It pays to deal with.us.  niembeis of the British journalistic  coips, now touring Canada, arrived in  I'hoenix: E. G. I.eSage, London Daily  Telegiaph; James Proudfoot, Glasgow  Daily Herald; James Lumsden, Leeds  Meicuiy; G. M. Howe, Highland  News, Inverness.  The day before the visitors had gone  over the Gianby and Mother Lode  smel'.eis They were escoited from  Greenwood by Mayor Rumberger, Acting Ross of Greenwood, and A. J. McMillan.  Arriving at Phoenix, as time was  short, the party was quickly taken ovez  and thiough the Knob Hill mine by  Supt. Williams. Note books and cameras weie constantly in use, and the  members of the fourth estate frankly  said they would not have believed had  they not seen with their own eyes the  gigantic 01 e bodies here.  The entire party then went to the  Snowshoe mine, where they were guests  of Mr. G. S. Waterlow at luncheon,  covers being laid for 24.  Mr. Waterloo's Hippy Introdnctlon.  Mr. Wateilow, in introducing the  to.istp, said:  Gentlemen, our time is sli< rt, but a  few words, as well as many, will convey  our hcartii'bt welcoirc to our guests,  whom we feel honored to have here  amongst us, representing as they do that  mighty organ, the Briiish press, which  is the heart of the world, eehoini: every  pulse throb of humanity.  We bid you welcome to Phoenix camp,  for which so much has been done by the  Granby Co.. Mr. Miner, Mr. Graves and  Mr. Flumbrfelt, and by the. enterprise of  Superintendent Williams.  We bid yon welcome to the Snowshoe  mine, owned by a London Co., better  known here and in the United States  than in London, but formed in London  during that trying period of the South  African war���founded without ostenta.?  tion or show, without any underwriting  or bonuses; among whoBe members are  many of the largest London financiers.  We have steadily worked on for two and  one half yaars, anil are now beginning to  achieve the result of patient waitingand  labor. You can bear the resounding  salvos of tbe booming of the splitting  rocks, where hut a few years ago reigned the solitude of dense forests., The  form of mining from (injuries is perhaps  somewhat novel to you, gentlemen, but  its possibilities and potentialities must  be patent to all.  We have ore that will Instils for many  years, and 1 believe Mr. Williams could  which reflected  badly In London, hut  experience lias taught us that, to use an  old engineers'aphorism,;.',"a mine is not  found but made,''- and? that only with  much capital, time and,patience.

Mr. Le.Sage and gentlemen, we bid you  and give you a: most hearty welcome to  this, our Phoenix camp and the Boundary.    We admire you for enterprise in  coming to view, the great! resources of  Canada.   Canada is'the-brighest jewel  in the Imperial Crown.   X?a 'iave 8een  its fine cities, you have seen  its: vast  praii iee, the granarv of the world, you  have seen its great waterways^,'its fertile  plains, the home of'thousands of cattle  and horses, and you have seen the vast  forests of timber, and' now   the great  mountains teeming with mineral wealth.  And we; trust-that, you  will not find  among the least of these the mining industry of  British Cobiiijbia, and that,  you will: return across the. waters in  s-afety, impressed with the potentiality  of low grade mining.iru-the Boundary  country, and that ydh, throujflithegreat  organs of the British press, will tell those  in Britain what the children of the' Empire are doing on this side���that there  aie none'who have a greater love  for  their mother country or a greater rev-  erenie,  loyalty and affection for their  King.  .      Mr. Lefage's Response..  "Mr. LeSage, of the London Daily Telegraph, in responding slated that he  and his colleagues, in travelling across  Canada, had been struck with the confidence and hope which every one seemed  to have in the future of'the country. He  had been particularly taken with the  vast richness of the mineral sections of  British'Coinmbin.. They had visited the  LeKoi mine at Rossland, and later had  seen the smelters at Grand Forks and  Greenwood, and last and greatest of all  they had visited the remarkable gold-,  copper mines of Phoenix���.the Knob  Hill, Old Ironsides and Snowshoe.  As a London man he was particularly  pleased to meet three of the London directors of the Snowshoe mine that day,  'that property being owned in London.  He and his colleagues had come out to  this couutry in quest.of information.  They, were anxious to learn so that they  might instruct the people of the old  country as to the actual i-omlitions'exist-  ing here. They had seen gold milling  being carried on upon an enormous  scale, .the ore being actually quarried  Mr. Lumsden, of the Leeds Mercury,  after speaking of the pleasant trip across  Prominent Liberals Make a Tour of (be Bonn.  ���   dary, and Take In the Big Mines and  Smelters.  tell you that at the Granby mines an ex-  lhu colltini.nt  8!lid ���1|lt. ,,��� aml his col.  POSTOFFICE  25  pert has figured that his ore would last  HO years at '1,500 tons per day, and ho  means to live to see it out.  We think we can make a prolit and  hope so, but need to get a little more assistance from theC. P. P.���that railway  of which we are all justly pioud. They  have mothered the country, but they  must look after their children when they  come, and see that they can live and  support the parent, ami not just let then,  exist.  The railway on this branch has taken  from the Granby Co. for the year 1901  1-SSth of their total revenue over the entire system, but today they take from us  ��2 a "truck, or ��20 for hauling 1.0 cars  down an easy grade 20 miles.  