PHOENIX NEEDS:A NEW SCHOOL
School Board Forwards Petition to Provincial Government
Asking for an Appropriation of $10,000. '
. The following petition has been
forwarded by -Phoenix school board
to Ernest Miller, M.L.A. for Grand
Forks, -to. be presented to the Provincial government:
To the Hon. Richard McBride, Premier of British Columbia, and Members of Legislative Assembly:
Whereas it is imperative that the
City of Phoenix must erect a new public school building; and
• Whereas the said City of Phoenix is
not in a financial position to undertake the construction of a suitable
b'ilding without substantial financial
assistance; and
Whereas over sixty per cent of the
pupils enrolled at Phoenix school are
non-residents of the said city, but'reside within the school district; and
Whereas the ,Provincial Government derives an approximate revenue
of $40,000 annually from mines and
residents within the Phoenix School
District that contribute nothing to the
civic treasury of the ..said City of
Phoenix; <
Now, therefore, we, the Board of
School Trustees for said School District of Phoenix, together with 265
taxpayers and householders of said
City of Phoenix, humbly request that
your Government favorably consider
an appropriation of Ten Thousand
Dollars ($ic,ooo) towards the.building of said school, and in connection
therewith • the following -facts are respectfully submitted:
,   WHV A   NEW ^SCHOOL  IS  NEEDED.
The present school building is lo-
cated-within 200 feet from a Granby
ore'crusher, which operates continuously; ' the noise from' the crusher
prevents.conversation between teacher
and pupils for periods of several minutes
at timet', while' the continual noise is
also greatly interfering with the work
of the institution. ,
The building is an old one, requiring constant repair, and is lacking in
proper sanitary conditions. It. only
accommodates 60 per", cent of the
pupils enrolled, and the one room
available/ to accommodate the'other
40 per rent" of the "enrollment is outside t e city limits.
A change in location of the institution is essential, and to remove and
lemudel the old building would be utter lolly. ,    --.,
' peculiar' townsite.
The townsite of the City of Phoenix
is peculiarly laid out; although within
a radius of one mile trom the center
of the city there are the plants of
three big mining companies and a
population of over 2,000 people, yet
none of the plants are located and
only about 1,000 people reside within
the city limits.
■   city's limited revenue.
It will be seen, therefore, that the
civic tieasury ot Phoenix derives no
revenue from any of the mining companies nor from half of the population
of the SchooUDistrict which the Phoenix public school serves. This latter
point'is well illustrated by the fact
that 108 pupils now enrolled in Phoenix school, 65 (over «o per cent) reside outside the city limits.
The Public School Act authorizes
property in the district lo be taxed
only 5 mills on; the assessed value of
property, which amount Is hardly sufficient to cover the, running expenses
of the school. v
Phoenix, on, account of poor sewerage and bad water, is always subject to epidemics, and the revenue of
the corporation is taxed to the limit to
meet the cost of suppressing disease.
what the provincial government
receives from district.
The Provincial Government's annual revenue from properties and
residents within the Phoenix School
District, based on the returns for 1909,
is as follows: '■  ,
Personal and propeity-taxes.$ 8,500 00
Special 2% tax on ore.1'...  26,690 00
Poll tax   '.'...,'.:..    3,701 00
Income tax .'!...    1,300 00

