It was  the first celebration ot any kind ever  held in the payroll city, and it was  taken hold of with a vim by the citizens as well as the labor organizations  generally. Preparations had lieen  made for many uutol-town people to  enjoy the programme, and they were  here in large nnmlwrv. The special  tiain brought in several coaches from  Grand r'ork��, Cascade, Eholt and  other places, it being estimated that  250 came from Grand Foiks alone.  A single coach was run to Greenwood  to accommodate those who wished to  visit that place. *  All dav Sunday the men who had  been working on the streets and sidewalks of the city were at work putting  on the finishing touches as far as the)  could be made iu the short lime ai  their disj>osal. ' Monday was an ideal  day for a celebration. The .sun did  not show itself till some lime in the  alternoon, and the weather was delightful���could hardly have been" improved  upon if made to order.  The programme, although somewhat  lengthy,, was carried o. I .is arranged,  and the usual tedious wans were conspicuous by their absence. A gieat  deal of interest was maniiested 111 the  rock drilling contests, which weie witnessed by the multitudes. The hoise  rates also had many devotees and the  small sports - weic well attended.  Every committee h.i . done its woik  well, and complaints were lew and fai  between.  It was 9:15 when the paiade began  to form at Miiuis' Union hall, on  lower 'Doni'mioiravenueV' 'All"of the  labor organizations in the city were in  line, headed-by the Phoenix Brass  Band, with P.'J. Holohan ns maishall,  with several assistants. ���; The line 01  march was up Dominion avenue to  Phoenix street, thence to Old lion  sides avenue 10 the C I'. R. depot,  where the special excursion tiain was  met. 'I he line then lefoiined and  marched down Knob Hill , avenue to  the Dominion Copper Co.'s flat, where  the drilling contests were lo start the  .sports of. the'day.  Retails of Drilling Contests  There was but one entry in the  lenior event lor rock drilling, but as  the juniors would take first money ii  they beat the seniors the latter put in  their best licks. The to'ek was a very  hard giauite. Ross and McLeod,  weighing ig\l4 and 187 respect'uely,  diilled 43 inches in the allotted 15  minutes with; ��,-8tb steel.  In the jdnior event there were four  teams entered.'���.The first to do business was Durham and Tallent, of the  I*.. C. mine, weighing 169 and 158,  who drilled 30^ inches; then came  I'orrest and MeKinley, weighing 158  and 143, who drilled 31 9-16 inches;  Riley and McLeod, of Republic, wei^h  ing 146 and 163, drilled 33^6 inches;  aiid Henderson and Cox, of the Brooklyn mine,. weighing 167 and 173, took  (list niorieyiby drilling 36^ inches.  In the boys' lightweight event, Gui-  dotti and Demuth, of Rossland, drilled  12 $4 inches and got: first piize, the  second goirig to Lowery and Morse, of  Republic,-who drilled uffj in the  given time of ten minutes.  In the boys'heavyweight class Hae-  Ikett   and   Ross,  of  Phoenix,   drilled  91^ incheit, and Furlong and  Marti. 1,  of Republic,   drilled 14^' inches,   the  iatter getting first money.  Single Handed Drilling Contest  The single hand, drilling contest  was gotten up at a lat-j.'moment, and  was due largely to the efToits ol Judge  Williams, 'who interested himself in  the matter.: -There was a good den I ol  interest in'the outcome, as sonic extra  good men were entered. The contest  was held about 6 p. hi., in front of tlie  Brooklyn hotel, and there were four  entries. Eric Stevenson, foreman of  the Brooklyn mine, took first money  with a hole"i'3J( inches deep, which  he made in the lim- given, ten minutes.  Mive Hums was next on the ���list,  making 12^ inches in the same time.  Pat Dillon drilled 10 ^ inches. Chas.  Sanberg drilled 73,$ in a little over  eight minutes, when his drill broke.

While this is an old siory to Phoenicians, it wasol great interest to sirangeis,  especially when it took place in one ot  the gie.uest mines in Biiiisli Columbia.

McKinley was shot this afternoon on the Pan American Exposition  grounds at Buffalo, while he was holding  a   icception   neai   the Temple ol  Music.  'His   assailant  was a  well dressed  while -ihaking hands with the president. One shot took effect in the  breast and one in the almdmen. The  wounds will likely piove fatal. He  was removed to the official build  ing, where one ball was extracted from  near the bieast bone. He is now conscious, and resting easily.  '' The murderer was Fred Neiman,  from Deuoit. and is now under arrest  at the |X)iice station.  Re-clpt ��f News ii Pboeo'x.  When the news of President McKinley being shot was received in  Phoenix today, a little after noon, it  cieated the most profound sensation  all ovei ihe city. "In a short time  eveiy lestdent was aware of the  fatality that had befallen the president  of the United States The telephone  in   the   Pioneer   office was constantly  - - ^ ringing, ui(|uuei.s wishing to  hear the  man, -who fiied two shots   point blank, latest to be had trom Buffalo.

