THE NEW NORDEN  The Dominion Copper Company  decided to take advantage of the  stagnant copper market to make  some longprbjectedituprovements  The large 750 ton furnace recently installed is now working  smoothly and satisfactorily.  The company has found that  there is economy in this furnace  and the methods employed, and  has decided that plans long contemplated that could not well be  entered upon when copper was  ruling high, may now be carried  out to advantage. To this end  the two small furnaces were recently blown out, and the work  tearing out the same has been begun. The plan is to substitute  iuctead a duplicate of its large  furnace,the largest in fact in Canada. Meantime work at the mines  will be somewhat curtailed, the  company's small storage capacity  making it desirable that only ore  sufficient to supply the ��� one furnace be received daily at the plant.  The quarries of the Rawhide and  Sunset may be safely relied on  for this supply, and meantime  workou-the company's other mines  will be practically suspended.  The work of regeneration will  be rushed so that by time the  metal market has somewhat  steadied and improved the plant  may be ready to reduce 1,500 to  1,600 tons daily and at a cost less  than before.  Manager Thomas expects to  have the improved and enlarged  plant - in operation by December  1st at'latest.  When the designs ,of Messrs.  Sater and Johns are completed  the new Norden will be one of  the most convenient and commodious hotels in tbe cityl A wide  door-way has been cut between  the former Norden and the Queen  Hotel and the two buildings  thrown into one.  A commodious s tairway has  been built giving access to the  forty-four rooms above. A large  office has been provided, and the  premises generally converted  into a modern hostelry.

So soon  as it niay be convenient for the  Bishop to attend the church will  be consecrated.  At St. Judels Church next Sunday Sunday School will open at  12 o'clock. There will -.be no  evening service. j  AT NELSON FAIR  PAY ORE  Last week the   Boundary sent  out 42,000 tons of ore.  ' Some very fine fruit from M id-  way and Rock Creek was to be  seen at the Nelson Fair'.' The  orchards of J. McMynn,-J. Mc-  Kenzie, Bubar Bros., B. Ingram,  W. H. Norris, Robert Kerr, and  B. Tippy where represented not  so much in the competitions as a  display of the beginning of things  in this district not hitherto exploited as a fruit producing one.  The display was hurriedly gotten together by W. O. Wright  merely to show that the Kettle  Valley Irrigation Company is  making no mistake in launching  its fruit lands enterprise in the  valley.  factors for the economical production of 40 to 50 % converter  matte in a single operation. The  same problems have had to be  faced by each smelter and, with  minor exceptions the divergencies  of practice seem to exist but reflect the ever-variant personal element.  *        *        *        * '      *  The Boundary field is predominantly characterized by  (1) Eonr.ous low-grade copper  deposits, yielding 23 to 28 lbs.  copper ard about $1.50 in gold  and silver.  (2) Neighboring water power  providing electric power to mines  and works for $33 per h. p.  per annum.  (3) Admirale railway facilites  and competing services.  (4) Coke, at about. S6.50per  ton, in irregular   supplies.  (5) Labor at $3.30 to $4 "per  shift.  (6) Three smelters operated by  companies with their own sources  of ore supply,  (7) Smelting commenced in  1000. Tonnage treated to'June,  1907, 5,000,000 tons..  (S) Present mining capacity,  6,500 tons per day.  :(9) Working costs, at mines and  works,$3 to 3.40.  (10) Men employed, 2,000 earning $200,000 per month in wages  (11) Capitalization of three  smelting companies, $22,500,000  in shares and $1,000,000 in bonds.  (12)' Largest producer, Granbv  Consolidated; dividends, ��� SI,620,-  Is That One Likely   to  Prove  AT PITTEMilCH'S VILLAGE  We quote at length from a  rather exhaustive arcficle which  appears in the Mining World from  the pen of Ralph W. Stokes.  "So enormous are thclow-grade  copper deposits' of the boundary  district, that the mines..may'be  said to be dependent on the  smelters just as, at Rossland, the  smelters are dependent on the  mines. But all have in the past  been at the mercy of the Crow's  Nest coal miners. Apart, from  furnaces is this outside influence,  the capacity of the chief limiting  factor in the industrial expansion  of the Boundary and on this account the metallurgical aspect of  the situation is of-the ..more absorbing interest and economic  importance. . General managers  of Boundary companies are metallurgical men. To the low costs  and high efficiency attained in  the reduction works, the .prosperity of the district is secondarily one; the primary   causes  are1000 in 1906.    Capacity, 3,000 tons  The Visit of the Government Engineer  Believed to Have Been Unsatisfactory In Results  The syndicate who have been  working the Cariboo is reported  as~ having "secured" theSailor. It  is thought that owing to the  delapidated condition of the Cariboo mill work will be adandoned  on that claim.  W. II. Aldridge is quoted in the  Province as follows:���  '���Over in the Boundary, near  Phoeniz, the Consolidated Company is operating the well known  Snowshoe mine. The .output is  about 20,000 tons per month, averaging one and one-half per cent,  copper, and from $L.S0 to $2.00  in gold and silver, per ton.  The principal product of our  compay is gold with values in  lead, silver and copper in the  order named. As copper takes  fourth rank with us we are not  so seriously affected by present  prices for that metal to the same  extent as mines that are principally copper producers."  MINING MATTERS  Output of Boundary Ores  The low grade mines of the  Boundary,which first began shipment in 1900, sending out 100,000  tons that year, have been  steadily increasing. The 1906  shipments were 1,161,537 tons,  and that of 1907 will be a  larger  Mines         Total to Tons  low grade    end 1906 in 1907  Snowshoe...::    102,466 95,000  Dom Cop Co    400,000 140,000  BCCop Co 1,090,000 1S5,000  Granby Cop Co3,000,000 460,000  DROWNED  S.