Those who read at home the Phoenix  Pioneer and I he Greenwood Times, so  ably edited by Mr. W. B. Willcox and  Mr. Duncan Koss, know of the little  mountain city of Phoenix, so well looked  after by its mayor, Mr. Kumberger, the  father of Phoenix, whose cabin, I believe, was the first house in Phoenix;  and they also know of the good work doile  in the hospital by Dr. Gordon. Those  readers also know something of the  Boundary countiy, only so recently  opened up, but it is for you, gentlemen,  our guests, to leave with eyes still more  opened asto ilB possibilities. The Boundary country has this year put out a  greater tonnage than Rossland district���  30<i,471 tons to.September 0th, against  217,087 to same date in Rossland district.  In the early days it was thought that  in this country you only had to make a  hole in the ground to find a mine. This  resulted In that animal,  the  wild cat,  leagues 'made up lheir minds to see something of the mineral resources of this  part of Canada, so that they might remove many of the misconceptiiiis which  existed in England in regard lo the Name.  Until today lie had never had the slightest idea of the mineral wealth of Can  ada. He had heard much about it, but  had not believed what had been told to  him.' "~  After looking over the Knob Hill,  Snowshoe and other mines in the neighborhood, he had come to the conclusion  that there were veritable mountains of  ore here, the wealth of which seemed to  be simply incalculable. He had studied  geology and metallurgy himself to some  extent, and he, believed the statement  made by tlie mining men of this country  was correct,-viz., that they are practic  ing here the most economical methods of  producing and treating ore in tiie world.  It was certain that these mines required  a,large amount of capital to develop  them, and he, as a Briton, would naturally prefer that the capital invested in  them should be British capital. So far  as he could judge, it would be very many  years before these mines would be worked out.  Mr. Lumsden then went on to speak  of the wonderful fertility of Canada, of  its magnificent scenery and beautiful  climate. As to those, people at home  had very wrong ideas, and he should  feel it to be bis duty, as it would he a  pleasuie, to try upon his return to England, through the medium of the press,  tu remove sumo of those inisconcctitioiis.  Canada was capable of supporting mil-  (Coiitimted on lust page.)  This lias been a great week for visitr  ors in Phoenix, fiom the editors from  beyond the seas to the politicians from  Ottawa and Victoria. One and all  they-came, they saw, and were surprised. They had, read about the,,mammoth ore veins of the Boundary mines,  but it requires ocular demonstration to  convince them that cold type too often  fails to. convey an adequate idea of  what the actual resources'of this boundless Boundary country are.  Last Tuesday, after visiting tlie  smelters at Greenwood and Grand  Forks, and the large mines of Dead-  wood camp, a'party of stalwert liberals  came up the hill to Phoenix, lyideiitly  reserving the best and most important  till the last. The party consisted of  Senator Tenipleman, editor of the Victoria 'J'imes, and a member of Premier  Laurier's cabinet at Ottawa, A'ulay  Morrison, M. P. from New Westminster district, Smith Curtis,-.member of  the provincial legislature from tliii-  riding, and Duncan Ross, editor of the  Greenwood Times���all* of whom are  known as staunch liberals in Dominion  politics.  Accompanied by Mayor Rumberger,  R. B.Kerr, T. J. Hardy and Supt.  Williams, the visitors were taken over  and through the Knob Hill, mine, and  were given an idea of the extent of this  property, and how it is woiked. Inci  dentally the modus operandi of the  two per cent mineral tax, as far as it  affects low grade mines, was gone into,  and tlie visitors were conclusive!)  shown on the spot how unfair, unreasonable aid inequitable it is, all of which  they acknowledged. At the Snowshoe  mine they met Mr. Waterlow and Mr.  McMillan, and took the afternoon train  for the outside.  The needs of Phoenix, so far as customs facilities were concerned, were  brought to Senator Templeman's notice, and the great inconvenience of the  present arrangement, or rather lack of  arrangement, was explained. Hestat  ed that the matter was being taken up,  and that he would bear it in mind. Ii  requires merely an order in council to  create a sub-port of entry here, and the  work here could be attended to b\  Hugh McCutcheon, the Greenwood  collector,with little or no expense to  the government, and would he of the  greatest accommodation to importers  in Phoenix.  In view ofthe visit to this province  of the prominent conservative leaders  of the east at this time, it would seem  that the liberals are not asleep either,  and are keeping in touch with the different constituencies in British Columbia;  ANOTHER PROVIDENCE MINE DEAL.  Wm. Fowler Sold His Five-Eighths laterest.  lo Associates.  This week anothei deal in connection with tbe Providence mine, of Providence camp, was closed, by which  William Fowler sold out his five-eighths  iuteiest in the mine to his associates,  Win. Law .ind others, of Greenwood,  on a basis of $50,000 ' for the entire  claim.  It is stated that when the first deal  was made, a few months ago, Fowler  was paid $6,000 on account of the  puichase pi ice of a three-eighths intei-  est, and: this week some $6,500 more  was paid, the balance to be paid in installments out of the proceeds of the  shipments of the ore from the mine.  A short time ago a shipment of three  cars (43^ tons) of ore 'was  made to  the Trail smelter, giving net returns of  $143 per ton.    The property  is  now  being operated withc, a 'small  force of  men, and another car of ore   will .be  shipped in the near future.'  .  Mr; Fowler has been L working ; the  Providence for the last eight  or ten  months oh  a  lease and  bond  from  Howard C. Walters and R. Lewis Rut-  lerj of Spokane, and was soj successful  that Greenwood capitalists : took  hold  of the proposition a short  time  since  on the terms named.    \\T. S.

