CO'S REPORT.
Delay in Construction and Operation
Not fault of Company—Will
Soon Make Cement.
[Continued from last week.]
Directors' Report.
Vancouver, B. C, Dec. 31, 1912.—To
the Shareholders of the British Columbia Portland Cement Company, Limited.
I herewith take pleasure in piesent-
ing to you the Third Annual Report of
this Company and the Financial State
ment as transmitted by the Treasurer.
At the First meeting  of the  Directors
held   after   the    Annual   Shareholders
meeting in February, the following 083
cers were re-elected: J. A. Harvey,  K.C.,
|/*>resident; L W. Shatford, M. P.P., VicS
■ President, C.  R.  Briggs, Secretary ana
[   Treasurer.  'At the same meeting an Exel
cutive Committee was appointed by  the
Directors, composed of the following: L '
W. Shatford, Chairman; I. A. Harvey, R.
P. McLennan, B   C.  Alexander,  and  <f\
R  Briggs.    During the  year the  Directors held Five meetings and the  Executive Five Meetings.
Sound Financing.
The Principal business coming before
the Executive Officers for their action
during the year has been largely that of
finances, as practically all arrangements
have been completed concerning the con
struction of our works and ordering of
necessary machinery. Notwithstanding
the tightness of the money market, during the past year, the Treasurer's report
shows that $130,484.00, was collected
from Subscriptions to Bonds and Stock,
making a total collected since our oagan-
ization of $231,577.00. In addition t<*
money paid in by Subscribers, we have
s.cured from bank advances an additional $30,000. The bank has been securtf
ed t>y the personal guarantee of the Dp
reciors Through new banking arrange*
mt-nts completed during the vear, we\
no v have a line of credit amounting jto
practically $50,000.00. We have also
increased the amount of subscriptions to
our Bonds and Stock from $255,000,00 to
$338.5.00.00. This was made necessary
troiii the fact that the adjoining Coal
Company has not been in a position to
111 . t their proportion of tbe cost of the
railway spur amounting to more than
$3'.> o 10.00, and also to the fact that it has
been impossible to make certain collections, owing to the failure in business of
some of our subscribers.   As soon as the
money from the Coal Company is paid in,
it can be used as working capital or it
can be used towards the costjpf securing
additional machinery to increase the
capacity of our plant. I need not elaborate on the disbursements made during
the year as they are set forth in detail in
the Treasurer's report.

CORRECTING FALSE REPORTS-
tor Star—Sir; I wish to correct
otne erroneous impressions that seem to
have found circulation in your vicinity
concerning the B. C. Portland Cement'
Company, Limited, On account of the
lack of time on my part, I have delayed
sending you this communication. The.
cement company has no real estate for
sale aud depends entirely upon the saje
of its bonds and stock for its capital to
build the plant. The annual report of
the company which has recently been
circulated in your vicinity, stated distinct
ly the reason for the unavoidable delay,
that has occured in the completion of
our works. Our directors have coneid-
ered it best to go slow and play safe, especially as we now haye a stringency iti
the money market.
The report that the securities have
been sold for fifty per cent of their face
value is entirely untrue and not a dollar's
worth has been sold for less than par. ■ If
there is any parties in or around Princeton who have been offering these securities for 50 or 75 cents on the dollar we
shall be pleased to find parties who will
purchase all that they have to offer.
As a requisite to secure a posilion in
our company, no one has been asked to
buy any real estate either in East Princeton or the Old town, by myself or any of
the officers of the company. In order
that our employees can give us their best
services we will naturaily want them to
live as near our factory as possible, as
their efficiency would be greatly lessened if they had to walk several miles
every day to and from their employment.
Proper provisions will no doubt be made
for the proper housing of our employees
for their best comforts and convenience.
Regarding certain mis statements that
were made concerning the sale of East
Jprinceton lots and contigious industrial
[enterprises of the Similkameen country,
I think the recent article which appeared
iu your paper, under the signature of Mr.
F. C. Porter, manager of the Peace River Realty Co. will be sufficient to cover
anything in connection with the company
There is no reason why any mis-statements should be made concerning the
number of our employees as it is well
known how many we will actually em
ploy on the starting of the plant, and
the number that will eventually be employed.
I will say that the policy of the Cement Company at all times will be to
help boost and bnild up your beautiful
and thriving region. We shall be glad
to take a hand with yonr board of trade
or any other civil bcidy to secure for Princeton and vicinity all the business p s.i-
ble and to help build up your community
financially, morally and intellectually.
Yours truly
C. R. Briggs,
Sec'y Treas.

