B.C. CEMENT CO. IN
I ANNUAL SESSION,'
COOP REPORT
The Third _nnual General meeting of
the Shareholders of the British Columbia
Portland Cemenr Co. Limited, was held
at the Head Office of the Company, 615
Hastings Street West, Vancouver, B. C.
Thursday the 6th day of February 1913,
at Four O'clock P. M.
It was noted the following shareholders
were present:
J. K. Harvey, K.C., L. W. Shatford, M.
P.P., W. A. Rutherford, B. C. Alexander,
L W. Stone, C. R. Briggs, F. L". Stacey,
J. J. E. McCague, John Orr, Ward M.
W.nite, A. E. Underwood, S. S.Knill, H.
C. Hurry and R. I. Verral.
The Proceedings were opened with
Mr.'J. A. Harvey, K.C. the President, in
the chair, and Mr. C. R. Briggs, the Secretary and Treasurer acting as Secretary
of the Meeting.
Upon the request of the Chairman, the
Secretary read the notice of calling the
meeting and proof of mailing same to all
shareholders of record.
Preliminary Routine.
After noticing that a quorum was present, the business was proceeded with.
The Minutes of the last annual meeting
of the Shareholders, he d on the First
day of February 1612, were read and upon
motion were approved. Minutes of the
various Director's and Executive Committee Meeting held during the year were
likewise reAd and approved.
The Chairman then called for the reading of the Report of the Auditor, Alfred
Shaw, showing the condition of the Company's affairs as at the close of business
on the 31st day of December .1912. Ex
planation of various items being made by
Mr. C. R. Briggs, the Treasurer, the report was ordered filed.
The Treasurer's report including the
financial statement of the Company, as
at December 31st, 1912, was then read by
• the Treasurer.
Receipts, .$164,379,63, Disbursements,
$164,376,63, Liabilities, $725,325.30. Assets $725,325,30.
Treasurer's Report.
The Treascrer's Report of the Company
has shown steady progress during the entire year. Bond and Stock subscriptions
have been increared from $255,000.00 to
a total of $338,800 00. We now have
ahout 275 Shareholders, a large majority
of whom are residents of British Colum-
dia. Our receipts from Subscribers during the year have amounted to $130,484,
aud from other sources, chiefly Bank advances, $32,566 51. The total receipts to
date from the sale of our securities
amounts ta $231,576.00.
Considering the tightness of the money
market during 1912, from the investment
point of view, I think the company has
been quite fortunate in being able to
finance itself so successfully, for it must
be remembered that there • are no large
Shareholders on our list. This makes
our Company almost entirely a British
Columbia concern, and as such, one that
should have the hearty support of all loy
al British Columbians, who believe in
encouraging and fostering a home industry.
Hereto attached is a detailed statement
of the Receipts and Disbursements, and
a condensed statement of the Assets  and
Continued on page 6.

the Kettle Valley railway bridge across
the Fraser River at Hope will begin with

Nothing definite has been learned re
garding contracts from Osprey lake to
Princeton on the K. V. railway. The
rightofway has not yet been purchased
but a move is expected within a few days
to en_ble an early start as soon as spring

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
P. W, Gregory, P.L.S., is surveying
the flat owned by Mrs. S. L. Allison into
lots. The positiou, within a stone's
throw of Princeton, and the soil, makes
this addition a good investment. Some
day, no doubt, a bridge will be built
across the Tulameen connection this site
with Princeton direct and bringing it
within two minutes walk of the center of
town

MINES AND MINING-
GEOLOGIST pi
THE FIELD
Cox & Uhler have had very satisfactory returns from nearly a car of ore shipped to the Granby smelter for testing
purposes. They now know that their
ore i_ of the shipping class even against
extremely high cost in getting it to rail.
With a good margin of financial safety
under these expensive conditions a large
profit may be expected when the Kettle
Valley railroad affords transportation on
Fivemile. Cox & Uhler have persevered
in their development work and are fnlly
entitled to reap a big reward in their
mine.
Charles Camsell carried out the following work during the summer of 1912.
1.—Examination of gold copptr deposits
of Kruger mountain at the southern end
of Okanagan Vailey. 2 —A brief study
of the copper deposits at Copper mountain, Similkameen district, \^nere the
BrlltStf Columbia Company hae been for
the last year carrying out some important development work with a large staff
of men. An interesting discovery of an
extinct volcano was made near White
Lake in the Okanagan Valley.
A feature of the mining survey last
year was the discovery of the remains of
extinct dinosaurs in Alberta.
Record Mineral Output
The output of the   mines  in   Canada,
metal and non metal, breaks all   records
for the year 1912.    Tbe  government  returns give  the  total  increase  at   nearly
thirty  million   dollars.        For  the  year
there wa< the largest total _ver produced,
amounting    to     $133,127,489.       British
Columbia is second amond the provinces,
Ontario    being    first    with  $51,323,134,
and ,B. C. $-29,555,323.    A feature of particular interest during the year has  been
the continued and extended development
of ore reserves.   The satisfactory  results
from these operations particularly in the
case of the nickel-copper ores of the Snd-
bury district,- the Porkcupine gold ores
•of Ontario and a number of the copper
and lead deposits of British Columbia,
point to much greater annual outputs in
the future.   Of the total  production in
1912 a value of $61,177,989 or nearly 46
per cent is credited to the metal, and$71-
949,500 or 54 per cent to non-metallic
products.   With the exception of petroleum every important mineral in Canada
shows an increaeed  production in  1912,
in so far as value is concerned.   In  the
case of silver only, is there a decrease in
quantity, and this slightly less than  two
per cent, the increase in- total  value of
silver being due to the much higher price
obtained for the metat during the year.
It is a matt.r of regret to have  to report
a continued decrease in the production
of petroleum The Canadian outpnt of
this product a few years ago was about
50 per cent ol domestic consumption.
At the present time not over five per
cent of Canada's consumption of petroleum and its products is derived from domestic sources.
THE PYTHIAN BALL.
The Knights of Pythias ball on Monday evening proved a very enjoyable affair aud was well attended. Prof. Legg's
orchestra gave satisfaction and the merry
dancers responded with that rythm of
action which is the musician's delight.
The ladies' gowns were the best yet observed in a Princeton ball room, lending
charm and beauty to the vivacious scene.
The supper was excellent and abundant,
Kntghts are to be congratulated on the
success of their first ball, causing many
to look forward to future like functions
giveu under their auspices.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE;
Intelligence and reason go handin
hand. Brute force is the .club of the arrogant and ignorant.
Unhappy is the being who cannot see
h's neighbor prosper without feeling envious—to him will be measured with twofold interest as he metes to others.
Nevei return evil for evil.   The law of
compensation rewards and ch-fetises with
hairbreadth accuracy and infallible justice.
All knockers are dwarfminded and
selfish—boosters are broad guage and
useful citizens.
Women alone can deal with the evils
of their sex : Men have been tried and
are proven failures.   Votes for women.
The, successful person or cause will
always be the subject of unfair criticism
it is the fire which proves the worth of
gold and takes away any dross that may
ding to it it is a good sign to be criticised even  unfairly
If men are the salt of the earth, women are undoubtedK the sugar. Salt
ii necessary—sugar is a luxury. Vicious men are salt peter; stern men are
rock salt; nice men are table salt. Old
maids are brown sugar; good-natured
matrons are loaf sugar; and pretty girls
are pulverized sugar. Please pass the
pulverized sugar.—Summerland Review