GREATEST IN  THE WORLD  Opinion of an Editor on Knob  Hill Mine;  HE   IS   NOT  A   NOVICE,   EITHER  Rev. V. M. Purdy Inducted.  Last night the Rev. V. M. Purdy  was formally inducted as pastor of St.  Andrew's Presbyteiian church of Phoenix, there being a number of visiting  clergymen of that denominatoin to assist in the special services that were  held. Dr. McRae, of Greenwood;  Rev. Thompson, of Midway; Rev. J.  R. Robertson, of Grand Forks, were  among those present from the outside.  After the services of induction the  Ladies' Aid of the church served refreshments, and a short social session  was held.  Mr. Purdy has made a most favorable impression in Phoenix, and a  successful pastorate is predicted t'<  him in this field.  Is Familiar With the Mines of British Columbia,  Thinks there Is Nothing to Equal this  Phoenix Property.  "There is no use of talking; the Knob  Hill mine.in this camp is, in my opinion, the greatest mine in the world."  This was the opinion expressed by  H. Mortimer Lamb, of Victoria, last  Monday to the Pioneer man. Mr.  Lamb, who is the editor of the British  Columbia Mining Record, the best publication of its kind in Canada, spent  last Sunday in this camp, and while  here took advantage of the opportunity  to see the mines of the Granby Co.  In the conduct of his monthly ,he  has always had the reputation of being  con'cervative, has discounted a good  many of the claims made by different  mines, and is known generally as a  careful and reliable writer. After a  trip through the Knob Hill and Old  Ironsides mines, he came to the conclusion above quoted, and was not slow in  expressing himself. It was evidently a  surprise to even such a well posted man  as he is.  Mr. Lamb is not a stranger to the  Houndary country, having started the  Boundaiy Creek Times in Greenwood  in 1S96, the paper later having been taken over by the present owner, Duncan  Ross. Since then Mi. Lamb has devoted his efforts to the making of a  first class mining monthly, and has  been successful in the publication of  the British Columbia Mining Record,  which he hopes to make a weekly beginning with the first of next Januaiy.  In the course of the last three weeks  a number of re|>orts have been in circulation that there was likely to be  more trouble at the Crow's Nest Pass  coal mines in the near future, and that  the company was importing men from  Pennsylvania. These reports have  proved to be without foundation in fact,  but to the uniformed have caused some  uneasiness.  This week the Pioneer man intei-  viewed George F. Dougherty of Greenwood, president of District Association  No. 6, Western Federation of Miners,  comprising the 20 unions in this province. Mr. Dougherty stated that  there was no occasion whatever for  uneasiness, and he is probably in as  good a position as any one in the Boundary to be in touch with the actual  conditions.  He stated that he had it on the veiy  best of authority that the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co. would certainly live up  to the letter of the agreement to go  back to the old system of time and  wages at the end of the present agreement, in October, if the coal miners so  desired. Manager Tonkin had made  this statement without reservation to  the smelter men, who wished to know  positively whether they could depend  on getting a continuous supply of coke.  Otheiwise, they would not have resumed opeiations.  In regaid to importing men from  Pennsylvania, which it is thought  would only make trouble, Mr- Dough-  ei ty showed the Pioneer man a letter  from thesecietary of the Fernie Miners  Union, stating that there was absolutley  no truth in the report.  This effectually disposes of the  rumors that have been in persistent  circulation, that the tiouble was only  bridged over for a while, and  might break out again in a shoit time,  and thus assures the Boundary mines  of an unbroken period of operation.  After spending a vacation of three  weeks at the coast, O. W. Dey, C. P.  R. agent at Phoenix, returned last  Wednesday. He left his mother at  Vancouver.  The Greenwood Times treats with a  good de 1! of facetiousness the hot air  dream of the Grand Forks correspondent that the Snowshoe smelter���ofthe  future���would be located at Grand  Forks.  Geo. S. Wateilow and Dr. H. Lewis  Jones, the English directors of the  Snowshoe mine, new in th.is camp,  will probably suend another week in  Phoenix before starting on their long  homeward journey.  Smith Bros, are pushing on with  their contract for the city school. The  stone basement work is about completed and Mr. Wilson, the sub-contractor,  has started the lading of thebrick work.  ���Revelstoke Mail.  Geo. W. Fraser has accepted the  position of master mechanic at the  Mother Lode mine. His brother  occupies a similar position with the  Granby mines. Mr. Fraser was for-  nieily also in Phoenix, but for several  months past has been employed at  Keswick, Cal.  One day th.is week the Snowshoe  mine shipped nine cars of ore to the  Greenwood smelter.  It is expected that the Sunset smelter, at Boundary Falls, will resume operations early next week.  Since the Granby smelter started  operations, a little over two ye.irs ago,  over 500.000 tons of ore have been  treated.  Some 100 men are employed nt the  Mother Lode  mine  and   270  at   the  Gianby mines,  the B. C. mine.

