Board Decides to Drop Fourth
Year and Not Take
Monday evening the Cranbrook
School Bonrd met in special session
to consider principally the report of
the returning officer on the recent
high school building plebiscite. Those
present were chairman F. H. Dezall
and Trustees Mrs. Miles, D. Gilroy,
W. Henderson and Mrs. Jnckson.
The result of the poll was reported
as' follows:
By-Uw No. 282
Aye      34
No   158
Spoiled       26
By-Uw No.  283
Aye      74
No   130
Spoiled       15
A discussion arose as to the result of the ballot taken. The board
realized that it was incumbent upon
them to take some action to lessen
as far as possible the congestion that
seems Inevitable in the fall at the
high school. After considering the
situation for some time, the following
resolution was adopted:
Moved by Trustees Miles and Gilroy—That the board regrets the recent decision of the ratepayers, and
is of the opinion that in order to relieve the congestion at the high school
the fourth year class will have to be
discontinued and that students from
points outside the school district will
have to bc denied admission to the
high school at the commencement of
the fall term.—Carried.
A letter was received from Mr.
Denison Wilson re a float to represent the public school on the occasion
of the celebration of Canada's Diamond Jubilee. It was resolved that
as school will be closed and students
and pupils out of the jurisdiction of
the school board on July 1st, it will
not be possible for the board to put
a float in the parade.

We are of the opinion that the best interests of Cranbrook and community will be served hy the arrangements

Amalgamations of both weekly and daily newspapers
are taking place in Canada and the United States continually,
as more and more business men are coming to realize that
\; the newspaper game Is one particular line of business In which
; competition li not the life of trade. It may be true, as the
• Kingston Whig-Standard commented In January last with re*
\ gard to the amalgamation of the Kingston Whig with the
; Kingston Newt Standard, "That conflict has always developed
; the best In journals as in men, but in the majority of cases the
conflict did not make the newspaper proprietor any stronger
with his banker."
It coats a lot of money to publish a good newspaper
to-day, and the amalgamation of the two Cranbrook papers
wlll give to the city of Cranbrook a better paper than before,
at a lesser cost to the merchants, to whom the publisher Is
t  bound to look to for support.
It Is more than possible that Cranbrook's better in-
%  terest has been sacrificed In the past by Its papers "scrapping
with each other/' Instead of using their time and energy to
?  promote the bigger things that are more vital to Its develop-
t  ment and advancement.

dates have not been set for these

lodges came up for discussion. In
connection therewith reference was
made to a recent memorial service
held in Medicine Hat. where all the
societies of that city joined in one
giand memorial function. Every
iodge, of all denominations, joined
in stein*? that the day was fittingly
marked, lt was suggested here that
the service mijrht take the form of a
grand parade to the cemetery, followed by a well arranged outdoor service. The idta was considered a good
one, and steps were taken by the
lodge t(. have its committee meet the
committees from other lodges, with
the object of putting into effect the
idea suggested.
The K.P. Lodge also appointed a
committee to arrange for a suitable
float to be entered in the 1st of July
celebration parade.
An unusual number of cars parked
outside the Auditorium on Monday
indicated that something of unusual
interest to thc Odd Fellows' Order
was taking place. Nearly fifty members of Hullivan Lodge, Kimberley,
were in the city that night, and with
an equally good turnout of local
members the lodgerootn presented an
animated appearance. The occasion
for the friendly invasion was a desire of the third degree team of
Kimberley to demonstrate their ability to put on some degree work
;n the order, they having recently
won a competition in their home
lodge against a team of past noble
-strand* in thi- work. They demonstrated to the satisfaction of thc Key
City members that their claims had
not been placed too highly, for all
the member:' present enjoyed their
presentation of the impressive degree.
Thc occasion was ulso made the
occasion for an official visit of Bro.
Pontni Johnson, the District Deputy
Grand Master, to Key City Lodge,
and hi* was warmly welcomed. Members of Durham Kncampment, from
Kimberley and Cranbrook, also attended the meeting, making a friendly visit, under the leadership of Bro,

