Dry Goods-  Millinery  COPPER FUTURES  Walker's   Cheery   Copper  Weather-  MARKET NOT OVERSTOCKED  Consumers Get Ready to Buy Copper  ���Unmistakable Signs of  Clearing Weather  =CC"  ANNUAL   MEETING  "I feel very confident that there  will be decided improvement in  the metal market very soon. Unmistakable signs of clearing  weather are beginning to appear."  Following the confession that  the copper  market is    decidedly  mixed, Geo. L. Walker, the Boston copper authority comes to  this cheerful conclusion. Mr.  Walker's reasons for so doing are  in the following welcome facts.  "Consumers are watching the  market a erood deal more earnestly than heretofore. It is known  positively that a great many of  them are all ready to buy copper.  There is also basis for the reports  that speculative interests are getting together and preparing to  take over the surplus copper held  by producers if the price is offered  down. There is more life aud  snap to the situation at present,  therefore, than at any time previous in two months.  A representative refining interest, who declared that electrolytic  copper is obtainable-in reasonable  amounts at 14 cents, was found  to regard the future outlook as  hopeful- He thought that the  situation might continue neryous  for a short time, but that it  would soon be better. "There  are about 500 buyers of copper iu  this country, and 700 in Europe;"  he said. "Their stocks of copper  are.practically nil. Suppose only  500 of these 1,200 buyers should  come into the market and take an  average of 100 tons each. This  would amount to 50,000 tons, or  100,000,000 pounds. It would  not mean much of a buying movement, but it would cut in half the  present available supply of copper. If only a few consumers begin buying copper to the extent  of their requirements, the price  must remain firm around the present level; and if anything should  develop that would force consumers to buy, the price will  harden.  The reports that China is again  buying copper in this country ia  confirmed.. Several purchases  havebeen made and inquiriesare  With the exception of .Toll n B.Heeney  whose place was filled by Judge J.V.  O'Doriiiel of Chicago.All the directors  w .ire reelected at the annual meeting  o: the Providence Mining- Co.on Tuesday last. Mark F. Madden, the presi-  d:nt has been in the city all week sup  ervising the plans for. the extension  work decided upon. The shaft will be  s'iuk 400 ft.: farther making a total  depth of 1000 feet. Bonds to the a-  mount of 550,000 will be issued to cover the increased workings. They will  be taken up almost entirely by the present stockholders. Mr. Madden left on  Friday morning for Chicago. The  interests of the Company here will be  underthesuperindenccof W M. Madden.  J.D. Spence was appointed Solicitor  for the Company in the'place of A.M.  Whiteside.  IS IT ANOTHER SMELTER?  The two, hundred thousand dollar  bond held by F.A. Heinze ou the  McKinley in Franklin Camp mines  expires today, October 18. Considerable interest is excited as to whether the  bond will be taken up or not. Several  well known p-ospectors who have properties on the North Fork of the Kettle River claim to- have already been  approached by parties who are anxious  to bond their claims with the understanding that they will be included in  the McKinley group. It is also known  that representitives of the Butte Millionaire are already up the North Fork  and it is claimed that the object they  have iu view is to bond e.iough properties to supply a smelter of their own.

Restell,who was in J. H.Harrison's  office, was stolen. Mr. Restell  tethered the animal at the rear of  the building, and during his fifteen minutes' abscence the animal  disappeared, together with saddle  and bridle, and no trace'of it can  be found so far.  NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER  Charles Dietz, Hon7 President  of the Kettle River and South  Okanagan Pioneer's Society and  one of the first white men in this  district,died on the 9th of October  in the Old Man's Home in Kamloops. He was in his eightieth  year and it was in 1850 when a  young man of 22 years, that he  rounded the Horn and turned up  into the western seas. He hai  been a sailor but when he reached  California the lure of the yellow  metal drew him fromtheseas and  he placer mined there for seven  years. In 1857 he went to Victoria  and came from there by way of  Hope, Similkameen and Rock  Creek, before placer mining was  begun on tbat creek, on to East  Kootenay where he placer mined  for several years.  Leaving there he mined at Pind  D'Orcilli River for a little while  and then returned to Rock Creek  and ��� struck QWhite's Bar where  considerable gold was taken out.  At Camp McKinney he waa one of  the: early prospectors and stiil  held some interests there..'  He was a German by birth, being a native of Stetlin, Germany.  He was born on August 28tb,lS2S  He will be well remembered by  many of the oldest inhabitants o.f  ihe Boundary.  