Notwithstanding the threatening  weather, Labor Day celebration in  Phoenix was successfully carried out,  the special trains and teams bringing  in people from Republic, Grand Forks,  Eholt, Aiidwayj Greenwood and a  number of other places. The different labor organizations paraded to the  C. P. R. station Monday morning,  headed by the Greenwood band, and  met the incoming excursion train.  Following that a Labor Day oration  was given in the open air by E. T.  Kingsley, of Vancouver. On the program the logrolling contest was the  first event, but on account of low  water it was postponed till the second  day.

Monday evening the Phoenix-  Trades and Labor Council gave a  ball at Miner's Union hall, where a  large nnmber enjoyed themselves  until  ati early hour the next morning.  Second Diy's Events.  Tuesday the first event was the log  rolling contest, the water being plenty  high enough. The contestants were  Martin Shea, Sam Mullin, William  Stearns, Frank Riordan and Fred  Dempsey. The attempts of the men  to stay on the log furnished much  amusement for the large number that  had gathered to witness the sport, the  result being that first prize went to  Frank Riordan and the second to Sam  Mullin.  For the hose reel races both the  Greenwood and Grand Forks teams had  stated that they would be on hand,  but the Greenwood team failed to put  in an appearance. In the hub and  hub race, Phoenix came in first, and  Grand Forks took second money.  The wet test was made in the after-  noonon Knob Hillavenue.and required  several runs to decide the matter. The  No. 1 team from Phoenix ran first, but  did not get water. The No. 2 team  did the same thing, and the Grand  Forks team did not come in within the  agreed upon time limit of 30 seconds  In the second race the No. 1 team got  water in 29 2-5 seconds, the No. 2  team in 28 3-5 seconds, and when the  Grand Forks team ran they made a tie  of the time for first place. It was  finally decided between the two lead  ing teams to divide the prizes evenly,  CALEDONIAN  SPORTS.  Hunter;  2d,   J. McLaren; 3d George  Trainner. ..:���.������.'���'���'.

GRANBY IS  PROBABLY   THE  NEXT  Annual .Heeling of the Latter to be Held  October Sin. la Montreal���Another Smelter to.be Erected.  Will Send Two Defecates,  -At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council those present were Mayor  Rumberger and Aldermen McDonald,  Porter .and Marshall. G. C. Hodge,  district manager of the Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co., was present and  had a long conference with the city  fathers. He asked for a reduction of  the license fee of $100 per year, and  it was finally made $75. He also  wished to know where he could place  the new line of poles to be erected up  Dorninipn avenue .by:his;company in  the course of its contemplated improvements in this city. As the council had already made an agreement  with the V., V. & E. railway in regard  to this precise ground, it could do but  little in the matter till the railway made  a move. . .Consequently Mr. Hodge is  unfortunately still guessing.  The council decided | to send two  delegates to meet the large party of  English tourists who are due to arrive  here next Monday and Tuesday in two  sections, there being over 100 of them.  The expenses of each delegate were  limited to $10.   .  Following are the accounts ordered  paid :        '  Joseph Trainner... .$21.00  1   A. Gustavson. ......   17.50  J.