addresses, etc., on the  occasion   of   the lodge, and mustered a good turn-

The executive committee of thc
National Committee for the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation, Ottawa, has issued some
printed matter that is available for
distribution, and is of considerable
assistance in the planning of festivals, celebrations and programs of aii
kinds for the 1st of July. There i-
no intention of robbing any place of
its right to put on a program independent of any other place, but there-
has wisely been some effort made to
keep the central purpose of all the
celebrations well to the fore.
One little booklet contains genera!
suggestions for the guidance of committees in charge of local celebrations, and has many useful hints
which might be followed, included
in which are suggested programs for
some public community function
during the day, in which the school
children may take part. The decora.
tion of historic monuments, sites or
graves is also suggested, and the wisdom of getting the assistance of all
national societies, etc., is stressed.
It is also suggested that the celebration might fittingly be extended over
Saturday, July 2nd, into Sunday,
July 3rd, on which day the churche*;
arr urged to especially join in thanksgiving services, following orders of
service which are being prepared by
the national committee. Hints on

Addresses to be given by those in
charge of the celebrations in different parts of the country have also

»Inn lhc- waters nl the Mississippi and its tribtl-

when llu- first breaks appeared in the levees, but
from the fan that they wen- holding, and such a
tremendous volume of water   was "lieing  carried j
down tin- river, thai New Orleans, some miles from .
the actual outlet uf tin- river, was threatened,   Then I
il was that the artificial breaks had to be made ini
the embankment  to relieve the  flow lower down, j
Thousands of acres were inundated in this way. and
thousands of people made homeless, this lieing considered necessary in order to save the city from the
\i first sight it seems like sacrificing lhe rural
interests for the sake of the city people, and one
can quite understand there would be a good many
folks well established on the fertile land, and not
quite believing themselves jto be ip danger, who
would prefer to lake their chances, and who sought
to drive off the rescue parties scut to remove them.
Hut it does set in a strange commentary on human
engineering endeavors when it is not foreseen
that lbe work can be so well done in one place as
to make it threatening elsewhere. That is the seemingly inextricable problem which faces the government in attempting to restrain the mighty Mississippi
in flood time. Millous will have lo he spent in repairing tin- damage tin*, adjacent country has suffered from tlie floods this year and in rehabilitating
tin- settlers who were forced to vacate the areas
afterwards given over to the floods. While it would
cost an inconceivable sum to keep the river in
bounds, and to properly control the flow, it looks
as if it will have to be undertaken, to prevent a repetition of the catastrophe of the present season.
After all. the Mississippi Valley seems a little
remote in this part of the country, but it is worth
remembering that there are rivers iu this province
that parallel the conditions in the southern States,
and this year, if there is a sudden burst of verv hot
weather continuing for some time, conditions will
soon become perilous, t lid timers recall many years '
ago, after a protracted winter season, the Fraser j
reached unprecedented high levels, and got out of all
control, causing immense damage, following which
engineers were instructed to gather data to prevent its recurrence, which they did. and there it rested. The country has been saved some money thereby, but the entire saving of all these years mav be
swept away at one stroke if the river again goes on
the rampage this vear.   Prevention is verv costly.

