THE COPPER STOCKS  Have  Declined Many Millions  EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY  Now Awaiting the Man Who Wants  to Make Sure Money in  Shrunk Stocks'  Metals, particulary copper, and  metal stocks continue on the toboggan slide.  Copper is down below 15 and  Boundary coppers are a night-  mare-  Granbv is quoted at $80 asked  and $70 bid, B.C."Copper at $uS0  asked and $5.75 bid, and Dominion Copper at $3.75 asked and  $2.50 bid. There ought to be big  money in any of these stocks for  the man willing to await the inevitable re-adjustment.  Walker's Copper letter in the  Boston Commercial of 2Sth ult.,  has the following on copper  stocks :���  The following' figures should be a  lesson to every shrewd investor who  has an .ambition to make money in  stocks. At the high prices of 1901.  when copper was selling- at 17 cents,  the capital stocks of 24coppercompanies were selling- on tue -Boston Stock  Exchange for $506,000,000. Trade con  ditions weakened; the corner collapsed  and copper declined to 10^4 cents. As  a result these same.24 coppers sold  down to a basis of 5116,000,000 a shrinkage of $340,000,000. Then conditions  began to mend, and before stories of a  continuing accumalation of copper had  ceased to be heard, the price of the  metal started on its way toward 26  cents per pound. At the highest prices  of the present year these'same 24 coppers s'old for 5571,000,000, a gain of  5405,000,000. At recent prices, however,  they" had decli'nedlagairi to$271,000,000,  a shrinkage of 5300,000000.  It must be remembered that since 1901  these companies have distributed to  stockholders more than 5100,000.000,  cachaic of xne-nunib"er"Being"clividend  payers. Even those who bought all  of the stocks in the group at their  highest prices in 1901, therefore, have  received dividends and have had one  opportunity to sell at a net profit.  My point is that copper share prices  are again at practically low tide. There  has been a shrinkage of S300,000,0()0 in  24 coppers, and more than S500,000,000  in the whole list. From somewhere  aroundthislevelof prices a newadvance  is sure to start pretty soon, and within  two to four years the Boston coppers  are practically certain to appreciate  half a billion dollars. Here is au opportunity to make a lot of money. The  investors who buy these coppers and  hold them for the next big boom will  get a share of these hundreds of millions  of dollars. Those who buy and pay  for a few of the best stocks have only  to wait for their reward. They will  meanwhile get a good dividend return  "on their investment-more than theycali  in almost any other kind of security.  THE I.O.O.F.  At the regular weekly meeting  of. the Odd Fellows Tuesday evening a very interesting and instructive address was given by Past-  Grand J. A. Young of Hamilton,  Ont. He pointed but the great  benefits derived from being an Odd  Fellow, au order, which he stated  had a larger membership than the  oldest society in the world. He  concluded his address by congratulating the officers of Boundary  Valley Lodge on the excellence  of their degree work.  During the evening' 10 candidate received the third degree.  Fifteen candidates for initiation  are slated to appear next Tuesday  PAY ORE.  The Jewel at Long Lake is with  the steady development being  carried on, confirming the predictions of those who have ever  claimed that it was a big mine.  Not long since an up-rise of, 100  feet was made on ore the entire  distance without once breaking  either wall, the lead being four  feet wide. Twelve men are at  work on the property.  Work continues on the Diamond  with   very   satisfactory   results.  The rock now being broken leads  to the belief that the celebrated  Providence lead is now at hand.  The shaft is now-down 113 feet  and cross-cutting will begin Sunday.  -���-**. ������ ���   ��� ,  It is expected that at the approaching meeting-of the Providence Co. arrangements will be  completed fo. putting on modern  and complete machinery equipment.  A deal is being quietly discussed  for some Wallace Mountain properties at Beaverdell. Individuals  who have long held claims here  do not feel like sacrificing now  that the transportation outlook  is hopeful.  ' Work is likely to begin on the  Standard Fraction soon.