Co     8.10  After many years of development  the Boundary country is at last entering upon the dividend-paying period���  the period always looked forward toby  those who have shown the faith that is  in them by putting their hard cash in  our mines.     '   , j  The Providence Mining Co., operating the Providence mine, has declared a dividend of 52 cents per  share, as anticipated. The amount  distributed amounts to $2,800, and  represents the first actual dividend paid  by any mine in the Boundary district.  The mine is looking well, and it is now  expected that a dividend will be de  clared every month or two.        '  In an interview in Spokane, -��� Mr.  Graves, manager of the' Granby Consolidated, is reported to have stated  that the annual meeting of the company will be held in Montreal October  8th, and that it is possible that a dividend will then be declared, the paying  of it resting on a question of policy.  Some months since Mr. Graves stated  that if the company could get sixty  days' continuous run of the four furnaces at the smelter, a dividend would  in all likelihood be declared. The  coke troubles being over, the smelter  has at last-been able to run-.iiie.'fouf  furnaces for over sixty days continuously. ���   ��� - ���-- ���   ;  Mr. Graves also made the statement  that next year work would be st.arttd  on another smelter, which would be a  duplicate of the present works.  The force at the Oro Denoro, Summit , camp, has . been increased to 25  men. ,  Once again this week the Snowshoe  has broken all previous records for  shipping ore, the total being not far  from 3,000 tons for the seven days.  Manager Plewman, of the Winnipeg,  expects to start shipments of ore on a  small scale next week. The mine is  now pumped out down to the 100 foot  level.  For the first time in the history of  mining in British Columbia, it is announced that the LeRoi No. 2 mine  Rossland has made a contract with  the Greenwood smelter for the treatment of its ores.

OTHER MINES IN TBE SAME CONDITION  The report published by the Pioneer  some weeks ago that the Greenwood  smelter was arranging to use Cascade  power, via Phoenix, has been confirmed from Greenwood this week, notwithstanding its denial at the time first  printed. ������'���;.:  Two furnaces were blown in at.the  Graphy smelter last Thursday and two  more yesterday morning. The two  new ones are connected but cannot be  blown in till the two slag-carrying  locomotive's arrive from the east, which  will probably be in three or four weeks.  The mines yesterday began shipping  1,200 tons of ore per day.  No Reason for Any Mail 10 Go Without  Work la the Boussary���Is likely to  Remain So.  ENGLISH-TOURISTS ARRIVE MONDAY.

Next.Monday the first half of the  party of over 100 English tourists,  who attended the fifth congress of the  Chambers of Commerce  of the   Em-  There is no cause for men to be  idle in the Boundary country this fall  and "Winter, for the simple reason that  the forces at all the properties are  being gradually increased.,. Of course,  the Granby Consolidated needs more  men than any other mining company,  as they are doing more business,  shipping more ore, and making more  of an increase in their equipment for  getting out ore and reducing it. Assistant Manager Flumerfelt, of the  Granby mines,, said to the Pioneer  this week:  "We could use 100 more men today, if >ve could get them, but men  seem to be scarce. As you know, .we  have been running with less men than  we actually need for a month or two,  and now we wish to secure the full  number. We have sent word to Vancouver, Victoria, Nelson, Rossland  and cither .places, and hope soon to  have all that we need. A number  have come in this .week, but we have  places  , for.,- a  good   many  more  at  pire, recently  held at  Montreal, and  who have been'making a  trip through.!standard .wages,   both at  the  mines  Canada, will arrive in Phoenix. .