why the government should con-
!   . ',, tribute!'. '
Considering the facts, that the total
annual revenue of the.City of Phoenix
is less than $20,000;-" that the government's annual revenue from the school
district which Phoenix school serves is
$40,000.00 and that 60 per cent of
the pupils attending '.Phoenix school
are non-residents of the /city, it is only
reasonable that the government sho'ild
contribute substantially, to the required
school accommodation..
AN  IMPORTANT  CITV.
Phoenix ia an important city; it is the
third city in British Columbia from a
railway' shipping standpoint. . More
mineral product (coal excepted) was
shipped from'. Phoenix;-iriines during
1909'then from all Other sources in
the". Dominion "of Canada'combined.
The.ore-.reserves, guarantee a continuance of- these-shipments-for at
least 50 .years. -
GROWTH    OF  CITY   IMPAIRED  BY   LACK
' OF- SCHOOL  ACCOMMODATION.
Phoenix 'community, is -growing,
though slowly. , With5 a population of
2,000 people in,the city'and adjoining
towusiles, the* enrollment "at Phoenix
school (based on the.average of other
cities) should be 250. pupils, whereas
the present enrollment is only 108.
Many refuse to bring their families
to Phoenix on account of the lack of
schooling facilities; others tesiding
here send their children elsewhere to
be educated, so that it is within reason
to state that lack of school accommo*
dation is not only retarding the growth
of the city, but merchants ol Phoenix
are losing a large amount of business
for the same reason.   ■
IMPPJtTAN?  FEATURES.     '     _
Phoenix' has no 'Provincial 'public
buildings, and is so situated between
the cities of Grand Forks and Greenwood, that a Provincial public building will probably never be necessary, so that Phoenix, for at least
years to come, will not need furtner
assistance in this way. It may also
be noted that Phoenix has never re
ceived a grant for a public building
before.
FREE   FIRE   PROTECTION.
The City ot Phoenix built its own
city hall, fire hall and jail without
government assistance. The city fire
department gives protection to a large
amount of property outside the city
iimits without any tax. Funher,
the Provincial government has had
free use of the city, prison since the
city was incorporated.
IN   CONCLUSION.
In conclusion, we believe that the
request for $10,000 appropriation for
a school in Phoenix is in no way unreasonable, when the above facts are
considered; and believe a new' school
will tend to increase the revenue of
both the city and the province.
Attached is a map of the City of
Phoenix.

; i The Granby mines at Phoenix shipped 112,458 tons of ore to the Granby
smelter during the month of January,
which is the largest output of the
mines in any single mon'h. This ton
nage forced the ore receipts at the
Granby smelter up' to the highwater
mark of 115,084 .tons, of which amount
2,6;6 tons were from foreign properties.
During the month of January about
108,000 tons of ore were treated at the
Granby reduction works, an average of
about 3,500 tons per day. Only six
furnaces were in operation during the
greater part of the month.

for January were as* follows :

PHOENIX NOW TOPS
BOUNDARY LEAGUE
In the Race for Hockey Championship
By defeating Greenwood 4 goals to
3 at hockey last Wednesday evening,
Phoenix takes the leading position in
the race for the Boundary league
trophy, which up to that time had
been occupied by Greenwood.
But Greenwood got another bump
at Grand Forks Thursday night, when
the team of the latter city won easily
by a score'of <j goals .to 1. As a re
suit of this game, Greenwood drops to
third position, having won 2 games
and lost 3; C J rand Forks has won a
sod lost' z, while.. Phoenix»hjm>: wonv. 3
and lost 2. v
phoenix 4; greenwood 3;
Keen ice and clean fast hockey were
the outstanding features of the game
on Phoenix ice Wednesday evening
which resulted in the above score
From the start it was recognized that
the teams were fairly balanced, although
crippled. Greenwood were short their
star point man, McDonald, while
Clothier of the local line-up was weak
from having been in the hospital several days for repairs and Sims carried
one hand in a bandage.
Referee Lang of Grand Forks gave
excellent satisfaction and kept the
game free from roughness; only one
man from each team was penalized.
Watson, the Greenwood goalkeeper,
was among the most conspicuous
players on the ice; time after time
Phoenix kept up a continuous fire
with the puck, but he guarded his net
like a Gibraltar. Greenwood got away
to a good start in the first half with
two goals to the locals' single. On
resuming, Greenwood again scored and
had the game 3 to r in their favor. This
gingered the locals up, who in about
two minutes landed two goals, and the
score was a tie, 3 all. From this on
both teams played aggressively, with
the puck principally on Greenwood's
ice. About ten minutes before time
was called Phoenix scored the winning
goal.
The line-ups were the same as
played here New Year's night, except
that McMillian replaced McDonald for
Greenwood, and McKelvey replaced
Trainer for the locals.
There are now five barber shops in
Phoenix.
IMPROVEMENTS AT RAWWB
New Dominion's Property- Being Put in Shape to Commence

