RISE AND FALL OF COPPER
A Review of Ciitiflilitins Ihe Lasl Few
Years.
WHAT LED TO THE SHARP DECLINE
The Future Is Brighter and Copper
Is Almost Sure to Rise
Again.
PACTS   AND    riQURES    OF   INTEREST
Horace L Stevens of the Western
Mining World : For some years pnst the
figures of copper production of the
world show a steady annual increase of
six to ten per cent, yearly. The figures
of consumption show a proportionate increase. Beginning with 1900, the figures
of consumption must be accepted with
ertalu reservations, owing to the switch
ng about of supplies, there having been
large importations of Chili bars Into
Ameiican ports to partially offset the
large exportntlons. It should also be
borne In mind that copper matte and
blister copper from Australasia, South
Africa aud other distant points is
brought to American refineries is greater
or less volume, hence there is a liability
on the part of the statistician to figure
supplies and consumption double, unless
great care Is exercised.
The advance in tbe price of copper,
beginning in 1897, was a legitimate one,
based upon requirements. Later on
tbis advance became a manipulated one*
and the 17-cent price maintained in 1901
uutil nearly the close of the year was
purely artifical. It was so held by tbe
great majority of consumers, both in
the United States and abroad, and in
consequence of this belief the Blocks of
raw copper carried by manufacturers
were allowed to run down to tbe lowest
point known for many years. Many of
tbe independent mining companies
were wine enough to rush their copper
to market as rapidly as possible, thus
depleting the normal stock carried at
tbe smellers. Both these causes added
to the surplus stock of copper in the
hands ol the sale agencies. When the
price of copper broke to 11 cents the demand was enormous, partly because of
the stimulus to consumption it afforded
by lower prices, but even more because
of tbe deBire of consumers to stock up,
There was also a considerable speculative demand from parties would return
a good profit within a few months. As
a consequence the immense surplus of
refined copper, estimated at 150,000 tons
in the United States, was specially absorbed nnd a ficlititious strength given
the market. Advancing prices were
met by sales of copper bought by speculators, aud by nn increasing disposition
on tbe part of consumers to withhold
from the market and depend upou their
large stocks in hope of a recession in
prices. These causes were sullicieut lo
prevent any market advances in the
price of Ihe metal, and there is good
reason for believing that the same interests- that were holding copper at 17
cents one year Bgo have been endeavoring to keep tbe piice down during tbe
past lev. mouths for purposes connected
with the stock market rather than for
the primary business reasons that would
ordinarily govern producers of the
metal.
A careful review of tbe entire copper
situation, in Kurope as well as in
America, *nd with due regard to the
various sources of supply, leads to the
belief that the present sanation of the
metal in sound, and lhat under normal
conditions advancing prices may be
looked for. The e ttent of the probable
advance cannot be foretold, but it seems
likely that with copper selling at 13 to
4 cents per pound enough metal could
be produced to meet the world's requirements. A difference of one cent per
pound means $10,000,000 on the yearly
outcrop of lhe world's mines and $6,ooo,*
000 on the production of Amerlcau
mines.
The effect of 11 to 12 cent copper upou
tbe mines bas been very marked. It is
less than a year since the break in tbe
metal market, but a large number of
mines have been closed down. It is
true tbat only a few of tbe mines suspending work were large producers, but
a number of tbem would have become
factors of Importance in the supply of
tbe metal within the next two or three
years. Tbe opening of new copper
mines is a matter requiring large capital
and tbe number ol new enterprises
undertaken this year io very smalt.
A feature of the copper situation tbat
has not received sufficient attention is
the partial or complete crippling of a
number of important mines within tbe
past few weeks, In tbe Lake district
the Tamarack, Isle Royale and Osceola
mines are working under check, with a
corresponding reduction in output. In
tbe Montana district tbe Boston & Montana is probably making more copper
than ever belore—possibly ten per cent
more than In 1900. The Anaconda Is
turning out more ore than ever belore,
but Is not making asmucb copper. The
Montana    Ore Purchasing company-'
Uniled Copper company combination-
is considerably hamper**d by injunctions
and bas recently lost a big concentrating
mill by fire, and In consequence is nut
producing to anywhere near its full
capacity. The Parrot is a large producer, but is scarcely making as much
metal as two years ago. In California
tbe Mountain Copper company has recently suffered from fire, and the great
United Verde, at Jerome, Arizoua, is
ii'i*-' iu ll.uiics, and the situation is most
critical. It need nol prove surprising jf
tbe United Verde is eliminated from tlie
copper munition as a producer for many
months to come, as tbe fire is more
serious than is generally understood,
mid the smelter plant is right
above the miue. In Mexico the Greene
Consolidated is suffering Irom lack of
water, and in consequence is not producing to unywher: near its full
capacity. All ot these things ate
materially restricting American coppir
producliuu at present.

