The   secretary,  R. K. McCammon, read a communication from A. S.   Hood,   in   which  that  g-entleman,   who  has   severed  his   connection   with   Phoenix,   tendered his  resignation  as  president.  The  resignation   was accepted and  P. J. Cook was unanimously chosen  to fill   the  vacancy.     With   the  exception   of    a   few   slight   changes  the   entire   personel   of   tbe   active  staff  were   re-elected.      A   vote   of  confidence   in   the  Dominion  member, Hon. Martin   Burrell,   and  the  Provincial    representative,     Ernest  Miller, was also part of the business  transacted.    The "following are the  names   of  the   officers for   the new  term: Pres., P. J. Cook; vice-pres.,  Wm.    Prendergast;   sec-treasurer,  R. K. -McCammon;  executive council, Messrs. Jas. Marshall, W. Humphreys,  John   Robinson,   Jos.   Dar-  raugh, John Pierce, Geo. Mattocks,  Geo. Vichary,   Tony Turano,   Martin Zucco,   Fred.   C. Graham,   Gordon Thompson and  A.   Gustaffson.  Another meeting will be  called during course of the coming month.  Phoenix Ski Club  The   Phoenix   Ski   club   has   not  lost much time in getting  into  harness, and for several clays have been  out practicing on   their  course  near  the Central  hotel.-   On  Sunday the  club made the  initial run of the-season going   as far as   Hartford junction.     Although   there   has been, no  meeting* as yet,   we understand that  most, if not all, of the older experts  .are still in the camp, and until other,  arrangements    are     completed   the  club will carry out  their training on  on   the   above mentioned  slope and  on  the  regular   ski   course   outside  the town.  Pythians' Entertain  The  members of Phoenix Lodge,  Knights   of   Phythias,   held one   of  their newly-instituted   monthly "at  homes"   on   Monday  evening,   and  once more  confirmed  their old-time  reputation   for social hospitality  in  Phoenix.       The   affair  commenced  with a whist drive, which was keenly   contested,   the judges  awarding  the trophies* to   Mrs.   Geo.   Barnes  and    Mr.   P.   Welkins, while   Miss  Stein, a visitor  from   Montana, and  A. B. Cook,   were  the  recipients of  consolation prizes.      Dancing occupied the attention for the rest of the  evening, being interrupted  at  midnight  by   the  call   to   supper, after  which the dance was  lesumed until  1 30  a.m.,   when    the   proceedings  were  brought to a   reluctant close.  F. Werner officiated  at the piano,  his excellent  music  being strongly  supported by Chas.   McKay, whose  ability as a violin executant has few  superiors  among  the many fine orchestras    of southern   and   central  British   Columbia.      The   members  are   also   indebted   to   Mrs.  W.   S.  Cook for her services at  the piano  at intervals during the evening.