v:
i- s *
Development work and improvements at the Rawhide mine to date
indicate that the principal Dominion
Copper property'will be on the' shipping list again early next month.' !Arrangements are being made with that
object in view. •>,'/.,.*
It is expected that in another, couple
of weeks the entire property will,have
been explored by the diamond drill, so
that the management will have a thorough knowledge of the mine when shipments commence.   . . r >.  ■ !
A building 30 feet wide and 80,feet
long is being built near the old No, 3
Rawhide tunnel and will serve at a
machine shop and storehouse. The
machinery from the company's smelter
shops at Boundary Falls and the Idaho
shop will be moved to the new building. The company own plenty of
machinery for a' firstclass shop. The
Stemwinder  buildings   are  being- re
moved and the'lumber utilized in' the~"
new structure at the Rawhide.   r .*-^-
,   It is also the intention of the management to move the crusher at the •-
smelter to the Rawhide, and probably
iristal a conveyor, so that the mine,
when it   resumes , shipping   will   be
equipped sitrriliarly to other local producers. .

INSPECTION OF THE
TWO CITY DAIRIES
Sanitary   Conditions at Both
Nearly Perfect
" The sanitary conditions at the,two
dairies which supply milk to Phoenix
residents—McKay's and Hannam's—
are as nearly perfect as can be obtained, and the city is to be congratulated on having milk dealers who rea
ltze the importance of cleanliness," said
Dr. W. H. Dickson, medical health
officer, on his return from a visit of
inspection on Tuesday.
1 The visit of the health officer was an
unexpected one at the dairies and was
made late in the afternoon; but both
were found in A-i condition., All
water is brought a distance of at
least half a mile' and is boiled from
two to six hours previous to using; all
cans and other milk vessels, alto the
cows, are systematically washed with
sterilized water, and the stables and
stock itself were found particularly
clean. Every reasonable precaution is
being taken-by both dairies to. ensure^
a perfect milk supply.

Tms DaHy
The old smelter at Van Anda, Tex-
ada island, which has been closed
down for many years, is being reconstructed by an American syndicate.
The treatment of customs ores by a
new oil-burning process is planned.
The plant will have a capcaity of 150
of ore daily. A supply of ores is expected to be secured from the island
mines, the Queen Charlottes and Portland canal district. It is claimed that
the new method of treatment will cut
the costs in half as no coke will be required to fuse the ores.
A big athletic program has been
arranged for the fire department's first
smoker to be held in the gymnasium,
city hall, this (Saturday) evening.
Several three-round bouts have been
arranged, in which best local recruits
will take part. There will be ample
refreshments for all, and every person
interested in the local fire brigade is
cordially invited.
M. K. ROGERS ON VISIT
;     TO GRANBY MINES ~
Made Report on the Property
15 Years Ago
M. K. Rogers, the former   manager
of the famous' Nickel' Plate mine at
Hedley, and who was  instrumental in
the sale of the property from the Marcus Daly estate to the Hedley Gold
Mining company last summer,' was in
camp on Tuesday on a visit to  the'
Granby mines.'   Mr.' Rogers made a "
report on the Old Ironsides and Knob
Hill claims about fifteen years ago and '
was much interested in the wonderful
development of the' property' by' ,the .
Granby company since thai?time.    He
was shown'through the mines by Sup- '
erintendent Smith. '   . ti/;'.':.
According to Mr. Rogers, the Hed
ley Gold Mining company,  for which
he is'  consulting engineer,   has  very
bright prospects for a good  dividend
payer in the Nickel Plate.    From  assays of 350 samples of ore taken from
different parts of the mine l.<ut summer
it w** estimated that there were. 130,-
060* tons of ore in sight, running about'
$r2 per ton.    Development work carried on since that time has  more than  '
borne out the estimated value of some
of the ore bodies. s.     ,,,,
Mr. Rogers also represents large interests in the development of the Hidden Creek properties on the coast.
He looks for the Portland canal district to take an important place in
Provincial mining in the not distant
future.
Trail Oeltf aad Silver
The following resolution was sent
to the Dominion government by the
Associated Boards of Trade of the
Kobtenays:
"Whereas the only refinery in Canada producing gold and silver is located at Trail, therefore, in order that
Canadian gold and silver may be used
for coining purposes, the Dominion •
government be requested to purchase
gold and silver at Trail on the same
basis as the United States purchases
these metals through its assay offices .
located at such points as Seattle, Helena, Mont., and other places and
therefore prevent the exportation of
Canadian gold."

