PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, SEPT. 11,  1915  Labor Day in Phoenix broke with  beautiful weather, but unfortunately  the   mood    of   the   weather   clerk  changed  in  the  afternoon   and  put  quite a damper on the Miners' Union  celebration which took  place on the  New York townsite grounds.     Rain  fell   intermittently   and     the   thermometer dropped  to an unpleasant  point, sending, many'scurrying, home  long- before  the  arranged  program  of sports had been pulled off.  Dancing   was   indulged  in  for  a  few hours, and   a good  deal  of in-  terest was centred , in. the game be  tween   the   local   Oddfellows     and  Fraternal  Order  of Eagles,   which  resulted after some .spirited play, in  a defeat for the big birds by a score  of 11 to 7.     The  refreshment booth  proved a powerful magnet  for the  youngsters who, in   spite  of the inclement weather, made a big inroad  into   the  stock   of ice   cream,  soft  drinks, etc.  In the  morning the  teams  oflhe  Knights of Pythias and Oddfellows  met on   the   Idaho   diamond,   when  the triple-link artists   were given a  close rtinand only came off victors  , by the narrow score of 14-13.      The  game appeared to be a cinch for the  triangles, who unaccountably fell to  pieces during���the  last�� few minutes  of play.  In the evening the' fine ballroom  of the Union hall was crowded" with  dancers, many of'-whom" travelled  in from out-lying points for the final  event of the day. In fact it is safe  to'say that" in" the" ma'tter'oflocal  dances, this one in point of attendance perhaps"; .constituted a record:  A'fine program of music vyas promised, and if the demand for encores was any criterion of merit,  the members of the Ironsides orchestra  certainly  redeemed  their word.  The honors of prize waltzers were  eagerly   contested, -there   being no  lack of competitors, and.nobody envied the judges their task.     Messrs.  W.  Oxley, Geo.   McAuIiffe  and C.  Davidsqn, however,   were  equal  to  it, and after  some  careful judging,  awarded   the  laurels  to Miss  Irene  Cafferty   and J.  Oborne,  of Grand  Forks.     Thos. Roberts made a very  acceptable floor manager.  The names of winners of the races  will be  published in  our next issue.  B. C.

Smith, general supt. of the  Granby Consolidated, arrived in the  town during the week on one of his  periodical visits of inspection to the  local property of the company.     In-  the course of an   informal talk with  a representative of the Pioneer, the  visitor stated  that the  Anybx plant  was   steadily   increasing  it  output.  Now that   the   new  addition  to the  smelter    was    in   commission   they  were   now   treating  90,000  tons   a  months,   and   on one occasion  had  put through  4100 tons  in one day.  They were now installing  a device  for saving the fines   in the flue dust  which   would  otherwise be wasted.  Outside work   for some time has  been largely confined to the erection  of additional   cottages   for  the   increasing number of employees, and  the educational requirements of the  town have been met by the building  of a large school house.

The machine resembles somewhat a fanning mill on a large scale.  It is driven by motor power, either  steam or gasoline, and is put on a  raft which ties up to a bar which is  to be worked.  .:, R.

The  consideration is understood to be   a   $57,-  000 bond.    This property  is  a zone  of low grade  which   will   require a  large expenditure of money on equipment and work before it reaches the  producing stage, but   it   gives   promise of being a very  large   shipper.  The property is only five miles from  the railway, and the nearest point to  the  railway   is   about   fifteen   miles  east of Telkwa.���Omineca  Herald, j  decided to make the Trail smelter  the equal of the greatest reduction  works on the American continent."

Only a   slight   increase in  the buying demand was required to  advance the price of electrolytic from  around 16 cents to   18 cents a week  ago, and the volume of transactions  since put through has been relatively small.     Practically  every   one of  the producers has sold a few million  pounds of copper, some of it. for delivery in January   and   February of  next year.

The American department of labor have declared that ajiy citizen of  the republic who takes up arms for  any of the beligerents, will forfeit  his rights. The government of the  United Kingdom issued a similar  order during the' Spanish-American  war, but no one took the slightest  notice of it. -;������  Saturday, Sept. 11, 1915.  The Guelph Mercury says: "In  Kaslo they impound chickens running at large, and charge twenty-  five cents to get them out. The  place needs the money and is determined  to get  it   by fair   means  or  fowl."   ���__;���^   Von Tirpitz ,is a long time handing in that resignation; . Almost as  tedious as Madame" Parti's "last  appearances."  The idea  to some   extent current  in Scotland  that  General von Mackensen is a  highlander  gone astray  is   quite  erroneous.    One  finds on  . the   continent   occasional   traces  of  Scottish names slightly transformed  to fit their surroundings.    They are  common enough in Holland, thanks  to  the  famous  eighteenth   century  regiment "of  the Scots-Dutch,  and  we have an example in the Norwegian   pianist Greig,  whose ancestors  Griegs of Arbroath,  settled in Bergen, Norway.     Von  Mackensen  is  no sort of a   Mackenzie.     He takes  his name from  the village of Mackensen on the Soiling.    While on the  subject-of  British names "found* on  the continent, it may be appropriate  at this time to point out that it was  the advice of Barclay, the Scottish-  Russian  commander,   that brought  about the   burning of Moscow and  the consequent disastrous retreat, of  "Napoleon's grand army.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier opposes conscription. But, after all, that's all  he ever will be able to doj^oppose.

