Devoted to the Interests ofthe Boundary Mining District  FOURTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX,-B.C., SATURDAY, OCTOBER \9,  1912  THE CONSOLIDATED CO.  ON DIVIDEND LIST  Net Profits for Year, $301,345-  Annual Meeting- Changed to  3rd Tuesday in Dec.  A dividend of four per cent, payable on October 17th to shareholders  of record was declared at the annual  meeting ofthe Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Co.* of Canada, Ltd.,  held at-Toronto, on Oct. 11.  President W. D. Matthews stated  expressly that the dividend was- not  fon-any stated   period.     Me   further  announced that the directors had decided to not   at   present   adopt   any  permanent policy in regard   to  dividends, 'but hereafter they would declare them only as  they considered  the earnihg-s'warranted.    The president outlined   tlie   troubles   of   the  company   during   the    past    year,-  which    they   had   successfully   met,  and said that the company was in a  better position than it ever was before.     He recalled  his advice to the  shareholders   last year not  to  dispose   of  their  stock,  and   repeated  that advice.  The statement showedai��l profits  for the year of $310,345, compared  with $202,278 the previous year.  The indebtedness to the bank was  reduced by $240,212.  A resiiltion was carried changing  the fiscal year to end September  30th,' and tbe date of the annual  meeting to the third Tuesday in December. The former directors were  re-elected. The meeting passed off  without any questions by shareholders, who seemed satisfied with  reports.  Our Federal Cabinet Minister  After an absence in the capital of  nearly  a year, the Dominion  Mini-  ter    of  Agriculture",   Hon.    Martin  Burrell, arrived in his home town of  Grand Forks, last  week.     The distinguished   representative, who was  accompanied      by      Mrs.     Burrell,  were among  the visiting  vice-regal  party and' escorted   them through a  portion   of   his   large   constituency.  The minister expressed   his pleasure  at being in the Forks  again and regretted  the short   time   at his  disposal.     Answering a query by a representative   of  the   Gazette   as   to  the probable  duration   of the forthcoming  session   of  Parliament,   the  minister replied that it was impossible to tell.     "We expect to take up  the   naval   policy    immediately   the  House assembles.      We have every  confidence that the  country will endorse the stftnd   taken  by   the government, and  further, I see   no reason   for. this   phase   being   made  a  party    matter,   whatever   difference  may exist  in regard  to  the lines on  which a  permanent  policy  of naval  defence   should   be framed."     Mr.  Burrell left for Ottawa on Friday.  - LocaL_.,nmH-ijds -who .have been  anxiously .watching for the first  light fall of snow, had their hopes  realized on Friday. Several parties  have aleady been made up and  next week the smell of fried venison  steak will be in evidence in many of  the hotel kitchens of Phoenix.  Have You a Vote?  .Registration on the provincial  voters' list must be made before  October 31st, or the names cannot  be placed on the list before next  May. Those registering before the  end of this month will become entitled to the franchise immediately  after the sitting of the Court of Revision in November. All male  British subjects, who have-reached  the age of 21 years and 'resident in  the province for six months prior to  Oct. 31 are eligible for the list. In  view of tbe possibility of an early  appeal to the country on the momentous question of.Canada's share  in the naval defence of the Empire,  it behoves all eligible British'subjects to take the necessary steps to  have their names on this list. Application forms may be obtained  from R". K. McCammon or  Hartley, city clerk.  7?  -?  '^1  UMBER  B. C. Mining  Frank F. Farrell and Blanche Edwards appearing with "The Missouri Girl'  the Phoenix Opera House; on TUESDAY, Oct. 22  at  Presbyterian Church  The dedicatory services in connection with the opening of the  new Presbyterian church took place  on Sunday last, when the Rev. Dr.  Ferguson, supt. of western Presbyterian missions, preached at both  morning and evening services.  At the first   service in   the day there  The B. C. Copper Co. will put on  another diamond drill, making six  in all, on their properties at Voigt  camp.���Similkameen Star.  A find of very rich ore has been  made in the Curlew, in the South  Belt, owned by Messrs. Oliver and  Forteath. A recent assay of its ore  shows that it goes $177.75 to the  ton. The values are as follows:  Gold, $4; silver, $134.75; lead, $39.  The ledge i.s six inches in width, and  is on the upper end of the claim.  The find was made in a tunnel at a  point about ten feet below the surface.���Rossland Miner.  Samuel Coulter is making a shipment of 25   tons  of high-grade ore  extracted from the Lily May portion  ofthe Richmond Consolidated Mines'  holdings.    The  ore   is   of   a   high  grade, the assays running from $40  up to $150 to the ton.     The   higher  assays   show   that   it   carries   200  ounces in   silver, 36  per  cent lead  and $6   in   gold   to   the ton.     The  ledge is about four feet wide, with a  paysteak of solid ore that runs from  six to fifteen inches.���Miner.  Laird Brothers, the well-known  shipbuilders of Birkenhead, England, have had a representative in  the Similkameen recently who has  purchased the "Lost Horse" claim  and some others on Copper Moun*-*  tain, the consideration not being  The   Lost   Horse claim  that gives promise of tbe  camp becoming more widely famed than tbe  first locators imagined.   Louis creek  forty-two miles north   of this  city,  empties  into the North Thompson  river, and for seven   miles  from its  mouth every inch  on  both sides is  staked out in mining claims.  Several  of the claim owners, who  are   married, are putting up houses and  establishing    their    families   on   the  ground, so  that the camp is taking  on an air of permanency.    There  i.s  no  question   about  the gold being  there.    The discovery claim  is considered   a   bonanza, and   its   owner  declares $20 an hour is   obtainable.  One, miner, took  out   $17   in   three  hours,   according  to  a  responsible  eye witness of the  sluicing.    Gold  Commissioner Pearse paid a visit to  the camp last week and is very optimistic  over  its future.    It is  an  easy   creek   to   work,  and   as   the  water is now falling rapidly it is expected that good results will be obtained before winter sets in.