Contractors on the V., \r. and E.,  and Grand porks and Republic1 railway . still complain of a scarcity of  laborers. Chief Engineer Kennedy of  the former, is quoted as saying that  his road could use five times as many,  men., as 1 are now at; work. It is also  said . that there is absolutely.'no truth  in 'the report that the building of the  branch to Phoenix will- be postponed,  but that it will be constructed as'soon  as laborers can be had.  Broke Connecting Rod. '  Last Saturday's incoming Boundary  train met with a mishap near the high  Porcupine ceek bridge. The locomotive struck a rock and broke the  connecting rod, but managed to reach  Grand Porks. A locomotive was sent  trom Eholt to get the train up the hill,  but endless delays ensued, and the  Phoenix cars were brought' up on a  23 car ore train with- the Shay engine,  leaching Phoenix about 4 o'clock Sunday morning. Tliei'e were  ptissengeis lor Phoenix.  manded  him   to open the sale.    This  - 1  was promptly done, and<abou*. $500  in cash, besides some checks, which  were discarded, was secured. Diamonds,  jewelry and watches were readily contributed by the frightened people, and  it is said that the total taken by them  footsuip to over $2,060 in value.  Before backing out of ihe door aud  decamping;in the:'darkness,, the robbers regaled/themselves \ with chain-;  pagiie, beer, whiskey and) cigars, and.  warned those" present not to attempt1  to follow them. A stranger coming!  in five,minutes; later found the'-nim:;'  men with their handsjhigh in the air,1.  ihe man with   the  glass  ot   beer   in-,  eluded.  ' An alarm was at once given and the  police at Greenwood, Phoenix and  Grand Forks being warned by telephone that night. Unfortunately no  description of the robbers could he  given by the victims. It was all done  quickly, and the men were not recognized. The provincial police have  been working on the case,-'but, so far  have not even been able to get a clue.  about 50 - The robbers are probably far over inlo  the United Stales by this time.  I'he> Snowshoe people :ue foitunate  in having a large body ol decomposed  01 e lying on ihe surtaie ol the claim,  winch gives very satisfactory values,  lhis body is It on? 300 to 500 teet in  width andx about 200 feet in length,  with a depth of 5 /to 8 feet. The assay values.are said to .run from $10 to  $30 per ton iu gold and copper.  Figuring conservatively, say on a  basis of 300 feet long, 200 feet wide  land five feet deep, this body is expected to \ield at least'60,000 tons.  Again estimating conservatively as to  values, on a basis of $10 per ton, this  ore will yield $500,000. If the co.st  of mining, transportation and smelting  is, say $5 per ton���another liberal estimate���this surface ore will give a  profit of $150,000 to the Snowshoe  Gold and Copper Mines, Ltd. This  should make a satisfactory showing to  the shareholders of this company,  which has just started in business.  In   the   meantime,   of couise,   the  ���egtilar development work on the prop-  And Will Meet Cooitardle Smith for $530  �� Side.  One of the chief events ol Labol,  Day to a large number ot persons was  the glove contest that tnuk plate in  the evening ��n the old skating link be  tween Dal. Hawkins, champion light*  weight of the Pacific coast, and Maititi  Denny, < hainpion lightweight of Australia. l,o\ers of the manly an of  selt defense tcom all ovei the I5oiiii�� <  aiy were ntesent to witness the <oi.-  test.        v  The couicst began about 10:30  o'clock, Hawkins having Danny Dean,  'tommy Hognn and K. Punk behind  him, while Denny was seconded by  Harold Smith and Pied Claik. The  contest was for $500 a side. ' The iet-  eree was David Uxley.  Referee Oxley started the men off  in good shape after having warned  them. The-first round wus tame; both  men fiddling a good ileal and hardly a  blow being struck. In the second  they mixed up a little, seemingly gelling  watmed up a bifT The third, round  was lively, and honors up to tr,is stage  were even. -In the fourth round Hawkins started in to make things hot and  he chased his man all over., the ring.  Denny al this time seemed distressed,  and ac;"ed on .the., defensive, being  knocked down once and taking the  eight seconds to get up. In the fifth  round Hawkins rushed his man ana  knocked him down four times, each  time Denny taking the ful> time limit  to recover. Denny was plainly groggy  and it was seen that he could not lipid  out ahotlier round. Tbje gong .s^vetjl  him from a knockout. �����- jit took Haw>  kins just two minutes in tbe sixth  round to put Denny out, Denny being  cleanly put out by a right-hander on  jaw.  Hawkins, who was in the pink of  condition, had been training heie foi  a week or more, and seemed to have  the best of the contest from the beginning. On the other hand, Denny whfl  had been training in Grand Forks,  had not seemingly allowed ioi the difference in the altitude of the two places,  and was thus imt at somewhat ot a  disadvantage.  Hawking ve. Coolfardle Smith.  This week another contest has been  arranged foi, to take place between  Coolgardie Smith and Hawkins at  Grand'Forks.on the -2 ist inst��?,Some-  of the Grqnd Folks sports who saw  Smith here and' also' saw Hawkins,  were Anxious to arrange a match, and  on Wednesday the articles were signed  for a iwenty-noruid contest with five-  ounce gloves for $500 a side. It will  take place Wftder the .ms^ices oj the  Giand Forks Atheletic Association, ot  which L. A. Mauley is president.  Alex. Miller'is understood to be backing Smith heavily, and Hugh McGuii.e  of Phoenix is doing the same thing foi  Hawkins.  Smith has no'particular recoid locally, but it is said he has won a number of contests in Australia. Hawkins  is already in training at Gieenwood,  and Smith is getting ready at Grand  Forks. Each side has posted a toj-  feit of $100.  i|i        PHOENIX BRANCH ORE SHIPMENTS.  <^i        The following table gives the ore shipments of Vhoenix Itnineh ami other Mouiulnry  ^\! mines lor 1900, fur the past week, for iohi. .aiut the total to nule:--  Old Ironsides, Knob Hill  and Victoria   15.