rsitr"The"chance of a coal seam
being terminated is, of course, a minimum, the main thing being ■ to secure
sufficient acreage. The price of coal
does, not vary, much: Profit per ton
on soft coal, i$ 10 to 15 cents and on
anthracite probably 50 cents., , It would
be easy for a moderately careful student of annual' reports ot'coal companies to determine what his probable
rat^ of interest, would be upon his investment
In iron mining the risk is somewhat
greater, and was markedly so until discovery'of the, Mesabi Range in Minnesota, with its enormous deposits," now
largely controlled by the Steel Corporation. It is likely that/ they have on
the Mesabi Range '1,250,000,000 tons
actually developed, while on .the older,
ranges,, operated for the last 40, years,
,itJ«„dpubtfuUf,there is actually,,visible
more than ^250,000,000-tons. It is
ownership of these large'tonnages and
of the1 large acreage of cokingVoal that
puts .the Steel Corporation in such

second is the sudden end of the ore you feel satisfied with, 6 per cent interest, you can- afford to pay .$10.68
for each 'share and out of the $1 you
receive you may consider 64 cents as
interest and 36 cents as a return ol
capital.
Do not let this be the whole point
governing your investment. You must
from the reports take into consideration the possibilities of finding further
ore. II these possibilities are good,
and if you consider that the price of
the metal is going to advance, yo'
certainly have a good investment.
, Take a" stock selling at $9 and paying $2, or as per cent. To return
you your 6 per cent yearly investment
and your capital, that ■ mine should be
capable of keeping up this rate of production for 5.7 years, and if the engineers' reports-show that there art
four years, or even three, years' ore in
sight, sufficients to produce this dividend, and> that'there'are .prospects foi

*      WHAT A REPORT SHOULD SHOW'
iThe Mining 8c Metallurgical Societ)
of) America has decided that^ a 'mining
report should embody : Details as tr
capitalization: a brief*'review (of- past)
history and earnings,; review,^ jn\more-
detail, of work of,,the year, with state-
inentsio/'as'setsjandiliabilities,;, receipt-
and disbursement^costsheet and oihei
information as to work and results; ore
reserves at date compared with reserves
ofj previous years, with;an -estimate,,by,
competent authority,' of > probable life.
]s ^In'a mine, which is a1'business in n
constant state of liquidation, it, must
at the, time of, extinction have made
enough to have paid;itsi expenses, and
also' returned its capital, in addition to
paying dividends. " This is often neglected and you wiilfind every year "a
certain amount charged to construction
ar»d from-that "into capital" account,
which should'have gone into" expense
account." 'Nothing should go against
capital1 account but that'which in-

tax to reimburse, the j cityr foi having

The /city had been granted only

that the treasury was fairly overflowing and Rossland could now be easily

After Outside Real Estate Agejits ■,
The Cranbrook Board of Trade
have taken up the matter of outside
real estate agents. The following ;re-
solution was adopted by that body
last week: i" "
"It was felt that in order to safe*
guard the interests of, resident agents
and to protect the public from.,the
raids of fakirs, a good stiff license ^fee
should be imposed upon all' outside
property. This proposition was favorably received and upon motion it was
resolved to send a deputation of local
real estate agents to wait upon the city
council in the matter."