Such prosperity was never known  before in Manitoba, due to the sixty  million bushel wheat crop. The tide  of'prosperity is gradually working west.  By the fust of January next Bound-  aiy smelters will be treating over 3,000  tons of ore per day���four furnaces at  the Granby, two at the Mother Lode  and two at the Sunset smelter.  <An eastern, contemporaiy says Newfoundland is "drifting away, but the  funny man on the Toronto Globe adds  that navigators who run into it in a  fog always find it in the same place.  We are told each week that the  world's stock of copper is diminishing,  that the demand is increasing, and we  can see that the price is getting down.  There must be a screw loose somewhere  Piobably no nioie impoitant parly  lias visited the Boundary countiy this  year than the delegation of British  editors that enjoyed a quick trip through  this section this week. These gentlemen, who control the opinions of their  respective journals in England, Scotland and Wales, are at the head of theii  profession, representative men ineveiy  sen.se of the.word. In all but one or  two instances their papers are published in cities having upwards of half a  million population, from which their  standing at home can be gauged.  On their trip thiough   Canada  the  British  editois  have had  their eyes  opened wide more than once with what  they saw, from the broad and  maivel-  lous wheat producing prairies of Manitoba to the limpid waters of the   Pacific, but it is safe  to  say that   when  they reached the Boundary and realized what is being done here in the way  of cheap mining  and   smelting,   they  were even still more surprised, especially when they saw with their own eyes  the almost.inexhaustible mountains of  mineial lying at their very feef, the ore  being extracted by the most  improved  methods known   to  the  ingenuity of  man.  Well versed as they doubtless were  in a general way in regard to Canada's  icsouices, the visit to the Boundary  was a decided revelation to them. ' II  the magnitude and economy of the mining methods of Boundary operatois  excite the admiration of mining engineers of note, what will be' the effect on  a body of up to date newspaper ,men,  which these gentlemen undoubtedly are.  ��� Much Canadian capital is interested  in the Boundary���but there is wonderful opportunity for British capital to  take hold, and these molders of public  opinion from the other side ofthe water  will be favorably impressed with this  oppoitunity; which opinion will be reflected in the columns of their journals.  They will note that, although some old  countiy money has been sunk in Rossland mines���or rathei by the manipulators of Rossland mines���the chances  are still great for the investment of cap-  iial in the mining business in an intelligent, business-like way.  Most Respected���Ralph Smith received the same treatment fiom labor  as all the other great leaders have been  subjected to���ingiatitude. He is, however, the most respected man in the  Canadian labor movement today.���  Vancouver Independent.