AN interesting publication has just been scut
throughout the province by the government
at Victoria, detailing the result of the recent
investigation made of the activities of the Oriental
immigrants' into this province, in every sphere, this
being made possible as the result of a survey carried out. the results of wliich were prepared for a
report presented lo tlie Legislature during the last
The report is concerned mainly with the activities of the Chinese. Japanese and Hindus in the
province. It is proved by the investigation, strange
as it may seem to some, that there is only one real
oriental menace to fear, so far as B.C. is concerned,
and that is from the Japanese. Even this is not as
alarming as some would make out. There were, it
is true, astounding increases in the Japanese population in the early years of this decade, but this seems
to have diminished in the last two years, hut even
al that it leaves ihe Japs wilh au increase uf three
hundred and twenty-three pcr cent, since 1901, and
the figure is now close on twenty thousand. The
Chinese have noi increased their numbers at such
an alarming rale, the figures showing, as a matter
of facl, that lhe Chinese population for the past
four years has been almost stationary, and may he
due for a decrease iu the future. This is caused by
the fact that while the Japanese have mostly settled
down to family life, the Chinese are not increasing
Iheir numbers in this way. The Chinese population
is now estimated at a little over twenty-five thousand. The Hindu, not very long ago considered a
coining menace to the province, is rapidly decreasing
in numbers, there being now only a thousand or so
remaining in H.C.
The industrial activities of the oriental are shown
to he quite widespread, hut centre very largely on
Ihe laud. In the city of Cranbrook the Chinese are
shown to hold ahout $60,000 worth of city lots,
while Japanese own aboul $19,000. ln the entire
district outside lhe city, there are no Chinese giveu
as owning land in the Fort Steele assessment di
tricl, while Japanese are shown to own about 500
acres valued at about $13,000.
The entire report makes a comprehensive presentation of the situation, a study of which would
put one in a position to be intelligently informed
ou a question on which there is too little really
THE "boom" town is ever alluring to large numbers, in that it seemingly offers the opportunity to grow up with the place. To get in on the
ground floor, so to speak, at first blush, prompts
great numbers to rush lo the new place, where they
will find many others who had been attracted in the
same manner.
They seek their new home with the avowed
purpose of growing up wilh the town, and that determination serves as au impetus lor extra effor:.
If. perchance, the ambitions of the founders are
realized, those with that determination to grow with
the place will succeed, provided the determination
is sincere and a proportionate amount of energy
is displayed in their efforts.
Have you grown with Cranbrook? Have yon
kept pace with its advancement and development?
There has been no boom here, as that term is
usually applied to lhe growth of places that spring
to life over night, only to fade away almost as
quickly, There has been, however, a healthy, steady,
wonderful growth and advancement here for the
past ten years. True, there has been no stream of
husiness added to the normal growth to cause the
population to increase tuo rapidly to be permanent.
The growth in wealth and health has heen phenomenal. The advancement in civic improvements,
its street, schools, residences and business places,
is such that there is just cause for exceeding pride.
There have been and are now as great opportunities for success here as there are in other new-
towns. The opportunity to grow up with the
place, lo get in on the ground floor holds as good
iu Cranbrook as the other places. If your desire to
grow up with the city is real, there will be the
accomplishment. If your desire to grow up with
Cranbrook has been sincere and the effort expended
sufficient, you have grown up with it.
This city is going to continue lo grow and develop. You may if you choose grow with it. When
you do mp. yours and the city's growth will he mutual. In just the proportion in which your aid is
given in the advancement and development, will the
return be by the city.

mnde against evil effects which would
surely follow in Hint even't. The
snow fall in the Columbia-Kootenay
trench was much heavier last winter

all the snow wliich fell during the

the high hills since that period closed is packed, ready to melt. If a

high water is bound to be the result.