LEADVILLE CHUNKS.
From Our Own Correspondent.
Leadville.   March  28.—I   hope   these
chunks will not be as heavy as the ore
here nor so unpalatable as to cause mental indigestion.
J. C. Edwards has three men at work
making air connection to their adit. The
freighters failed to get the pipe and furnace through to the mine, which were
intended for that purpose, but failed

two months before they reach the point
where they expect the lode to be found.
I hear that the government is going
to use $10,000 making a wagon road this

extending the adit from 195 ft. 3 ins., to
300 ft. There are four feet of milling or
concentrating galena ore in the face of
the adit.
About ten feet of snow at the cabin
and over seven feet on the average.
On my way from the Indiana I called
at Treasuse mountain cabin and reported
Mr. Rabbitt's condition, who has been
sick for three weeks. Contractor Seaman and Mr. Rice will pack the sick
man to the Indiana.

CHIROPRACTIC-NE UROPATHY
In Progress.
In the last few years the spirit of pro
gress has been greatly manifest. Great
strides have been made in all lines. A
few years ago electricity was unknown,
today we consider it indispensable.
For the past fifteen years Chiropractic-
Neuropathy has beeu forging ahead.
Today it is known very favorably to a
limited number of people. The next
decade will show its universal adoption
as the method pre-eminent for relieving
and permanently curing the ailments of
mankind.
The C -N. Theory
is that the causes of diseases are lesions
(displacements) of the bony framework,
but more especially that of the spinal
column, causing the contraction of muscles, which in turn draw and impinge
nerves, creating too much or not enough
action disease.
The Results of Displaced Vertebrae.
The nerves are pressed against and the
functional energy is either interrupted
or impaired, All muscles are made to
contract by the subluxation of bones, the
displacement is made greater from tbe
constant contraction of muscles; the
greater the length of time the subluxation exists the greater the  displacement.
Ninety per ceut, of all disease may be
traced to subluxated vertebrae.
Be With Us.
Join  the  ranks   of   the.  Chiropractic-
Neuropaths.     Become  a  benefactor    of
humanity. The field is large; tbe amount
of good you can do is unlimited.

