The first annual'meeting of the company was held in this city on October  1st, when the manager's, secretary-  treasurer's and auditor's reports were  received and officers elected for the  current year. The board of'directors'  is the same as last year, with two  names added. Mark F. Madden of  Chicago was re-elected president;  Dunrun F. Mcintosh, vice-president  and manager; W. M. Law, secretary-  treasurer, and .the other directors are  J. J. Caulfield, and J, A. ;��� Russell',  Greetfwood; IL J.- Fitzgerald < aud  Franklin Rudolph,^ Chicago; J'.' H.  Peet," Spokane,' and ,W. - G, Macey,  Phoenix.  The reports of the various officeis  show that the mine is rich and that it  has been intelligently and economically  handled. W. E. Hodges, chartered  accountant, who audited the books,  found everything correct. The  profit and loss account shows that  S43.3 tons of ore were mined during  the year, producing net $54,315.24, or  $100 to the tori, this after deducting  freight and smelting charges amounting in the case of first grade ore to '$12  per ton, and ih! second grade to $5.75  per tori. ,      * .  .The debit side shows that $20,917.99  was paid for direct mining, bran average or $38.50 per tori, and $2204.41 * for  -*_ldjr��cL jjhargesj^r^an^average^-.of.  $4.05 per ton, making a total cost of  $42.55,   which   leaves   n   net  profit of  The Financial Statement Shows Company Free From Debt.  Nontreal, October 8���At the annual  meeting of the shareholders of the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting  arid Power Co., Ltd., held at the company's office, Canada Life building, in  this city, the old board^of directors was  re-elected, as follows: S. H. C, Miner,  Jay P. Graves, John Stanton, Wm. H.  Nicholls," A. C. Flumerfelt, A. L. White,  W. A. Robinson, Jacob Langelolh, J.  H. McKecknie, Geo. Martin Luther,  Fayette Brown and C. S. Houghion.  When the financial statement was  presented it showed the company to be  free from debt with the exception of  the ordinary monthly bills. The production for the year ending June 30,  1903, amounted to, 12,551,000 pounds of  fine copper,- 277,000 ounces of silver,  and 35,121 ounces' of gold, for which  was received the sum of $2,232,741,  while the rents and real estate sales  brought in $38,211, making a total of  $2,371,222.  - -Working expense at the mine and  smelter. $1,136,830; foreign ore purchased, $72,954; foreign material purchased, $766,004; making a total ot  $1,975,789. , The net profit is, therefore,  $295,463, which together with the surplus for the preceding year briags up  the total to $693,535.  During the year Inhere was expended  on new construction at the mines and  smelter the sum of $207,000. ,  f  X  i  X  X  X  y  r  ?  ���  t  t  t  i  ~;m.;<��;..;.,<,;..;..>.;.*.:.��;<>,2m^^w>��^^  A Purse of Gold  J.

On Saturday  night Mr. Mathot's friends presented  him with a purse of geld, and many  references were made to his worth as  an obliging official and good citizen.  Mr. Mathot feelingly acknowledged  the substantial gift and the many kind  references "to himself. _ He liked_Grecn-  - -  ��� . .  wood and her people'and. .regretted  leaving here.

BOUNDARY ORE EXHIBIT  $57.45. j Included in;the;indirect-icost is  $821.43 paid to the provincial exchequer  for taxes under the two. per, cent tax.  The year's pay roll'.amounted to  $16,770.61, and about $2000 was paid to  local people for hauling ore and assaying and sampling.  Duncan Mcintosh, under whose  management the mine was developed  until, today, it is a regular dividend  payer, submits a report in which he  tells about the development of the  mine.   He says in part :  *  "The present management dates  from the 9th of October, ,1902, when  the present owners then took o.-.-er the  Providence mine.  .':���" At that time there was a  shaft 50  feet deep known as,, the  No.  1  shaft,  also a shaft 64 teet deep known as  the  No. 2 shaft.   A tunnel was  started  to  connect   with   the   No. 1 shaft.   The  management   decided  to   work   from  shaft No. 1 and to connect  shaft No. 1  with tunnel, as there was considerable  stoping ground ��� over', the tunnel and  near the shaft.   On  December 1  they  ���*��� j started to sink shaft No. 1  deeper and  about January 15 reached  a depth "of  120 feet, when it. was  decided  to-drift  on the vein.   About April 20 It was decided   to   continue   the shaft 50 feet  deeper,   which   was   completed, about  June 1st, and a sump was sunk 10 feet,  making   1P0   i'eet   of shaft.    Drifting  was   continued   intermittently on the  No. 2 or 120 foot level, north,  until   at  the present time it is in 253 feet-on the  vein.    Drifted south 77 feet on the vein;  there was found  three  pay chutes of  ore; the first chute 115   feet   north   of  shaft and continuing 77 feet south  of  shaft;   making   192   feet  of  pay ore.  Then going north encountered 16 feet  of ore that did not contain pay  values;  then ore chute of  27  feet  containing  exceedingly rich ore; thence 40 feet of  'Twas Good.  The Thanksgiving concert in the  Methodist church under the auspices  of the Boys' Literary Society was attended by a large crowd.