Fenians. A British spy had kept the
authorities informed, and the war
vessel was at the designated point of
landing to gather in the "forlorn
hope" of the invnders on the coast
of Ireland. This "spy," after all the
danger was over, had written nn interesting account in Blackwoou'3
Magazine. Ilis name was not given,
hut he evidently run great risks of
heing discovered, as he waa frequently given certain jobs to do tha'. entailed need for great caution and
concealment. Other Irish sympathizers arriving as passengers by the
ocean steamships to take part in tlie
conflict were promptly arrested as
they landed on the quays, and so
the rebellion uf lM.r> was nipped in
the hud. Much dissciitioii and dis-
satisfaction then arose within the
Fenian councils. A great deal of
money was spent aud the attempt had
proved a failure,
The failure of the rising in 18fi5
caused a serious division among the
adherents of the cause in both Ireland and America, and thi- Fenian
Brotherhood was split into two hostile enmps. Many sympathizers were
languishing behind the bnrs of British
prisons, with an uncertain fate
awaiting them when they were arraigned for trial, and their comrades
in the United States bitterly blamed
Stephens nnd O'Mallory for the i
fiasco. Consequently the majority in
America revolted and seceded from VVWWA1
the Stephens faction, claiming- that1 *
he had wilfully misrepresented the
state of affairs that existed in  Ire
land, also the enthusiasm that was
said to sufficiently dominate the people there to induce them to take up
arms when the American contingent
arrived. i
The seceders from the Stephens'
faction met in Cincinnati. Ohio, in
September, 1865, a very large num- j
her of delegates being present frnm I
all the states of the Union- After
the usual preliminary oratory and
the adoption of several resolutions,
tbe delegates formed themselves into a body which they termed "The
Senate Wing of the Fenian Brotherhood." They ridiculed the idea of
invading Ireland successfully, and
changed their base nl' operations.
"On to Canada" became their slogan,
and (lie idea was so popular that they
quickly secured the allegiance of
thousands uf disappointed Irishmen
wbo were anxious and ready to strike
a blow at Kngland in any quarter.
It was resolved to form an Irish Republic (on paper), ns the Fenians
were without territory until they captured it. This was accomplished by
the adoption of a constitution framed >■
on the model of that used in the
United States. Its provisions inelud-
d thc usual regulations "both civilI
and military" for a Republican form
of government, and its unanimous
acceptance by the delegates was received with glad aclaim.

The main object of the provincial l
convention is tu discuss the disposition of the Canteen Funds. As the
hoard of trustees have at their dis-
posal a sum in excess of $250,000.00,
various proposals are being advanced,
among them being the ideal uht aj
certain portion of this amount should
be set aside ns a building fund to as-1
sist, by means of ioans at n nominal
ratae of interest, those branches
which aie handivapped by lack of
funds in providing suitable quarters
for their  members.
A zone meeting will be held in

of which is to consolidate the vote [
of branches in the zone jurisdiction'
on any proposition which it is con-]
sdored advisable to place before tlie!

she has spent many years
in her present position.

for cooking. At first her

to her it is better for cooking," she says.