The    scene,  Rev.

On   Monday   evening the   ladies'  aid of the Presbyterian church gave  an   "At   Home"   in   honor    of  the  church  opening,   and entertained   a  number   of   friends,    including   the  Rev. M.   D. McKee   and   Mrs.   Mc-  Kec of Grand   Forks  and   Dr. Fergusson, of Calgary.     Games  and  a  musical progiam  furnished a  pleasant evening's enjoyment for old and  young    alike,    while    in    addition,  short   encouraging    speeches   were  delivered by   the   visiting ministers.  The      Rev.    J.   J.    Nixon    of   the  Methodist  church, also spoke,   and  conveyed   tlie    best   wishes   of-his  congregation for  the success  ot the  new church in   Fhoenix.     The  doctor in the  course  of. a  few remarks  drew attention to   the large number  of those who  hailed  from Caledonia  and   humorously  advised   them   not  to forget that important fact. ���   Mrs.  R.  Lindsay  delighted  the   company  with   a couple  of songs, including a  duet  with   R.   K.  McCammon,   the  contralto   of   the   former    blending  perfectly  with   tlie   fine  baritone of  the  latter.     Little  Rubina   Prencler-  gast   also  contributed   a   couple   ol  recitations, and  greatly amused her  audience   by her perfectly composed  mannerisms.     Dr. Ferguson proved  a     sympathetic     accompanist     and  D.   VV.    McKenzie    of   the   church  management    board,   occupied   the  wood, apprising them of the forma  tion of a Phoem'x team for 1912-13.  The following are the names of the  officers for the ensuing term: Hon.  president, O. B. Smith, jun.; hon.  vice, presidents, Dr. W. H. Dickson, J^ W. Thompson and D. J.

The New Rink  The building committee who were  intrusted with operations in connection with the projected exhibition  building and skating rink, have not  lost much time in 'commencing  serious work. The contract for  grading the site is in the hands of  D. L. McElroy and Gust Johnson,  who for the past few days have had  four teams with scrapers levelling  the ground, and who confidently  expect, to finish their task by today,  Saturday. Actual building operations will no doubt be in full swing  about the latter part of next week,  two cars of lumber and one of  cement being now on the way from  local points.  In View of the misstatements appearing in the columns of our contemporaries over the propriety of  the council's action in connection  with the above projected structure,  we might state that the council did  not "donate" the sum o( $1000. ���  They did, however, "invest" the,  sum mentioned, and, further, there j  is no possible doubt but that a lair:  rate of interest will be paid on the  [amount  h*  Should not only  be attractive in  desip-n, but it  should  Fit per-  iH.l.i *,UN '*  fectly   and   be  . ii  ��^mmmm"*���"����������-~  made faultlessly.

