Loss In Wages Estimated at  $25,000 for August.  LIMITED.  ^^^MM***��f*��*��a^���^l  Now is the season of the year  for securing fruit for preserving, and  as we have fresh shipments, direct  from the Orchards, almost daily, we  can make the prices right.  Peaches,  Pears,   Plums,  Apples  and Many Other Varieties.  We also have JABS in any quantity, Pints and Quarts, and the  Sugar to do them up with.  Send us your order at once���we'll do  the rest and do it right-  Within the last week more sets of  resolutions have been passed by public  bodies regarding the coke shortage at  the smelters, for transmission to the  minister of mines at Victoria, including  those by the city council of Rossland,  the miners of Summit Camp, Greenwood Miners' Union and the Boun-  ary Falls Union���making at least  eight sets thus far passed and sent to  Hon. Richard McBride. These resolutions are practically similar in many  respects, asking the government to  open the coal lands in East Kootenay  and calling on the powers that be to  stop the exportation of coke till British  Columbia smelters are. fully supplied,  as provided for in the charter of the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.  Summit miners met last week Friday,  and passed a strong set of resolutions,  which were drawn up by a committee  consisting of George McLeod, Charles  Bermett and Chas. Mee, and included  a scathing arraignment of G. G. S.  Lindsay, manager of the big coal company at Fernie.  The resolutions of the Greenwood  miners contain the important statement that the coke shortage at one  smelter, that of the" British Columbia  Copper Co. at Greenwood, during the  month of August, amounted to 2,750  tons, causing the company to lay off an  average of 100 men for the entire  month, and thus entailing a loss of  over $10,000 in wages to employees:  If to this were added the shortage at  Trail and Granby smelters, it is believed it would easily amount to $25,-  000 in loss of wages to miners and  smeltermen.  It is stated that the big coal company has 240 coke ovens at Carbonado,  in the Crow, that are not being used at  all, and that the Crow's Nest Coal Co.  has ample oven capacity, if it were all  Used... and    railway , care   were - always  available, to supply all the smelters of  Yale and Kootenay with coke, and  still have something of a surplus.  Nothing has yet been heard from the  report which R. F. Tolmie, deputy  minister of mines, was to make to the  government regarding the coke shortage, after his personal investigations  a couple of weeks ago. In addition to  this Ralph Smith, M.P., of Naniamo,  on behalf of the Dominion government, has been making an investigation of the conditions.  Summing up, it may be said that, in  some ways, it looks brighter for a better  supply of coke, as an immediate result of the publicity given the matter  and the investigations made, although  the British Columbia Copper Co.'s  smelter is still <*itting on the ragged  edge for coke���in fact, the edge being  nearly worn off.  J. A. McKinnon, of Rossland, came  in Wednesday, to spend a few days in  camp. .-.���..'  I J. L. Martin and wife returned Sunday from a trip to the,! Coeur d'Alene  country in Idaho.     V  Duncan Ross, M.'P., has been on  another trip through the. vwestern part  of his constituency.   '*������''  Local Manager A. ^f W; Hodges, of  the Granby Co., haii been down to  the coast this week,  J "'  Sam White, the t/istructor for the  Eagles brass band,'arrived from Aberdeen, Wash., early .this week.  John H. Fox, of Nelson, travelling  freight agent of the*C. P. R., came in  on Thursday on his monthly trip.  Charles Webster, of Fernland, near  Midway, has been spending a week or  two in Boundary's rnining metropolis.  P. W..Gordon; of Nelson, representing the Standard -Oil's Canadian  branch, was here yesterday, visiting the  mining offices.  Charles M. Campbell, chief of the  Gianby mines engineering staff, returned Wednesday :from a trip to  Denver and Winnipeg.  Mrs. O. N. Galer, who, has been  away for two or ,thr&e; months, visiting  Mr. Galer's mother* in Denver, re  turned last Sunday evening.  Chief Engineer Kennedy, of the V,  V. & E., accompanied by J. E. Gallagher, who did the' construction work  on the Granby's Victoria shaft spur,  were here again early in the week.  D. L. McElroy, proprietor of the  Phoenix-Greenwood stage line, left  Thursday for a month's visit to Areola,  Sask., and vicinity, where he owns  valuable land.  Bill Hanna, formerly of Phoenix,  according to the prince Rupert Empire, recorded the first mineral location  to be put on record in the mining  recorder's office in that place.  J. E. W. Thompson, wife and  daughter returned Monday fro*n  spending several "months at Moose  Jaw and Oxbow, Sask. Mr. Thompson has disposed of his business at  Moose Jaw.  ''.". Dr."-'''GeorgerS.r^Gordon, ���formerly  located here, came in Saturday for a  day or two, being on his way to Nova  Scbtiij but was callfed back-10 Victoria  by il|ness of a friend. The doctor  visited Japan since leaving here last  spring.  