"Build B.C."
A strange coincidence occurred thej
other dny when the (flatting was removed from the platform in the
United Church, formerly Methodist)
ut Moyie, with u view to finishing it
il in mure up-to-d&te Btyle. Under
tlie rug* was found a layer of old
newspapers, As these were being
gathered up for removal and burning
it was notived that they contained
items of direct and lasting interest to
the people of Moyie and district.
The palters, most of which were
uined, were copies of "The Moyie
Lender,"  published by  P.  J. Smyth.
Two copies only survived the wreck
but there is much of interest even in
them. The earliest copy is that of
Vol. 10, No. 20, August 24th, 1007.
The other is Vol. 10, No. 2(5, October
5th. 11107.
The first things to attract one'!1
attention in these relics of the pas!
the prominence of certain well
known names. For instance, Mr. .1.
Pitch, still one of Moyie's most esteemed citizens, appears in block letters on the front page, while Cranbrook nlso has its representatives in
the  persons of  Mr.  VV.   I!.  Wilson,
weler ami optician, and Heale & Elwoll, insurance, etc.,
When tlu- men of that town got together last winter they did not realize
perhaps that they were simply rehearsing what had been done by the
former citizens twenty years previously. Note in August 24th, 1907, is
sue.  "The  Fire  Hall."
"Excavating for the foundation of
Moyie's new fire hall was commenced
this week, and the building will be
under way in a very short time. The
members of the building committee
are in need of money and it is very
important thnt all who huve subscrib
ed should come forward and pay their
respective amounts . . . . "
Auguit 24th,  1907.—Building
at St. Eugene
In view of the recent activity of
the C. M. &■ S. Co. in building a new
conveyor to curry the ore from the
dumps into the new crushing plant,
it is worthy of note thnt the same
thing was being done twenty years
A large addition is being built
on tho north side of the St. Eugene
mill, which will be fitted up with a
conveyor for sorting purposes and
storage bins for the ore. The building will be on a concrete foundation.
A long trestle will be built over the
railway track to the lake, over which
wuste will be curried out and
While litis earlier conveyor hus
gone the wny of the world, the rock
waste may still be seen piled high on
the edge of the lake."
Talk about unemployment in th
Kootenays — look at this!
"Fully a thousand miners, many of
whom ure existing in miserable quar
ters, ure out of work at Nome, and
the discouraged men are returning
to the States ns fast as they can secure the money for their passage."
August 24th, 1907—Work on the
The casual visitor to Moyie won
ders at a queer looking pier running
out into the lake just south of the
railway station.    Here it is
"The lust pile has been driven in
the tramwny out into Moyie Lake
where tht; shaft on the Cambrian
mine is to be sunk. This has heen
planked over and everything is in
readiness for sinking the casing to
bed-rock. This casing will be made
from the best of fir timbers to the
bottom of whicli will be attached a
very heavy steel shoe. This casing
will be mude watertight by menns of
n coating of clay, which will he
boarded over. After the casing has
been sunk the water will be pumped
out, and work will be begun on the
sinking of the shaft proper." The,
Cumbrian Mining Co. was formerly
known us the Black-McKay Mining
Co., Ltd.
August 24th, 1907
Of interest to labor and others:
"A typographical union hus been
organized in Crnnbrook. The wage
scale has been fixed at $21.00 per
week, and eight hours shall constitute a day's work."
"A union of the Industriul Workers of the World was organized at
the mill of the Porto Rico Lumber
Co., last Sunday."
"Edw. Elwell und Frank L. Byron
were in Moyie Wednesduy selling
stock in the Cranbrook Fire Brick
nnd Term Cotta Co."
Perhaps it is not surprising that
there was good business in stocks and
bonds, and other such like commodities, when we glunce over tlie copy
of "The Moyie Lender" for October!
*>lh, 1S)07. In heavy type ucross the'
top of the page is this statement:
"Moyie hus a payroll of $^2,(100 per
month." When we tuke into consideration the difference in the scale of
wages nt that time and of today, we
get some Ulen of thc amount of work
that  was  going  forward.
There are no less thnn five locul
hotels advertised in this issue: Hotel
has survived the general wreckage of
ihe intervening years. At that time
it wns under the management of the
Desaulniers Brotheis. Now Mr. Kel-
y is the proprietor.
October 5th, 1907—Many New
"Twenty-five new buildings have
been erected in Moyie during the pust
summer, and most of these are good
substantial residences. The list in-
■hides the new Presbyterian Church,
md the fire hall."
Speaking ubout churches, the uld
timers around the district will be
pleased to read that "Rev. Wm.
Boulton, (Methodist Church) Im-
been Invited to conduct special services at Wycliffe and Marysville tomorrow (Sunday). There will be mt
morning service here, but the oven
ing service as usual at 7.8Q, conduct
■tl by Mrs. Boulton.    All Invited."
"The Free-and-Kasy social will be
hehl on Friday evening next, October llth." Strange how history re-
peals itself! Tli is type of entertiiin-
i ne nt is jusi now becoming populur
mice more ia Moyie, but now sails
under the sobriquet of "Silver Tea,1
imt is in reality much the sumo sort
of entertainment.
The Society Girl
In  view of the  recent  rumors  of
activity  around  the  "Society   Uir
mine, it is worthy of note that . .
"Chas. Farreli intends doing some
more development work on the Society Girl this fail and winter. He intends moving up to the mine Monday
to begin operations. There nre between 800 and 400 tons of ore ready
for shipment, and Mr. Farreli
anxious to get this on the market
while the prices of lead and silver
are good ..... Several years ago Mr.
Furrell shipped $10,000 worth of ore
from this property. At thut time he
hnd a force of thirty miners employ