When "given the figures in feet  they looked ..incredulous, but after literally walking a mile or two through  tnunels in solid ore, they.acknowledged  ���they had never,seen the like.*   .'.   :��� '  When we read of a fourteen mile  tunnel to be built in Cripple Creek ex-'  pressly to tap mineral ledges at great  depth, at an estimated cost of $5,000,-  000, perhaps R. A. Brown's scheme of  a 26-mile tunnel to tap many of the  great Boundary ledges will not be  thought so visionary in the years 16  come. -  ',   , Senator Templeman, who was in the  city Tuesday, thinks there is no reason  why Phoenix should not have some  sort of 'customs conveniences, Col-  , lector McCutcheon, tbe obliging official at Greenwood, is willing to come  here once a weeK for this purpose.  Now how long will it take the customs  department at Ottawa to take action in  the matter and relieve a long suffering  .public���almost without expense.  PROVINCIAL NOTES  Rossland has ordered the Father  I'at memorial ambulance.  Slocan City is to have a sawmill  that will employ 100 men.  \V. E. McLaughlin has been appoint  ed mining lecorder at Revelstoke.  A black bear, 300 pounds, was killed Sunday last in the streets of Nelson.  i hree laige Lardeau mines are now  connected with Ferguson by telephone.  The Revelstoke Water & Light Co.  has decided to accept the city's offer of  .��62,500 for the plant.  Improvements to the Rossland water  works will increase the supply by a  million gallons a-week.  At the Nelson custom house the collections for the month of August on  imports amounted to $15,087.31.  The Eagle says miners and business  men will erect a hospital at Ferguson,  towards which $1500 has been subscribed,  P. Welch & Co. have the contract  for dyking the reclamation farm at the  lower end of Kootenay lake, and have  sublet to Bums & Jordan.  Minnesota capitalists, with headquarters at Kaslo, are applying for a  charter for power to build tramways  from several mining camps to Kootenay lake.  Nelson-Conservatives recently met  and elected the following officers: President, Fred. Starkey; vice-president,  J.J. Malone; secretary, Chris. Morrison; treasurer, Jacob Dover; executive  committee, Uavid McBeath, J. E.  Annable, Fred. Irvine, W. A. Mac-  donald, Q. C, and Wm. McNabb.  per property near Kaslo, are to be  sumed.  There is talk of the erection of a  I'yritic smelter foi the Kootenay mine  at Rossland.  Rossland mines shipped 6,900 tons  of oie last week, making 217,000 tons  for the ytar,  The cost of smelting at the Le Roi  smelter, Northport, has been reduced  to $3.90 per ton.  There are now 21 miners' unions in  Alberta and British Columbia affiliated  with the W. F. of M.  It is believed that the era for cheap  coke for Boundary smelters is now  comparitively near at hand.  Under a new contract the Centre  Star and War Eagle are to ship 12,000  tons of ore per month to the Trail  smelter.  The Arlington in the Slocan has now  the largest showing' of ore, and the  highest grade, in the history of the  mine. Large specimens of it assay as  high as 15,000 oz. to the ton.  A still further improvement in the  value of the big shoot of ore how being  opened up on the 300-foot level of the  Stemwinder mine by the New Fairview  Corpoiation, is reported. It is stated  that the ore now runs $11 per ton in  gold.   What Will He Say.  Hon. E. G. Piior, minister of mines,  while in Phoenix told the editor ofthe  Pioneer that he was in favor of party  lines in piovincial politics. ' While in  Cranbrook the same gentleman told the  editor of The Herald that he was not  in favor of party lines. Is it the difference in altitude or association that  causes this divergent expression of  opinion on an important subject ?���  Cranbrook Herald.  It's now up to the gallant Colonel to  expliin how this is thus. ��� Phoenix  Pioneer.  The Colonel has evidently put" his  foot in it, or he changed his mind aftei  conferring with Dave Carley at Nelson.  ���Cranbrook Herald.  Its do'lars to doughnuts that the  Colonel will smile when  he sees this  collection, and will  remark,   "(.entle  men, this is one on me."

'.' ��������   ���' '' '���.':  In the last issue of the Pioneer was  a communication from a "Working  ���Man," which purported to criticise the  Lord's Day Alliance movement, Asa  matter of fact, the Old; Jackdaw sub-  mils that it was no criticism whatever,  as the writer gets entirely off the subject, roaming the realms of. so-called  socialism.; He seems to think that  those jnterefted in the movement  should try first to raise the standard of  wages which the average .working man  receives.  This, as the Old Jackdaw under  stands it, is not the idea 01 object of  the Loid's Day Alliance. It is simply  lo tiy and get the woiking man to have  oiie day out of seven to do what he  pleases'with. Even the clergy, who  naturally favor this movement, do not  insist on a man's going to church on  that seventh day. Fiisl, they say,  give him the seventh day, and if he  chooses to go to church, all well and  good, but il'noi, give it to him anyway.  There are thousands that will agree  with this way of putting it.  Incorporating Fees.  .

