Appear at Miners' Union  Mall on Thursday Evening.-  Arrangements have'been made for  the appearance here of All-alley wood,  the prince of comedians, and his excellent company. .Mr. Hey wood has,  during the past ten years, appeared in  all the principal towns and cities in  the United States, and established a  reputation of which he i.s justly proud.  He has returned many times to the  same places, always meeting with unqualified success. From the opening  to the close of his season he i.s greeted  everywhere with large and delighted  audiences. The reasons for his great  success artistically and financially are  obvious. His comedy i.s always  bright and delightfully refreshing, and  while he convulses his audiences with  laughter, there is never the faintest  suggestion of coarseness or vulgarity.  His success in securing the very best  artists to support him, his desire to  equal or exceed the promises made in  his advertising, and steadfast determination to "always keen the confidence of the people.'' These principles  carefully followed out have made his  name a household word and a positive guarantee of a first-class performance.  Mr. Heywood and his company  will appear at Miners' Union Hall,  next Thursday evening, October iSth.

Gaudier, of  Rossiand, in the presence ol" the immediate friends of the contracting  parties..  The bride was assisted by Miss  Alice McKenzie, of Greenwood, and  was given away by J. A. McKenzie,  brother of the groom, A. P. McKenzie, another brother, acting in the  capacity of groomsman.  The ceremony concluded, all sat  down to "a sumptuous- repast, after  which the newly married couple drove  to their netv home in I'hoenix,   where! the new'school building  the groom had prepared , a cozy home J in I'hoenix  this fa  IS NOW E.N ROUTE TO KAMLOOPS.  i Fred  Ford  Got  Six Months For Stealing a I  j Suit of Clothes. j  ���' ���       ,, (     Last week, Thtirsdav, a man named!

Great interest is being taken in the  opening of the Coiviile Indian reservation), which the, U. S. government  ���has just opened to settlement. , .'The  country i.s said to be of extreme fertility, and a rush similar to that which  took 'place when Oklahoma was  thrown open to settlement, is being  looked for. 'i'he reservation is in the  northern part of Washington State,  and close to the Canadian boundary.  The principal places are Molson, Che-  saw and holster, which are within a  few miles ot the boundary line, and  they are most easily reached by  the Canadian Pacific Railway's  new Poundary Creek. extension to  Midway, the distance from that point  being only 19 miles .to Holster, 20'^  to Chesaw and 23J.4 to Molson by a  good wagon road. In the past, difficulty has been experienced in getting  shipments of freight to those parts  owing to lack of customs facilities, but  this will now be completely overcome,  as the United States .government has  just assigned a custom's officer to  Midway to facilitate'the transfer of  American freight to those points.  nouncemeut, a public meeting was held  at the old log school house, for the  purpose of deciding on a location for  to be erected  Two sites had  been offered free; one was two lots on  Brooklyn avenue, by George W. R11111-  berger, and the other was five lots in  block 26, of the Old Irousidesaddition,  at the corner of" Second street and  Grey Eagle avenue, offered by the  Granby Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. A ballot showing that those  present preferred the Jirooklyn avenue  site.  Since the matter was thus apparently  settled, it has been pretty thoroughly  canvassed, and it does not seem to be  entirely satisfactory to some even in  the lower end of town. It is said that  the cost of excavation will be more than  the department i.s likely to stand.  Thus the matter stood this week,  when Wm. Burns, inspector of schools,  arrived in town 0:1 one of his periodical  visits. The site selected was shown to  him, and looking it over carefully he  said that he did not think the department of education would approve of  the choice.  In the meantime, as will be noticed  by the advertisement in another column, Secretary Matheson is calling for  tenders for the construction ofthe new  building.

The upper ' and lower parts ��� of  I'hoenix, which have heretofore been  connected only by the roundabout  wagon-road, will shortly be joined by  a more direct piece of roadway.

The probabilities are that tew "will be  ready this side of the middle of next  year to use the power, so that there is  i no advantage to be gained by installing  j the big and costly plant before next  spring.