not anticipated that tlu* shut-down

The Plnyers' Club of the University of British Columbia is presenting
tailed "The Romantic Young Ludy."
tbis year a piny by Martinez Sierra,
The play, by thia foremo3t Spanish
dramatist, is u light and pleasing
itory of youth.
The plot involves u young Spanish
girl who, an old fashioned senti-
mentalist at heart, feels the modern
urge to be free and envies the unlettered existence of her three brothers. The romantic young lady,
played by Miss Dorothy Found, becomes attached to tbe books of a
sontimontul author, Mr. T. C, Gibbs,
and fulls in love with him. The lat-
Lor, howevt r, turns out to be a sane
nnd practical man of the world, with
a whimsical sense of humor, and the
poor niil, so roughly und suddenly
disillusioned, has difficulty in reconciling him with her ideas.
A wise old grandmother, Miss Alice
While, adds touches of real humor
to the scenes as she deftly si/.es up
the situation and helps to propel it
on to u final climax and thoroughly
satisfactory ending.
The play gives excellent opportunity for the actors und the characters
have been well chosen. Others iu

Governments Co-Operating in
Vigorous Steps to Exterminate Insect Pest
A. A. Dennys, of the entomological
branch of the dominiin department of
agriculture, and F. A. Manacle, of
the provincial government department of agriculture, arrived in the
city the beginning of the week, and
are preparing to carry out a vigorous
campaign against the inroads of the
Colorado potato beetle into the East
Kootenay district. Mr. Dennys was
here last year in the interests of this
work, and gained much knowledge of
the district, and the best methods
for attacking the pest, and with the
more extended means placed at his
disposal this season, much more effec
tive work will be possible. Mr. Mars
ack, who comes from Salmon Arm, is
a practical farmer, and has been appointed to spend the summer in this
preventive work. They have had an'
ample supply of dust placed at their
dlafoMl tUs year, and than will ba
no muH fas aay grower aat latllai
sufficient poison for their needs, while
the growers of the small patches in
the city will also be asked to co-operate to the extent of dusting their
plants at the right time. An effort
will lie made to see that every patch
of potatoes in the district affected
is properly treated, so that the control measures may be effective, and
not nullified by ths carulesanees or indifference of a few growers.
Mr. Manack will give his ttffle almost exclusively to this part of the
work, while Mr. Dennys, whose territory includes the Windermere Valley
and some portions of the fruit districts round Kootenay Lake, will also
carry on investigation and research
work respecting fruit insect pests in
Mrs. Dennys and family, who were
here lust summer, will arrive a little
later, probably spending the months
of July and August in the city with
Mr. Dennys. They hnve made their
home In Vernon during tho past winter.