C.   .Columbia   company's  smelter   treated   15,079 tons of ore  mining in the Boundary since its inception in 1862, appears in Memoir  21, "The Geology and Ore Deposits  of Phoenix," by O. E. LeRoy of the  Canadian Department of Mines":  The earliest known mining operations in the   Boundary district  were  conducted in 1862 when  portions of  the   bed   of   Boundary   creek    were  worked  for  placer  gold.     Between  1862   and   1891-little   interest   was  taken in this district and few claims-  were   staked.      In    1890   the   discoveries of gold-copper   ore   bodies  at   Rossland   stimulated   propecting  over   extensive   areas    in    southern  British Columbia, and in 1891 prospecting was   actively   carried  on   in  Greenwood,    at    which    time    the  Mother   Lode,   Crown    Silver   and  Sunset   were   staked.      During' the  summer of that year the prospectors  crossed to the present siLe of  Phoenix,   and   the   first   discovery    was  made by Henry While   who   staked  the Knob Hill claim  on  July 15, on  an ore-cropping near the south end  of the present "glory hole" on  that  claim.  White's partner, Matthew Hotter,  located Old Ironsides, which adjoins  Knob Hill, and named both   claims,  the former after   a   gun   boat which  figured ,in   the   Civil   "War    of  United States, and   the - latter, after  Nob  Hill, a   residential   quarter   of  San   Francisco.  During 'iHe'season "6fT89T," fn'osf  of the ground which has been found  to contain valuable ore bodies was  located. The Stemwinder was  staked by James Attwood and James  Schoileld   about  July   25,   and   the  ble surface work was done in trench  ing and sinking shallow   pits on the  outcrops of  the several ore   bodies.  The    prospectors,    however,     were  much   discouraged    when     it   was  found that the values in'gold, silver  and copper were so   low, and owing  to this,   many   claims   were allowed  to lapse   which  were afterwards relocated by. others'.     A renewed   activity was the outcome   of the discovery that the ores were practically  self-fluxing,   which   combined   with  the apparently enormous size of the  deposits', began   to attract the capi. |  tal   necessary   for   proper    development.      It   was   recognized    at   an  early\period   that   it  was   no poor  man's, camp,    and     that     a    large  amount of. time and capital must be  expended-    in    developing    the    ore  bodies, ai/d  in the building of smelters, before  the properties could be  placed on a paying basis.  In 1896 the Miner-Graves syndicate commenced development work  on the Old Ironsides-Knob hill ore  body; and preparations 'were made  later on for, the building  of a smelt-  sis   that   the   result   was   brought  about by solutions which   traversed  the limestone in   lateral and lateral  descending   directions.      Although  the  district  generally has in times  past   received    attention    from   the  geologist,    the  recent  contribution  of Mr. Le   Roy, dealing   as  it does  with this  particular part, is  one  of  special interest   and  no doubt   will  be    an   immense   assistance   when  other   deposits   similar   to   Phoenix  shall   engage   the   attention  of  the  mining operator.    The author lays  considerable  emphasis on the work  accomplished  by the diamond  drill,  and   evidently considers  its   intelligent use essential for the successful  exploitation of Boundary ore bodies  The    topographical    work    was   in  charge   of W.   H.   Boyd, while  the  geological   work,    both   areal   and  economic,   was    in   charge   of  Mr.  Le Roy,   assisted  by C.   W. Drys-  dale.  eiry   at Grand   Forks.   ' By purchase  arjd consolidation the-ori  ore. The freight charge on a ton of  bullion from Grand Forks to the refinery in New Jersey is $14, and  from Hidden Creek only $12. It is  figured, therefore, that Hidden ,i  Creek copper output will not cost  more than eight to eight and a half .  cents a pound.  There  i.s  good  reason to expect'  that Granby will gradually build up  a very large and profitable   custom  smelting business at Hidden Creek. '.  The managements of several mines  in   the    vicinity   have   approached  Granby  officials   on   this matter already.    Granby   has   made a  conspicuous success in this department,  its expenses per ton of ore   smelted  at Grand Forks being approximately  the lowest maintained  anywhere  in  the world.  Undoubtedly millions of tons more  ore will be developed in its property  at Phoenix; but there is no occasion  for extensive exploratory work there,  at present, there being seven or  eight year's ore supply blocked out  now. Viewed from every standpoint, therefore, Granby is in a very  strong position, and its future outlook is most promising. It is not  surprising that its stock is advancing steadily. I figure that it is  worth   at   least   twice   its   present  price.   -m.   Basket Ball  The Granby Consolidated  Granby is not being conducted as  a mining company simply, in the  older acceptance of the term, says  Geo. L. Walker, in the Boston Commercial. It is rather a mining and  smelting enterprise. From $50,000  to $150,000 annually is expended by  the company on exploratory work  with a 200-mile radius of its smelter.  If   a   promising   property   is   found  which can be had on favorable terms I'    A   meeting   was   held   this   week  it is optioned and diamond drilled or 1 with the "object of ascertaining "trie.  other   exploratory   work   done.