The varied mineral resources of the  "Boundless Boundary"'.- as shown by  the numerous samples exhibited at the  Interstate fair have created a most  favorable impression among mining  Uien who have been interested visitors  to the mineral department,  Speaking about the Boundary exhibit G. W. Gaunce, secretary of the  Greenwood board of trade, who collected and has charge of the exhibit  here, said this morning:  "The impression has long prevailed  that the Boundary camps were, generally speaking, low grade copper-gold  producers. While this . is. true in a  large measure we have mines that are  exceptionally rich in both silver and  gold. Our samples were gathered purposely to show how varied are our ores.  Take for instance the 250-pound sample from the Elkhorn in Providence  camp. It shows pure, native silver.  The,Defiance has ore. running 11J*  ounces in gold, Som'e of the ore goes  over $1000 per ton. Our exhibit of copper specimens range in value from 2  and 3 per. cent copper from the: big  ore bodies to 60 and 7.0. per cent copper  in the rich small veins. The E. P. U.  is another exceptionally rich mine.  The ore shows in places much telUiride  and will run as high as $3000 -in go)d  per ton. It is similar in many respects  to the ores of Cripple;Creek. -Other  specimens show our stable ores taken  from the big low grade|"producers of  cpjpper-gold. .   ��� ���  ��� 'fin the immediate vicinity of Greenwood.City and in many cases adjoining  the corporate limits there have been  opened up during the past 12 months a  half dozen exceptionally rich producing  mines. Such mines as the Gold Finch,  E. P.iU., Gold Bug, Elkhorn; Providence and Defiance can he ranked ;with  the richest silver-gold mines .in tl.e  province.

"��*or sale by J. L.  White and A. F. Thomas Midway.  Boundary has practically rsached the  million ton mark. If the*'present tonnage is kept up the total shipments for  a year will reach the magnificent aggregate of one'million tons. The tonnage for 1903 will fall considerably  short of that;amount;;but the Fernie  strike and the shortage of coke following-restricted the output ;f or .the first-  half . of the year.

The. granting of this subsidy  should place the promoters in a  position tq begin the construction  of the road at an early date. It  will open up a rich mineral and  agriquitural section tributary to  Greenwood.

The recount took place on  Saturday and W. R. Ross was  declared elected by seven i of a  majority. It would be interesting to know who sent the despatch and how he could tell with  such wonderful accuracy ��� what  the sealed ballot boxes would give  Mr. Ross next day. The returning officer was Mr. Alexander,  Mr. Ross' law partner. The  ballot boxes were in his possession. It was rather frank  to announce the day previous the  majority which Mr., Ross' law  partner would give Mr. Ross, but  was it wise ?  There should be the closest investigation into the methods  adopted in connectipn with ,the  Fernie election. Conservatives:  and Liberals alike acknowledge  that there were more Arotes cast  for Mr. Smith than Mr*. Ross.  B,ut evidently in Fernie .the will  of the electors doesn't..... count.  Mr. Ross has the seat not because  he received a majority 'of votes  but because his law partner,, who  was appointed, returning officer,  says he is elected.    :, ���*.;.  ; An official recount by a judge  should be demanded forthwith,  and if under" the provincial elections' ;act','. the yptes of honest  electors who show,.their bona fide  intent .to vote for a certain candidate, are to be thrown out, then  the sooner the act is changed the  better.  Strange, things. are done in  British .* Columbia, but ; a new  precedent has been established in  Fernie. It is difficult to understand, the object in holding an  election at all, in that,* district.,  Much trouble and expense could  have been avoided if Mr. Alexander had declared his partner  elected in the first place without  waiting for an expression from  the electors.

A Good Suggestion  Editor of Boundary Creek Times: '    ���  ..(.<���  ... *.*��� '        ' ;  Sir:   Will   you   kindly    allow    tnei  through your paper to place before the!  farmers and fruit-growers a"schemej  for the advancement of our province.  The advantages of British  Columbia  as a place for settlers  are  very  Utile  known, and it  cannot  be  denied  thaf|  where -printed matter will often pass1  unheeded-the object itself will arrest  attention.  My proposition, therefore, is to collect samples of roots, fall and winter.!  fruit, etc., to be forwarded to Great  Britain. Here they could remain for a'  certain time on exhibition in the large  towns and afterwards be distributed,  amongst the hospitals and such like  institutions where they would no doubt  be highly appreciated. I would sug-  gejst printing! a list of the donors, together '-with ^particulars 'of the-fruit,  etc., which each contributes, so that  intending settlers might if they so desired .obtain information .about any  particular locality from a resident. By  this means it might also be possible to  open up fresh markets for Our fruit and  introduce capital.  'il would esteem it a favor if intendirig-  donors _of produce w���ould'*k?��dly .give  probable weight aud class of sample  when tjomimuripating with'pie in order  to facilitate axrangsiqefhts for icol-  lectkm.   5Tours jtruly,  W. <V. -Leonard, J.'p.