daylight for a few minutes. The price
is so low that anyone is enabled to be
convinced of its real nature. It is indeed

shining Cross is made of a stone, which
is found only near Jerusalem and of which
already the Bible speaks as the Luminous
Stone in picturing Solomon's temple.

No  reasonable  objection  can be
taken  to capital  from the  United
States or any foreign country being
invested in tbe Similkameen.    It is
welcome always not only as a means
of development  but  as  a  friendly
indication    of    helpful   intentions.
Absentee owners  or investors may
benefit this  district  quite as much
as if they were corporeally present,
providing they returned a small percentage   in   improvements,   betterments  of any  kind.    The kind of
investor or  company to which objection was   made in these columns
three or four weeks ago is one who
'skins' the mineral property or any
other, returning none of the profits
in local  benefit   beyond   the necessary payroll and small accidental or
incidental   disbursements.    A company which runs stores, shops, &c,
in  connection with its main works,
patronizing the local businesses only
as obliged  to, working   its employees three   hundred    and sixty-five
(more if it could)   days in tbe year
is  nothing   more    than   a  slavish,
selfish,    moneymaking    monopoly,
of small  benefit  to a  town or district.    Tbe farmer fallows his acres,
returning gladly  some of the good
extracted   from   them, but the monopolist  returns nothing  and   expends nothing  in expansion or development   beyond   his  own  greed
for selfish  gain.     Star  is not one
of that political party which shouted 'no  truck  nor trade with Uncle
Sam' during elections, it stands for
universal  free   trade and universal
peace.    It  will  never  defend  monopoly or that principle of absentee
ownership  which   grinds  out  the
last red cent to swell enormous dividends  among    foreign   moneybugs
holding  every  nickel so tightly as
to  give  the  emblematic bird pain.
If any gold mining company in the
Similkameen feels hit or hurt at the
foregoing it  is  hoped that the end
will justify the means and that soon
a generous, energetic policy resulting    in  improvements,   expansion
and purchase will  take place.    Let
the old tightwad methods give place
to    a   live-and-let-live   directorate
then there will be prosperity where
now the  pall of depression  hangs
heavily around. ifl!..'
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The  nations   crazed    with   war
fever are sitting up nights straining
their brains  for  some  new scheme
to raise money.    When oue  nation
votes a huge  sum   for arming then
all the others get busy and raise the
war footing  another  notch.    And
so the silly seesaw goes on, each accusing  the other of warlike intentions but denying any such attitude
for their  own part.    One reads of
'armed  peace,'   and    to   'preserve
peace prepare for war.'    The use of
these phrases by  the jingoes is the
shallowest  of subterfuge  and  will
not  stand   the   tests of analysis, or
logic.     The  emperor of Germany
says he is for peace/ yet he employs
scouts in   the air, in the water, under the water and on land, ali looking for  trouble.    He is   'for peace'
yet he levies on  everything taxable
in   preparation   'for war.'    So con-
trastive  and   inconsistent   are   the
spoech and actions of this monarch
by 'divine   right'   and  ultra jingo
that all doubt his sincerity and veracity.
Premier McBride delivered an exceedingly interesting and .practical
address at the University of California which Star commends to all
for perusal and serious thought. It
is a fact, as the Premier hints, that
too little practical education is given
in the universities, hence many misfit and derelict 'grads' are found in
the humbler occupations. Of course
all honest labor is honorable and
the.selfmade person is always superior to the artificial student who
borrows his education. What is
needed today is the thinker. For
thought, spirit, is the great psychic
force which rules the world. If
universities were to add metaphysics to their curricula it would help
in the study and understandings!
the Omnipotent, to know whom is
deliverance from all worry and fear
and the physical ills these beget.
Premier McBride has rendered a
real and lasting service to the cause
of education with his well chosen
words. iUffl
Only one thing the British government has left undone so far, to
round out a splendid career of reform—woman suffrage.