FAVILLE  Superintendent of Cattle Department  of the ftpokane Interstate Fair and  Live  Stock Show.  Speaking of the prospects, Supt.  Fayllle said:  "The cattle department of the Interstate Fair this year promises a larger  number  of  entries  than  in  previous  years.    It will be recalled that, last  year the Spokane Interstate Fair had  "the largest exhibit of cattle in its.history.    The  leading dairy breeds  and  . beef breeds were represented by prominent breeders of the four Northwest  states.    This year the outlook is for  a still larger exhibit.   Entries are already coming in which   shows   that  plans are'being made by not only the  exhibitors in the four states, but from  as  far east as Wisconsin  and   from  western .Canada.-   The raising of the  embargo on the foot and mouth disease means  that the Interstate  Fair  will be greatly benefited.  "Exhibitors showing at the fair this  year will meet with greater opportunities of displaying and selling the pure  bred 4ive ���3tock from their herd than  in previous years, because the demand  for pure bred stock this fall is sure to  come, A meeting of the Pure Bred  Live Stock Breeders' Association of  Washington will be held during fair  week. A.catalog of exhibitors and animals exhibited will be issued, as was  done last year, and publicity will be  given to the department on a larger  scale than in previous years. It is  planned during the fair week that on  each day a live stock parade will be  made in front of the grandstand."  Old exhibitors have advised Supt.  Faville that they are planning to bring  larger displays than they did last year,  and are now lining up their stock and  getting them in condition. Many will  take their stock from Spokane to the  Panama-Pacific exposition at San  Francisco, to exhibit in the world's  championships, some stopping enroute  at exhibitions to follow the Interstate  Fair, while some from Canada enroute  to San Francisco will stop over in Spokane for fair week, adding to the interest in the competition.  Every livestock raiser will be sent  a premium list upon request to the  secretary, Geo. P. Larsen, at Spokane.

YOUR PATRONAGE SOLICITED.  MINERALS DISPLAY EXCELS  Largest Collection Ever Gathered in  Northwest Shown at Spokane Fair.  The Spokane Mining Exchange is  gathering the largest and most representative collection of minerals ever  assembled in the Inland Empire for  display at the Spokane Interstate Fair,  Sept. 13 to 18. It will comprise samples of ores and concentrates from all  of the silver-lead mines in the Coeur  d'Alene district, copper ores from the  Mullan and Chewelah districts and silver, lead and zinc from the Slocan district. ��  The exhibit will be installed and superintended by F. C. Bailey, secretary  of the Mining Exchange, who has  made a tour of the several districts  and who reports the mining men enthusiastic over the collection, which  will be one of the big features of the  fair.

AH government road work in the  provincial constituency of Yale was  finished last week.  Trains on the Grand Trunk Pacific system are to be provided with  parlor observation cars.  One thousand head of beef cattle  are expected tb be shipped from  Nicola Valley ranches this month.  The kaiser has awarded the iron  cross of the first class to the socialist leader, Sudekeum, for bravery in  battle.  Oost, the private secretary of  "General" DeWet, has been sentenced to one year's imprisonment  for treason.  Edward Lawrence, a Canadian  soldier stationed in England, has  been committed for trial on a charge  of highway robbery.  The non-Scottish members of the  Vancouver police force have registered a protest against the proposed  formation of a police bagpipe band.  Last w^ek a salmon was caught  in Kootenay Lake that measured 33  inches in length and 22 inches in  girth. It took the sportsman two  hours to land it.  The three German officers who recently, attempted to make their escape from a Welsh prison camp,  have been sentenced to 84 day's imprisonment.  Hon. Dr. Pyne, minister of education for Ontario, has established  his headquarters at Orpington,  England, where the new Ontario  government hospital will be situated.  In a letter written at his home at  Oyster Bay, Col. Roosevelt thanks-  Sir Richard McBride and Hon. Dr.  Young for the courtesies shown him  during his recent brief visit to this  province.  Lloyd-George does not believe in  doing things by halves. A certain  commodity being required for the  manufacture of munitions of war, he  promptly went to work and purchased the world's supply.  The advocates of temperance are  not at all satisfied with the progress  made in this province. They are  now about to ask the government  to prohibit the sale of all intoxica  ting liquors except beer and light  wines.  The French military cross has  been awarded on the battlefield to  Francis Hooper, son of a Montreal  grocer. Young Hooper left this  country with the first batch of  French reservists as a volunteer. He  was in the trenches all winter.  The Crucible Steel company of  New York, has received an order  for ten million dollars worth of high  explosive shells. The largest feature of the contract is for eleven  thousand 15-inch shells. These  when loaded, will weigh 19501bs  apiece.  A large number of offers to refloat the Emden have been made to  the Australian government. The  conditions are for all her guns and  armament to be given to the author-  ties and if the vessel is refloated, the  compensation will be decided by arbitration.  The Cumberland (England) coal  miners have registered a protest  against the proposal to import miners from Vancouver Island. They  say that there are a hundred Cumberland miners on the Island unemployed, and if the alien enemies  were discharged there would be  work for the Britishers.  P. P. Knocker, a merchant of  Sask., is arranging with the Grand  Trunk officials for the transfer to  British Columbia of a Mennonite  colony. The site of the new settlement is the Stewart River district  in the centre of the province. Three  hundred persons are included in the  first batch and next spring another  addition of 300 will move in.  All doubt that the swallow does  return to the actual locality were it  was hatched, has been cast aside by  recent proofs furnished by the American Bird Banding Association.  The members of the above society  have been placing leg bands on captured birds for some years past, and  only recently several were retaken  with leg bands that had been placed  on them two and three years before.  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH   IN   MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING  POSSIBILITIES���  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception rnineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there  are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal. '-..<'.������  FOREST AND  MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. ' There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could   not  be   reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay.    Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Bhoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineralclaims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and a visit to some of its spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the'strariger. The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on^the construction of government roads.  No locality is better served with railroads than the Boundary district. At  present this section is served by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.  branch of the former.  I. O. O. F.