Joseph Taylor and Stephen Mangott  who located the Brooklyn on July  31. A few days later Robert Deng-  ler and William Douglas located the  North Star (now the Idaho), and  about the same time George Rum-'  berger discovered the ground at  present covered by the Snowshoe,  Rawhide and Monarch. He, with  Taylor and Mangott, staked three  claims (600 x 1,500), on which considerable surface work was done,  but the assessments were never recorded and the claims were allowed  to lapse. The War Eagle was located by Dengler and Douglas during the latter part of August.  In 1891, when the first locations  were made, the Mining Act of British  Columbia permitted the size of a  claim to be 600 by 1,500 feet, with  extra lateral rights. In 1892 this  Act was repealed and the size of the  claims changed to 1,500 by 1,500  feet with vertical side lines*. At this  time the base of supplies was Marcus, in the" State of Washington,  about 75 miles distant. The pack  trail followed the valley of the Kettle  river, connecting with the Dewdney  trail at Grand Forks, from which a  branch trail i.s built into Phoenix.  In 1893, Thomas Humphrey and  James Keightlylocated the Monarch;  Robert Dengler, D. Mclnnes and  William Gibbs the Rawhide; Dengler and Gibbs the, Snowshoe; and  Joseph Metu the Gold Drop.  In 1894, the North Star was relocated by John Meyer and George  Rumberger as the Idaho, and the  Red Cloud was relocated as the  Standard fraction by Thomas Johnston. The Victoria was staked on  August 1 by John Stephens and the  Aetna on August 25 by George  Rumberger.

Accompanying* the report, which is the result of some  months' field work by O. E. LeRoy  of the geological branch of the  Dominion Department of Mines,  are a couple of topographical and  geological maps of the camp, while  the copy contains, besides photographic views, a number of drawings descriptive of the rocks of this  particular locality, a feature of the  memoir of considerable value to the  student aud mining engineer, and  possibly, the prospector. The compiler acknowledges his indebtedness  to the management of local mines for  generous assistance, and especially  mentions A. B. VV. Hodges, O. B.  Smith, lun., and C. M. Campbell  for their helpful criticism during the  progress of the field work.  A particularly interesting feature  of tbe notes is a short and concise  history of Boundary mining, with  the names of early locators nnd even  the origin of the names of claims,  which in those days were little  thought of, but are now regarded  as among the world's chief suurcas  of copper supply. On page 21,  Mr. Le Roy outlines his theory as  to the origin of the deposition of  local ore, and advances the hypothe-1  A Fall Suit  Should not only  be attractive in  design,   but   it  should   Fit  per  fectly   and    be  made faultlessly.

Friction on the hemorrhoid veins  that are swollen, inflamed and goi ged  with blood, is what causes the teirible  pain and stinging and smarting of  piles. Zam-Buk applied at night will  be found to give case before morning.  Thousands of persons have proved this.  Why not be guided by the experience  of otheis?  Mr. Thomas Peaison, of Prince  Albert, Sask., writes: "I must thank  you for the benefit I have received  from Zain-Buk. Last summer 1 suf-  teied gieatly from piles. T started to  use Zam-Buk and found it gave me  relief, so I continued it, and after using three or four boxes I am pleased  to sav it has effected a complete cuiu."  Mr. G. A. Dufiesne, 183-185 St;  Joseph-street, St. Roch, Quebec, P.Q.,  wt ites: "I can highly recommend Zain-  Buk to every one who biiffeis fiom  piles."

I was tiled ot tiying various remedies, when I heaid oi Zam-  Buk, and thought us a last lesomce [  would give this balm atual. Aflei a  \ cry. short time Zum-Buk effected a  complete cure."

The   present situation for  Britain  is   perhaps the  most perilous  of all  the nations interested, by  reason of  the fact that out of the one hundred  and   sijtty   million   who, daily   turn  their faces  towards   Mecca,   no less  than two thirds   of that number are  subjects   of   the   British   King,   but  nevertheless   look   upon   the Sultan  as the head of their faith, the Caliph  J|  of Islam.   Sixty million of this number are   in India,   ten   million  are in  Egypt,   and perhaps  fifteen  million  African Swahilis, the latter of which  are reputed the finest fighters among  the   Empire's  colored  troops.     Under these circumstances,  "unspeak- j  able"   as   the   .Turk   has   been,    no j  wonder   need' ' be     expressed     if  a'  fleet  of Albion   once   more   threads;  its   way     through   the   Dardenelles  and   clears  for. action   in   the Black j  Sea.

Accord-1  ing to   the   press   reports   of the oc-.J  eurrencc,   the   minister   in question, i  had   just   terminated   a  particularly;  forceful discourse, in   which   he had I  laid   bare  the   shortcomings   of  his j  hearers and pointed out the penally.

The occasion was the annual harvest  thanksgiving, the altar being decoi-  ated with fruit and vegetables, the  gift of Percy Clark of Grand Forks.