R. A. Fraser, foreman at the Snow-  shoe mine, went down to his ranch  near Spokane yesterday, to spend a  time. A week or two ago a heavy iron  door fell on Mr. Fraser, hurting his  side, and he has not been quite himself since.  AUGUST PAY  WAS $95,000  Healthy   Sum  Distributed Here.  Boundary Mining Notes  Total in Boundary Approximated $180,000.  I^ast Tuesday was the regular  monthly payday at the Granby and  Dominion mines in this camp, while  the 15th is the date of payment at the.  Consolidated Co.'s Snowshoe, War  Kagle and other mines. The coke  shortage during August cut down th-.'  number of men employed somewhat,  making the amount paid out this week  rather less, probably by $15,000, than  it would have been. However, the  total runs to about $95,000 in Phoenix, which shows things might be much  worse. As larger forces are now once  more being employed, there is every  reason to think that September's roll  will run well over $100,000.  ', Approximately, the following are the  amounts paid out by the several companies in Phoenix this week for  August wages:  Men.  500  280  170  Amount  $50,000  28,000  r7,ooo  Granby        Dominion Co   Consolidated Co.  August total . . .. 950 $95,000  The total of the Granby's payroll at  mines and smelter was probably $80,-  000, while that of the Dominion Co.  at both mines and smelter was close  to $50,000.. The payroll of the  British Columbia Copper Co. at mines  and smelter, $40,000, would bring the  total of the payroll of the Boundary  mines and smelters, including the  smaller properties, to $180,000 for  August.        Boundary Side Lights  mmmmmm\  ENJOYED TRIP TO  THE OLD COUNTRY  First   Visit   in   the  Last   30  Years.  William Delahay, customs officer in  Phoenix, returned late last week from  a trip to his native home in South  Wales, being accompanied by Mrs.  Delahay. It was 30 years since Mr.  Delahay had seen the home of his  youth, and he greatly enjoyed renewing old acquaintances, although, of  course, he found things much changed  in the last score and, a half of years.  His father, now an elderly man of  nearly 80 years, was delighted to see  them both, and to hear by word of  mouth something of British Columbia.  While in Wales Mr. Delahay and  wife made a call on the sister of Mrs.  Jack Miller, whose husband is managing director of the world famous smelting works at Swansea, where a vast  uumber of men are employed, and  which treat high grade ores from all  over the world, principally from South  and Central America. They were  most hospitably received in Swansea,  the place being but 23 miles from the  old home.  After spending three weeks in London and taking in the sights of the  greatest city in the world as far as possible in the short time at their disposal,  they returned by the same route they  went, namely, C P. R. all the way,  and were glad once more to get back  to Phoenix.  Leonard Vaughan.one ofthe successful ranchers of the Kettle river valley  near Grand Forks, was in the city  yesterday with Mrs. Vaughan, he hav-  large realty interests here. He states  that crops generally Jin his section will  be excellent.  Robert Densler, who recently returned from a trip to his native town,  Zurich, Switzerland;-has been spending a few days in camp from Spokane.  Mr. Densler was one of the locators of  the Snowshoe, War. Eagle, Brooklyn,  Curlew and other well known mines in  this camp.  George P. Larson, superintendent of  the mineral exhibit at the Spokane Interstate fair, accompanied by his  brother, was in camp Wednesday, and  arranged with the mining men here for  a representative exhibit from Phoenix.  He also visited Nelson, Kaslo, Sandon,  Rossland, Greenwood and (..rand  Forks, spending altogether exactly two  hours and seventeen minutes in  Phoenix.  The Yale-Columbia Lumber Co.  and Bowman Lumber Co. have taken  off their surveyors from the timber  'limits up the North Fork and West  Fork of Kettle river, and the Cascade  mill is running on day shift only. The  slackening of the demand for lumber  in the northwest is said to be the  cause, and in turn being due to cropf  not coming up to expectations.  Scandinavians Will Affiliate.  The organization .in Phoenix known  as the Scandinavian Brothers is affiliating with the general society of that  order, known as the Scandinavian Aid  and Fellowship Society, the headquarters of which are located at Wakefield, Michigan. Adolf Nelson, deputy  organizer for the society, arrived in  Phoenix this week, and last night was  proceeding with the reorganization in  Phoenix as the Pioneer was going to  press. The list here now has upwards  of 65 names thereon, and is growing.  This society has between 3,000 and  4,000 members in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, and  this will be the first lodge organized  outside of the states named. Mr.  Nelson also expects to visit Rossland,  Spokane and Seattle on a similar  mission.