Macs Needed Improvements.
Cbas.Vroman bas decided to make extensive improvements to the Wentworth
hall and the carpenters have already
commenced work on the same. The
stage wilt be moved back to where tbe
dressing rooms now are, and addition
built on the mirth end for dressing
rooms, this enlarging the seating capacity of the hall considerably. The space
thus cleared will be filled with chairs
and the benches back of where the
chairs now are will be raised. Tbe front
of tbe ball will be fixed up in a more
presentable manner and two double
doors put In while a single door will be
put in the east side. This wltb tbe door
on tbe west aide aud one at the back
will give plenty of means of egress in
case of fire. A box office will be built
in the south east corner and tbe doors
will be so arranged tbat after purchasing your tickets you pass directly into
the hall.
A HusIIIdi Agent.
Morrissey Miner,
The editor of The Miner is uot much
inclined to Indulge in flattery, but we
cannot resist the temptation in this Issue
to refer to Thomas Crahan and his hustling qualities. As a townsite agent he
Is par excellence. lie don't believe in
waiting. He believes in pushing along,
taking advantage of opportunities pre*
Rented, and dealing square with the peo
pie, His energy, his courtesy, bis good
nature and bis fairness makes him
friends on all sides and makes friends
for any proposition he may espouse.
This has beeu demonstrated already in
Morrissey, and it has been demonstrated
time aud time again in his career.

