STEED PLANT WANTED FOB B. C.
The Vancouver Board of Trade
have approached the Provincial Government with a view to obtaining
their assistance should any reputable
company undertake the establishment of a steel   plant    on -the Coast.
Mr. Nicol Thomson, chairman of
the mining committee, presented the
foUowing report to the  government:
British Columbia imported in 1912
approximately 120,000 long tons of
iron and steel having a gross value of
approximately $3,000,000. This province has abundant supplies of raw
material for the manufacture of all
the iron and steel required for British Columbia and the adjacent provinces and states, there being no iron
and steel works on the Pacific coast
between Alaska and Mexico, or west
of the Rockies, so that the industry
established here would have this field
for its market
Importance of Russian Market.
The commitee has information that
the Russian market will be of great
importance in the development of the
export trade in iron and steel. Approximately 20,000 tons of iron ore
from Texada Island in British Columbia was shipped to Port Townsend
and San Francisco, and was used in
the construction of the United States
battleships "Nebraska" and "Oregon"
and two Japanese battleships. The
reports upon it were exceedingly
favorable, and gave highest satisfac-
Iron-Carrymg Ores.
In a paper read before the American Institute Mining Engineers, Mr.
C C Jones stated that the ores of this
coast carry from 4 to 10 per cent
■more iron than the standard Lake
Superior iron ores, and that the bulk
of the tonnage is within Bessemer
limit for phosphorus. There is no
cost of drying before transportation,
and there is a saving of 10 per cent on
the freight charged on crude Lake
Superior ores. He estimates the present market for iron and steel products on the Pacific coast to be 923,-
000 tons per annum, and states that if
the manufacturing of cast-iron pipes,
oil pipe, railway steel and shipbuilding
is undertaken the a:

Cost of Production.
The cost of producing pig
British Columbia has been  es
by Dr. Lindeman at $16 per ton; by
Seaver at $12.25 per ton, and by Wil-
mot at $12 to $17 per ton, according
to quality. The cost of producing pig.
iron at Irondale, Washington, was
$13.75 per ton. The average cost of
pig iron at Pittsburg is $15.30 per
ton, as given by Judge Geary before
the ways and means committee of the
United States House of Representatives. The present cost of United
States pig iron in Vancouver is $27.50
per ton, and of Eglington (England),
$33 per ton. The price of this, under
normal conditions, would be $22.50
and $27 per ton, respectively.
The cost of a one hundred ton per
day unit blast furnaces, including rolling mill, converting plant and coking
plant would be approximately $1,800,-
000. In our opinion a steel plant
capable of supplying the local market
and the immediate export trade could
be put down here at a capital of approximately $5,000,000, and we recommend that the provincial government be approached to assist in some
tangli'ble way any bona fide company
that would establish such a plant here.
GRANBY   CONSOLIDATED   CO.
At the annual meeting of the
shareholders of the Granby Consolidated Copper Mining, Smelting and
Power Company net profits for the
year ended June 30th were shown to
be $929,165. Sales of- 25,746,050
pounds of copper were made at an
average price of 15.87 cents; the
average cost was 10.66 cents. There
was realized from copper sales $4,-
086,441. The production for the year
amounted to 26,638,912 pounds of
copper, 377,881 ounces of silver and
31,388 ounces of gold. Hereafter
quarterly reports will be issued by the
company.
The balance sheet as of June 30th
discloses total assets of $21
of which cash and metal on hand represented   $1,756,543;   accounts  recei-
able
i $568,465;
$664,680,  and  the surplus  $3,668,
The  Granby  Consolidated     Mining,
Smelting and Power Company has :
stalled a new furnace at its plant
Anyox, making the capacity 3000 tc
every 24 hours.
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company, with smelter at
Trail, has the biggest payroll in its
history.' Eight hundred men are employed at the smelter and at the Fife
quarries, wages aggregating between
$160,000 and $170,000 per month.
The Minister of the Interior, Hon.
Dr. Roche, has intimated that while
he is unable to grant a further general extension of time for payment
of lease rentals he has decided:
1. To protect leases held by men
enlisted in the Canadian forces.
2. To protect leases where development has been commenced.
3. That in cases of individuals or
companies holding large number of
leases portions of their holdings may
be dropped and the amount paid previously on the leases now dropped
shall count towards further payments
on leases retained.
4. That no leases will be cancelled
automatically but the case of each
leaseholder given consideration.
In all cases leaseholders should
communicate with the Minister of the
Interior, making, if possible, a payment on account as evidence of good
faith.
Announcement of the above fair
and reasonable regulations will be received by all leaseholders with the
liveliest satisfaction, and the B. C

