Morrin, Thompson & Co,  Grocers and Hardware Merchants.  .Monday, October 26, has been  definitely decided on as the date for  the general elections with nominations  a week earlier, on October 19  This decision was reached at a  meeting of the cabinet Wednesday  afternoon, at which the ministers in  attendance were: Sir Wilfrid Laurier,  lion. R.VV.Scott, Hon.'L.P. Brodcur,  1-Ton. Radolphe Lemieux and Hon.  George P. Graham. Cruiously enough  it was probably ihe last meeting which  will be attended by Hon. K. \Y. Scott,  who will ere the ministers gather together a^ain be succeeded as secretary  of state by Charles Murphy K.C.  ���The proclamation dissolving the  present parliament was signed by His  Excellency Earl Grey on lhe eve of his  departure for the west.  Apparently the ministers were pretty  well decided as to lhe date, for they  vvere only in session a couple of hours  and disposed of other business as well.  In all predictions made as to .the  date of lhe elections, the date chosen  has not been mentioned for the reason  probably that no one supposed that a  Monday would be chosen. In selecting the first woi king day of the week  the government has been guided by  the consideration that it will give com  mercial men, and o'hers whose business keeps them away from home, a  chance to put in their vote on election  day, being in business circles practically a holiday. Another consideration is that November weather is ill-  suited for campaign purposes, and still  another tha! it will leave ample time  for the calling ofa November session  of parliament if guided by the practice  ���onive^past two*years.���  ��� ���  ���'[.'-. Charles Ban'Ang;Soeialls' Cnaildiie.  Charles Bunting of Grand Forks,  district president ot the Western Federation of Miners,; Jhas.been_������nominated  by the Socialist pairty to contest YaTe"-~  Cariboo in the forthcoming Dominion  elections. -.-�����..  The nomination was secured by a  referendum vote of all Socialist organizations in the riding, and Mr. Bunting  has been notified that he is the choice.  This makes three candidates m the  fight in Yale-Cariboo and the next two  :nonlh*s should prove pretty interesting  throughout the riding. Duncan Ross  and Martin Burrell, however, have got  away to a good start, being already  campaigning for about a month.  REGULAR SESSION  CITY PARLIAMENT  PHOENIX SYNDICATE  LOCATE 3000 ACRES  Land in the Fertile Nechaco  Valley in the North.  Phoenix capitalists are already on  record for reaching'out and grasping  opportunities, becoming inteiested in  several large enterprises in different  parts of the Dominion for the development of greater Canada. The latest  enterprise is the Northern ' Exploration  Company, formed for-'the purpese of  acquiring and developing a large tract  of land in Northern'British Columbia.  The company was formed some  months ago :. and Edward. Thompson  and Charles Pinker were appointed to  go north and locate/the land. After  spending some five months in exploring the northern part of the province  they returned to town this week, having located some; 8000 acres. The  property selected is in the Nechaco  valley, tributary to Fort George, on tbe  route of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. It is said to-be some of the  choicest of the fertile; northern lands!  Those interested in the company are  Mayor Mathes'.n, Dr. McLean. J.E.W.  Thompson, C. H. Reeves, W. X Perkins, AI. Almstrom, RH. McCracken,  Edward Thompson and Charles linker  Phoenix, and J.A.. Morrin, Peachland.  It is their, intention- to; survey and  develop the land. ;' v  MINING EXPERTS  AT PHOENIX MINES  A Number of Complaints Dealt  With���Accounts Passed.  The regular session of the city  council was held on Wednesday evening, Mayoi Matheson and Aldermen  Knott, Biner, Rogers and McKenzi.  .being present.  Communications were read from  .Mrs, J. H. Graham re her account foi  loss and damage through the smallpox  quarantine last fall, and from L Penna  re scavenger overcharge. Mr. Mullan,  of Stemwinder hotel complained to the  council of the damage and danger  occasioned by snow falling from the  rear of lhe Balmoral hotel, togethei  with other minor complaints. On  motion the Board of Works was in  sti ucted to to investigate and deal with  gi ievances.  Aid Biner asked that the city place  fifty teet of hose lo supplement a similar amount at the brewery for fire protection, lhe whole to be at the disposal  ofthe city. The council complied with  Mr. Biner's request.  On motion of Aid. Biner and McKenzie the tax collector was instructed  to collect all dog taxes forthwith.  The following accounts were paased:  Phoenix Electric   Light Co. $100 85  Hunter-Kendrick Co  5  --  Phoenix Livery        17  Morrin, Thompson & Co,..  C. A. Ross      George Evans   B. C.

Yesterday ..:  The British and European raining  expeits who are touring Canada as  guests of the Canadian Mining Institute arrived in the Boundary on  Thursday: in a special train, having  visitt-d Rossland and Kootenay mines.  Ouring the afternoon they were shown  through the B C. Copper.company's  Smelter and the Mother Lode mine by  J. E. McAllister^ and in the evening  were entertained at a smoker in the  auditorium, Greenwood.  The party reached.FPhoenix at 10.30  a.m.-yesterday, a series of open blasts  being set off on Granby hill as a salute.  They were acco.npafjied by Manager  A.   B. ..W..

