte on the area between the Morris shaft and Recipetown have disclosed the presence of an ore deposit of surprising magnitude.  The owners of the Araucumo  mine near Hope Station have written the Department of Public  Works asking for an appropriation  for a road about 3600 feet long to  connect the property with the Cariboo road.  Henry Evre returned this week  to Grand Forks from the Glouster  'camp, where he has been keeping  'an eye on/orest fires. He brought  down a sample of ore from the Union mine. He says there are 24  feet of this ore now in sight, and  the wall has not yet been encountered.  The geological survey of East  Sooke has disclosed rich copper deposits which may prove financially  worth developing, according to Mr.  A. McLeod, of the Dominion Geological Survey, who was in Victoria  recently. A superficial examination has disclosed an abundance of  chalcopyrite, the yellow sulphide of  copper and iron, which is-one of  the most important copper ores.

Exports of copper from the United  States in September 34,314 tons, an  average of 1144 tons a day against  an average of 1120 tons a day in  August, and an average bf 938 tons  a'day in July.  McRae Bros, in Luck  McRae Bros., who are well  known in Phoenix, having conducted a stationery store here some  years ago, have bonded their mineral claims on Kennedy mountain  and Voigt camp to Utah and Pennsylvania people. The consideration  is reported at $250,000, with $1,000  down. The McRaes have been  amongst the earliest to' locate in  that district and after years of patient waiting they are about to  make a deal which means a great  deal toward the development of  their properties. There are some  18 claims included in the transaction. McRae Bros, have been in  business at Prince Rupert for some  time.

The properties of the B. C. Cop-  der company were closed down  Wednesday to allow the employees  the opportunity of attending the  fair.  A large crowd went down from  Phoenix on both days, and on each  evening to attend the dance. Automobiles, and other vehicles were  kept busy during the two days.  The people of Phoenix carried off  several prizes. D. L. McElroy's  horses were amongst the best on  exhibition, and he won $42 in  prizes. He won first prize for the  best draft team, first prize for the  best Percheron mare, and first prize  for the best draft colt. The Granby company won first prize for the  best driving team, and third prize  in the single driver class. D. McDonald won second money for his  driving learn. Fred Fredericks wop  first prize for chickens, and third  prizes for his geese and ducks.  Mrs. James Marshall, of the  Hotel Brooklyn, won first prize  for a tea cosy, which is some 150  years old, but shows work that cannot be beaten even at the present  day. She also won second prize  for a sofa cushion. Mrs Ab. miliar won second prize for a sofa  cushion.  Music for the dancing each evening was  furnished   by   Mrs.   Chas.  Knight and Chas.

Every  summer for the past seven or eight  years Mr. Williams has put in the.  three summer months doing development work on the Great Britain  group," at the head of Little Meadow creek, about eight miles west  of the head of Kootenay Lake.  "The general conditions of that section," said Mr. Williams, "are  good. There are'-large.- bodies of  ore along the Duncan river, and  prospects are excellent-for extensive  development work in the near future."   _���-   Road Work Suspended  E.   Spraggett,    government   road  superintendent for the Grand Forks  district,  came up   to    Phoenix   this  week and laid off   the    road   gangs  who were    working   between   Hale  and this place.     The road  gangs'in  this district are the last   to  be   laid  off, work in the other districts   having been suspended some  time ago.  Owing to the weather conditions at  this time of   the   year,    road   work  cannot be carried on as   satisfactorily as during the   summer   months,  and Mr. Spraggett thought best  to  suspend     operations      until      next  spring.    He has had a very successful season, and   has   built   a   great  many miles of new   roads   and   put  those already built in   good   repair.

Frank Shepherd, son of F. H.  Shepherd, -M.P., and another boy  named Jack Stannard, while hunting  in the vicinity of the lagoon at  Nanaimo, a few days ago, bagged  a fine panther. The boys, who are  only; seventeen years of age, were  out after birds, but when-the panther  came along, they opened fire and  killed it with their shot guns at  fairly close range. The-animal was  aii unusually fine specimen, and  measured 6ft. 4in.  A Weary Chase  On the other day the news arrived at the outside world of the murder, by Esquimos, of the American  expiorer,   Radford,   and   his   com  panion,   and now the statement is  given out that somewhere up in the  north, a very  small detachment of  red-coated   mounted  police are already  out  on a  pleasant little trip  of Heaven  only  knows  how,many  miles, looking   for the  murderers.  The job -is expected  to  take them  about  eighteen  months  to accomplish, and knowing the character of  the men  of that fine force, as only  Canadians know  them, it is fairly  safe to  say  that  nothing short of  the arrival  of the Judgment  Day  will prevent the patrol from executing the orders entrusted to them.