Rape,  u^er ifi���ist, Lloyd  Five polling places have been selected for Grand Forks riding, as follows :  Morrison block, Grand Forks; Old  Schoolhouse, Phoenix; Townsite building Cascade; Shaw's house, Bannock  City, North Fork; McLaren's building,  Carson.  According to the Grand Forks News-  Gazette of last week, the number of  voters on the list in this riding was cut  down to 55S by the court of revision.  This must be an error, as there were  971 names on the list when registration was closed, and the list would  hardly-be cut down over 400.  Change of Train Time.  While nothing official is yet given  out about the details of the change of  time on the C. P. R., to go into"effect  for the fall and winter schedule, it is  rumored that the change will be made  so that the C. P. R. can compete with  the Great Northern for the coast travel  ���the latter now getting the lion's  share. It is the plan to have trains  leave Phoenix early in the morning,  say about 6:30, so that passengers can  arrive in Vancouver the next afternoon.  This will be accomplished by traveling  by way of Slocan Lake instead of the  long steamer route up the Columbia.  Only six or seven changes would be  necessary between Phoenix and the  coast, It seems to be the intention  to put this change into operation as  soon as the Imperial limited is taken  off���about the first of October.  Victoria, B.-C, Sept 7.���Provincial elections have been set for October 3d, instead of October 31 st, as  orginially gazetted.  An extra of the British Columbia  Gazette has been issued, announcing  that the old writs have been cancelled  and that new ones have been issued,  bearing date September 5 th, returnable  on or before Nov. 2.  It is also now announced that the  legislature will meet November 26th  for the despatch of business, the last  three words being printed in'" capitals.'  : Premier McBride stated that ��� the  elections had been advanced exactly  one lunar month, and would beheld  on Octocer 3 instead of October 31,  as previously gazetted. His .reasons  for thus cutting-off. .28 days- of the  campaign are said by the; premier  himself to be, firstly, because so hiiicn  has been said about the government  being merely one of suffraiice, and  therefore it intended tb get the  opinion of the people as quickly as  possible; secondly, the state of the  province's finances was so deplorable  that fiscal reform was immediately  necessary.  A wagon road is beipg surveyed,  from the B,otts and Hesnerus mines on  Hajdy mountain,, to th,e Granby smelter, which will shorten the distance  about four miles.  Phoenician Killed at Ymir.  Word was received by wire Thursday that Robert Curtis, formerly of  this camp, had. been killed in the  Ymir mine at Ymir. Mr. Curtis had  been a fireman at the Granby mines  for several years, and left for Ymir  last spring. He was a prominent Odd  Fellow, and yesterday Walter Morrison, noble grand of Snowshoe Lodge  of that order, went over to-Ymir to  bring back the remains of Curtis,  with the intention of holding the  funeral tomorrow if possible..

"Remember the Maine" has evidently  got on Jonathan's nerves.���^-Victoria  Times.  B. G MINING  . *-��.���>-�� ������������������".  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  Announcement  was received from  the   government  this  week  that  the  provincial  elections will  take place a  month earlier than had been expected.  One reason given  for bringing them  on  sooner was that there had been so  few objections1 to the names in the  voter's  lists  th.it little or no time was  required in revising them.    Another���  and    certainly   an  e\ceilent one���is  that  the finances of the province are  in such a bad condition-that it is essential that the new legislature get to  work as soon as possible afterelection,  and according to the present program  it can meet in November and transact  considerable business before the holidays.  Of course,,the opposition press is  quick to raise a hue and cry that the  bringing on of the elections sooner is  a trick of the McBride government,  and that they have some sinster nio  tive in doing this. Yet the Grit papers  do not tell what that motive is that is  so dark. Let us see. When the date  of election was set for October 31st,  the Liberals denounced it being set  so far" off, and asserted that the government was merely hanging on to the  reins of power as long as possible, with  more to the same effect. Now that  the election is to be four weeks sooner,  they have forgotten all about their  former cry, and are unwilling to acknowledge that Mr. McBride is doing  the very thing they wished for a few  weeks ago.  It appears to us that it is ] a good  thing that the election will be held  .sooner. If there is any particular advantage in a long drawn out campaign,  it has yet to be mentioned. Each of  the three parties has time enough to  do all the electioneering needful, iiiid  the quicker the agony is over the better for the country at large!    r  Constant advertising results in; a  constant demand for the goods advertised.

In our prosaic, every-day life we do  not stop long enough to think of. the  ordinary hero that comes across our  path. In time of war a hero is lauded  to the skies, perhaps he receives the  Victoria cross, and his name is sung  in song and story for months arid  years afterwards. Many times he risks  only his own life or saves only his own  life. He is a hero none the less. But  there is another kind of hero that de-  serverves enduring fame.  Last week an engineer on the C. P.  R. proved himself to be such a: man;  whose name should be remembered  for many a year. He was in charge  'of the throttle on the Imperial Limited, which was running at full speed  back in Quebec, when, through some  mistake a collision was imminent. Did  Engineer McMahon jump from his  cab and try to save his own life, forgetting those of the others in his  charge? Not he. He was not made  of that kind of stuff. Reversing the  lever, he stayed at his post, saved the  lives of hundreds of helpless passengers in the coaches at the rear, receiving himself such injuries in the collision that followed that he died a  short time afterwards.  Eng.neer McMahi'in's name should  .   be enrolled in the book of time as .'one,  who unflinchingly gave his life to save  -, that of others.   He had little chance  to think, but that thought was of the  ��� Ji 1  The habit of looking on the bright  side of things is better than an income  of a thousand a year.���flume.        :���''  .'���!...,��� '.'V '-,--'"���;-'-.'        ..,.,/���.'