Reasons for Delay.
The completion of our  plant during
the past year has not  been  acomplished
for several reasons;   "First,"   We were
not\able to secure a satisfactory agreement with the Great Northern Railway
Company,  covering the   operation and
maintenance of Ihe Spur recently' completed to our works until  we had made
an appeal to the Board of Railway  Com
missioners ;   "Second." the usual tightness of the money market has   made it
exceedingly   difficult   for many of our
subscribers   to   meet   their     payments
promptly as agreed  upon.   It  was not
until the middle  of June   that a satisfactory agreement with the Great Northern Railway Company was signed up and
the laying ofthe track to our works  was
not   completed   by  the    Railway   Company, until the middle of August.   With
these handicaps  in   view,  the. Directors
decided to proceed with  the completion
of the buildings and  the  installment of
the machinery only as fast as  the  neces
sary funds could be obtained.    We  have
proceeded    with    the    utmost    caution,
keeping the expenses  down  to  a  minimum,  paying for all   materials as  pur
chased and fulfilling our contract   obligations for machinery as we  had  agreed
upon.   I wish to call your special  attention to the fact that the Company has  no
other  revenue  than   payments   received
from the sale of our Securities,  consequently delinquent subscribers have been
repeatedly urged  to  pay  up  as  fast  as
possible in order that the  final  complet
ion of our works might not be  unnecessarily delayed.    The work in  connection
with the collection of funds has been   no
small matter, when it is   considered   that
we now have about   275  shareholders  in
the Company.   When unpaid   balances
on subscriptions are fully met, we should
have ample funds to fully .quip our plant'
and furnish sufficient working capital.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
If a contribution be made toward
the British navy one of the conditions should be the removal of the
unfair and discriminative embargo
on Canadian cattle going to Britain.
Even handed justice is all that is
asked. For years there has been
no case of contagious disease among
Canadian cattle yet they are under
the ban of such stringent regulations in the old country that our
export trade in beef cattle suffers
heavy loss. Now, Mr. Borden,
dicker a little with J.B. for the aid
you purpose giving and remove the
scandalous embargo. .Jsp
The warring suffragettes forget
their sex in their eagerness to gain
votes for women. They had better
make haste slowly and cut out the
sensational pranks that have gained
them nauseous notoriety. While
the cause of woman suffrage is
most worthy and deserving it will
not help the cause to resort to needless acts of violence and lawbreak-
ing. On the basis of equal rights
and equality of creation woman can
no longer be relegated to the positions of a menial and slavish obeisance to those who would be her
lord and master. Liberty, not
chains, are her. birthright. It is
the barbarous and inhuman in men
which treat them as being inferior
and incapable of regulating the
evils of their own sex. Premier
McBride could win no more enduring monument than to prociaim
votes ^or women and that emancipation which will result in contentment and progress. Remember,
the world moves.
Hon. Winston Churchill admits
that the navy building race is a
senseless craze and blunder and in
the same breath asks for more money
to perpetuate this wicked folly. If
he had been in earnest in his professed anxiety tor peace he would
have reduced the building program
by at least one battleship. But he
made an unstatesmanlike proposal
to Germany and the other powers
to 'take a holiday' and the result is
the press of Europe and the Similkameen are poking fun at him. As
a high minded and courageous
statesman  should   do,   why did he
The birth of a newspaper always
is a matter  of interest  to brethren
of the quill  who extend greetings
to the progenitors and a hearty welcome to the infant.    The B.C. Property Gazette, of Mission City,B.C.,
is  the  latest exchange  on our list
and its appearance   indicates that it!
will cater to the news affecting real
estate  and  business generally.    It!
apparently eschews politics and has;
no editorial  department.    As Mis-j
sion City   is a town   of about 1500
population and already has  a good
newspaper, the Record, it is difficult
to understand the  call, for another.
Success to the Gazette.
Law is good when properly enforced and carried out, otherwise it
is a fai_e. The people elect legislators or lawmakers who exercise
their individual and collective wisdom in framing laws. When these
laws are administered impartially,
without prejudice, fear or favor, a
wholesome effect is noticed in the
social life of the country. If the
judiciary and the administrative
officials perform their duties fairly
no citizen can object and the community is benefited. Every law-
abiding person will rejoice to see
the laws enforced, the offenders
and law-defying elements in any
community alone feel them irksome
and annoying.
It is an unfavorable reflection on
the capability of Canadians to settle their appeal lawsuits outside of
the country. It is as if they said,
we cannot trust our own supreme
court, the privy council of England
is our last and only hope of justice.
Leaving out the questions of convenience and expense in carrying a
case of appeal before the privy
council it is enough to condemn the
practise if for no other reason than
that of. national dignity. It will
not encourage a sentiment of self
respect and manly independence in
the rising generation when they
learn that although we are able to
make our own laws we are scarcely
competent to interpret them in a
court of finality. Surely, out of
seven millions of people qualified
judges may be found to constitute a
court of last appeal, instead of
which the learned gentlemen ot the
privy council now eke out justice,
although they may have no intimate knowledge of the people or
the country. The court of last resort should be free from any charge
of fogey ism or senility, yet it is almost certain that future generations
of Canadians will smile broadly at
the idea of taking legal cases to
the old country for decision. The
necessity for remedy is apparent.