MININU  NOTES   OP   (JENERAL  INTEREST
G. W. Hull, manager of the Sullivan
Group Mining and Smelting Company,
returned Monday, after a prolonged absence iu tbe east and at Spokane. During bis absence be has been in conference with tbe eastern and western
stockholders, and a short lime ago a
meeting of the boaid of directors was
held in Spokane aud all matters satisfactorily adjusted. Mr. Hull comes
back with full authority to proceed
with the work on lhe smelter
buildings and Inaugurate the work at
the Sullivan mine.
This is goods news to the people of
South East Kootenay who have been
waiting anxiously for this decision to be
announced. It means much to this
district, aud tbe uncertainty tbat has
prevailed tbe past few mouths bas caused no little anxiety among the people ol
the district, not alone those directly interested iu mining, but lu all branches
of business. It ia a recognized fact tbat
tbe building of tbe Marysville smelter
means tbe promoting of milling throughout the entire district.
A representative of The Herald saw
Mr. Hull ou Tuesday before he left for
Marysville, regarding the plans of (be
company.
"What is tbe intention of the company regarding the completion of the
smelter,"
"We will go right ahead and finish
the plant," said Mr. Hull. "It is tbe intention to-build a steel stack tbut will
serve for lhe roasters nnd blast furnaces
as well. Work will be resumed on the
buildings, and the smelter will be pushed to completion as rapidly as possible.
Mr. Elmendorf, the superintendent hud
intended to return with me, but tbe
sickness of his child iu Spokane, delayed bis departure. He will be here in
two or three days."
When will you commence work on
tbe mine?"
We expect to have a force at work
there about the 15th of next mouth.
There will be a number of tbe heavy
shareholders here early next week, to
visit the property."
Mr. Hull left Tuesday afternoou for
Marysville.       	
Closing of St. Eugene.
Moyle, B. C , Sept. 9.—The St. Eugene mine was closed down tight jester-
day. The pump was pulled out of the
shaft, tlie machine drills taken out of
tbe miue and cleaned and put away and
the miners were all given their time-
Two men will be employed to watch tbe
mine,
Charlea Smith will soon have the Installing of tbe new boilers completed,
and then tbe small force of men will be
laid off. There will theu be ouly three
or four men on the payroll of the St.
Eugene Consolidated Mining Company,
Limited.
Two years ago this same company was
employing nearly 300 men, and its
monthly payroll waa between $25 000
and 930,000. It was shipping on au average of 2,000 tons of concentrates every
month, of a gross value of $70 per ton
Tbe fall lo price accounts for lhe closing
down of Moyie's big mine, and when
operations will be resumed is a matter
of speculation. Manager James Cronin
says that the Louden price of lead must
reach tbe £13 mark before a wheel will
turn.
But tbe St. Eugene mine was never In
better position than uow for working 011
a large scale. There Is ore enough
blocked out to keep the mill running
steadily for tbe next eight years, and
everything Is in readiness for starling
up in full blast on almost a day's notice.
Tbe town very naturally feels keenly
the shutting down of the mine. However, there are two large sawmills close
by in full operation and the place is
holding its own very well.
Will Develope his Property.
S. E- Pumpelly, wbo left for Minneapolis, a few weeks ago, expects to
return iu a short time. Mr. Pumpelly
is interesting considerable capital in
this part of tbe country, and this winter
will do development work 011 several
properties In the St. Marys country. He
has a fine showing in mineral, and will
push tbe work with vigor. The fact
that these properties are bo close to tbe
Marysville smelter makes the completion of tbat institution of great import
auce to him and bis company.
Two Pioneers,
Jobn She) wood and Gust Thels,  two
Perry  Creek   pioneers,   were   in  town
Tuesday.    These meu came to South
Hist Kootenay yeard ago, and duiing
the time lhat tbey have been here, they
have done much for the mineral
advancement of this section. Both men
have great confidence in tbe placer and
'in.nt/. of I'erry creek, aud with good
cause, as they have spent time and
money in development work in tbat
particular section. The Herald would
he pleased to see these two gentlemen
strike it rich. They deserve it, because
tbey have labored lor it.
FALL RACE MEETING.
One Will be Held In Cranbrook on Ihe 27th
uf Nexl Month.
The Cranbrook Turf and Athletic
Association will hold their fall race
meeting 011 Monday October 27th. Au
excellent programme of horse races is being arranged. Posters aud programmes
will soon be issued giving full particulars, I.ocal horseman ure cordially
invited to give their attention to tbe
meeting, as every effort is being made
to nuke the meeting one of the best
ever held in the country.
Died
On Tuesday morning, Sept. 16, 1902,
Anna Elizabeth, eight year old daughter
of Mr.and Mrs. 0 Uremner. Funeral ser-
Iccs were held at the residence Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 by Rev. Beacbam,
assisted by Rev. McKillop of Lethbridge, ami the remains interred iu tl e
Craubrook cemeleiy.
When the news til link* Bessie's death
became known throughout tbe towu,
many tears were shed nud many hearts
saddened. For some lime il wus known
that tier end was not far away, yet tier
dentil was a terrible shock to the family
and to idl wlio knew her. A sweeter
kittle child never lived. Quiet, modest,
a perfect lit,le lady at all times, with a
disposition and manner that won her
way lo the hearts of all. She will be
sadly missed, aud yet her memory will
be sweet solace to all who are sorrowing
over her.
A Change At Beadle's.
Iv II. Hunt, of Portage Is Prairie,
arrived iu the city yesterday to take a
position iu R. lv. Beattie's drug store.
Mr. Hunt is a graduate of Ontario College of Pharmacy, and lias had several
years practical experience as a dtuggJBt.
This step has been rendered necessary
by the increase in Mr. Beattie's business
and with tbis assistance he will have
more time to devote to bis store. Hereafter it will be possible to secure anything in the way of medicine at night*
As Mr. Hunt will sleep iu the store
building and a night bell will be put iu
to use in case of need, Tbis change
will be appreciated by the people of
Craubrook, and will give to Beattie's
drug store a greater degree of popularity
than ever.	
How Advertising Pays
"I know tbat advertising in The Hertd
pays," said h. E. Beattie, tbe druggist.
"I gave it a good test last week when I
advertised a special sale of books for
Saturday night. Tbe people began lo
enquire nbout the sale on Fri lay, and
Saturday they were after tbe books.
Before I closed tint night I sold over
200. Tbat is ample evidence to me tbat
the people read Tbe Herald, and that
if a merchant wants to talk to tbe
people of Cranbrook, be must use its
columns."
Mr. Beattie is a live merchant with
the largest stock of drugs, druggist snr ■
dries and stationery in East Kootenay.
He has been a good advertiser, simply
because be knows that advertising
pays,

