B.C. COPPER CO. IN
GOOD FORM FOR
PRODUCTION
MINES   AND  MINERALS.
According to the current issue of
the New. York Mining Age, the production of the British Columbia Copper Company, Ltd., for the month of
August, 1913, amounted, it is estimated
by the company's officials, to 700,000
pounds of fine copper,)2,400 ounces of
gold, and about 12,500 ounces of silver.
The report for eight months, including August, shows 5,590,624 pounds
of fine copper, 16,103 ounces of gold
and  81,023  ounces  of  silver.
During 1913,- the plant 'has been
operating at only two-thirds capacity.
Rich in Gold-Silver Values.
A conspicuously favorable feature
of the ffgures is the unusually high
gold-silver yield from the ores. It
will be noted that while the copper
production from the ores handled is
only about two-thirds that of 1912, the
gold and silver yield is very near
equal to that of the entire twelve-,
month pferiod a year ago. On the
basis of $20 an ounce for gold, and
55c. an ounce for silver, the monetary
return from these sources in 1913
1 should amount to about $117,650. This
sum will reduce the net cost of copper per pound by almost exactly 1.5
cents, representing one of the highest gold-silver yields on record for
the British Columbia Copper company.
New Options and Development.
The worst, "drawback" of the company, and this a "drawback" which is
more apparent than real, is its expenditures in taking up new properties under option. The officials realize that^-no mine lasts forever, and
have wisely adopted the-sound policy
of looking around for additional properties while these latter may be cheaply obtained, and while, too, the British Columbia company is in a favorable position for bargaining for such
proper.ti&v In 1912 there were spent
$230,000 in taking up new options and
exploring and developing them, and
similar expenditures in 1913 for about
the first six months of the year have
amounted to close to $120,000. It
appears that the expenditures for the
entire year in \ this direction will be
close to $240,000, which will add to
the operating cost per pound of copper ore produced, approximately 3.08c.
In the past years there have been
charged against options and their development, and plant additions, etc.,
expenditures (based on per pound of
copper produced) amounting to 3.08c
in 1912,-2.27c. in 1911, 2.96c. in 1910,
.and 1.80c. in 1909.
Monetary WindfallyalltRight.
The British Columbia^Copper company in the past few weeks has come
unexpectedly into funds through the
payment by its subsidiary, the New
Dominion Copper company, of interest on the latter's bonds. The New
Dominion Copper eompany has outstanding' $500,000 of 10-year 6 per cent
convertible   bonds   and   interest  pay
ment was made on coupon No. 4,. September 1, the ' disbursement amounting in all to $30,000. The British Columbia Copper company, which controls the New Dominion, was the big-!
gest single beneficiary of the latter's
disbursement, and it is interesting to;
note, too, that during the fiscal yearj
ended March 31, the New Dominion'
Copper company .operated for the fifst
time at a profit, whym approximated
$119,000. Most of this will redound
to the controlling British Columbia
Copper company, and will yield to
the latter funds coming from a rather
unexpected quarter. _
Summary is Favorable.
Considering the high market quotations for copper, and the increasing
yield in gold and silver from the ores
.handled, and considering, too, the
company's new source bf income from
its holdings in the New Dominion
Copper company, and bearing In mind
that the charges for breaking down
450,000 tons of ore have already been
entered on the books, ^tiis apparent
that the British Columbia Copper
company, Ltd., finds itself in a very
favorable position for lucrative operation in the next few months. It is
announced by the company's officials
that the plant which has been operating this year at only two-thirds capacity will be started full blast in the
near, future.
The B. C. C. C. own and have under
option about 50 claims in Voigt camp
and- on Copper mountain. They employ about 100 men and have four
diamond drills steadily at work.
E. E. Emmons, owner of certain placer
leases in this section, arrived from Seattle
on Tuesday. He will conduct an expert
representative of H. P. Parks, of Paris,
France, over the platinum bearing ground
of he district.
Locators of black sand deposits can
dispose of same providing the values are
there.
H. L. Mead, of New York city, mining engineer, is in charge of the placer
prospecting by steam drill now going
on about two miles above Tulameen.
Owners of bar and bench land have
been recently approached for options by
gold dredging agents of big firms. The
gold, platinum and black sand deposits
along the rivers are attracting considerable attention just now.