"An   examination   of  this literature," .says a writer to the  London   Times,   "proves   that   the  present    so-called   suffrage    movement  is   deeply  involved in   an unnatural and indecent agitation quite  distinct from purely political aims."  A perusal of the  titles of some  of  thes>e works   will  afford  something  of a shock   to   our   readers   of  the  gentler sex, while 'mere man'  may  be able to discern a great  light and  form  some  conception   of  the perverted and  twisted  nature  of these  so-called world reformers:   The following   aie the   titles   of  the   most  widely    read    'campaign     works":  "Sex War and Woman's Suffrage,"  "Feminism,"    "The   Oscar   Wilde  Calendar:   A   Quotation   for   Every  Day in   the  Year,"   "The   Immoral  Effects   of   Ignorance in Sex Relations," "Woman,   A Few Shrieks,"  "Problems of Sex,"   "God's Word  to Woman: A Woman's Catechism,"  "The Bar of Isis,"  "A Holy War,!'  "The Relation ofthe Sexes,"   "The  Awakening of Women."  gone issue will prove  as ineffectual  as the historic attempt of a certain  king to  dictate the rise and fall of  the tide.     The object of Sir Wilfred  in attempting to resurrect the issue  of reciprocity is,  to say the least, a  dishonorable  one, and suspiciously  resembles that   awcient   subterfuge  of    dragging     the     red     herring,  across the trail.     However,  in this  case the hounds are about used to.  the old dodge,  and when  the time:  arrives for the people of Canada to  pronounce on the new naval policy  no amount  of red   herring  will  be:  able to divert them^from the main  issue.  Intense interest was manifested;  in the result of the Macdonald election, chiefly by reason of the fact  that a number of Alberta and Saskatchewan members had invaded  the field, and by speech and canvass  gave prominence to the question of  reciprocity The poll even exceeded jn numbers that of the general  election, and, under the circumstances, if anything could possibly  disprove the theory that a change in  in public opinion had taken place  since 1911, the result of the eleci  tion at ^Macdonald should supply  a reatfly 'and effective answer to the  contra/y^  Thp invasion of the constituency  by the Saskatchewan members was  particularly distasteful to the Mani-  tobans who were outspoken in their  resentment, in view of the well-  known and established fact that the  legislature of Saskatchewan as at  present constituted is regarded as  the most corrupt political machine  in the Dominion, if not in the  Empire.  649  EVERY part of every  Fit-Reform Suit is  tailored by ari artist ��� a  specialist���on this part of  the workmanship.

Therefore woman's position  in the  scale   of life   is the  most exalted    one,"    "Science    has   abundantly proved that the male element  was a  superfluity,   a waste product  of nature."     "All facts point to the  feminine as the primary and fundamental basis of existence."   "Life is  feminine," and   so on ad  nauseum.  The   writer goes   on   to say that at  a suffrage   meeting held  near London  the   speaker   in   her  effort   to  prove   a   certain    point   elaborated  with such  detail,   that the reporters  were unable  to  publish  it.     An extract   from   one   indescribable   suffrage tract which had   a   large sale  among   the women, was to   the effect   that   "man-made  social  order  had its   foundations   laid   in   ruined  souls   and   bodies;"  "monogamous  marriage is  monotonous," "morals  are   based   as much   on   convention  as on principle."    The   writer concludes with  the  statement  that the  literature above mentioned is being  sold to old and young  alike.     It is  this literature  which has caused its  readers to confound hammers with  argument     and     martyrdum    with  suicide,  d. l.

MOVING MACHINERY OUR SPECIALTY  Another Facer for Reciprocity  The recent overwhelming defeat  of the Liberal candidate for Macdonald, Manitoba, ought to put a  quietus on the movement for reciprocity, and convince the Liberal  chieftain that any further action  towards    reviving   that   dead   and  ported grain, and that the United  States is aclose second, while next  to no,ne is grown at home. As a  matter of .fact, the greatest individual supply is the home-grown crop,  and after this comes India, barely  ahead of the United States, with  Canada third and Australia and Argentina not very far behind.  Perjhaps the most remarkable  thing^about these figures is that the  honie-growp supply has risen slightly on an average for the last septennial period, and that while there  has been a small increase in the  Canadian imports and a large increase in the Indian and Australian  imports, there has been a correspondingly large decrease in the imports of the United States, the actual figures being as follows:  1911 1907  United Kingdom 20.7 19.1  Australia 10.3 7.5  Canada 13.4 13.1  India 14.3 10.5  Other British Colonies.  0.5 0.3  Argentina 10.5 14.8  Roumania    1.5 1.1  Russia    12.8 11.6  United States 14.2 19.4  Other countries    1.8 2.6  If Tired of Wood, try Princeton Coal  Butter, Eggs, etc.  CASCADE  FANCY BUTTER, 45C. per lb.

Z am very pleased to express my high opinion of your  preparation- Some time ago I contracted a very bad cold,  which settled on my lungs and bronchial tubes- I almost  lost my voice, was constantly coughing, and experienced  considerable pain.  A friend offered me a box of Peps and I tried them. I  was very much pleased with their almost instant action.  They seemed to go direct to the sore places, stopped the  coughing, and made my breathing easier. I continued their  use for a short time, and they completely cured my cold-  Since then, on one or two occasions, when I have contracted  a bad cold, I have used them, and each time the result has  been equally satisfactory.  My wife has had an experience somewhat similar, and  although neither of us believes in very much medicine-taking, we regard Peps in a class by themselves, and such a  handy effective remedy, that we always keep a supply in  the house.  (Signed) D. DERBYSHIRE,  Senator.  Brockville, Ont.  Peps are small pastilles containing certain medicinal ingredients, which  when placed upon the tongue immediately turn into vapor, and are breathed  down the air passages to the lungs. On their journey thoy feoothe the inflamed and irritated membranes of tbe bronchial tubes, the delicate walls of  the air passages, and finally enter and carry relief and healing to the capillaries aud tiny air sacs in the lungs.  In a word, while no liquid or solid can pet to the lungs and air passages.  Peps fumes get there direct; and at once commence their work of healing.