The Phoenix Volunteer Reserve  meets for drill every Wednesday and  Friday evening in the skating riuk.  Don't be a slacker. The services of  the company may yet be required,  and let it be remembered that Canada was once the victim of an irresponsible raid from the United  States. History has very often repeated itself.  With the example of Labor Day  before us, w.e must now mournfully  admit the failure of the wild and  woolly west to live up to its old-  time reputation. Not even a two-  and-a-half-dollar-drunk was up before Police Magistrate Mulligan the  following day. No wonder we go  to the motion picture show in search  of a little excitement.  Today, Saturday, the members of  the Miners' Union will hold a smoking concert in the evening in aid of  one of their fraternity who was badly injured in a mine accident. Admission fifty cents. All friends of  the union who are executants of any  musical instrument, or who are  gifted with "voices," are invited to  tender their services and make the  affair achieve its benevolent purpose.  The Woman's Patriotic Society  make an earnest appeal to their sisters in Phoenix to contribute articles for their forthcoming bazaar,  the proceeds of which will be used  towards alleviating the sufferings  and hardships of our heroic men it  the front.

In  addition  to the many  prizes  offered  for   agricultural   and  horticultural products, quite a pretentious  list  has  been   reserved for  other  lines,   such   as photography,  pyrography, home baking, lace  embroidery, fruit preserving, painting,  etc.    ' Local parties intending to exhibit should  communicate   with   the  secretary, Walter E. Hadden.  Not  all   the  well-meant gifts for  the soldiers at the front are received  with open arms.     Take for instance  the   body   belts    that   kind-hearted  and earnest workers have shipped to  Tommy  Atkins   by   the  thousands.  These,    according   to   one   writer,  come  in   very   handy  for   cleaning  harness, rifles,  shoes,  saddlery and  cooking  utensils.     Not    one    in   a  thousand is being  used for the purpose the sender intended it for. The  same    is   the   case   with   woollen  gloves.    As  soon as they   become  wet the soldiers have to throw them  away,   unless  they   are  in   a place  where they can be readily dried.

THRiLUNS HUMAN DRAMA OF  THE WORLD'S GREATEST WAR  mm  worthy one, in fact a sacred duty if  ���Ab eminent scientist, the other day,  ggrm bis opinion that the most -wonderful discovery of recent years was  the discovery of Zam-Buk. Just  think! Aa .soon as a single thin layer  of y Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or  a sore, ouch injury is insured against  blood poison! Not one species of  microbe has been found that Zam-Buk  does net kill!  Then again. As soon as Zam-Buk  is applied to a sore, or a oat, or to  sldii disease, it stops the smarting.  That is why children are such' friends  of Zam-Buk. They care nothing for  the .science of the thing. AM they  know Is that Zam-Bak stops their  pain. Mothere snoold never forget  this.  Again, -As soon aa Zam-Buk Is applied to & wound or to a diseased  part, the cells .beneath the skin's surface are bo stimulated that new  healthy tissue is quickly formed. This  forming of f rqsh .healthy tissue from  lelow is Zam-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.

An aeroplane scouts the horizon and sails over the field, heralding the  coming of the enemy.

Soon the enemy rushes to the attack, skirting  the horizon, dashing through the forests and across the plains, with their  entanglements of barbed wires, brush, fallen horses, disabled motor cars  and abandoned ammunition trains. Great cannon roar, the big selge guns  go into action from afar, shells burst high in air and all around the fighting  troops, and the earth fairly shakes as the battle reaches its height. More  armored cars dash into play, bringing fresh supplies of men and ammunition,  tho heavens glow with the bright fire and the Red Cross ambulances rush  upon the scene amid the bursting of shells. The fight in the trenches is  en, a hand to hand fight is on, and soon the fight is over and the victors  rejoice in songs and pyrotechnic celebration. Huge set pieces form a picturesque finish to the great spectacular pageant and drama, cue of the  largor,t being a dove of peace holding a laurel wreath.