BORDEN'S VISIT  To the Boundary Last Monday Evening,  WAS OCCASION FOR RALLY  Nominally by the Conservatives. But  Attended by All Classes, Grit.  Tory and Socialists  LIBERAL CONVENTION  A Great Success.  The convention of the Liberal  party of the Province in Vancouver was called to order at 3 o'clock  Tuesday last by Mr. Fred Peters,  K.C.  About three hundred delegates  representing every riding in - the  Province but Columbia were present at the opening. R. G. Mc-  Pherson, M.P., made an address  of welcome.  There having been no convention of the party since 1902 the  old association was declared lapsed and a new one was formed  with ��� affiliated district and local  branches.  Hon. W. Templeman.and J. A.  Macdonald, M.P.P. were made,  ex-officio members of all committees, of which the,chairman named several.  A constitution_yvas adopted for  theTenfraTbody, and terms for  those for the district and local  bodies subject to confirmation by  the bodies concerned.  On Wednesday, the second day,  the convention went on record  wiih strong resolutions on the  questions of Oriental immigration  opening of coalreserves.equitable  taxation and careful inspection of  all labor employing industries.  Harmony and enthusiasm characterized all the sessions of the  convention.  CITY COUNCIL  At the meeting of the City  Council held on Wednesday even-  ing last it was decided to put in  an additional hydrant in Anaconda, at the rear of the foundry.  J. A. McDonald, of Rossland,  was retained as attorney in the  suit being brought by Portmann  Bros, in connection with damages  arising fom City's appropriation  of the water of Providence Creek.  Aid. Sutherland reported that  the horse he had inspected at  Keremeos with a view of purchace  for city use, was not suitable.  Iu regard to Band appropriation  it was decided to allow $6 for each  street concert given, but not more  than $6 be paid for anyone week.  The following accounts were  ordered paid:  Russell-Law-Caulfield Co., 15.45  F. C. Buckless, - - 13.15  Jas. McCreath -       -       1.50  B.C.

The postage on letters to Great Britain, Egypt and all other" parts ef the  British Empire except Australia and  Rhodesia which has eilherto been 2cts.  per y'z ounce or fraction thereof, will  be 2cts. per ounce or fraction thereof.  Australia and Rhodesia 2cts. per ��<  ounce. Postage on letters to all Postal  Union Countries will be 5cts. for the  first ounce and 3cts. foreach subsequent  ounce or fraction thereof. United  States and Mexico 2cts. per ounce as  hitherto.  It is fitting that when a public  man like Mr. R. L. Borden, leader of'a great party, even if a disheartened one, visits a remote  district like the Boundary, his  presence should receive a measure  of consideration.  We regret that the gentleman  could not have found it convenient to visit the metropolis of the  Boundary,butin asmuch as Grand  Forks was the home town of the  Conservative Candidate in the  last election, aud the first town to  be reached in the Boundary, it  perhaps was the correct thing to  make his one night stand at that  place. Through the thoughtful  consideration of Mr: E. G. Warren however our people were given an  opportunity to   go over to  Grand Forks by special train and  return after the meeting.  About 100 of our citizens took  advantage of the cheap rate, and  Conservatives, Liberals and Socialists went over.  The rather cramped quarters of  the Grand Forks' meeting place  were filled by an audience who  gave Mr.Borden and his associate  Mr. Bergeron a- very careful hearing, and if the dignified utterances  of leader Borden failed to arouse  enthusiasm, the amusing- oratory  of his lieutenant certainlysucceed-  ed in developing lots of laughter  and good humor. Mr. Borden is  a tall,dignified gentleman in middle life. He is in ho sense an  orator, nor even an amusement  maker, but he has an air of sincerity which makeshis utterances,  without doubt believed by himself, appear profound and worthy  of attention if not of acceptance.  His presence is charming, his language select aud safe, and doubtless aware that the scavenger  work will be done by him who  succeeds him, he confines'himself  to clean, healthy discussion of  public questions.  -His manner and methods are  pleasing to thoughtful people,  even if there- is -weakness-in^his-  demonstration of his own, and  criticism of his opponent's doctrines.  At Monday ^evening's meeting  he consumed an hour in which he  outlined his views of government  ownership of railways, telegraph  and telephone lines, and a criticism of the failure of Liberal administration.  Iu   discussing  the  presence of  corrupt practices in elections and  and civil service administration  which he charged against Sir  Wilfrid, and in his plea for clean  men and clean government and  clean methods it was noticed that  he abstained from mention of  either Mr. Foster or Mr. Fowler-;  In this he showed his shrewdness  although many present who one  time believed in Mr. Foster would  have been pleased to have had a  word of excuse at least, if not  defence of the orator of his party  who in " moments of weakness"  does unhappy things.  Should Mr. Borden ever by any  circumstance of chance, become  Prime Minister of Canada, he will  certainly command the respect of  its people if he should prove true  to his ideals of public morals as  set forth last Monday evening.  In Mr. Bergeron. Mr. Borden  has chosen well. Tie is a ready  speaker, well equipped by twenty-  nine year's of parliamentary experience to discuss public matters,"  and with a slightly French accent  which   only   adds     flavor     and  piquancy to his witty and pointed  criticisms. His speech was in  marked contrast to that of Mr.  Borden. Warmth instead of  frigidity, amusement instead of  education, comedy instead of  tragedy. He took as his text a  tew words from a late is?ue of the  Grand Forks Sun, and his hour  and a half of comments thereon  must have been as amusing to  1 grits as to tories for it certainly  was'igh-class amusement.  Unfettered by any laws of leadership form,unpledged sometimes  to the truth and immune from  any reply to follow he sometimes  grew reckless in his funv and  though unadorned by cap and  bells knew well the part he played.  Liberal speakers who heard Mr.  Bergeron's wanton criticisms  ought to be at no lack for material for scathing reply.  We frankly congratulate the  Conservatives on the impression  their leader made, but ��� we could  not help contrasting the leaders  of the two great parties measured  as intellectual forces.  We must not omit mentioning  that Mr. Ernest Miller ably presided and that Mr. Martin Burrill  made a ver)' brief but acceptable  introductory speech.