General Manager's Report
Mr. Blaylock's report in part is u
The yenr just finished has beeit
ery successful in many ways; nol
inly has the tonnage of metal pro-
luced been larger than that of an)
ither year, but the percentage of tht
netals in the ore which has been re
oveifd in matketoble form has been
.ery much increased, while costs have
jeen reduced in most departments.
Compared with 11)26, the gold pro
luction hus increased 144 per cent-
he si.vor 52 per cent., the coppei
rom practically nothing to 10,631
ons; the total lead production war
ncreased by approximately 38 pel
cut.; the refined lead production war,
ncreased 21 per cent, and the reined zinc production by 60 per cent
During the year 5567 tons of leac
i bullion were exported and also
:nc concentrates containing 5819
ons of recoverable zinc.
New Construction
Of construction authorized at the
^ginning of the year: The Moyie re-
reatment mill waB completed and put
nto operation; thc enlargement off
he Sullivan mill was practically fin-1
shed and should be put into opera-
ion early in January if sufficient
tower is available. Much new work
it Trail in plant and buildings was
dso carried out.
In July authorization was given to
nstall a 3000 kilowatt steam turbo
generator plant at Kimberley with
.■iith the Moyie concentrator This
he necessary power line to connect
.vas put in operation in Christmas
.veek. This plant was considered
necessary as an insurance against
shortage of power from the East Koo-
enay Power Company.
Recreation halls were built at each
of the three camps at Kimberley..
Late in thc year authorizations
.vere given to add a coarse crushing
plant to the St. Eugene mill; to add
i coarse crushing and receiving plant
to the customs mill at Trail; to construct several more miners' cottages j
it Kimberley; to build a new 1500}
kw. electric furnace plant; and to'
build a new 50-ton sulphuric acid ■
plant, and other additions at Trail.
The costs of supplies were about j
the same as during   1926.   Wages
were less owing to a very consider-
able drop in the metal prices.
Sullivan Improvements
A great deal of improvement has!
been made in the operations of the
Sullivan mine during the year, j
Heavier rails have been laid In the.
main haulage ways and the tunnel]
locomotives have been doubled in j
weight, resulting in the ore trains,
being more than doubled In site.
The timber in the main tunnel has
been replaced with concrete and
steel. An underground electric station has been added whieh keeps the
haulage system up to full voltage.
The method of handling the whole
undeground traffic is much improved.
There has been a very satisfactory
reduction in the cost of mining.
As the Sulliven ore body develops,
it become more apparent that this
ore body is not such a simple problem. The vein has shown so very
complicated folding, often on a very
targe scale. This makes it most important that the best geological information be obtained in order to ultimately extract the greatest possible
amount of ore at the lowest practical cost.
The ore supply at the Kimberley
concentrator was at all times satisfactory. The grade wu practically
the same as during 1924 and 1925.   |
The East Kootenay power supply1
was fairly satisfactory till the month I
of December, when trouble was experienced at both power plant* and |
both thc mine and mill operations
were very badly crippled. I
Concentrating Cneta Dawn

those of 1925.    The recoveries during  the  year  have  also   been   very
satisfactory and show a great deal oi
j improvement over even the excellent
work done in the last three months
. of 1925.    This is particularly so in
• the case   of the recovery of zinc in
j the zinc concentrates.    Thc grades of
the concentrates have also been very
| satisfactory.    Tha metal content of
bath tha lead and zinc concentrates
I has bean materially mereased.
The 1000-ton extension has been
almost completed and can be put into
operation as soon as sufficient power
is available to run it. Very little
change was necessary to increase the
tonnage from 3000 to 4000 tons
daily; the main change was that the
primary bull mills were increased
from 8 foot milis to 10 foot mills and
the old 8 foot mills added to the secondary curcuit. Some extra flotation units were added and advantage
was taken of the chance to install
weight-o-meters on each of the prim
ary ball mills.
There is a great deal of heat required in the flotation cells. This
neat is supplied by a thoroughly up-
:o-Uute boiler plant. It is possible,
•vhere heat is used in this inanuer to
extract a large percentage of the
,-juwer contained in the steam aud still
.iuve the most of the heat available
.or process purposes.
Auxiliary Power Used
Tha East Kootenay power supply
>vus not considered very reliable, particularly ob this company would not
.nstall an auxiliary plant in time foi
uhe winter of i»uti-27. -it wu*
.herefore decided to install a steam
.urbo generating plant of 4000 horsepower, which could run the Moyie
mil) at aii times with very cheap pow-
Ji', and act as a stand-by power plant
.or Kimberley. This plant was completed in the last days of December
*nd was in almost constant deinanu
uuring the month of January. Sufficient time has elapsed to show that
the power thus supplied is very cheap
and the plant very efficient and easy
to operate.
'lhu heat required for tne metallurgical processes is absorbed by the
Auter used in the condensers whicb
are set in the fiow of the wuter supply ror the concentrator.
Undoubtedly the power supplied by
this plant in the month of January,
1927, hus fully repaid the entire cost
of its installation.
Work at Moyie
In 1916 or 11)17 thc old St. Eugene mill was remodelled to experiment with flotation on Suilivan ores
and to retreat the St. Eugene tall-
.ngs.    The mill was burned uown jusl
jeiorc the alterations were completed.    The fire, supposed to have beei,
,et by anti-Britishers, was a very for