Mind, I do not say the greatest  gold  mine in America, but the greatest gold  mine in the world."    And   the  genial  Governor strongly emphasised the last  part of  his , statement.    "There are,"  lie continued, "2,000,000 tons  of ore  in sight in the Le Roi, and the ore will  average $16 a ton.    Allow  $S   a  ton  for cost of production,   and   you   still  have $16,000,000 in dividends in sight  in the Le Roi.    And, mind, all this is  above the 900 foot level.    There is no  telling what this  great  mine   will do  when depth i.s attained.''    The Le Roi  can now  ship  1,000 tons a day,   and  can earn in dividends 50 per cent, on  its capital ot" ,-��1,000,000.    The ore  will average 2 per cent, copper, and 2  per cent copper should pay lor cost of  production with copper at 16 1-2 cents  a pound.    The  gold   is  clear   profit.  The'capacity ofthe Le Roi   reduction  works  has been doubled so as to treat  the entire Le Roi 'output, and aiso the  output of Le Roi No. 2.    Bat the  reduction works must be increased still  further to take the output of the Kootenay and  the  Great   Western groups.  On the 700 foot level of the Le Roi is  a shoot of ore   104   feet   thick.    This  shoot of ore was discovered long after  the London people bought it, and it is  the discovery ol this immense ore shoot  that    made  Kxgovernor   Mackintosh  emphatically proclaim the projierty   as  ��� After many delays work on the Saying out of the new wagon road from  the mean-! Phoenix to Summit camp, is'at last in  progress, and the actual work of construction will begin as soon as the survey is completed.  F.arly this week Engineer'.-��'. A.  Stoess, of Columbia, who has. charge  of the government road work in this  section was in town, accompanied bv  I). M. Waters, P. L. S, of Grand  Forks, for the purpose of selecting the  best route for the new wagon road.  Mr. Waters was left in charge, and  is now running the necessary lines for  the new road, which it is expected  will be.about five miles in length.  Mr. Waters states that", although the  rules of the department of public  works will allow a wagon road to. be  constructed on a grade as sleep as  eight per cent, he expects to do much  better than that on this road, where  the maximum will be not more than  five per cent. As there will doubtless  be heavy loads hauled over the..road  from the establishments of our wholesalers, this will he a distinct advantage  to ail who have occasion to use it.  The road will leave Pluenix at the  C. P. R. station, and go out of the  Old Ironsides addition north oyer  Fifth street, and thence on out  through the No. 13 claim. It wiii  not follow the route of the- old trail,  but will touch it in one or two places,  coming out at or near the Oro Denoro  mine.

Trail to While's Camp.  Last week a route for the   new trail  to connect Phoenix with While's camp  was selected, and the work   of blazing  and   constructing    has  been   started.  The part to be built will be about five  or six miles in length, and   will   touch  the loe. Tavlor   road   below Hartford  . Junction, about a mile from   Mr. Tay-  | lor's   residence.

It i.s learned from Camp McKinney  that the Cariboo-McKimiey Co.'s  Cariboo mine is'now giving employment to about 60 men. Work at the  mine is proceeding along the usual  lines, so that there is nothing out of  the common to chronicle respecting it.

This  company was  organized   in Rossland,  where much of its stock is   held.     Its  present     embarrassed     position-   uas  brought about by the failure of  many  stockholders to meet assessments,  the  two made having realized   only   about  $17,400 instead  of $31,500,   the  full  amount that should have been received.

