THE MINING OUTLOOK!
Granby Consolidated will Not
Operate till Prices War*
rant=Money Easier.
AN INTERESTING LECTURE.
General Manager Graves ofthe Granby
Consolidated is authority for the. statement that at the prevailing pi ice of copper the Granby ymelter cannot opera'e
at the present   cost   of  production, and
that the big reduction works will only
resume operations when such action is
thoroughly warranted by the copper
markets.
New York advices state that anv early
resumption of cash payments by the
banks all over the countrv is now looked
for with growing confidence, but the conditions which this resumption mav disclose must be awaited before seeking to
enter on speculative commitments Cop
per experienced a strong advance on
Nov. 26 in both New York and London,
all grades advancing a quarter ot a cent
in the bid and half in the asked price,
making lake \%% to 13^, electrolytic 13
to ly/i and castings 12% to 13^.
A FATAL ACCIDENT.
A. fatal accident occurred at Hedley on
Tuesday last in which John McKinnon,
foreman at the Nickel Plate mine, lost
his life. He was struck on the head by a
falling rock fracturing the skull, killing
him instantly. The deceased was well
and favorably known in the Similkameen, and his aged parents have the
sympathv of the community in the loss
of a dutiful son. The late Mr. McKinnon
was unmarried and was the sole support
of his parents, who teside at Hedley.
XMAS TREE ENTERTAINMENT.
The different committees having in
charge the Xmas tree entertainment are
busily engaged getting things into shape.
The collecting committee is meeting with
g-eat success and there will be plenty of
m mev on hand to buy good things for
the child:en. A class of youngsters are
being trained to fancy drills, sing carols,
etc , an 1 there will be no lack- Of amuse-
in >nt and entertainment on the night
when Santa Claus visits Princeton.
H. A. Hincks, teller bank of B.N.A.,
Hedley, spent a part of his holidays in
Princeton last week and was fortunate in
shooting his first buck mowitch near
t >wn. The thrilling experience momen-
tirily caused a flush of exultation which
Mr. Hincks. usually cool and collected,
will be slow to forget. There are plenty
of deer now and not a few Nimrods.
The 4th of December and the weather
as mild as spring.
Second in Series was iiiuch Appreciated by Intelligent Andience.
The second in the series of lectures by
Rev. J. T. Conn, entitled " Moses, the
child, prophet and leader." was given
o -. Friday evening to a well attendid
and appreciative audience. In his introduction the lecturer traced the history of
the children of Israel in Egypt from the
time of Joseph being sold by his brethren and resold again into the house of
Pharaoh during the reigns of Hydksos. or
shepherd kings, who were usurpers and
conquerors from the north, when he was
n( w advanced and through much misrepresentation reached a chief place in
the land where his fine abilities had full
scope, in everything proving the wisdom
of' the king's choice in the position as-
igned to him.
The coming of Jacob, his presentation
ti Pbaraoh, the opening of the land of
G ischen to tbe new settlers were briefly'
yet finely sketched. The narrative re
corded in the books of Exodus, Leviticus. Numbers and Deuteronomy, showed
that God remembered his promise to
Abraham : " I will make of thee a great
nation " and the first steps in the fulfilment of that promise. We have here
given the history of the deliverance of
the people from Egypt, the making of
the nation, the giving of the laws, the
wanderings in the desert and the a«r«al
upon the border of the promised land.
He passed over the political and religious
situation at the time of the Exodus although full of interest and instruction.
The coming of Moses was the first part
fully dealt with. Forty years at the
court of Pharaoh where he was taught in
all the learning of the Egyptians. The
schools and universities of the priests in
Moses' day were famous for their scholarships. The circumstances surrounding
the birth of Moses, being hid by his
mother for a short period, his perilous
voyage under the protecting eye of his
sister on to his finding and eventual residence at Pharaoh's court were in a most
interesting and graphic manner described
by the rev. lee urer. He sketched the
going out of Moses and finding one of
his brethren being inhumanly treated by
an Egyptian, he tried to remedy it and
ignominiously fled to the desert, where
he remained forty years, making no attempt during all this time, so lar as we
know, to help his*brethren, but with a
sore heart for their afflictions.
The second part of the lecture em
braced the ?nd forty years of his life in
the desert, where he learnerl many valuable lessons, not only in self control but
in the snhool of God. At last God appeared to him in the burning bush and
told him that he was to go to the children of Israel and to Pharaoh in His
name. It is certain that the Hebrews
could not  release   themselves,   neither
could he of himself help them. All
through his life Moses showed absolute
dependence upon God : this is the secret
of his greatness and strength. The concluding part of the lecture dealt with the
3rd part of Moses' life—40 years as leader
and legislator for the Israelites in their
march to the Promised Land. The death
scene of Moses was a fine descriptive
piece of word painting which closed the
lecture, which was listened to with absorbing interest.
" Slum and prison work in  Glasgow '
will be the subject of next lecture on the
6th Dec. at 7:45.
THE BOARD OE TRADE.
Annual Meeting to be Held Thursday
Next—Election of Officers.
Election of officers and retiring president's annual address will be the lead
ing features of next Thursday night's
regular monthly meeting As there is
considerable revenue on hand and to be
collected it is to be debated in what manner the money could be most appropri
ately expended. Every member should
be present and bring along a 'bright idea*
regarding the disposition of these accumulating "monies. The Princeton board
of trade was never in better financial
standing and though its usefulness has
waxed and waned according to the energizing power infused by its official and
private members. The board has been a
force f ir good in the past and there is
reason to believe that it will continue to
be a power in the development and welfare of Princeton and district. Its agi
tation for the government telephone system and other public utilities shows that
the board is not insensible to its privileges and opportunities. Let every en
Couragetnent be giuen the board in its
loyal efforts to build up the country.
G. Murdoch has his Fairbanks standard