that the winter will prove very good and
that next spring business will open with
increased activity. There is noquestion
but that there will be a vast amount of
work done around here next spring and

PARTY LINES.
The movement tbat Is now on foot In
British Columbia toward placing fuiure
political contests on party Hues bas
reached a stage where the result is no
longer In doubt. The day of personal
and Irresponsible government In this
province is passing away, and a dawn
of a new era is now al hand. The Turner government, the Cotton govcrumeut
the Martin government and the
Dunsmuir government will linger as Unpleasant memories. Hereafter
one of tbe two parlies of the
Dominion will       be       held       re
sponsible for legislation in British Columbia, ami tiie results cannot but prove
beneficial.
Tbe editor of the Kossland Miner,
commenting Upon ihe cnange, sizes up
the situation In thc following able
manner:
With the advent of party li«es in provincial politics It Is anticipated lhat the
discussions In the legislature will In future be raised above the county council
level, and that the best men in both
parties wlil be induced to take part in
the affairs of the province. It is generally conceded lhal the rccorus of the
various nondescript governments which
have a til it: led tlie province have nol
been soch as to win confidence iu the
present system. Tne party system bas
been proven the best way of securing
responsible government in nearly every
civilized country, aud there cau hardly
be any valid reason brought forward to
show that it will nol be a success In
British Columbia, it bas often been
asserted that thc bitterness of party
strife leads frequently to misgovern
ment, but surely the exhibitions of bitterness which we have so frequently
witnessed in thc legislative halls of
llritish Cututnbia have been such as to
convince the electors that a change to
federal party lines can not produce anything worse. The province is up
against a condition and not a theory,
and those wbo have its welfare at heart
will do well to rtllect over the present
state of affairs.
lu declaring for party lines last February the liberals evidently considered
It more advantageous for their particular party as well as for the province,
aud now that the conservatives are
about to take a similar step at lhe llev-
' elstoke convention the i|uealiuu will be
placed beyond the problematical. The
two greal parties will then get dowu to
business and each will endeavor to
formulate a policy wtilcb it considers
for the best Interests of tbe province,
That It will be a critical period lu tbe
history of both parties there can be no

Senator Templeman will visit Cranbrook and Fernie on his return to Ottawa from thc coast.
John Houston was elected president

of British Columbia.
It looks as if there was trouble ahead
In the hybrid cabinet of British tJolum*

Colonel Trior failed In his ambition to
be selected an the leader of thc Conservative forces In British Columbia. Tbe
Colonel was converted to party lines too
late In the day.
The Wllmer Outcrop should understand thai the Herald Is not criticising
Mr. Wells as themember for North-east

HOW IS THAT SUIT?
Just a little worn, eh? What you need is a new suit. One
that will wear, one that will look well at all times, and
that will not cost too much money. We can fix you out.
We have a fine selection of suitings to choose from and,
what is more, you can depend upon the quality.
WE GUARANTEE A FIT.