If this is correct, what is the  matter with ' securing a live man to  look after the advertising end of the  fair ? The chances are he might do  the event some good.  P. T. Burn urn once said : "If you  have $10 to put in good use, put $1  for the article and $9 for the advertising. 1 can out-talk any man but a  printer.

It is said that the saloon men of  Rossland have subscribed to an agreement regulating the prices at which  alcoholic refreshments are to be sold.  A bond of $1,000 is attached/to ensure strict adherance to the agreement.  It is stated that the brewery meri desire some amendments to the agreement before falling into line.

A man once asked an Irish  clergyman what a miracle was. He  gave him a, full explanation, which did  not satisfy the man, who said: "Now,  won't your reverence give me ari example of a miracle ?" "Well, said the  priest, "step in front of me and I'll  see, what I can do." As the man  did so he gave him a tremendous,kick  behind. "Did you feel that ?" he! asked.

Waiting for'a more favorable time  to care for th��j teeth is more expensive  than the dental operation 'itself, any  way you figure it. It costs money,  trouble and teeth to wait.  Filling the Teeth :  Frequent examination of the teeth  by a dentist j cannot be urged too  strongly. No one can tell when decay  has commenced upon his own teeth;  it may be quite out of sight and require a strict search by an experienced  person to dete:t it, but it is none the  less dangerous on that account. Cavi  ties should be filled as soon as discovered, and the mischief stopped at  once.  Tartar ���  Tartar is a deposit of lime from the  fluids of the mouth on the necks of  the teeth. It has a tendency to in  crease, and always in the direction of  the gums; first inflaming them, then  causing them to puff up and appear  red and spongy, bleeding at the slightest touch, and finally to recede and  slough away, and with them the bony  process which holds , the teeth, until  good, sound teeth drop out for the  want of proper support. This deposit  of tartar renders the breath offensive,  besides keeping the gums sore and  tender. Many persons suffer in this  way for .years, not .knowing ��� the. true  cause. Neglect to have tartar removed  from the teeth by a dentist causes the  breath to become tainted with an unspeakable odor, making it not only  offensive to the owner, but obnoxious  to all whose ill-fortune it is to come in  contact with it  Advertising imay induct * nua of womar  to buy the first pair of "Slater Shoes" but if th.  first pair be a failure no-amount of adVertism;-,  will induce the disappointed wearer, to buy -  second pair. ; '-'���  If every man and woman in-Canada boutrht  a pair of "Slater Shoes" through advertising^ Jincf  ceased wearing���or buying them aftct the firr'  purchase, the entire Canadian market for "Stan.  Shoes" would be exhausted in less than two year-.  Yet the sales of "Slater Shoes* hare gor.  on increasing for many years. ���-������ > ���    ,-  The same people have been buying tl;  "Slater Shoe" year after year and constan  advertising is making new wearers every season  'proving that ft is as good a shoe as its  makers claim it to be. v   .

Croivn and Bridgt  Work :  Crown work enables the skillful  dentist to restore a badly decayed1 or  broken tooth to its original size, shape,  color and usefulness, by attaching an  artificial crown to the natural root.  Many teeth, heretofore ' considered  worthless, are now made comfortable,  useful and durable; and so closely  matching the adjoining teeth as to be  imperceptible���indeed, even the wearer  forgets the presence of the artificial  tooth.  Bridge work is the modern method of  filling the space caused by one or more  missing teeth without the use of a  plate to cover the roof the mouth.  Artificial Teeth;  A good set of artificial teeth is to be  preferred to a poor set of natural ones.  Nothing that is worn upon the person  is of so much importance as the set of  artificial teeth, and they require, for  successful results, artistic and mechanical skill,  Extracting Teeth:  Aching, loose, diseased or broken  teeth should be removed if too far  gone to be treated and filled. Often  their presence is a menace to health.  About the Cost:  My fees are low enough to be reasonable and high enough to pay for as  good dentistry as can be had anywhere  ���high enough to use the best material  and to yield fair remuneration for  time, skill and material  DO IT NOW.  Have your teeth attended to  now. Don't put it off to a more con  venient season. They may get in  such condition as will be difficult to-  repair.  DR.