Cement in Big Demand.
It is gratifying to know that the Railway Spur is completed and in operation,
that all buildings are finishe<L-the foundations for machinery laid aud nearly
four-fifths of the machinery installed
It is fully expected by the first of April
that the balance ofthe machinery will all
be in position and the plant will be in
full operation not later than May first.
This will give us a splendid chauce to
get our share of the spring trade, and
from present prospects we should be .able
to sell every barrel of Cement that can be
turned out by the plant. The Customs
report for 1912 shows th_t British Columbia imported about 400,000 barrels of Cement during June, July, August, Septem
ber and October. The demand for Ce
ment will be much larger during 1913,
than it was during 1912, and as the initial output of our plant will be considerably less than 200,000 barrels we should
have no trouble in placing the entire output in this Province. I am sure that
with the hearty co-operation and support
of our numerous Shareholders, we should
have an unlimited field for the sale of
our product, and at remunerative  prices.
During the past year the Secretary
and Treasurer Mr. C R. Briggs, has again
had entire charge ofthe Office and general affairs of the Company, under the
direction and approval of the Executive
Officers. Mr. W. J. Budd has had charge
of the construction work at the plant,
according to previous contract. The Directors of the Coinpauy have given considerable of their valuable time to the
affairs of the Company aud that without
remuneration. I would strongly advise
as far as possible that all Shareholders
visit our works aud see for themselves
what has been accomplished.
I would further point out to you that a
careful atudy of the Treasurer's repor
will show, I think, conservative and
steady growth of the Company's affai.s
over last year's statement I am confident
that at the close af the coming year, that
a ver}' successful business will be shown
by the.Company.

BEAVER TRAPPING.
Chief Game Warden A. Bryan-Williams has reported to the Attorney-General's Department that, owing to the season for beaver being open last year and
the number of pelts placed on the market large, it was deemed advisable to
declare another close season until November 15 next.   An exception was, however, made in  favor  of the Indians on
tbe  Stikine,   Liard   and  Peac_   rivers.
While it was as well to be on the safe side
it   appears that the number of beaver
trapped last  season   was   by no means
larger    than     the     supply warranted.
Numerous   complaints  have   been   received of damage   done   by   beaver   to
Tarm   lands.     In   some     cases,    these
have   been   found   upon   investigation
to have been simply excuses   to   those
who wish to trap, but in a   majority of
instances, the   complaints   were   found
well   founded,   and   trapping   permits
accordingly issued, the invariable   conditions being that one-third of the price
realized- from   the   sale   of   the   pelts
should go to the  government.   As   the
provincial      stock   of   beaver   is   now
larger than   necessary,   it   is   intended
that trapping shall   be   again   allowed
when the present   order-m-council   expires on November 15 next.

GOATS IN DEMAMp^
During the past few months the Live
Stock Branch of the Dominion Depart
ment of Agriculture has been in receipt
of numerous inquiries as to where it
might be possible to purchase either
Angora or Milch goats. It would appear
that in mauy parts of the Dominion the
demand for these useful and profitab'e
animals is rapidly developing and that
those who at present have any surplus
stock can find a ready sale for them if a
channel of communication between
supply and demand is established. Accordingly, as a means of starting a convenient Directory of Canadian Breeders
of Angora Goats and Milch Goats, the
Live Stock Commissioner will be pleased
to receive from such breeders information regarding their respective flocks
covering the following points:
1.—Kind and number of goats kept.
2.—Usual number for sale  each  year.
3.—Approximately the prices asked.
If possible a brief statement regarding
expenses found necessary and the returns
which may be expected by one engaging
in raising this class of stock.
Communications supplying the above
information should be addressed to the
Live Stock Commissiouer, Ottawa, Ont.
Such letters do not require postage.