COCHRANE I  The difference between theory and  condition is exemplified by the approved suggestion throughout Jiritish Columbia that the provincial tax on metal  ores be made differential; that is,  practically, that the tax be doubted in  the case of ores sent out ofthe province  for treatment, the idea being to encourage local smelters,, which in the  main, i.s a good plan, but under the  existing conditions in British Columbia,  is not to be given serious consideration.  ���^.Mining and   Scientific   Press.   "  In ancient Italy, when Rome was the  centre ofthe then  civilized' world  saying was current that all  roads  to Rome.    That is to say, that  was by far the most  important  in that gay country or  a  led  Rome  centre  in the world.  Kvery one went to Rome and sooner  or later had business in Rome. No  one ever thought of visiting that part  of the Roman empire without seeing  the great city itself.  It is interesting to note that, in a  modest way, Phoenix excites as much  interest in this section as did the city  of ' the conquering Calsars. No  visitors of note come into the Boundary without t. king in the mines of  Phoenix. If they did leave it out of  their itinerary they would feel thai  ihe trip to British Columbia had been  incomplete. The fame of our ore producers is already co-extensive with the  boundaries of the continent, and even  reaches across the deep blue sea. It  is therefore little wonder that all kinds  and condiiions of men like to see "the  place where the mines are."  All roads lead to Phoenix, so far as  the 'Boundary is concerned, and as  time passes on this camp will continue  to tower head and shoulders above all  other Boundary camps, and eventually  above all others in British Columbia.  This may seem optimistic, but we ask  only that a little time be given to make  good the prophesy.  In the orchard- of W. J. llanna there  i:: a splendid pear tree in full bloom.  This is a commentary on the salubrity  of the climate here, which it is doubtful if even Vancouver can paraelel."  Commenting on this the 'Greenwood  .Miner obseives: "In other parts of  Canada fruit ticy.'s bloom in the spring.  Victorians always had the name of being a little slow, but it was not known  heretofore that the fruit trees had been  affected by the general inertia. When  fruit trees begin to cultivate mossback  customs it is time to place horticulture on the statute books among the  learned professions.���Victoria Times.  D. J.

Already there are three candidates  in nomination for the honor of representing the Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay  constituency at Ottawa, to succeed  Hewitt Bostock. The liberals have  put up Mr. Galliher, a well known  Nelson lawyer; the conservatives have  nominated Mr. MacNeill, an equally  -.veil known Rossland lawyer; and the  laboring men, to make it interesting,  have decided to run Chris Foley, ol  Rossland, who is a miner.  The two old line parties certainly  hoped that there would be no purely  labor candidate, as it complicates the  situation to a large extent. All three  candidates have hosts of friends, but  nnly one can be successful at the polls.  The constituency is so large, and the  expense of getting around so heavy,  lhat it is pretty certain a close canvas  ���will not be made by the nominees.  Kacli local organization-must meet its  own campaign expenses. The election is likely to be a quiet one, comparatively speaking.  In nominating a candidate for  Vale-Cariboo, the Labor convention at  NelsonTnadc a mistake. With not a  shadow of chance of winning, the campaign can only result in bringing discredit on organized labor. The defeated candidate, whether conservative  or liberal, will think that the object  aimed at in placing a labor candidate  in the field was to defeat the party  which he represents. As a conse  quence, labor legislation introduced in  the house will receive opposition from  the party defeated. This may look  like revenge, but it is good politics.  The candidate Chris Foley is one of  the ablest men in labor circles in the  the province.'-���Greenwood Miner.  SCOn & McLAREN,  Contractors, and Builders.  Estimates Furnished.  PHOENIX, B. C  I PlioenixflewsCo.  Under the new law as to delinquent  co-owners, delinquent partners in a  mineral claim can be made to pay for  their proportion of work by .publishing  a notice for 90 days in a paper printed  in the district in which the claim is located. If at the end of 90 days they  have not paid for their share of work  and all costs of advertising, they lose  their interest in the property. This  power, which was last session statutorily conferred upon mine co-owners,  unable to > induce their associates to  dear their .due share of legitimate expenditure, is heartily approved by/the  workers of our provincial mining communities. Already several notices  under the above law have appeared in  West Kootenay journals.���-Vancouver  News-Advertiser.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS.  November '7th has finally been  selected as the date of the Dominion  election. With less than four weeks  to work in, the campaign will be short.  In 1S96 the total vote in this constituency was 3303. In Juno last the  vote was 11,292 in the same territory.  It is probable, however, that in November the poll, will not be qui teas large  as in the provincial elections oi June  gih last.  WHAT THE EDITORS SAV.  Chris Foley Candidate.  "That the wisdom, of the decision of  the labor convention to place a candidate in this constituency i.s open to  serious question will be admitted by  not "a few of the leaders themselves of  organized labor. Opposition was  offered to it at the Rossland metting  by the very gentleman who was subset  quently the choice of the convention  and.who, it i.s well known, accepted  the nomination simply out of loyalty to  the cause of which he is now the most  prominent champion in the riding.  1'he position which he assumed in opposition to organized labor conducting  such a.campaign was strictly on the  ground that he saw no likelihood of  success.  If however, the wisdom of the convention can be doubted in arraying  labor in a separate "and hostile political  camp no question can be raised as to  the judiciousness of its choice of a  candidate. It will be generally conceded that a better selection than Mr.  Chris Foley could not have been made.  He i.s now well known throughout the  rootenay, and while always a staunch  and unwavering friend of the cause of  labor, he has invariably given evidence  of being actuated by an honest desire  for the good of the community, as a  whole and has never failed to advise  peace and harmony where they could  be obtained without compromising the  interests of those who looked to him  for counsel and guidance. We do not  think he will be elected. We do not  think it wise that he should be, but he  will make a stronger appeal to the  labor vote than any man in the constituency.���Rossland A! iner.  J. F.

