In the Spokesman R-*vlew of the

Mr. J. P. Graves of Spokane bus been
successful iu organizing a very strong
company iu Moolreal, in build h smelter for ibe treatment of ore from the

Ihal has led to a promotion of un unusual number of Arizona and Michigan
in a cupper companies upon llie eastern uiarkel, While eoiiservaiism stig-
gesls lhat this ciippei sliiiii',i.pi*i-i:laiion
la p limps being overdone wiih new
cuinpanies, yet lliere is on ihc nlber
hand every reason I'nr believing Ihal it
is nm all exlii'iiie. liy comparison
with other years lhe copper shares
have certainly made big advances.
llul Ibis, iiiiiii"- llu* exisling con-

Tlie present is an age of progress, De-

entering into Ihc cosl ofpi-odiu-iiig copper, have been modernized so as to
bring il dmvn loa minimum, At tbe
same lime the demand for ihu melal
bis iliclnilsi.il at a surprising rale, and
lhe production of our mines of a few
years ago would uol begin to meet Ihe
presenl demand. Even as ii is, ihu
supply nf enpper of nearly all lbe large
producers is kept sold well ulieud for

MAKING CAPITAL.
The Conservative press, in ami out
of llie province, is hying to make capital by asserting thai IheO, I'.ll. wields
a greater power at, Ottawa now Iluin
ever before, and lo substantial!' Iheir
claim, the Crow's Nesl, deal ami liic
successful opposition lo llic Cm bin
charter, is given as pi oof of iln* same,
Those who are so ready lo condemn
the Dominion government, in this respect, are the very ones who so siren*
erously fought againsl. Iln* gianling oi
the Corbin charter, Iheruby enhancing
the power of the corporation which
they taunt llu* Dominion government wilh an Inability to kill, li
is from jusl such a source the cry,
"Camilla i'nr Canadians" usually cmiu
ates,
THEC. P. R, POLICY,
Much speculation is being Indulged
in by ihnse who arc Inlerested in thu
movements oflhc C. P. It. in lliis district. For snine lime it was considered
that the Columbia and Western would
be extended from Rohson in .Miiiway,
and that hi this poinl connection would
be made with the Vancouver, Vieloria
-•and Eastern Railway, but it, looks now
as if some'itlier moveuii'iil is contemplated, and lhat IheO. I'. II. sue determining lbe feusahllily of carrying
their line al lhe earliest possible liniment loa connection with lhei" system cither al Penticton or Vernnn. If
the former, then connection would be
made with their slcamltoat service on
Okanagan lake, and if wilh the latter,
then wfiuld railway couiiectiun be
made wilh tbdjShuswap and Okanagan
railway, which runs from Vernon and
joins ihe C. P. R, main line ut Sicamous, That some such movement Is
contemplated is adduced from the fact
that active surveying operations are
being eat ried on to the wesl of Midway,
and as Ihese operations are lo extend
throughout the wilder anil are tn he
confined lo lhe valley of lhe Kellle
river, until the height of laud is reached
which divides lhe valley of lllc said
river from Ihal of lhe Okanagnn, lliere
would seem to he room for lhe conjecture referred in.
If it is decided to make connection
wilh Penticton ihen would the line be
no doubt carried from ihe summit nf
lhe divide dnwn Peiiliclon creek,
whereas if Vernnn is lhe objective
pninl Ihen lhe height of lnmi would lie
followed linlil the bead nf Mission
creek is reached, and ihen llie hue
would he curried down Ihis deck In
the Okanagan Mission valley, by following which liniiii Vei inm would
easily be gained, Whatever the policy
of the coinpaiiy i-, no dnuhl ilm near
future will see ii revealed, ami if m ihe
upper Okanagan disi i Icl railway con*
iieclion is given ivilh Boiiiuhiry Creek
and the Kooleiiay, Mich nn era of