The war in the Transyaal is supposed to be nearly over, but reports  of Boer successes continue to be sent  out with unpleasant frequency.  Phoenix is blessed with but one  telephone system now, the lamb having laid down inside the lion, the latter being the Vernon and Nelson Co.  While the smelter builders have  credited Mr. llreen with the intention  of building the Dominion Copper Co.'s  reduction works at some 20 or 30 different points, nothing definite has  yet been given out. Over in East  Kootenay, however, the Sullivan mine  owners have decided to erect a 150-  ton plant at Marysville  John D. Rockefeller with his thousand million dollars; is by far the  richest man in the world. And he  didn't make it in the newspaper business either.  ' There is no reason to believe that  the work on the V. V. & E. "railway  branch to Phoenix will not be started  .at an early date. At least, this is what  those best informed assert.       ' ���.  Thai was a pfetty compliment to S.  H. C. Miner, president of the Gianby  Co.. when  the united .cities of Grand  . Forks and Columbia decided last week  to call the consolidated place Miner.  Smith Curtis, with engineers, is following Mr. Dewdney through the  Hope mountains, looking for that  much talked of railway pass. It is  safe to say that Mr. Curtis will find it.  Less than two years since the first  shipment of commercial importance  was sent out from a Boundary mine,  yet the total to date is neat ly 840,000  tons. Not' halt bad for a for an undeveloped country.���Grand Forks Ga  7ette  The Gazette man has more than  doubled the correct figuies in his estimate, but still 340,000 tons is a respectable showing, even for two years.  "A useless wagon road," would be a  good title for the new highway recently  built between Phoenix and Summit  City, at a cost to the government ot  $3,600. It is an excellent mountain  road with easy grades for its four and  a half miles, but it is not completed  At the Phoenix, end a team cannot  possibly get to it, and at Summit it is  not much better. The slight work  needed should be done at once.  POINTERS FOR ADVERTISERS.  Adveitising is the wind that swells  the sales.  The non-advertiser is looking at his  trade through the big eiid of a telescope.  The advertiser proceeds like the  flea, by leaps and jumps, and he al  ways lights.on his feet.  A man who wants business must  establish a reputation which shows he  deserves business.'  Advertising has1 no kinship wi.h  charity���except that is should begin at  home.  A dollar's worth for a dollar will always remain gooJ business policy for  the man who advertises.  The ideal ad has a' scope -'so wide  that it takes in practically all leadeis,  while, at the,; same time, no single  reader has cause to even suspect that  he will be "taken in."