Just before midnight of Thursday,  .(th inst., the death took place in  the  Greenwood., hospital   of   Eugene   J).  Sullivan,   a comparative stranger in  this province, except to many who had  known him in Uutte,  Montana. - His  active life followed by,a death almost  tragic 111 its unexpectedness and its occurence in a strange land away from all  connected with him' by close faniily  ���ties, was one of those singular contrasts  that are looked  for in  fiction  rather  than in real life.    The late Mr. Sullivan  born at Houghton, Michigan, U. S. A.,  in 1855, he was one of a   family of  nine, six boys and three girls.    His  father died whilst these were all young,  so it fell to the lot of Gene, as he was  familiarly called, to in a large measure  uke the place of his, dead  father.   It  is said of him that he did  this as few  would have done it faithfully and well,  not sparing himself but doing his best  to fill the great gap the early loss of a  father to   a ' young family.    Leaving  Michigan  Eugene - Sullivan went   to  liutte, Montana, in 1878 he being 23  years of age.    A few* years later he was  nominated and elected sheriff of Silver  Bow county, Montana, and after serving a two year's"term was again  nominated and received the largest number  of votes, but his; second election  was  successfully.challenged oil'..tile scors of  irregularity on the part of some of his  , supporters in one of the precincts, so  |he had to retire from office.   For niany  years though he continued most popular  in the city of Butte and indeed through-  lout the whole county, where his record  fas sheriff was an  honorable one,  his  Jterm o( office being marked   by zeal  pnd impartiality.    For a long while he  [was in the hotel  business at Walker-  : ville, Butte, this bringing him into intimate association with large numbers  of his fellow townsmen.    He .took  a  very lively interest and an active part  in State politics and his  magnetic influence was felt in these matters.    He  is reputed to, have been  fearless and  outspoken,   and,     to    have been a  warm friend of the laboring men, whose  interests lie espoused.   Of course such  a man could not well avoid  taking a  ���side in the Daly-Clark feud and it was  freely stated by his friends that it was  this that eventually, led  to  his  being  practically ruined, both politically and  financially.     the    antagonism     and  animosity of wealthy participants  iri  i that feud pursuing his relentlessly un-  j til finally he left a country in which he  ���still left hosts, of friends and .well-wish:  ! ers as well as those of an opposite nature  whose persistent opposition had to all  intents and purposes broken his heart.  Having been .well  associated with  : "lining in Montana, it was but natural  Ithat h.e ^houId turn  his attention  to  one of the new mining camps,: of the  west to which many of his old-time  Ifncnds  had preceded him.    In   January of the current year he left Butte  |or Republic, Washington; later in the  I'ear he came thence to the Boundary  district, whereafter a while he went to  vork at the Winnipeg mine in charge  SM which he found a friend of 20 years  Standing in the person of Mr. Nicholas  II regear, formerly manager of the well  Bknown Le Koi mine at Rossland.    On  Pe evening of September   14  he was  ftoo unwell to continue at work so he  I'-iid off.    He remained at  the  mine  f until the evening of the 19th, when he  Iwnt to the neighboring town of Phoc-  {'���ix remaining there until October 1st,  Iwhen he returned to the mine.    Finding that he was very ill  Mr.  Tregear  Ijit once arranged for the removal of  "is friend to the Greenwood  hospital,  "���hence he was taken on Tuesday, 2nd  I "st*   Upon arrival there it was found  jtnat his case was a serious one,  so  I serious in  fact that there was little  |oliance of recovery.    The worst result  |*o!Iowed, for late on Thursday night  iHeath came.    Word was at once tele-  where the* casket was placed, on the  train for shipment enroute to Butte,  Mr. Daniel Sullivan being in charge.  The pall bearers at the funeral were  Mr. J.'Roderick Robertson, of Nelson,  managing director of the London &  II. C. Goldfields, Ltd., of London,  England, who was in Greenwood on a  business visit;.Mr. Nicholas Tregear,,I  superintendent of the Winnipeg mine;  Mr. John Ilnnley, a cousin of deceased,  superintendent of the K. Hell mine-  Mr. R. E. (Barbarian) Brown, formerly  ofthe Coeur d'Alenes; Col. I. P.  Armstrong, well known in Spckane;  Mr. James Cunningham, an old tinier  in the Boundary country and a friend  of deceased; Mr. Chas. J. Me.Arthiir,  also a former resident of Silver Bow  county and a friend of 20 years standing, and Mr. Win. Hurley/another old  friend.  I The above particulars will serve to  jmpress the relations and friends ol  "the late Air. Sullivan that though in  what is to them a foreign land, there  were not wanting those tokens ol  respect to one, wiio, notwithstanding  that lie was a comparative stranger in  the Boundary district had the reputation of being a man who had well done  his part in his all too brief span of life.  It may be of interest to our readers to  learn that the three sisters of deceased  survive him, these being Mesdamcs  Jerry Murphy, Joe Hogan and  O'Neill, all still residents of Butte, to  whom with all others who have this  loss to mourn, the Pioneer extends its  condolence and sincere sympathy in  their sad bereavement.  einselves of the privilege of voting at | CAPITAL   -     -  theinipendingdoiuinion election.