It is stated on good authority  that a standard guage spur will  be built from Toroda Creek to the  Barton mineral claim, situated a.  short distance south of Ferry on  :the"6pp08ite-^side ^cf^the���riverr  The spur will be built by, the  Mountain View Mining Company,  which has a bond on the property.  Considerable development work  has already been done, with highly satisfactory results. Mr.Sneed,  of Bodie. is the moving spirit in  the undertaking, and has interested New York capital in the  property.  On   Tuesday   morning,   at 10  o'clock, the Dominion Copper Co.  at Boundary   Brails closed   down  it's Smelter aud the Rawhide and  Sunset mines which were working  up to that time,    Manager W.C.  Thomas,   when   interviewed   regarding the shut down   on Wednesday morning said that it   had  come as a bolt from the  blue   ou  instructions  from the   president  of the company, Senator Warner  Miller,   of   New York, who had  wired him to cease all  operations  until his arrival.    Senator Miller  with H. N. Melville, one   of  the  directors,    will   leave New York  tonight (Friday) for the Boundary.  Mr. Thomas could not  offer  any  explanation of the fact other than  the present   extremely low prices*  of copper and the very high operating expenses in the way of labor had   compelled   them to close  down     On Wednesday   morning  a few meu were still being employed about the smelter,dumping the  ore into the bins and cleaning up  around the   furnaces.    A considerable supply of coke is on  hand.  Up to th*e day of the shut down,  208 men had been   employed   by  the company.    Previous to  Sept.  21, there   were   very many more  than this.    A late report   credits  Mr. .Thomas with saying that'the  shut down is only,  temporary, in  order to make some necessary repairs.  The rumors on the street are  instructive as axanvass of the  situation. The opinion that the  Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. wi11 take over the properties of the Dominion Co. gained  considerable acceptance yesterday. The tonnage of the smelter  here, it is estimated will form  over one per cent, of the entire  freight haul of the C.P.R. and is  a considerable item to that corporation. It was pointed out that  such a move would go to prevent  the Great Northern from tapping  this trade.  The other b'ueruiu tendency is  to lay the situation at the door  of financial manipulation. Hard  times will have a very appreciable  influence upon the chances of  President Roosevelt  for   a  third  the lines which   marked   off   the  claim.  Whether the right of a holder  of a mineral claim include ownership of timber upon il, is a point  that has never been tested before  here. On account of this fact,  .heMagistrate imposed no penalty  but stated emphatically that the  defendant had no right whatever  to enter on the claim and cut timber. Nor could he remove the  timber already cut thereon.  This case is important for the  community because it touches a  practice all to general. It clearly  establishes the fact that the man  who enters upon another man's  mineral claim to cut and draw  wood therefrom is guilty of theft.  Judge Hallett appeared for the  Plaintiff; J. D. Spence, for the  Defendant.  MINING IN SUNNY JAPAN  Low Wa_es���More Men���Manufacture  Copper Products at  Mines  THE REBEKAH'S DANCE  A large force of Italians is at  present engaged loading up the  steel in the materials' yard west  of town, for shipment to Feruie,  where there is a shortage of steel  for the grade work already completed. This steel was originally  intended for use between Keremeos and Princeton.  The Riverview Farm Co. have  just received a pair of fine young  pure bred hogs from Indiana.  They came by express, the charge  by the railway company being  $72, which makes the hogs rather  costly-. ��  term and it is thought to be the  wish of the large financial., interests all over the United States to  harass the trust-breaking President.  What all these theories really  are worth, it is verv hard to say.  So far as the Boundary district  is concerned all the facilities here  are such that, giveu ��� the same  labor_conditions ore can be mined  here more cheaply than anywhere  else on the continent aud there  is every reason to have great  faith in tbe future, immediate as  well as distant, of the country.  The Dominion Copper Co; will,  it is expected announce their intentions definitely after the arrival of the President early next  week.  "Are you sleepy ? Never mind.  It was the best time of our lives."  The sun was just beginning to  think of rising when the persis+ent  strains of '-Home Sweet Home"  warned; the young people at the  R.ebekah's dance on Thursday  morning, that it was time for them  to g�� home. The music which  was provided by Messrs.McHenry  and Moore remains unequalled in  Boundary festivities and the dances were thoroughly enjoyed.