The great wheat fields of the  Northwest form a siug-le resouree.  The fish and timber and mines  and fruit and climate of British  Columbia form a diversity unequalled, singly or collectively.  British Columbia has just started on its great career. Inquiry  into its multipled wealth is coming from every quarter. It courts  the closest investigation from  those seeking to make homes,  where a genial climate goes with  a golden opportunity.  The scorching suns of summer  and the blizzard blasts of winter  are driving thousands from the  great prairies of the west, thousands seeking homes amid better  conditions, with greater opportunities. They are headed westward into the coast country whose  greatest boast is an equable climate, and into the Similkameen  and Okanagan and Boundary  where fruit raising is becoming a  surpise to the wbrld'and a genteel  means of living to the owner of  ten acres.,  ?: We predict that.in five years the  population between Grand Fork's  and -Priceton will be five times  what it is today. Fine, soil,'fine  water, fine climate form a strong  argument with the homeseeker.  The apple and pear and plum  "are sought for every where and he  who would have a sure crop for a  sure market should seek the valleys of the Kettle, and the West  Fork, and Okanagan and the Similkameen. Greenwood can never  hope to be the fruit ceuetr Grand  Forks and Midway and Rock  Creek and a dozen points west are  sure to become, but that does not  prevent our telling the truth about  the glorious chances west of us  for the fruit grower.  Canada is the greatest of the  Empire's Colonies; British Columbia ,is the greatest in resouree of  the   provinces   of   Can adia^ t hc  Boundary is the greatest mineral-  producing section of British Columbia; Greenwood is the best  town and the metropolis of the  Boundary, '*  LOOK  AFTER   YOUR   OWN.  Several people anxious about their  mineral claims in the railway belt and  fearful of tlie C. P. R.'s designs on the  timber thereon thought it would be  well to have a public meeting last Sat  urday and take steps to 'inquire into  the status of the question. The meeting was called and very few attended.  However a committee was named to interview Premier McBride List Monday  with a view of asking the government  to make a test case and have the courts  decide. The committee went trj the  Forks but the Premier was not then::  and no nothing was done.  And now it is up to the individual  claim holder to work out his own case  because it was evident from the meeting thai the people were nut interested.  WASTE DUMP  GOING 10 JAPAN.  Il>n.

Mr. Borden and Sir Charles  Hibbert, or Mr. Borden and Mr.  Foster would not long- mix unless  Mr. Borden were content to dis-  cend or others were ambitious to  rise iu the scale of public morals.  Mr. Borden has reason to be  proud of the Boundary's reception  and the country has no cause of  complaint at the tenets of his belief, when in closing be declared  that: -"There are three essentials  of democratic government:���The  honest appropriation and expenditure of public money, decent  election of men for public office;  purity in elections.  We publish elsewhere in this  issue the annual report of the  Bank of British North America.  This old reliable institution appears to be doing a healthy business as its profit and loss account and dividend sheet show.  The opening of several new  branches in Canada show that  the Bank proposes to be a  growing factor in the commercial and financial life of Canada.  Improvements and greater enterprise locally moreover attest to the  fact that our own section is not  being overlooked by this one of  the financial, giants of the country,  whose management  always  conservative still endeavors to  advance the best interests of its  customers.  The following from a recent  sermon by Rev. W. R. Young, of  St. James Methodist Church,  Montreal, sounds sublime and  simple :���  "We are willing to trade, with  the Japanese, but we are afraid  to meet them on the plane of a  common brotherhood. Yet God's  thoughts are not our thoughts.  I may be wrong, but I believe  that Canada, with her sanctified  homes, her bible, her spirit of  Christianity, will prove to be God's  agent for bringing Japan to the  kingdom of Christ, and that the  day is coming when Japanese,  Chiuamen and Canadians will  bow down at the same shrine and  join in the same hymn of praise  in mutual worship of the same  God."  But we rise to express an equally simple thought, this, if 100  Japs, Chinese and Hindus marched into the gentleman's church  next Sunday would they be ushered up to the front ?