Considerable interest is being taken  along the boundary in the opening of  the north half of the Colville Indian  reservation to which settlement the  territory extends from the Columbia  to the Okanagan river. The C. 1'. R.  is likely to reap a harvest from the  opening as its line to Midway runs  within 30 miles of the heart of the  reservation and is the closest rail connection by 50 miles.  The Nelson Tribune states that Mr.  F. \V. Peters, assistant general lreight  agent, has returned from a trip over  the reservation, made with a view to  sizing up the situation and determining  on the volume of business in prospect.  In referring to the reservation Mr.  1'eters is reported to have said: ''I do  not look for as.great a rush into the  reservation as Was anticipated. While  there are many fine valleys the country  is not so suitable for farming as was  reported, a dearth of water being one  of the most serious drawbacks. There  does not seem to be any excitement,  and.while a large number of people  will undoubtedly go in, the rush will  be nothing like the Oklahoma or similar affairs. Personally,I was more interested in the mining outlook. Tlie  country is more like the Republic district, heavy r'-lling prairie rather than  rock hills, and mining development  will necessitate a large amount of sinking to reach the values. There are a  number of properties working and the  owners are very hopeful. I'he ore is  free-milling and is said to carry excellent values."

Indeed, it  seems as if the press was gradually  drifting in the direction of independence. This may be accounted for by  the fact that neither the papers nor  the people arc any longer content to  have their politics made for them by a  few self-seeking politicians whose only  aim is to secure preferment and the  spoils of office.

The following facts about Phoenix tell the story of what capital has already accomplished in the chief  miniti'r camp of the Boundary. There are yet many promising prospects well worthy of business like  exploitation.  Phoenix itself and the camps to which it i.s the nearest banking and business  point, are now shipping 3,500 tons of gold-copper ore per week, or I 32,500 tons  per year.  The Knob Hill and Old Ironsides, situated in the very heart of the town, are  alone shipping 300 tons daily, or 2,100 tons per week.  The B. C. mine is shipping 150 tons daily, or over 1,000 tons \vceklj\  Other properties, such as the Golden Crown, Winnipeg, Athelstau, etc., are  shipping not less than 50 tons per day, or 350 tons per week.  The ore shipments from Phoenix alone far exceed the combined output of  all  mining camps of British Columbia, outside of Rossland.  Yet Phoenix i.s only in its earliest infancy.