an address to the B. C. Consumers'
League that $25,000,000 was annually
sent out of B. C. in payment for agriculture products of a kind that are
also grown here, while an equal
amount leaves the province for manufactured goods.
The B. C. Consumers' League has
now 6000 members. The country
members pledge themselves to buy
B. C. manufactured goods wherever
possible and the city members reciprocate by purchasing local products
in preference to imported products.
The League is organized in Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster,

ALASKA EXPOSITION.
It is proposed to hold organized celebrations and displays during 1917 in
the leading cities of the territory. Juneau, Skagway, Wrangell, Fairbanks
and Ketchikan.
1917 being the 50th anniversary of
the acquisition of Alaska as U. S. territory, the object of the celebrations
are to advertise the natural resources
of this vast region and to help dispel
the all too prevalent idea that Alaska
is an ice-bound country and gold mining is the only means of livelihood.

EDITORIAL
The latter part of October was
marked throughout the States as a
period of great prosperity in every
department of trade and business.
Bank clearings show very substantial
increases compared with last year's
figures. The steel trade is breaking
all records of production. The manufacturing centres are crying out for
skilled labor. The recent huge shipments of gold from debtor countries
have filled Uncle Sam's treasury to
overflowing.
Farmers are freer from debt than
for years past and are in many instances lenders rather than borrowers owing to the production of good
crops in two successive seasons. Even
real estate is picking up and transactions are becoming more numerous.
We welcome the news of our neighbor's properity and believe that the
golden wave in the near future will
be flowing our way, too.

The Florence Silver Lead Mining
Co. are considering plans for the
driving of a long tunnel, 3000 feet

for lumber which they can secure for
the United Kingdom, South Africa,
Australia and other points and, it is
with a view of dispelling the congestion which has arisen through lack of
ships that the committee are endeavoring to foster the industry.
Rates for freight are so high that
the commitee learn they can probably
secure a sum for freight equal to 40
to 50 per cent of the capital necessary to procure the ships. This could
be earned in about four months.
These figures are very encouraging
and it only requires the united efforts
of the citizens of B. C. to provide the
necessary funds. If the industry is
once put on a proper footing it will-,
in addition to providing labor for
hundreds of men, bring large sums of
money for lumber and other poods
which is bound to react for the benefit of the whole community. We wish
the committee every success in their
patriotiSgndeavors.
STATER RIGHTS.
We draw attention to the formal
notices in another column that meetings of the Board of Investigation under the Water Rights Branch of the
Provincial Government will be held at
New Westminster on December 16.17
to deal with the matter of holdings
along the tributaries of the lower
Fraser River.

NEW YORK STOCK MARKET.
The strength exhibited by the New

justfied our optimistic forecasts in
our previous issues.
C. P. R.'s have been over 190,
Southern Pacific's to 102, Union Pacific's 139, United States Steel 88,
Reading 82 and Erie has risen from
33 to 44; Studebaker has risen 40
points since we recommended it.
The foregoing figures reflect the
prosperity now obtaining in the United States, which would appear to be
mainly attributable to the large orders for war and other materials received from Europe.
We still believe that all the Standard American Rails and C. P. R. will

ating and Cumulative stock of a mining company controlling a number of Crown-Granted mineral claims in one of the richest mining
sections of the Province offers a limited number of these desirable
shares for a short time.
Development work on sections of these claims.has progressed to an
advanced stage there being already over 4000 feet of tunnels, drifts,
cross-cuts, up-raises and winzes, three-fourths of which penetrate
solid ore bodies in veins well defined and rich enough in constant
values (copper, silver and gold) to render shipment very profitable.
New lower-level tunnel to economize in cost of mlning-*operati»ns
is already being driyen and an Aerial tcamway to reduce cost of
transportation now undertaken—the whole to be completed expeditiously to provide for constant shipment of ores at the minimum
cost of both production and transportation.
Proceeds of share sales to be devoted to above specified development and construction work.