They  were entertained at Grand Forks last  night.  J. E. Proctor, C.P.R. district  passenger agent, accompanied the  party. ,       ^   A new addition is being built to the  rear of the Granby hotel. The  entrance has also been remodelled  GRANBY STOCK AS  AN INVESTMENT  None Safer to be Found on the  Mining List.  The Bocton copper ciitic, Geo. L.  Walker, has the following rvgardin-j  Granby stock in the last iss-ue -of the  Commercial:  "'l'he Granby company has put  down diamond drill holes over a larin  portion of its property, and has demon  stiated the continuance of its ore deposits, and Hie maintenance of' values  so that more than r 0,000,000 tons of  ore, of the same grade that is now  being treated, 'has been thoroughly  proved, though it has not been blocked  out or put in sitibt. On a 14 cent  copper market this ore has a gross  value of $4.75 to $5.00 per ton. The  management has demonstrated an  ability to treat it, extract the copper,  gold and silver, and refine and sell the  product for about $3 to $3.25 per'ton.  Therefore Granby is practically assured  net earnings of $15,000,000' to $20,  000,000 from it�� demonstrated* ore;  Ai $iP5 its issued stock has a market  value of $14,175,000. Granby stock,  therefore is about as safe an investment as it is possible to find on the  mining list.  "While the demonstrated ore is said  to be at least 10,000,000 tons, there is  no reason to believe that approximately  double this tonnage has been practically proved by diamond drills and development work. There is almost no  speculation in Granby stock, and no  disposition has been shown by insiders  to sell it either at high or low prices.  Last year it sold as high as $151.  Had it not been for the interruption  caused by the forest fires, Granby would  now be earning between $9 and $10  per share on its stock."  Boundary Side Lights  fruit  and  PRESENTATION TO  MINE FOREMAN  Otto Isaacson the Recipient of  Watch, Chain and Locket.  A pleasing event took place at the  shift boss's office No. 3 Granby tunne1,  at 6.30 Thursday evening when Otto  Isaacson, who is leaving shortly, was  made the recipient of .a gold watcb,  chain and engraved locket by fellow  employees   of  the  Granby   company,  McDonaldJn the presence of a large  number of workmen as they came  off  shift. Mr. Isaacson Was taken by  suf pTT3e7���tmr *^eeTirigry---expi^wn���i���i-u.  regret at leaving. ��� He thanked them  all very heattily for their kind expression of goodwill which he would prize  highly and wished them one and all  every prosperity.  Mr. Isaacson has been assistant foreman at the Granby mines for some  time and was.a popular official among  the men. He leaves Peoenix Monday  for Tacoma, Wash., where he owns a  ranch and where his family is now  residing.  The Kettle valley has sent  exhibit-? to the fairs at Kaslo  Nelson.  Percy Andrews was seriously injured  in a train accident at Grand Forks late  last week.  The residence of J. LeBlanc, Grand  Foiks, was entered by thieves Monday  evening and $28 stolen.  W. P. Tierney contractot, has gone  to Ottawa and Toronto on business  and it is thought his visit in the east  may result in operations being resumed  on the Kettle Valley railway extension  The schedule for the excursion to  the Nelson fair on Eagle day, Thursday,  is as follows: Greenwood, 7 a.m  Eholt, 7:30 a n>., Grand Forks, 8:10  a.m., Cascade, 8:35. It will arrive at  Nelson at 1 p.m., and leaves lor the  Houndary agiin at 11 p.m. Return  tickets will be on sale at the following  rates, Greenwood $3.46- : Phoenix,  $3.50; Eholt, $3 25; Grand Forks,  $2 85; Cabcade,$2.55.  At government office Grand Forks  for the past week seven locations of  mineral claims were recorded, thirty-  seven certificates of work, and two  transfers. The transfers comprise a  one half interest in the Triplicate  Fraction, located ,in .Summit camp,  from J. F. Cunningham to J. Mtlligan;  a one-quarter interest in the Union  Fraction, South Wellington camp, from  E. T. Wickwire to J. E. McEwen.  With a few exceptions the certificates  of work were all for work done on  claims on the North Fork of Kettle  river, there being a large number of  men in that district at the present time  working on their respective claims.

The big mining deal which 'was t  reported in last week's Pioneer as being ' j  under way. has been closed, the B.C. '  Copper company acquiringasix months'  working bond on the Molly Pritchard  and Athlestan fraction, the Jackpot aud '  the Buttercup, in Wellington camp.  J.' E. McAllister,   manager  of the '  company, interviewed by  the Pioneer  yesterday, stated that the deal had been  :  put through on Thufsclay and the'factsu  as reported' ih' the*"*1ast" issue' of*the ""*  Pioneer were substantially correct, with  slight exceptions as to , details.

C. Copper, and a general boom is  expected in Wellington camp." As'the ;  camp is tributary to Phoenix, local ,.  business should also be stirred when  operations commence.  Hand Badly Braised.  John Thomas had a narrow escape  in the mines on Monday morning. He  was going into chute 121 to bulldoze  when a rock sent from a higher level  came down, grazing his head and  lighting on one of his hands.