FRIDAY   OCTOin'R ���!. 19J7  THE CONSERVATIVE  LEADER  We confess to a feeling of   dis  CANADIAN PATRIOTISM  appointment in the Conservative  leader who visited the district  this week. We were looking for  some of the magnetism of Sir  John A. Maedouuld, or the splendid orator- of Sir John Thompson  but we were disappointed. We  are glad to admit that the gentle-  man in question carries in his face  his bearing and his utterances the  distinguishing marks of a man of  tone, sincerity and integrity.  He has more of the air and  stamp of a jurist than a politician or .statesman, more of the doctrinaire th.-wi the leader.  He looks the man of conviction  he acts the part of him who would  raise his ccuutry to lofty ideals.  But a-parliament of men of Mr.  Borden's stamp, no matter how  able aud how lofty, would be an  aggregation of unpliable material  that would waste its time in the  dreams of a  yet-to-be-discovered  Utopiaucommonwealth. YYedo not  <*  conceive that in him dwell theele-  ments that are cohesive in a great  party and friction would soon appear between him and other positive force:, i'j a cabinet. But the  Coi:scrva'.ive party have much  m >re to be proud <>f in its leader,  than he would have in his lieutenants and we can imagine au  earl j shattering of his ideals if in  It is well to try to inspire patriotism in the minds of a people  Patriotism is something higher  than mere loyalty. It is in measure an idealistic thing but one  that makes nations great. A  people may be loyal in a sense  and yet not very patriotic.  By loyalty we take to mean  fidelity to a country's laws and  sovereignr=by"patriotisttHove^for  a country and desire for its advancement. Perhaps no country  in the world can boast greater  loyalty than Canada, and yet the  country is not burning with pat-  i riotism. To teach patriotism  many sources are appealed to.  Under the flag that floats above  the school house,the school children sing the "Maple Leaf Forever." From the platform and  the pulpit, orator aud preacher  launch their lofty aud patriotic  thoughts with the view of inspiring a healthy public sentiment.  The press holds forth to the people its lofty ideals, and" parliaments ring with the thunders of  those who teach "that a country's  a thing men should die for at  need."  But tlie Canadian capitalist  forgets the song of the maple leaf,  forgets the teachings of press and  platform. He allows Canadian  resource to remain undeveloped  1 often while he diverts his capital  to the exploitation of foreign  fields. Cuba, Mexico, Brazil look  more inviting to him than Canada.  Street railways in Minneapolis look safer than the mountains of British Columbia.  And   so while our banks hang  up their safety  stocking in Wall  Everyday    appears   to    make  plainer the hold that Sir Wilfrid  aud his party have on,the  affections of the Canadian people.  'Down in St.  John��when Mr.  Pugsley   was   first named  as a  possible minister the  choice  was  derided   and   the   Conservatives  professed to glory in- the oppor-  iunity that   awaited them.    Mr.  Fowler thundered his philippics  and   Mr.  Foster   declared   with  seeming innocence of its sarcasm,  that-men of   integrity  and lofty  ideals must displace  the mental  andtmoral invalids of the liberals  party. - '   -..'  Mr. Pugsley was declared to be  renegade and opportunist and  one who had falsely dealt with  Mr. Emmerson.  St. John must be redeemed  sounded from the press and platform. The whilom constituency  of the great conservative orator  TTOsTbTkepTTi n" "tHe^l ih^wherF  the late lamented Dr. Stockton  had brought it.  But no candidate arose to dispute the claim of Dr.- Pugsley.  In the judgment of themselves the  constituency abounded in fitter  men to represent it in the federal  Parliament.