If a man has occasion to  go In and out half a dozen times, he  must pay every tlmo. One who has  dined with a friend must, If he stay  late, pity four cents to get out of his  friend's house, and four more to got  Into his own. A telegram In the night  necessitates." the,-payment''Of the tax,  before the boy can enter,  The house-master also collects and  keeps duplicate copies of the forms on-  which every individual in the house  must report to the police his age,  birthplace and religion, his exact occupation, and other personal details  which the Austrian authorities insist  upon knowing. Nor does the power of  this important personage end even  here. From the little guard-room  which he occupies at the foot of the  stairs he sees every one Who gc?es In  or out. He ascertains with < amazing  accuracy the.amount of each tenant's  Income, the events of his family life,  and the character of his visitors. His  far-reaching power.ennbles him to.ter-  rorlze every servant in the house into  enterlng his intelligence department,  and thus be spies on the-Innermost  life of the subjects in his five-storey  kingdom. '������ . ���.- ... '' '.':..,  In some cases' the house-master Is.  more powerful than in others. ' An  English resident was obliged to move  from ah apartment that he particularly liked because he could not venture to speak ��� with any degree' of  sharpness to the man at the door, even  when.the man was remiss In, his. duties. The flat was owned by a railway, belonging to the State. This made  the house-master a State official, an  Insult to whom ts a very serious offence In Vienna. A reprimand for delaying letters would be construed Into  an insult, and the Englishman deemed  it wise to move to other quarters.  ; -  Thousands of people in Vienna live  In such terror of the house-master  that, It Is said, they never make an  apple-fcart without giving' him half.  :   H.ave Women Intuition?  ���'. In a recent magazine article William  8. Walsh discusses the question, 'T?p.YS  Women Intujtion?" He does notthrow  bouquets to feminine vanity, for h��  writes: .'.' ' -;.' .':���. ���:���'>:'.  literature 3s the final expression, of  human thought. .If women can';lay  claim to a special faculty of Intuition,  why. do they not manifest It in their  writings? Intuition, if It means anything, means:; the faculty that gets  down to the germ of actions and chari  acterisflcs and focuses external traits  Into a central verity recognizable���tP.  the general public. Now there are  more female writers than male. .No  womanipoet has' ever written an;In-  evltable line, a line, that flashes spontaneously out of the unknown and  casts an illuminating light upon the  abyss. ^ Woman has added practically  nothing to our stock of .familiar'quotations. Take down your Bartlett or  your anthology, and you;may be!surprised to find that from Mrs. Browning  to Mrs. Meynell women ������-'��� have never  coined a phrase which has'passed Into  the common currency of speech., Mrs.  Browning has Indeed written fine lines,  but nothing of hers can be said to have  become a household word.'  Nor has any woman novelist created  any character that la: generally recognised as typical. George Eliot has  conic closest with her Tito Melema and  ftlrs. Poyaer. You would appeal only  to the educated few If you desqrlbed a  person as a Tito or a Poyser. But call  aman a Don Quixote, a,Micawtoer, a  Doghcrry, it Falstaff, a Colonel New-  come, a Bllfll, a Parson Adams, a Bob  Acres; cull a woman a'Mrs. Malaprop,  a Becky Shnrp, a Beatrice, a Diana  Vernon, a Meg Mcrrilles, and even-the  Illiterate will mentally classify the individual as you wish him or her toi bo  classified. '".       ,"���  "Ah, but," you Bay, "In real life women are the true Intuitions. They size  up a man, er a woman at &.\ glance.  They arc never mistaken when they  trust to their Instincts." '.-'.'.in''  I can only testify to my own experience. I havo, riot found that women's  6iiap Judgments of, character are Imbued' with any special verity. They  form likes ordlslikes quicker than man,  does, .because they are quicker on' the  trigger of- conjecture. They can dhiy  be one of two things^���right or wrong.  If time provis that they are right,.as  they must be in .Ifty per cent, of cases,  the right guess, is remembered and  treasured up by the slower-minded man  as an extraordinary instance of intuition.   The wrong guess Is forgotten.  EASTERN  "... ���'.���' .'      ESTABLISHED 1859.,v..'.';������,.":  CAPITAL;-,,---: - ���'.:$2^006,600~x  CAPITA^ PAID-UP- $i)95s;22x.