WHAT THE EDITORS SAY.  One day last week over 1,800 tons  of ore were on the cars at one time in  the Phoenix'yard of the C. P. R  awaiting transportation to the smelter  and this is' not so unusual a circumstance, either.  There is quite a shake-up iii*" the  provincial cabinet, started by Mr.  Turner's resignation, followed by that  of Richard McBride, minister of mines.  When these'shake-ups get a good start  there's no telling whafthe end will be.  ' In another month the Duke of Cornwall and York "will arrive in British  Columbia oh his* tour'around the  world. 5 Victoria and Vancouver are  preparing to do 'his tfoyal highness  "honor in a manner befitting his station.  It is to be hoped that the Chicago  owners"of the Lake mine, located a  couple of miles or so from Phoenix,  will take up. tfieir option on the Standard Pyritic smefte* at Boundary Falls.  The" more th&'-merrier,; 'and, there's  plenty of ore for'aj/.,,, nv��  With the fishermen's and trackmen's strikes settled, it is-unfortunate  that we cannot chronicle 'also the end  of the Rossland strike and the great  steel strike. The far reaching results  of a fabor strike can hardly be appreciated by the average mind.  Albert Geiser is making an effort to  start the Le Roi mine at Rossland and  is reported to have some 70 men at  work. Mr. Geiser has contracted with  Manager McDonald to get out 150  tons of ore per day. It is hardly  probable that his efforts will finally be  crowned with success. 1  'It may well be called the Year book  of B. C. (Hefore Christ) ��� Moyie  Leader.  Some men are born miners, some  acquite wildcats, and others have  mines thrust upon them���Rossland  Evening World.  If the political prophets know what  they are talking about Premier Duns-  muir pays more attention to the advice  'if Joe Martin than to that ol any  other person. As a proof they say  why should James Cunningham Brown  have been invited into the cabinet if  this is not so?   We give it up.  Says ex Governoi Dewdney: "Pheie  aie more surveyors in this blessed  countiy than there were inhabitants  when I laid out the Dewdney trail."  ���Victoria Post.  There are fifteen establishments in  Silverton. Six of them help support  this paper1; the others we never see,  except when they wish to have something to their interest deadheaded in  the paper as news matter.���Silverton-  ian.' '   ' '  ���The Year Book issued by the B. C,  Government is somewhat fossilized.  It Bays that New Denver is 40 miles  from Spokane. Such silly mistakes  make people wonder whose"child compiled this publication.���New Denver  Ledge.  About this time look out for the  jokes about carving Turkey, the roasting ot Turkey, the giving of the wishbone to Russia, and little things of  this sort. This is not one of the least  of the teirors of war in that badly  named country.���Vancouver World.  It is reported that when the Duke  of York g< es through Canada, T. G.  Shaughnessy, of the C. P. R , will receive the honor of Knighthood. Great  as this honor 'is he would receive a  greater one by digging up a little more  pay per day for the toiling trackmen  of the great railroad ove1- which he  holds the flag.���New Denver Ledge.  Canadlao Newspaper Directory.  A. McKim & Co., Montreal, announce the publication of the third  edition of this valuable book. Like  its predecessors the work is a complete  and interesting handbook of Canadian  .newspapers, and all that appertains  thereto It is useful as a business  directory, because a carefully prepaied  synopsis is given of each town in  which a newspaper is published.  The directory contains complete  lists of newspaper towns, arranged  alphabetically by piovinces, with ample  detail as to the issue, publjslieis politics and estimated circulation of each  paper. Similar lists condensed for  ready refeience, a list of daily papers,  a list of newspapers by counties and a  classified list showing the many different kinds of papers published in Canada make this a most complete newspaper gazetteer.