The  danger -has,\n no ypay abated; in ^act  it is becoming fmofce iminip*?iit, owing  to a greater tonnage of'oro and doke  bei^ig handled, necessitating more  ���SJwitchuig by the train crews.  A j��.iicb better location .for the  wagon road is down the east side of  Boundary cre-^k -from the postoffice as  far as'tkj? resijjfencfe ot Ji. 'McCurdy,  then acrdssjp^^tjjjja^ cxjeek to strike  the old wagop roaa "'aJt.'-or near Mc-  Pherson's sriwmill By -Taking this  route all danger from trains would be  done away and the smelter company  would have more room to put in other  sidings without any danger to the  traveling public. If the road commissioner would look over the suggested  route he will find it very easy of construction, and the putting in of a new  bridge will cost little, if' any, more  than the rehu'lding of the old one now  situated between the postoffice and the  smelter, and which is badly in need of  repair.

A boarding house was blown in this  week near the brewery to accommodate  the many toilers^at the Elkhorn arid  Providence mines.  Radium slumped this week from  35,000,000 a pound to $2,140,600.90* a  pound. Still prospectors in thelBound-  ary should not overlook this metal.  J. S. C.

"--Paitl'Babcocki a prominent" capitalist, died last week at his home in  Mount Clair, N. J., aged , 63 years.  Mr. Babcock had been a director in the  ���Standard Oil company until this year,  ant*, was formerly president of the  Liebig Manufacturing company, and  a director of the British Columbia  Copper company.  While working in a shaft at the Elkhorn last Saturday Jack Frost (not the  frost we see in the morning) met with  a painful accident, caused by a piece  of rock dropping and piercing his left  oar. Had Frost's head been two  inches farther over he would have been  instantly killed, but now he only suffers from a fractured lug.  A. M. Whiteside returned this week  from Victoria. He went there as  solicitor for che Standard Copper  company and William Price who were  defendants in action brought against  them by Massam, Laidlaw et. al. to set  aside a mortgage given by the Standard ]  company to Mr. Price and under which  the latter took possession. The action  has been running since January, 1902,  . but before it came to trial last week the  ���   plaintiffs withdrew the case.  ore that did not contain pay values;  thence to face of drift on pay ore, and  we are still continuing to drift on  pay ore.  On the 170 or No. 3 level a drift was  run ISO feet northerly and;, 52 feet  southerly on a -continuous:;bre chute,  with ore in face of both north and  south drifts. We have also done  prospecting work wherever it seemed  justifiable and hope to catch a parallel  lead which we have reason to believe  exists. "These/prospecting crosscuts  amount in all to ' 89 lfeet.*;'The total  amount of drifting and crosscutting  done on the three levels amount to  848, ��� feet, 418 feet of which we have  charged to profit and less and carried  430 feet as an asset, which we think is  right, as the ore in sight justifies it  and that work had to be done to take  in | the, ore out We . also raised 60 feet  from the; No,.:2 level to connect with  No. 2 shaft, following the ore in the  raise and drifting 12 ��� feet to connect  with shaft.  The cost of mining seems to be high,  yet it is not after taking into consideration that the ore bodies are small,  averaging 6 inches, and the rock exceedingly hard, the formation being  large and blocky makes it necessary  when .stripping the ore to take out  about three feet of waste ground.*  " I estimate there are;750 tons of ore  in sight, averaging $100. This estimate is over-conservative, as that has  been the expressed wish of the directorate that we keep everything on a  conservative basis.;'It will not take  any stretch of the imagination; to  double the amount.  "I would recommend that a dividend j)rj:wp_,be_p_assed_as... Jhere���,ought  to be a larger surplus carried, and  would also recommend that a trial of  machine drills be made, either electric  or air, for prospecting, sinking and  development. I do not think the work  can be done much cheaper than by  hand, but much more can be accomplished in the same time."  To furthur confirm the richness and  permanency of the Providence ore  veins the parallel lead which Mr.  Mcintosh refers to was encountered  this week. It is fully 12 inches wide  with eight inches of solid ore of even  a higher grade than that in the other  veins. This immeasurably.adds to the  value of the property, and as this lead  was cut at the 175 foot level it is certain  to go down.  Taking everything into consideration it is difficult to find a counterpart  of the story of the Providence in  mining history. It is one of a number  of high grade properties right at our  doors which for years remained doi-  mant, and there is a strong probability  that neighboring properties when sufficiently developed will equal the Providence as dividend payers. The Elkhorn, the E. P. U. and the Gold. Finch  will soon be added to Greenwood's list  of dividend paying high grade  mines.  Business Locals  Do you use BH-.i Ribbon Tea ?