Saturday', Oct. Ii; 1913  The Larger Hope  Sir Oliver Lodge's address to the  British Association was an eloquent  challenge to the  "slime, and .water"  theory���as    materialism    has   been  called���������and  everything- to which it  leads.      The distinguished principal  of  the    University   of  Birmingham  does not dogmatize as  a lesser, man  might do, but he held out the larger  hope that this weary planet of ours,  which has been the home of the historic Christ  and  the birthplace of a  Shakespeare, is part of a great plan.  This is how he put his cautious, yet  hopeful position:  "We may not know our destiny,  but we must have a destiny of some  sort. Those who make denials are  just as likely to be wrong as those  who make assertions."  The conclusion of this deeply impressive address was an avowal^by  Sir Oliver of his personal belief that  personality persists - beyond the  death of the body. That is a mystery; but so too, is the fact that  such an avowal brings hope and  courage to the heart of the average  man. In his book "Man and the  Universe," Sir Oliver puts his posi-  tion in these words:  "Birth is change. Death is  change, perhaps; a melancholy  change, perhaps. That all depends  upon circumstances and special  cases, and on the point of view  from which things are regarded;  but, anyhow, an inevitable change.  I want to make the distinct assertion   that   a   really   existing   thing  That "Appalling Deathrate"  An immense  amount of fuss has  been created, aud much rubbish has  been   written   of late,   dealing with  what is called the "appalling death-  rate" during the past five years that  has been   going  on ,in  aviation circles.    The   number stated to have  lost their lives in five years by aviation accidents is  said  to have been  somewhere about  130, and includes  accidents of that kind in every part  of the earth.    But if the people who  are  so   busy . decrying   this   latest  science   were confronted   with - the  figures enumerating the number of  fatalities that attendnd the introduction of the-steam engine  into England alone, the so-called "appalling  deathrate"    among   aviators  would  certainly not  be  considered   out of  proportion.  According   to   a   despatch   from  Ottawa, the policy of the immigration department for the next year is  for some restriction  and discrimination in the matter of people coming  in.^   Orders  have been issued to its  agents   to    confine   their   efforts   lo  the  encouragement    of   only   that  class of people  who intend to settle  on the land.      This course has been  adopted   because  of  the  enormous  influx of those of the general laboring class   who  are arriving in such  numbers and flooding the cities and  industrial centres of the Dominion.  The London Standard, in a long  editorial, recently hinted that British  capital, represented by Pearson and  Son, are likely to give Colombia a  chance to revenge herself against  Panama by. constructing an ocean  to ocean canal by way of the Atrato  and Cupica rivers.  "What," says the article, "is to  prevent Columbia, if it,has sufficient  support from- foreign capitalists  from making this canal itself, and  thereby setting up a formidable  rival to the enterprise which is now  so rapidly nearing'completion?"

BO  KNOB HILL AVENUE  Our Ultimate Worth  In his real to magnify his office,  a German analyst has worked out  an elaborate estimate of the commercial worth of the human body,  when that wondrous organism is reduced to its constituent elements by  the chemist and placed on .the market. The figures as given by the  Medical Press and Circular, show-  that a 1501b. human being is worth  something like $7.82.  His fat is worth $2.60; of the iron  we hear so much about, there is just  about enough to make four or five  small-sized carpet tacks. There is  sufficient lime to whitewash a good-  sized chicken-house. The phosphorous would be sufficient to put  heads on 2,200 matches, and there  is enough magnesium to make a  nice little firework. The average  human body contains enough albumen for 100 eggs, and possibly  there is a chance of it containing  a teaspoonful of sugar and a pinch  of rather good salt.  At first sight, says the journal,  we seem to have found a useful out  let for our surplus population. To  turn the unemployable into whitewash and get the unemployed to  apply it to our chicken-houses,  sounds simple enough, but it is not.  For the elements are so mixed in  us that, when nature sets them up  and says, this is a man, it would  cost more than our $7.82 to,uturn  our substance to any baser uses.  It is just bad luck that when we  have done with our bodies we cannot  hand   them   over   to   the hard-  > King George has presented a portrait of himself and Queen Mary to  the people of Canada, to be hung in  the House of Commons at Ottawa.  If Tired of Wood, try Princeton Coal  A WONDERFUL BS3G0VERY  An eminent scientist, the other day,  Save bis opinion that the most wonderful discovery of recent years was  the discovery of Zam-Buk. Just  think! As soon as a single thin layer  of Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or  a ��ore, suoh injury is insured against  blood poison! Not one species of  microbe has been found that Zam-Buk  does not kill!  Then again. As soon as Zam-Buk  is applied to a sore, or a cut, or to  skin disease, it stops the smarting.  That is why children are sueli frieuds  Of Zam-Buk. They care nothing for  the science of the thing. . All they  know "is that Zam-Buk stops their  pain. Mothers should never forget  this.  Again. As soon as Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or to a diseased  part, the cells 'beneath the skin's surface are so stimulated that new  healthy tissue is quickly -formed. This  forming of fresh healthy tissue jrom  below is Zani-Buk's secret of healing.  The tissue thus formed is worked up  to the surface and literally casts off  the diseased tissue above it. This is  why Zam-Buk cures are permanent.  Only the other day Mr. Marsh, of  101 Delorlmier Ave., Montreal, called  upon the Zam-Buk Company and told  them that for over twenty-five years  he had been a martyr to eczeona. B3a  hands were, at ono time so covered  with sores that he bad to sleep in  gloves. Four years ago Zam-Buk was  introduced to hint, and in a few  months it cured him.