ZIMHERMAN'S  0O4����99*9��)9e'9*9***4o9*9O��<9  A Jiunter who was trailing after  bear mc-at in British Columbia reports to the "Western Sportsman"  an experience which he calls a  "narrow graze." If the incident happened as the hunter, tells it, it was indeed a narrow graze; but one cannot  help suspecting that some of the invigorating ozone of the North-West has  got into the story. Nevertheless, it is  worth hearing.  "It was warm and dry, and along  in the middle of the afternoon I began to pine for rest and a pipe. It  was all quiet and no traces of game,  and so when I'd had a comfortable  smoke I stretched out for a nap.  "It must have been an hour later  that I woke up and found myself covered with two feet of leaves snug as  the babes in the wood. I was all  tucked In that cosy that nobody else  could have done it but a cougar, and  most likely a female cougar at that.  It occurred to me with some force that  I'd been filed away for future reference, arid that I hadn't waked up  any too soon. It didn't soothe rr.e to  figure on that cougar stowing me away  as a dog hides a bone.  "It seemed-that the best thing [or  me to do was to countermine that cougar's mine, as It were. So I hunted  up a log about my size and covered It with the leaves^-a nice fat  hump on the ground. Then I shinned  a tree close by, assuring- myself beyond any,doubts or peradventures that  nobody had meddled with the working  of my repeater.  "The cougar came in such a shoit  time as to show, how fortunate it was  that I had waked up when I did, and  with her, as I had calculated, were a  choice lot of young ones, She had left  a dinner located and 'flad been off to  get her family.  "Well, that cougar circled around the  pile of leaves for a matter of minutes,  crouching and picking a nice select  place to spring from. AVhen she got  satisfied and made the leap she went  through Ihe air tremendp.is, throwing  the leaves In a whirlwind and scratching und snarling. It was some of a  shock when she found the log, but sho  didn't display any disappointment. She  Just took the scent and came to the  foot of my tree and looked up, real  venomous.  "It seemed to her an awkward job  to handle, I having my gun ready so,  and the cougar had an Inspiration,  She went to a tree about ten feet away  and started to go up. She was after  that meal and not to be discouraged  by any trllles. It was her Idea to  climb up atiove rne on the other tree  and then bring me down with a flying  leap.  "I didn't loseany more time witn experiments or speculations, but let her  have it the first time sho came tound  the tree. The ball went through her  Jaw and breast, and the varmint wont  to the ground. The young ones wors  running around, and I knocked them  over, too, with the gun.  "Since then I haven't gone to sleep  in the woods so careless and casual  like."  Mrs. Antonio de Navarro, better  known as : Mary Anderson, ha3  written a striking preface to�� Clara  Morris's "Life on the Stage," which  is on the eve of publication In  England. In a glowing tribute to  the American actress, airs, de Navarro declares: "She is the greatest  emotional actress I ever saw," and  adds the significant warning to stage-  struck girls: "I hope .she who  writes. thla .-work will help to stem the  tide of girls who so blindly rush into a  profession of which they are Ignorant,  for which they are unfitted, and In  which, dangers unnumbered lurk on all.  sides. If, with Clara Morris's power  and charm, so much had to be suffered,  what Is, what must be, the lot of so  many mediocrities who pass the same  fires with no reward in the end?"

Galer,  of the Granby office stall, started Wednesday on a three weeks' vacation,  which he will spend in Denver, Co.,  where he was formerly located.  Gone to Ranching���-Andrew Williamson has leased the Spencer ranch  of 16o acres for a term of lour years  and taken possession. This ranch is  several miles below Phoenix at the foot  of Boundary mountain, and is known  as a fine piece of property.  there will be no more labor troubles  whatever. East Kootenay generally  is pretty lively, while business in the  Calgary section is excellent.  City and District Notes  Mining Institute ��� The British  Columbia branch of the Canadian Mining Institute met and was organized at  Nelson this week, when several interesting papers on mining matters were  read. There was no representatives  from the Boundary as far as learned.  The institute did not fail to set forth a  most vigorous objection to the present  two per cent mineral tax.  Is a Fine Orator ���Rev. Alfred  Rowland, L. L. B., B. A., pastor of  .the second largest Congregational  church in the world, of London, will  airive in Phoenix today, and will preach  in the Congregational church here tomorrow evening. He has the reputation of being one of the finest pulpit  orators in the denomination, and is an  old friend of the local pastor, Rev.  Jasper Hard.  Captured the Chinese ��� U. S.  Customs officer, R. Vail, who is stationed, near Cascade a"t the Boundary line,  this ,week broke up a gang of Chinese  who were working the "underground  railway" route into Uncle Sam's land,  through one Sam Sing, a wily celestial  in the laundry business in Cascade.  Some 15 or 20 of the Orientals were  captured, and will shortly be on the way  back to the Flowery Kingdom, under  the Geary law.