Pete Swanson, proprietor of the Greater.
Northern Hotel, returned last week from*.
a visit to Boundary towns, Spokane' andS
Seattle.   He reports the financial situation across the border as bad, the banks
practically refusing to  part with cash,
business transactions being   carried   on

THE MINING SITUATION.
The closing down of tbe mines
and-smelters in tbe Boundary,, consequent upon the slump in the copper market, has thrown' thousands
of men out of .employment and as a.
result the" towns in that section
which are dependent on the mines
for an existence. Will experience
a hard winter. A few Weeks back
things never looked brighter in
these mining towns, large numbers
of men were being employed at the
highest rate of wages ever paid in
the TBoiindary .when suddenly the
bottom falls out of the market and
a shjiit down is declared. Just how
long the mines Will remain-closed is
a matter £pv conjecture.-1 Probably
until copper goes up. a few cents'
It is said in some quarters that .if
the men will stand for a 10 percent,
reduction in wages; the operators
will reopen the mines But it is
not at all likely the men will consent, to this.    -.

the temporary suspi n ■■■6a of mining
■operations is a hle-sing m  disguise.

en the people v> a real z.uion of the
fact that tht:.?fu;ui:e;.j..and   permanent
prosperity'ofthe City lies in the de-
l .velopment of the fruit growing and
agricultural possibilities of the valley, and that  redoubled efforts will
.made to get all the tillable land un
der cultivation. ||There may be
more in this trend of argument
than the majority of us are willing
to admit at present."
There is a great deal of truth in
what the Sun says regarding the
advisability^f^people turning their
attention to the tilling of the soil,
from whence all true wealth springs
and not rely solely on the products
ofthe mines to build up a prosperous and lasting community; for we
see only too often the crippling of
mining towns by the manipulation'
of the stock market and- the vexed
labor disputes. Princeton is surrounded by good agricultural possibilities, and it is to the credit of
what few farmers we have, to a
large extent, that we enjoy a comparatively solid business foundation
and with better facilities for transportation and; more attention to the
farming resources we should fear
nothing in the way of fluctuating
mining stocks. J|||
I Although Princeton is essentially
a mining town, only waiting for
railway transportation for tbe development of her knowingly rich
mineral deposits, it is no reason why
those that have land suitable
for farming should phi idly by and
wait for somebody to come along
and offer them a fortune for a "mining prospect. Let them rather be
up and...doing and.engage ..in ..agricultural pursuits and,;belp to.vbuild