Last week a pnily of capitalists fioni  Chicago yisited'the Lake .propeity, in  Providence  camp  irom  ing under the title of the Chicago and  Hritish Columbia Mining Co. They  weie so well pleased with the outlook  that they arranged for n�� option on  other properties as well as on the Standard smelter at Uouiidaiy  Kails.  The party consisted ol \V. L. Springer,  piesident of the Chicago Roofing Co.,  and !iis son; Geo. R. I'liamer, president of the Umpire Lumber Co.; P. L.  I.iddcll, anoth'er big lumber manufacturer and Theo. Speaber, manu-  factuier of caskets. Mr. Springer is  president of the company owning and  working the Lake, and alter giving the  property a thorough examination, it  was decided to place the mine on a  shipping basis as soon as possible.  The ore in the shaft is teported to be  widening and also improving in quality  as depth is attained.  Took Option on Smeller.  In Rossland last Sunday the securing of the option on the smelter was  announced   in the following dispatch:  "\V. L. Springer, president of the  Chicago-Britifch Columbia .Mining Co.,  announces that a group of Chicago  manufacture! s and capitalists has  taken an option on the controlling in-  teiests iu the Standard Pyritic Smelter  Co. in the Boundary, together with all  the company's assets, which include  the Marguerite property 'adjoining the  Mother Lode, and the Standard, a  promisii'g property.  "The option is for a short time  only, and he exacted that 'ihe'tmtter  would be closed favorably shortly after  the anival of himself and fiiends at  Chicago, ff a sale be consummated  as he expected,'as the Chicago people  have been -most favorably impressed  with the outlook, he says the plant  would be-'blown in at an early date.  He declared he is satisfied' that there  is abundant'ore available to keep the  plant in'coiistant'operatibii for an in-  definite period/'-"- '' '-1J-!!J  WONDERFUL SHAY ENGINE.  ....HOTEL BROOKLYN....

Easily Tiket Twenty Cars or 600 Tois of Ore  to Smeller.  .'..For'alittle over a"week, the wonderful Shay locomotive,..;'.'that formerly  worked on'the Rossland.hill, has been  taking ore from the.Phoenix mines to  ihe Granby smelter. . The big machine easily bandies "double that of  the old engines,.the ordinary load being 20 cars', or 6oo tons ot ore���and  j sometimes more. . !.'��� .'  j The following description of this remarkable machine is taken from the  Trail News : '  Jt  was   with a view  to  increasing  tho load of 'flmptitM that could be haul-  led up the''mountain  at one trip  that  ! the Canadian  Pacific   purchased   this  'engine.    It is known as the Shay locomotive, arid.is so called after its inventor.    It was  built  at   Lima, O.,  and  has been in operation on the Canadian  Pacific   road   since  last   fall.      The  locomotive is carried on two 4-wheeled  trucks, one beneath the   front end of  the boiler, and the other bei.eath the  coal-pocket, which is located immediately to the rear ot".;the'\c:ali.'"| The  water-lender is can ied on a single  truck, and serves for 'merely carrying  water, for which it hasia capacity of  6 tons.   , '.    ., ���. ';.  Iii place tif the customary twocylin-  deis beneath the smoke-liox,������ working  direct'upon the driyers,' the engine  consists of three, high-jiressure. cylinders, 15 inches diameter,-by 17 inches  stroke, which' are..carried ��� iipon the  right-hand side of' the'boiler at the  front end of the cab, and are arranged  vertically above a longitudinal driving  shall which extends the full length'of  the engine.  Thisdiiving shaft, which is 6 inches  in diaiiieter, is arranged in sections,  with two universal couplings between  each of the three trixks, the anange-  ment being such as to give the trucks  full flexibility for taking the cuives.  The flexibility, indeed, is such that the  locomotive can lound with ease much  shaiper cuives than with the oidinary  type; and it is claimed it is less liable  to deiailment. The wheels are all  utilized as drivers. They are 40  inches in diameter, the width of tbe  tiie, including flange, being 8 inches.  The total weight of the locomotive,  when in working older, is 112 tons���  a weight which is only exceeded by a  few of the latest locomotives built for  the ore canyii-g lailioads of the east.  Results of operation show that, as the  result of her own weight being available for adhesion', and of the advantage gained by being geaied down in  the latio ot 2 to i, this locomotive  will haul about twice the load that can  ba hauled by the ordinal y "consolidation" of the load. The speed, of  course, is low on such a heavy character, the average rate with a full load,  on a 4 per cent, grade, being about 10  miles an hour.  Leased,  Humming  and  K." R.

The wagon load  from a short distance'above the Morrison up to the King Solomon has  been improved from a, very rough bush  road to one of the best milling camp  roads in the district, excepting the  main stage roads. Tlie owners of the  mine concluded that there was little  use expecting the provincial govern;  nient to do this very /necessary work,  so they' did it themselves, and now  they   have a road   over   which   there  exhibits aie reported as being collect  ed at Phoenix, Giand Folks, Midway,  Rossland, Trail," Nelson, Ymir, Ains-  woith, Kaslo, Sandon and a number  ofothei points.

Co,  recently  acquired  control of the Columbia system  that  the lines would be* run  separately as  heretofore,  but the   Columbia   lines  were in such  bad sha|)e here, that it  was thought best' to consolidate the  two offices,  which   has   accordingly  been done.