Fort Gsorfo  Lots
,   A real estate firm is   exploiting extensively through eastern Canada and
the States lots at Fort George, B.C, at
fabulous prices.    John Houston, editor of the Fort George Tribune, replies
to an enquirer as follows:    "The owners of 680 acres, more or less, of land
situate 1^ to 2%  miles west of the
Fraser river and from   1 to   2% miles
south of the  Nechaco, and  adjoining
the Indian reserve land at Fort George
on the southwest corner have sub-divided  11 o  acres,  more  or  less, and
surveyors are at work  sub-dividing the
remainder, in town lots, and  nxmed it
"Central Fort George."    The  land  is
level, as is all  of the land near  Fort
George and  is  covered   with   second-
growth poplar, spruce,   and jack-pine.
The owners do not live at Fort George,
but at Vancouver, oyer 500  miles dis
tant.    None of the lots have been sold
to residents of Fort George,  for they
would have had an opportunity of seeing the lots before parting with   their
money.    The lots are   being sold   by
the same methods used  by  "financial

On Thursday last Jay P. Graves,
vice-president and general,,manager, of
the Granby Mining & SmeltinH Co.,
the'largest copper producer in the Dominion of Canada, was the guest of
honor at an informal luncheon tendered by trie club and numerously attended by local mining men and former northern residents. A short
speech of welcome was made by Sidney Norman, who has known Mr.
Graves, for the past twenty years and
who'' took occasion to point out his
achievements in the mining and railroad world within the past ten years;
Mr. Graves in his reply congratulated
the Sierra Madre club upon the phe
nomenal showing it had made in its
short career and predicted even greater expansion in the future. He lightly
reviewed the founding and completion
of the great copper- plant which he
originated and spoke hopefully of the
immediate future for copper. Mr.
Graves is now a guest at the Hotel
Maryland, Pasadena, and expects to
remain there with his family until May.

British Columbia Wins-Tweatj-twp Modals
"British Columbia is the province
above 'all. others iri ,the, Dominion
which is atrracting the attention of
prospective emigrants from the Old
Country as- well as investors," said W.
B. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, who has just returned to Victoria from a tour of the leading cities
in Britain in charge of the provinctal
fruit exhibit. Mr. Scott expects to
see a heavy influx of settlers of the
most desirable character. During the
two months which he was in England
exhibits were made at 24 shows. He
brings back 22 medals captured by
the Horticultural display of the province, among them'being the silver-
gilt Banksian won by the Kaslo Horticultural and Fruit Growers' Association.  ,

Leadlnj Banker Sounds Warning Voice to the
Public
At the meeting of the clearinghouse
bankers at Vancouver, Mr. Sweeny,
manager Banker of Montreal, concluded his address by sounding a note
"of warning.    He said:
"The annual increase in our clearings during the past four years has
been so great, and during the past year
so abnormal that one cannot avoid
looking for an explanation of the circumstances. The phenomenal rise in
the price of real estate, and the great
activity in dealings about it in the city
and neighborhood seem to supply the
information sought.
We must recognize that this condition of things is ephemeral, and that
when it discontinues, the result will be
not dullness but absolute stagnation,
generally, of pretty long continuance.
Therefore, without presuming to suggest to anybody the lines on which he
should conduct his business, may I be
permitted to say that I sincerely trust
that the members of this house, as a
whole, will use the great power in their
hands towards restraining the speculative fever now in the veins of so many
of their customers to the ultimate great
benefit of the community in which we
are all so very largely interested."

r The purpose of store advertising is
not merely to sell goods, but to sell
more goods—to make friends, build
up a patronage that will not only stick
but grow. Newspapers reach the greatest number of people in the immediate
vicinity in the most natural way, at the
least expense, aud they are therefore
the best of all mediums for stores. In
a newspaper you follow the lines of the
least resistance—you follow with the
stream—you talk to an audience already assembled, to the people who
want to read—their mental cosmos is
right—they are on your wire, and they
won't ring off if you hold their interest.
Attraction is the basis of all advertising
—the store is the sun, the customers
the planets that revolve around it.