It is learned on what is believed  to be reliable authority that the  engineer is determined as he  should be, that the bridge shall be  placed where it will best serve the  public and on the best available  site, and has ordered work stopped at the Mayor's place, aud that  several other sites be surveyed.  The present i idications are  that the independent position  taken by The Times on this matter will be confirmed, and that  neither political influencc,uor the  published correspondence of read}'  writers will weigh.with those who  have the power to decide such  matters.  It seems a pity that the start so"  zealously made should have been  so suddenly checked by the .Engineer, but better lose the dollars  already spent, than squander  thousands more in a foolish public enterprise.  The Times does not think it  makes any difference whether the  bridge is in Mr. Shatfo'rd's constituency or Mt. Naden's. It is  be a public bridge, built by public funds, and not by Mr. Shat-  ford's constituents. And being a  public work, The Times claims  the right to commend or condemn  the same according as in its opinion it is right or wrong.  We expect to see the outcome  of this affair a commendation .of  the stand we originally took when  we expressed our confidence in the  engineer in charge. Closed meet-  in'g"sTatfd=seCfctfcalucuses" are-all-  right in the conduct of political  campaigns, but public enterprises  that will not stand open discussion and public purview deserve  careful investigation by those entrusted with the power to discharge public business.  We repeat that we still expect  to see that bridge built, where it  naturally belongs, on the government town site between the two  present villages and convenient  to the depot of the Midway and  Vernon railway, which we are  still expectant to see constructed,  even if such a hope e.v ,s-s ns  to the taunt of being a liritish  Columbian.  ores is generally   uniform,   con-  The district smelter treatment 1 taining the necessary percentages j McCabe on the box handling   the  of silica, iron, sulphur   and   lime reins of three team<. now   whirl-  to obviate, the necessity of  seeking foreign admixtures, for   fluxing,  to any extent  and   to place  for the month   of   July was over  150,000 tons.

Politically, a British. Columbian is  liable to wake up any old morning and  discover by the morning papers that a  new party has arisen overnight.  British Columbia is the land of discovery. It discovered Joe Martin and  sometimes regrets it. It partially discovered Archie Martin, a nice young  Winnipeg lawyer, and in the pride of  the discovery created htm a judge, but  it has the habit of discovery to blame  for the consequences.  British Columbia has discovered  more labor problems during its young  life than have all the old effete provinces of the east since federation. It has  discovered a first class racial and industrial problem of Imperial interest  and ha�� it already clasitied under three  heads, Tapanese, Hindu and Chinese,  and is not yet satisfied.  A British Columbian was strolling  carelessly about the other morning.  There were no mountains, glaciers, so  cial, political or industrial questions  not"p e-emj.ted or hotnesteaded in. the  neighborhood, so he discovered probably a first-class genuine mastodon, war-  rented to have been in the mastodon  line of business for at least one thousand years before.the Deluge.  This discovery is a little out of the  usual line, as was the discovery of gold  under the lawns of Vancouver suburban residences a few months ago, but it  comes as a relief from the usual racial  and industrial discoveries in British  Columbia, and it deserves the record.  oooooooooooooooooooooooooo  UNTING  CONTRACTOR  AND BUILDER  Dealer   in    Sash,   Doors,  Turned  Work and  Inside Finish,  Etc.