This change  went into effect last Monday, the inward and outwatd b^und Nelson trains  passing at Eholt.  Grand Forks now has a co-operative  store in operation.  It is said that a deal is pending for  the Beaverdell townsite, the price  being around $16,000.  The business of the Yale-Columbia  Lumber Co. in Greenwood has been  taken over by Herbert Bunting.  There was a small fire in Midway  Wednesday, and E. A. Hain, the postmaster there, dropped dead from heart  failure.  Oliver Bordreau, aged 60 years, was  killed last week Wednesday, by falling  from a third story window in Anaconda.  The fruit crop in the Kettle river  valley is an excellent one this year,  and many carloads will be shipped to  the northwest.  It is understood that the prospects  of a French colony from the territories  taking up considerable land west of  Midway, are exceedingly bright.  Notices of the annual reunion and  dinner of the Kettle River and South  Okanagan Pioneers' Society, state that  it will be held in Eagles' hall, Grand  Forks, next Monday, September 16th.  R. G. Sidley, of Sidley's, and Miss  N. W. Fausset, of Belfast, Ireland,  were recently married in Greenwood,  by Rev. J. Leech-Porter, of St. Jude's  church. They will make their home  at the extensive ranch of the groom,  some miles west of Midway.  From reports current, the beautiful  townsite of Cascade is to be turned  into fruit farms, and will be irrigated.  There are many hundreds of acres thus  available. George K. Stocker, now of  Spokane, is the largest shareholder in  the Cascade Development Co., the  owner of the property.  According to report, there were  things doing this week at a meeting of  the Grand Forks city council, and, in  the course of events, Ernest Miller,  formerly city solicitor, mixed up in a  personal encounter with Aid. Hardy,  the lawyer seeming to have the best of  it until the combatants were finally  separated.  Monday morning the body of "Dead  Shot Jim," his name being James  Welcher, was found Moating in Curlew  lake. He attended the Labor Day  picnic the week before and had not  been seen alive since. He was well  known in the Boundary, having claims  in Franklin camp. He had relatives  at Tekoa, Wash.  The Kootenay presbytery met in  Grand Forks on Tuesday of this week,  Rev. Samuel Lundie, of Phoenix, thr  secretary, being present, as well as the  moderator, Rev. II. R. Grant, ol  Fernie. Cranbrook, Nelson, Grand  Forks, Greenwood, Cascade, Nakusp,  Slocan and Vancouver were also represented, the latter by Rev. C. A. Wilson, the newly appointed superintendent of missions for the province  The regular business coming before  the presbytery was transacted.  Snowshoe shipped 1,420 tons to  Trail this week, and 1,230 tons to B.  C. Copper smelter.  A carload of concentrates will shortly  be shipped from the Cariboo-Mc-  Kinney to the smelter.  Surface operations at the War Eagle  mine have been somewhat interfered  with this week by the bad weather.  A fine lead of ore has been encountered on the Rob Roy, one ofthe  Sally group, on Wallace mountain,  West Fork.  Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter at  Boundary Falls is running at full blast,  having perhaps 2,000 tons of coke on  hand or enroute.  A force of 50 men is employed at  the Dominion Copper Co.'s Sunset  mine under Foreman Hewer, and  some 200 tons of ore daily are being  shipped.  Shareholders in the Boundary this  week received the first dividend checks  from the British Columbia Copper  Co., which were' sent out last week  from the head office in New-York.  This week the B. C. Copper,, Co.'s  sm?lter has still been 'running close  for coke, heing barely able to keep two  furnaces in steady operation, and temporary banking is a not infrequent ex-  pediment.  The North Fork wagon road has  been extended to the Maple Leaf  mine in Franklin camp, where mine  buildings are being erected, and where  good ore is being opened up, according to report.  Work is going along rapidly with  the installation of the Curlew crusher  by the Granby Consolidated, the  machinery having arrived several days  ago from the Jenckes Machine Co.; of  Sherbrooke, Quebec.  This week the B. C. Copper smelter  treated 8,520 tons or ore, 4,303 tons  being from the Mother Lode, i74t6ns  from the Napoleon, '20 tons from  Lone Star, and 4,023 tons from Snow-  shoe and other custom ores.  James Schiewe has two shifts employed at the Sudbury mine, Dead-  wood camp, where an incline shaft is  being sunk on the ore body, and is  now down nearly-too feet. The-prop-  erty is equipped for economical work  with a 30-h.p. electric hoist.  124,504 TONS  FOR AUGUST  Much Less Than For  July.  Dominion Copper Co. Shows  Good Increase.  