A GREAT MINING REGION
British Columbia is pre-emdnently A GREAT MINING REGION. Its mines already yield virtually all
the lead mined in Canada, more than one-half the Gold, nearly three-quarters of the Copper, fully one-
tpsairtev of the Coal and about one-tenth of the Silver, and a share of some other minerals. This high rank
has heen reached notwithstanding that prospecting of even the most desultory character has been carried
out only on a small, almost insignificant, part of the area, and this chiefly in districts lying south of the
man* Hne of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
MINERALS "WIDELY DISTRIBUTED  THROUGHOUT  BRITISH   COLUMBIA.
COAL occurs in vast quantities.    The recently pub lished   estimate  of  a  well-known  Dominion   geologist
.   places the coal content of the various known coal areas  of  the  Province   at:     Anthracite,   61,000,000   tons;
bituminous,   39,674,000,000  tons;   lignite,   490,000,000  tons; total, 40,225,000,000 tons.      Coal mines are being
worked! in Southeast Kootenay, Similkameen, Nicola Valley,  Vancouver Island,  and others are being opened
on Queen Charlotte Islands, Skeena River, and other  widely-separated parts of the Province.
GOLD is also found, practically all over the Province. The largest known Placer Gold fields are in
Cariboo and! Atlin districts. An official estimate of gold-bearing gravels in Quesnel division of Cariboo
district is 2,500,000,000 to 3,000,000,000 cubic yards, containing $300,000,000 worth of gold. Lode Gold is
now obtained chiefly from mines in Rossland, Nelson, Boundary, and Similkameen districts. The 6oast district gives every promise of also yielding much lode gold when more mining shall be done in it.
SILVER in comparatively large quantity comes from Slocan, and Boundary mines. Lardeau, Rossland,
Nelson and Coast district mines also produce silver. Much more is expected from mines now being developed
in Portland Canal and Observatory Inlet and the Skeena a&id Omineca districts.       I
LEAD is mined in greater amount in East Kooten ay than any other parts, but Slocan, Ainsworth, Nelson
and Lardeau mines also produce this metal.    Skeena district gives promise of producing lead ere long.
COPPER mines in Boundary district are the largest producers of this metal in Canada. Rossland and
Coast districts also yield copper. Kamloops and Similkameen are both known to have large deposits of
copper ores awaiting utilization.
ZINC AND IRON will yet become important contributors to the mineral production of British Columbia,
there being much ore containing one or other of these metals, in various pa/rts of the Province.
OTHER MINERALS occur, though little has yet been done to utilize them. Among those found are:
Cinnabar  (Mercury),  Pyrites,  Scheelite,  Molybdenite,  Mica, Gypsum, Magnesite, Petroleum, etc.
REDUCTION WORKS include Copper and Lead Smelter. Stamp Mills, Silver-Lead and Zinc Concentrating Mills, Electrolytic Lead Refinery, etc. The largest Copper Smelter in the British Empire is that of the
Granby Company at Grand Forks, B. C. Smelters and Mills are equipped with modern machinery and metal-
saving appliances. >
CAPITAL—Capital can now find here many excellent opportunities for investment, as the value placed
on mines and undeveloped properties has reached a reasonable basis. If proper business care is used, and .the
experiences of competent men utilized these investments should be safe as well as profitable.
MINERAL LANDS—Mineral lands are open to lo cation to any person over 18 years of age, who has
obtained a frees miner's certificate, and perfect title to lode, claims can be easily secured after $500 worth of
work has been done per claim.    For information,, reports, bulletins, etc., address      1