MOTORING THROUGH EUROPE
Word from L. W. Shatford, M. P. P.,
dated Vienna, Austria Sept. 19, states
that he had just eompleted a motor tour
of Germany and was enjoying the trip
immensely. From Vienna he would go
to Venice, the most picturesque city in
the world, thence to Florence where' he
"would inspect the paintings of the
masters, and on to Rome, the eternal
city. Mr Shatford has met some of the
leading statesmen and crowned heads of
Europe, always dropping a kindly hint
ofthe resources of B. C, and the Similkameen. His travels have taken more
time than he expected and it will be
another month before he arrives home.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Just in proportion to the measure
one gives to his fellowman so will the
recompense be, whether good or ill.
Our lives are governed by laws which
are as correct as revolving heavenly
bodies—the sun is never late a hair-
breath.
The materialistic spirit engendered
by the possession or pursuit of wealth
is not conducive to the higher life in
the individual or the nation.
Lay the foundations of a career on
honorable principles, justice and
courtesy and the fruitage will be happiness, prosperity and long life.
The trials and obstacles of life are
there for  a good  purpose.    Floating
down a placid stream does not develop
muscle or cause mind activity.
That person is a downright hypocrite who tries to take a cinder out of
his neighbors eye while his own are
mucky. Be right yourself before attempting to criticize.
The unlearned apostles performed
miracles but we have yet to hear of
the doctor of divinity of today doing
more than preaching sermons which
produced   sweet  somnambulism.
That day is a failure in which some
thought or deed has not helped to lift
the burden of fellow pilgrims.
The person who sacrifices character, self respect, for money-getting
will send up a pitiful wail when about
to cross the great divide.
The world is full of learning and
certificated gewgaws—how do they
compare with the humble fisherman
of pure mind who made the blind see,
and the deaf hear.
That man or woman is an abject
coward who knows he or she is wrong
and is afraid to admit it.
SPECIALS.

TA1UES IJV SAWDUST.
A large English company has recently commenced the commercially
successful production of acetone and
fusel oil from sawdust by a simple
process of fermentation.. From these
two products isoprene can be derived,
which latter can be changed into rub-
bex^merely by allowingTrtcTlieTn' contact with a small quantity of the metal
sodium. This synthetical rubber vulcanizes readily and compares favorably with the natural product in resilience, durability and price.
Acetone is used in the manufacture
of cordite, and fusel oil is used in the
manufacture of artificial leather cloth.
Previously it was chiefly obtained as
a bye-product in the manufacture of
whisky, brandy and vodka, but by this
new process it can now be extracted
much more cheaply; making a large
profit. As is calculated that these
bye-products of sawdust are worth
almost $400 a ton. As it takes only
en tons of sawdust to yield a ton of
these valuable constituents, the resultant profit is obvious.
In Europe, with its densely populated regions contiguous to the forests,
the elimination of wood-waste is an
economic essentiality, and hence methods have been evolved which, in some
cases, utilize even the leaves and roots
of trees. While this is not essential
in America at present, it is desirable
to reduce the waste which takes place
in fie different processes of transforming the standing timber into finished product, which amounts to
something like fifty per cent of the
total volume of the tree. To this end,
the Canadian Government is establishing a fully equipped Wood Products
Laboratory at McGill University in
charge of Mr. A. G. Mclntyre, B.A., B.
Sc. under whose direction experiments
will be conducted to discover new uses
for common Canadian trees and for the
enormous quantities of sawdust and
other forms of waste wood which now,
represent a money loss to the country |

OUR TRADE WITH UNITED
STATES IS ONESIDED.
The recent reduction in the tariff
by the Democratic government of
the United States is the fulfilment
of promises made by President
Wilson during the campaign of last
year. More, it is the cnlmination
of a long drawn battle between the
protectionists or monopolists and
the principles for which the democratic party stands. Under high
protection the centralization of
wealth was made possible to such
an extent that the most colossal
fortunes of any age were amassed.
Billionaires and multi-millionaires
were created at the expense of tbe
poor, the masses. Trusts and
combines controlled legislation,
gaining concessions for their illicit
influence, until the legislatures and
even the benchsufferedinreputation.
Political corruption and bossism
flourished under repubiican rule
and the whole social and business
fabric tottered with graft. The
chaqg/ of government came just in
time to save the United States revolutionary war, so unbearable had
conditions become.
Will the people be any better off
under a reduced tariff? Whatever
tends to reduce costs must have the
effect of benefitting the consumer
and whatever tends to decentralize
wealth means a fairer and more
equal distribution among the people
as opposed to a few monopolists.
President Wilson has performed a
great service for his country but his
work of reform is only half done.
He must remove every barrier to
that full and free trade which makes
for international friendship and
universal peace. To begin with
this reformation the open door policy
should be extended to every nation
or country on the American continent. As a great nation of nn-
paralled progress and natural wealth
the United States has arrived at a
stage when it should treat its continental neighbors in a generous
spirit and 'broaden' to all humanity.
Canada has always been her best
customer, last year giving more
than half of its billion  dollar  trade
to the United States. The balance
of United States exports to Canada
last year reached the enormous total
of $271,000,000, in favor of United
States. Our neighbor bought only
$138,000,000 from us while we
purchased to the value of $547,358,
264 from the United States. And
we are buying more manufactured
goods from the United States every
year. Surely some kind of reciprocal trade arrangement should be
forthcoming from President Wilson
which would enable Canada to sell
more to the United States. As the
figures show our trade is too lopsided. Come now Woodrow let us
reason together and even up this
balance of trade.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Reorganization of the Princeton
board of trade has been definitely
undertaken by the official call of
the secretary for a public meeting
next Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock
in the courthouse. The notice
states that the former officers will
retire and a new program determined. Everyone knows that an
active board of trade in an unincorporated town is the only mouthpiece by which public matters may
be voiced and placed in effective
form before governments, railway
companies or other corporations.
Problems concerning the present
and future welfare of Princeton and
district demand most careful and
persistent attention. The duty of
solving these problems lies with
the young and spirited citizens who
have an aptitude and ambition for
public service : the old citizens- are
nearing the limit of usefulness and
will all be dead, some of them forgotten, in a hundred years or more.
L,et the newer and young men carry
out the work of town building,
rearing the civic structure on foundations laid in honest and capable
administration. Full of promise
and undeveloped wealth Princeton
and district are worthy of our best
efforts and will repay a hundred
fold for any expenditure of time or
money now made.
A welcome change is overtaking
a portion of the press of America
in that they are striving to keep
their columns filled with only clean,
wholesome, reputable news. It is
no use to argue that any benefit
accrues to readers of murders, scandals, suicides, robberies, and extended police court reports. Evil
of any kind should never be given
prominence. It hardens the criminal to display his name in print and
it cannot elevate the thought of
young or old to read of another's
downfall., There is an 'ocean' of
good and refining literature for
publication : why not use it and
discard the yellow stuff? It is the
press of a country which controls
thought: let it be pure.

