Then . the refreshments given  during the whole evening for 15c  a head proved a big attraction,  and was well'patronized and everybody seemed satisfied.  Predicts 18 Gent CJopper  Questioned as to the .effect of  the prospective rise in ';the. price  of copper on the electrical engineering-business, the president of  a corporation which is 4 considerable consumer of that metal said  to a representative' of ;the Wall  Street Summary:        >. ���  "We do not worry-.about the.  price of copper. Of course it is  going higher. In my opinion it  will be 18 cents a pound in Feb-  rttary. More than onerhalf: the  world's copper consumption is in  small factories and shops. The  little foundrys of our country and  Europe use twice as much copper,  in the aggregate, as is worked up  by the great engineering corporations. It is the little fellows  that pay the high prices. , My  corporation did not not buy any  copper to speak of when it got  above. 20 cents a pound. We  tjpught largely at 16 cents to 18  cents, and after that we depended  upon copper mines owned by dir-  [ectors in our corporation."  THOMAS DRUG & MUSIC GO.  The Store of Quality,'    ,"  .

Mining Operations at Portland  Canal.  The final payment of the $25.-  000 bond against the Lucky Seven  and Little Joe properties has been  paid by the directors of the Portland Canal Mining and Development company.   C.   H.: Dickie,  president,.and a large shareholder, is the authority for this statement.    Twelve claims situated on  Portland canal, the ore of which  is rich in gold, silver   and   lead,  now have been acquired and it is  proposed to commence active operations on a large scale   as soon  as   practicable   in   the   spring.  $80,000   will   be expended on an  aerial tramway, a   concentrator,  and a power plant.  " There are all so'ts of predictions regarding the future of copper, and they all seem to concur  in the idea that within 60 days  the price will be advanced to 15  cen ts or more. There are some  who place the prospective price  as high as 18 cents, which' price,  it is predicted, will be reached  in February, 1909.  There can be no doubt- that  during the great subsidence of  production the reserves were largely drawn on, and, as these have  been to a great extent exhausted,  the present supply comes from  the current reduction. With the  return of industrial activity the  demand for copper has been necessarily great, and the advance  to the present has been evidently  legitimate and natural. At the  same time the fear of a greater  advance has stimulated the large  consumers to lav in stocks on the  ruling prices to protect themselves against future possibilities;  There is a movement on foot  among the producers, manufacturers and dealers in copper and  brass to formulate some plan by  which the price may be held below 18 cents, which is considered  by those wbo are supposed to  know as a normal and legitimate  figure."  The average number of men  employed in connection with the  mines, mills, reduction- works,:t)f  Queensland during the year 1907  was 21,890, as against 23,047 for  the ^preceding year.  The white sands of New Mexico consist ot practically pure  gypsum.    .  Gold mining companies in New  Zealand paid dividends of $3,660,-  000 in 1907.  DENORO DOINGS,  MrsC E. M.

Harry Thomas, electrician,  Dinoro mines, left Thursday, via  V-V. & E. for Potter Valley,  California, where he has accepted  a more lucrative position. AH  his friends here wishe him all  success.  The Post office authorities have  been pleased to constitute the  Denoro P.O. into a money order  office. This will prove a great  boon for the residents as they  hud to walk 2% miles to Eholt to  -.o any money order business.  Assistant Postoffice Inspector  Murray, Vaucouver, was a visitor  in camp last Friday. He expressed himself as well pleased with  the way and the amount of business done in such a comparatively  small place.  Alex. C.

The owners of the large silver  mines at Tonopah are discussing  the question of closing down their  workings until the price of silver  rises.  The   continual   depression   of  the  silver   market will probably  force the mines to close,  accord-  ing to the operators, unless   the  tendency "of the white   metal   to"  hover around 45   cents   is   dissipated.

The glycerine employed in Dr. Pierce's  medicines greatly enhances the medicinal  properties which it extracts from native  medicinal rootys and holds in solution  much better than alcohol would. It also  possesses medicinal properties orbits own,  being a valuable .demulcent, nutritive,  antiseptic and antiferment. It adds  greatly to the efficacy of the Bl ack Cherry-  baric, Blopdroot, Golden Seal root, Stone  root and Queen's root, contained in  "Golden Medical Discovery "In subduing  chronic, or lingering coughs, broncbiaj,  throat and lung affections, for all of which  these agents are recommended by standard medical authorities.  In all cases whero ther^e is a wasting  away of flesh, loss of appetite, with weak  stomaCh, as in .the earjy stages of-con-  6umrftipn, there can be no doubt that'gly-  cerlno/acts as a valuable nutritive and  aids Mie Golden Seal root.

Neither ''sentimental rubbish"  nor "sympathetic piffle" will fittingly describe the Victoria Colonist's allusions to the endeavors  ot the Dominion Government  officials to remove the turbaned  Hindoo to Honduras.  Tbe Colonist's tender touches  of adyerse criticism are not intended to assist the desired removal of these people ; and like  the story of the phantom ships  crowded fore and aft with coolies  for our shores, are further evidence  ol hypocritical insincerity in the.  matter of Asiatic immigration,  and plainly shows to what extremes the Colonist will venture  in its search for demagogical  political capital.

The manager of the Vancouver  Province in an interview with  the Montreal Herald is credited  with the statement that "British  Columbia is not going to secede.''  This beats anything put up by  the slander-bund in the recent  elections and would make a very  appropriate finale to the campaign of hostility to the rest of  the Dominion carried on by a  section of tbe provincial press.

Travelling on the I C.R., Mr. Harry  Towers, St. Paul Street.St. JohnN.B  found a Zam-Buk, the 3reatBkin healer.  He waa suffering from badly chapped  hands at the time ��o applied the balm.  He say*:��� "Zam-Buk eased the pain  and smarting; healed the cracks, and  made my hands quiet smooth. Finding it aoo good, I kept a supply handy,  and have since proved it a really wonderful healer. It cures cuts, aores, or  burns equally well, and I would not like  now to be without a supply,"  Mr, Towers is only'one of the thousands who are glad they hear of Zam.  Buk. There is now skin disease it will  uot relieve and cure. Its fame is sprea  ding everywhere, aid it is now regarded  as nature's great "first aid" in work  shops, on the farm, or in the home. No  travellor should be without it. Every  home should have its box always ready  for use.   A little Zam-Buk rubbed reg-  u'arly on the hand and .face before retiring each night will keep the skin soft  and free f ���_ chaps, cold sores, or disease.  If you have a cut, a bruise, or some  irritating skin disease, which has defied all ordinary remedies, apply Zam-  Buk. It first cleanses a wound by killing off all harmful bateria. Then it  builds up new tissues cells by cell ���just  as a bricklayer lays row after*row of  bricks. Then it covers the wound with  new healthy skin, and the cure is effected! -  Zam Buk is also a cure for piles. It  gives speedy relief.and ends the throb-  bin^V burning pains.