ihis  operation  was   not   especiall)
successful;   however,   this   material
-vas cleaned up and disposed of at a
slight gain.
When the Sullivan middlings wero
.'imshed, St Eugene tailings wen
pumped from the lake with a suction
t>ump, and retreated in this mill. The
.esuits obtained have far exceeded
-he most optimistic estimates, both as
egards recoveries and cists.
This operation has been so successful that a preliminary crushing plant

nine dumps may be worked.
The mine is also being re-examineo

Smelter Output Up
The lead smelter tonnage in thi
year waa 324,056 as against 300,000
tons in 1925.
The lead refinery has again been
much increased, going from 68,000
tons in 1924 to 103,000 tons in 1926
and to  126,000 tons in  1926.
During the year the lead refinery
was extended sufficiently to bring the
output up to approximately 145,000
tons per year.
The copper smelter and refinery
worked all year on a very limited
ore supply. There now seems to be
no possibility of a Rossland supply,
and a reverberatory furnace is being
built to smelt the Canada Copper con
Work on the Rossland mines hu
been very discouraging. The pipe
and rails are being recovered from
most of the workings. At on or
two places a little ore is being broken.
The tonnage handled in the Tadanac concentrator in 1926 was much
greater than 1925, being approximately 81,200 tons, as against 13,-
000 tons.
Probably the greatest improvement shown by any plant during the
year was in tha work dona in the rim
In 1926 the metallurgical results
in this plant were discouraging. In
1926 there was a very marked Improvement; not only did the recover-
ies exceed our expectations but there
was also a very substantial reduction
in the costs.
The workmen's co-operative committees have continued to be of great
service in helping the men and the
management in get all difficulties
smoothed out amicably and to work
for the benefit of the organisation aa

The Dominion Bureau of Statistics,
in co-operation with the provincial
department at Victoria, has made the
customary arrangements for the collection and publication nf thc annual
agricultural statistics of British Co*
lumbia for the year 1927. These;
statistics will be based upon returns
to lip collected next June from in-1
dividual farmers upon curdboard j
-schedules issued to them through the,
mails. The schedule is a very simple
one, calling only for the areas sown
to field crops und  the  numbers of|
farm animals alive on the farm in
mid-June. Upon the resulting estimates of yield, which are of supreme
importance in connection with the
movement, financing, distribution and
salo of the principal cereals, especially of wheat, of which ('anada is now
the world's leading exporter, depend.
The present plans for the collection of these statistics have been followed annually since 1017, and the
estimates based thereon have come to
be confidently relied upon by all interested in the production and distribution of Cnnndian grnin.
In connection with the celebration
this year of tbe Diamond Jubilee of
Confederation, accurate statistics nre
indispensable for a proper appreciate of the national progress, and in
order to ensure that tho statistics of
the Jubilee year may be as accurate
as possible, it is earnestly hoped that
farmers throughout the Dominion
will not fail to render the small service required by filling up and returning the schedule issued.
If any farmer should not rece:v«
the cardboard schedule by the middle
of June, he should apply for same
to the provincial Department of Agriculture at Victoria, or to the Dominion Statistician at Ottawa. Thc aim
is to obtain a completed schedule
from every farmer, as the more numerous the returns, tho more trustworthy will be the tesulting estimates.