About a car load of blister copper is  being shipped daily now by the Granby  smelter, owing to the fact that eight  furnaces have been in commission this  week. At the company's mines business is going on ��� at - fullest capacity,  about 550 men being employed.  Last week the new electric compressor, which was ordered some eight  or ten months ago from the Allis-Chal-  mers-Bullock, Ltd., by the Crescent  Mines, Ltd., arrived in Greenwood,  and is now being installed as: rapidly  as possible at the company's mine,  being of seven drill capacity. Power  will be furnished by the Greenwood  City Waterworks Co.  As soon as rawhiding can be done,  ore will be shipped from the silver  claims of the Lightning Peak Gold  Mining Co , which owns a group of  eight high grade properties in Thunder  Hill camp, some 20 miles north of  Franklin camp. Over i.coo feet of  work has been done on the properties,  some of the ore being said to run up  to $900 per ton in silver. The ore  will go out by the Arrow lake route,  thence by steamer and rail.  Details of the month's ore shipments  from Boundary mines for August, reflect the effect of the coke shortage at  the district smelters, the total being  about 25,000 tons less than for the  month of July. In July 150,000 tons  were mined and shipped, while August  shows but 124,504 tons as a total output of ore.  Granby's -lessened output alone  amounts to the difference in the two  months, the Granby smelter having  been entirely out of commission for  fduf or five days. B. C. Copper's is  within a few tons of being the same,  namely, 25,000 tons. Dominion Copper shows a healthy increase of over  5,000 tons over July, but Snowshoe,  which ships to the Trail smelter as  well as to the B. C. Copper works, is  about,5,000 tons less than the previous  month:  Following are the figures from tne  several Boundary mines in detail, for  August, in tons:  54.077  25.225  Granby mines  B.C.

William Manson, of Nanaimo, formerly provincial secretary, was a visitor  in Phoenix early this week, being on a  trip to the most important points in  the province on behalf of the chief  commissioner of lands and works. He  is seeking information as to the wages  paid throughout the province, so that  the department can adjust the scale of  wages which is paid on public works  that are carried on from time to time  all over the province. Among the  places visited are Fernie, Cranbrook,  Rossland, Nelson, Phoenix and Revelstoke.  Will have  first  show Sept. iSth.  lot  of fall  hats  Miss McDonald.  to  IV02  September 14.

The change in running time this  week on the See-Pea-Are will give us  practically the old winter schedule of  former years, and in some respects -is  an improvement j.on ,,the:.., summer,  schedule that is in effect usually in the  Boundary. Evidently the officials of  this gigantic railway system have an  idea that winter is almost on deck in  the Boundary, and are getting ready to  combat the troubles of nearly a year  ago in this district on the transportation  lines.

What a beautiful (thing it is for  brothers to dwell together in unity, as  the .Good Booki says. We are reminded of this by an incident that not  infrequently occurs in a town notrta*  thousand miles from Phoenix, where,  two weekly papers are published. Us-;  ually two papers.sunder such circunv  stances, are not hunting around to find  opportunities to help each other out;  but in the case referred to, every week  or two one of the papers will loan the  other a column or two of type. This  gets double action, as it were, on the  typesetting, and not only that; the marr|  who reads both papers has the privilege'  of reading the same matter twice in  papers of entirely different political  complexion in the same week. Thus,'  it can be seen that; there are manifest  advantages in the system���which is a  great improvement over the .too usual  custom of fighting like cats and dogs  and cutting each others'-'throats .^hen  it comes to figuring on job work.  , new to diroot tho treatment of m many:  casmm may mako application to him  duriag the, sammor month*,, without  ahajrg*.

Recommends Peruna.  "I want to recommend Perana to all  who are similarly nfllicted."  Tho principal remedy which Dr.  Hartman relios upon in curing catarrhal  diseases of women is Peruna.  Hundreds of women sufferers find  Peruna a household remedy. Many of  these women have written letters of  thanks for the benefit they have obtained.  Dr. Hartman's Experience.  As is well known, Dr. Hartman is the  President of the Hartman Sanitarium,  an institution which has a department  devoted to the treatment of female diseases.  He is thus brought to seo a great many  of such cases every year, the most of  whom return to their homos to complete their treatment by correspondence.  Those wishing to become patients by  correspondence should address Dr. S. B.  Hartman, President of the Hartman  Sanitarium Columbus, Ohio.