This was the first discovery  of gold in the West.  The Tread well Mining Company  has paid the sum of $2,000,000 to the  Newells of Juneau, for 20 claims of  free milling gold quartz, located on  Berner bay, Lynn Canal.  The man who first located the famous Congress mine, Arizona, which  is the deepes't gold mine in the world,  died recently in Arizona, a poor man.  He sold the Congress for $150. The  property has been held at $5,000,000  since developed.  Jerome Drumheller, Spokane, John  W'entworth, and a New York syndicate  have purchased 15 of the most promising mining claims in Okanagan  county, Wash., for $3,000,000. A  company to be known as the Copper  World Gold.Mining & Smelting Company, is under course of organization  and will take over all the, properties,  among which is the noted Copper World  group of mines. The new company  will construct a smelter.  TO ALL POINTS  East and West  VIA  Some of Ibe Voters' Lists.

CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM  (Adopted at Revciitoke, Sept. 13th, 1902.)  1. That this convention reaffirms the  policy of the party in matters of provincial roads and trailsl'trfeownefshipand  control of railways and the development  of the agricultural resources of the prov-  ince as laid down in-the platform' adopted in October, J889, which is as follows:  "To actively aid in the construction of  trails throughout the undeveloped por- ,  lions of the province and the buildingof  provincial trunk roads of public necessity.  "To adopt the principles of government'ownership of railways in so far as  the circumstances of-the province will  admit, and the adoption of the principle  that no bonus should be granted to any  railway company which does not give  the government of the province control  of rates over lines bonused, together  with the option of purchase.  "To actively aPRist by state, .aid in the ;  development of the agricultural resouces  of the province.  2. That, in the meantime and until  the railway, policy above set forth can  be accomplished, a general railway act  be passed, giving freedom to construct  railways under certain approved regulations, analogous to the system thai; has  resulted in cuch extensive railway construction in tbe United States, with bo  much advantage to trade and commerce.  .   3.   That to encourage tbe mining in- '  diistry, the taxation   of  metalliferous  mines should be'on the basis of a percentage on the net profits.  4.   That the government ownership  of telephone systems should be brought .  about as a first step in the acquisition  of public utilities.  -6. Thatta, portion of every coal area  hereafter to be disposed of should be reserved from sale or lease, so that state-  owned mines may be easily accessible, if  their operation becomes necessary or advisable.  6. .That in pulp land leases provision  i-hould be made for reforesting and that  kleps should be taken for the general  I reservation of forests by guarding  against the wasteful destruction of timber.  7. Thatf.the legislature and government of the province should persevere  in the effort to secure the exclusion of  Asiatic labor. ������  8. That the matter of better terms in  the way of subsidy and appropriations  for the* province should be vigorously  pressed upon the Dominion government.  9. That the silver-lead industries of  the province be fostered and encouraged  by the imposition of increased customs  duties on lead and lead products imported into Canada, and that the Conservative members of the Dominion House be  urged to support any measure introduced  for such a purpose. "'  10. That as industrial disputes almost  invariably result in great loss and injury  both to the parties directly concerned  and to the public, legislation should be  passed to provide means for an amicable  adjustment of such disputes between  employers and employees.  11. That it is advisable to foster the  manufacture of the raw products of the  province within the province as far as  practicable by means of taxation on the  said raw products, subject to rebate .of  the same in whole or part when manufactured in British Columbia.