The British people did 110I  pioperly appreciate the impurtaru-p of  Canada fiom an imperial point of view.  ''Tbe Minlrg Industry."  Dr. U. Lewis Jones, of London, Knir  land, one of Ihe directors of the .Snow  shoe Co.. said that it was his privilege t<  propose Ihe toast of "The Mining fndus  try," in order to let loo.'-e the volume of  information for the inm notion of (ii  gentlemen who were tlieir jiu.-s'ls today.  He would content h'in=.'lf by fayinn  how proud Phoenix should be that it  had been visited by these gentlemen  He.was here two bhort years since, and  could ste the tremendous changes thai  bad gone on in this time. Their visiiort  would be able to say that there was at  least genuine mining in British Columbia. They saw here mining and .smelting carried on upon a colossal scale, and  it was most important to get, these facts  properly placed before the British public,  in order to remove the tendency which  exists to disbelieve that there was anv-  thing great in the way of miningout here  Mr. Anth ny J. McMillan, managing  director of the .Snowshoe, in responding  said that they were exceedingly pleased  to see here today 'representatives of th��  British press. If only the nublie in the  mother land knew more about the vast  resources of this country they would be  more eager to invest capital here, tathei  than to investitiiieountrieswlieietben-  waB less security than under the Cana  ��� Man flag. There has been a sense of disappointment in London at the returns  received from the rnines in British Columbia. Much of this has been attributable to bad management in London  rather than to the mines themselves  The output of ore from these mines was  steadily increasing.  The mineral wealth of British Colum<  bia was spread over a very wide area  In the Rossland district, 50 miles east of  Phoenix, there weie large deposits of ore,  and already, about 1,000,000 tons has  been marketed, much of it at a substantial profit.- Further north, in the Slo  can district there were Ihe high grade  silver lead properties. These mine."  were smaller but richer than in this district. Still farther lo the north, in Cariboo and Omenica, placer and hydraulic  mines have been worked for 30 or 40years  and have yielded handsome returns to  those who had invested in them. Still  further to the northwest there was the  Yukon country, the output of which  .has been phenomenal during the short  period it has been opened up. But the  greatest mineral section of British Columbia was undoubtedly the one in which  they were now situated, viz., in ihe div  triqts of Kootenay and Yale.  A little over two years ago about 4,000  tons had been extracted from the mines  in the Boundary district, of which Greenwood, Grand Forks and Phoenix were  the principle centers, whilst today an  aggregate of about 760,000 tons line been  marketed. At the present time there is,  in tliln dis'ric.t. mines altogether capable  of turning o>it 3.000 Ions of ore per day,  or at the rate of about 1,000,000 Urns per  year, and Ihcie are smelters in the district capable of dealing with thin enormous output, and other smelters were  contemplated.  The gentlemen of the prebs Intel this  morning l>een through the Knob Hill  mine, piobably oneof the greatest mines  in the world.   Unfortunately, time did  GOOD NEWS...  ���FROM  THE���  PEOPLE'S STORE  Until further notire I will  sell Hazledeas Bottee   .  in bulk at U cents per lb.   Sugar, $550 per hundred.

These were gie��t mines, which took a  long time to develop     When developed  they would undoubtedly yield good returns to the capitalists who had invested  in them.    He hoped   that the railway  companies and tha government would do  their best to help along ihe mining industry, which, in its earlier stages, at any  rate, needed all the asMstance it could  receive fiom these and other sources.  Wm. Yolen Williams Speaks.  Mr. W. Y.   Williams, nupeiintcndent  of the Knob Hill and Old IronsidesDiines  at Phoenix, also responded to the toast,  and said that he left his native land of  Wales 32 yeais since, and he had worked  in all the'principal mining districts in  the United States', but nowhere had he  Been i-uch enormous oro   bodies as in  Phoenix.   When he took charge of these  mini's four yearb ago, all the develop'  ment woik consisted of a tliaft 100 feet  deep and a small drift ol about 26  feet,  whilst today tiny had three milt-Bof underground development.   At present, on  account of iibhortuguofcokeat the smelter, they  were only turning out about  750 tons of ore per day, Lut this woul  soon be remedied, and then, working at  their full capanity, they could  turn  out  1,500 or 1,000 tons of ore per day.    The  huge ore bodies of Ihis district were practically inexhaustible.  Some of the slopes  in tho  Iront-ides mine would compare  very favorably with those in  any mine  on the Ainericau continent.    They had  stopes 40U feet w ide.  They were nbeady mining 700 feet  vertically fiom the surface, and in addition to this they had prospected by  means of a diamond drill to fiuther  depth of 1.000 feet, and they now knew  that the ore existed 1,700 feet below the  surface. Knowing tliic, they had commenced the erection of a much larger  compressor plant, which, when coniplet  ed, would be the largest in Canada, and  when this new* plant was in operation it  would be as easy to mine 5,000 tons per  day as it was now to mine 1,500 tons. It  musk be remembered that in order to develop these great mines a large amount  of money was needed, and also a onsid  eruhle amount of lime, blithe felt confi  dejit that the money so invested would  return good | rofits.  Judge W. R. Williams, of the Dornin  ion Copper Co., also replied to the toast,  and spoke of tho work that had been  done with his company's properties in  Phoenix, on .which over a mile of devel  opinent had been accomplished.  Mayor Rmnberger, of Phoenix, in proposing the health of Mr Waterlow, the  chairman, 'spoke of the gr^at iutereat  Mr. Wateilow ami his friends hud taken  in this country. He slated that when  he, as fhayor of Phouix, had trieir to gel  the Bihish.editoifl to come here, had  wired that theie was more ore produced  in the Bound, ryjthau in all the other  campi in-British Collmibiapnt together,  De did not.think that the editors would  feel that he had m its tasted the case.  Mr Wateilow, in resprn ling, staled  how pleased he was to meet the editors-  anu the people of l'hoenix and district.  He also said, that he had doi-e his best,  both in London, where he met the premier of-British Columbia, and in Victoria, with ihe other ministers, to impress upon them the importance of repealing the two per cent ore tax. Any  taxation there might be should be levied  upon the profits and not upon the in  dustry itself.