The sacrifice  of human life on the railways of  this continent is becoming appalling-  The Canadian'.railways are killing more than enough, but they  are eclipsed in the record by those  in the United States, For the  year ended July 30th last, 460 people were killed and 603 injured  by railway lines in Canada. In  the year the railways in the United States killed 10,618 and injured 97,706.  This seems a terrible slaughter  much of which might be avoided  under right conditions. The plea  that over two million passengers  were carried for each one killed is  not sufficient excuse.

But greed, the  greed of railway management for  excessive dividends are responsible for a large, altogether too  large per centage of the loss.  Roadbeds are allowed to get out  of order, curves that ought to be  eliminated are allowed to exist,  bridges fall into decay, and deranged equipment is not repaired,  and human life pays the bill.  These and kindred causes might  be removed by putLingmore money into maintances and less into  dividends.

An editorial writer in the  Winnipeg  Telegram attempts to ge.t facetebus i,i  the following article   entitled "Wonderful British Columbia".  He writes: ���  "The British Columbian, the man of  thecountry referred to euphoniously by  Edward Blake as a "sea of mountain*"  when he has a half-hour to spare, goes  out and discovers something.     British  i Columbia is eminently constructed geo  graphically,  topographically,   socially  aud politically for discovery, and   discovery has become a habit among the  people of the Pacific Province of  the  Dominion of Canada.  Any athletic young man with the exploring spirit in active working order  can wander out almost any month in  the year, for there is no close season  for discoveries in British Columbia.'

Barley,, a grain  that  makes  both   bread   and   beer.  Bread, a solid food.    Beer,  a liquid  food.  In making bread, flour   and  yeast are  used;  in making   beer,  barley-malt, hops  . yeast are used.    The same principle is in  are wholesome foods.  In Pabst  Blue  Ribbon   Beer  the Pabst Eight-Day  Malting Process matures the malt slowly and uniformly,  thus transforming every particle of nutriment in the barley  into perfect food substances.  To these are added the invigorating properties of the choicest  hops, by the Pabst brewing process,  which insures absolute purity.  Your system requires a liquid. Why  not use one that is  both food and drink���  IN LIGHTER VEIN  Tke Beer of Quality  The sp'ccial value of Pabst Blue Ribbon at meals is  that it encourages the fluids of the stomach to readier  action���thus aiding you to get the fullest  nourishment from your food.

All Orders promptly atteudedto  Thomas Park, Proprietor  HERE'S A MAN  J. T. Shadforth, iron master of England, who is planning the erection of  huge irou and steel works here, has  been offered 400 Chinaman, to come  here under contract from China and to  work for him for nothing for a year  and a half, provided he will pay there  fares and the head tax of S500 per  man. .  This offer was made by the tyee  Chinaman of this City. After the  term of free work ended Mr. Shadforth,  by the terms of the precious agreement offered, was to pay SI.50 a day to  each man for an indefinite period, which  it may be taken for granted would be  as long as the tyees would continue to  keep the cooliesin bondage to them.  Such is the actual slavery system  which has been worked since Chinamen  were first allowed in this country, and  which the head tax had practically  stopped.  ��� Mr. Shadlorth's plans which are well  under way, call for an expnditure of  fifteen million dollars, and seven years  after a start is made the plant alone  would cover a hundred acresof ground.  Such a concern will provide the population of a town itself with white men  and their families supported by  it.  And Mr. Shadforth declare* that all  his labor will be white. Asiatic labor  he is opposed to on principl e and from  self-interest. From self interest he will  not employ them because he says they  will be useless in his business. ���  Mr. Shadforth will bring his men  with their families from' the north of  England, and they will not only be good  smelter men but union-men, for there  are no stronger union then in the world  Rut the point is the contrast that Mr.  Shadworth's actual plan will make in  its results with that proposed by the  Chinese and there is an object lesson in  this true story for bofh the employers  whosecrctly desire and encourage Asia  tU immigration and for any who have  not givrn the subject serious consideration.  He says that all the white labor  wanted can easily be brought out from'  England, skilled or unskilled. Any  employer here who can guarantee to  give employment to the men of the old  counfry can go there and pick his men  outandthere areinstitutions who willse  that Ihey are assisted to come out without any cost lo the Canadian employer.  This removes the last excuse for admission of Asiatics.���The World.  temperatures and analyzing ' it most  particularly, and in all points the tests  proved purity, uniformity and nourishing qualities as an outspoken healtful  beverage.