TEAJfSPEOVIlVCIAL  ROAD.
Editor Star—Sir: To the old timer
who has taken his pack train in to the
city of Vancouver over the Westminster road, yesterday was a revelation. The Hon. Tom.. Taylor, as
he is called, by his many friends,
and what portion of the Province do you not find them, has made
it possible to change this old time
highway into one of the finest drives
in the Dominion of Canada. The 12-
mile link between the two cities has
been connected with a modern roadbed as smooth as a billiard ball. The
Kingsway, as it Will hereafter be
known, is a section of our transprovincial highway that we are so anxiously looking for. As the road was
formally opened the crowd broke into: "He's a Jolly Good Fellow." I
thought when we sang that in-Princeton at the completion of the road
over the mountains, of the chorus we
would give there would not be a
hoarse throat, but there might be in
the morning.
Five hundred motor cars joined
in the celebration, and when my attention was called to the display,
I could not resist saying this is noth-
to what we will show you in the Similkameen here you see only the prosperity of the west, when we open the
highway through the mountains, then
the east and the west will meet.
In his address the' Minister of Works
remarked on the difficulties that were
encountered in the construction over
the mountains. We have the last link
to forge in the great highway, can we
not make this work a matter to be
pushed for the year to come. Let us
get united action on this and work
with the end in view that it shall be
completed and opened in 1915. Money
is to be spent like water to attract
people to the Pacific coast cities,
what greater attraction could be offered than to have this great permanent improvement open for the
travel. We can get this side of the
mountains to use their influence, by
united action it could be done. Let us
have as a slogan: 'The Provincial
wagon road for 1915.' Let us not wait
for the other man to do it, get out and
do what we can do. We put our own
personal affairs through with energy
and we do not realize that we have the
force if turned to public affairs that
we can accomplish a like success.
We have men connected with this
construction that can make the road
if the funds are at hand. The man
who doubts has but to view the completed  sections.
Unless all signs fail We are to have
a revival of mining. The advance
guard is scouring the hills of the
coast for desirable properties, with an
easy mode of reaching our section,
we would surprise the man who has
to be shown.
Yours truly,
H. B. BROWN.

may seem absurd, but every sane member
of our modern medical fraternity knows
that quietness, peace, and personal evenness of temper save many a doctor's fee
and   prevent   the   overfilling   of  many
sanitariums.   Anger,   the   uncontrolled
vehement action when  a man  actually
gets his so-called 'mad'  up,  is bound to
radiate a poison through a man's system.
'Brain storm' has been  rightly named,
and it does the usual great storm damage,
'Getting a grouch on' is a part of the life
plan of most of us.   Getting this same
grouch off may be equally well planned
for, but once harbored it is  not easily
shifted from our over-weighted shoulders.
A good disposition covers a multitude of
sins.   It also saves a man from  multiple
troubles, and those American   'nerves,'
which are often nothing more or less
than  the after effects of allowing   the
angry passions to rise.—Boston Times.

A Scotch clergyman describes a peculiai
phase of Presbyterian worship which he
witnessed during a tour in Canada.   He
was preaching to a Gaelic community  in
Prince  Edward Island, when  first   one
and then  another of the women—who
were seated on one side of the  church—
and   afterwards    the   men—who   were
seated   opposite—got up and  begau   to
dance, each by himself and herself,  on
the   floor   space   between.   The   whole
proceeding was solemn and decorus, and
the   minister felt as if he could  have
joined   in    the   dance.   These   strange
Presbyterians are the   Macdonaldites, a
sect founded by a Church  of Scotland
clergyman who lived a devoted life among
the Gaelic population of the island in the
early part of last century.