Up to the time of writing nothing has been done in the matter  of appointing a postmaster here  in place of the late Ed. A. Hain.  Apparently the fact that a vacancy exis'ts has been forgotten by  the authorities.  R. Meyerhoff, who has been on  a vitis to Southern Idaho,returned home Sunday evening.  A little silver button, on which  a dancing, bear on a pole has  eunded, is on exhibition in the  window of P.W.George &Co.It is  from a sample of ore taken from  the Duncan mine, the property of  the Wallace Mountain Mining Co.  This particular piece of ore wben  assayed was worth more than  $9,000 to the ton. The assay was  made some.weeks ago on the basis  of 68 cent, silver. Look for it.  This is what tbe Boundary can do  Nothing has yet been done towards securing a railway station  for Anaconda. A little concerted  action on the part of the citizens  in the form of a petition might  do much toward convincing the  C.P.R. of the need for at least a  flag station here. ��� Anaconda  News. . _  Charles An grove, an old timer  miuer of the Boundary' is ill with  lung trouble in the hospital at  San Andreas, Cal. Angrove left  Greeuwdod only about the first of  September last and as he was one  An interesting   visitoj   at  the  Smelter and  mines   of the  B.C.  Copper Co. on Tuesday and Wednesday was F. Yainada, engineer  of  the   Ashio   Mine, mined   and  owned by the Furukana Mining  Company of Tokio.    The properties of the Furukana Company are  situated about 80 miles from Tokio and comprise about  30  mines.  In many respects the methods of  working differ  from  those used  here   although   the    process   of  smelting'and converting  is  clone  right at  the   mines   themselves:-?"'  Labor   is   on   the contrary very  cheap, although   this   year,  the  men's wages have been raised to  40 cents for a day of eight hours.  "We have no coke shortage* i-rr  our   mines," said   Mr.   Yam ad a'.  Mr. Taranosuki who owns all the  stock of the company, is the owi_-  er of all the mines in .the district."  Mines are not mixed up the  way  they are here.    We have a   great  deal of coal  in this  district  and  from some of it, we get a plentiful  supply of coke."  The largest of these mines produces20 tons of copper a day.  The ore carries about 4 per cent,  in copper. It is concentrated to  11 and= 12-per*-**cent, before .it---is**-  smelted. About 1,200 tons of  copper ore is shipped from the  mines yearly.  ''The veins in our mines are  not so regular and are thinner  than here," said Mr. Yamada.  "The convolutions of the earth's  crust are smaller and more irregular than this country."  Another interesting fact about  the Furukana mines is that they  have 2 Electric Refining processes  each capable of handliug about  12,000 tons a day and 2 wire manufactories operating on their own  limits. About 10 per cent, of  their output is made into wire. A  great deal of the rest is exported,  now mainly to South China and  India. Formerly a market was  fouud for some of it in Hamburg,  Germany.  "^MrTYamail a" i s~a~ g r ad u a te- of"  the Imperial University, Tokio,  He came to .Canada to inspect  some mines located in the Queen  Charlotte Islands.

A NEW COMPRESSOR  The installation of a new compound duplex   air   compressor at  the Crescent Mine was completed  Ibis week by E. G. Wnr-- *:i of the  Electric Light Co,    The machine  will make 800 cubic feet of air per  minute and will handle   approximately six 37 inch   machines.  It  is driven bya 125 horse-pov;er in'-  ductiori'    motor.    The   motor   'is  three phase and operates at a pressure of 2,200 volts. Power wili-bd  supplied   by the West   Kootenay  Power and Light Co. and as soon  as some, pump fittings which   are  necessary to supply water to cool  the jackets of the compressor  arrive, the machine will be  put   in u  immediate operation.    The mine  is now equipped with   a  six-drill  compressor, an electric hoi^t and  au electrically driven ventilating  fan.   The shaft has been sunk already about 250 feet and it is expected that the  increased  equipment will bring some surprisingly  good results for   Crescent   stockholders.  ���fljflgfiKiE^ S^P��3^^^^^^>S*^^'__S-y^^a^__^^g_B  THE    &��\3fl3ARY   CREEK   TIMES.  m fflffiamffifflM  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  ���J***  CF*  o=*l  c"H  -=���  CP*  cF*  c_s<  '7-=--��  cr*  CF*  CF*  CF*  C_^  ���CF*  CF*  (F*  BB  Capital, all paid up, $14,40MOo!

The  old news service is being* restored  unconditionallyto the newspapers  outside of Winnipeg at the same  rates as were in force before Aug.  1st.  The only difficulty that still a-  waits adjustment is the fixing of  the relations between the C.P.R.  and the Western Associated Press,  to which most of the newa papers  of Western Canada now belong.  This is to be gone into an a conference between representitives  of the two organizations, and  with the resumption of. amicable  relations between the newspapers  and the telegraph company it is  expected that no difficulty will be  experienced in reaching a satisfactory arrangement,  As usual the "Canadian Pacific Railway at headquarters disclaim any knowledge of the  change" which has caused the  trouble.  Geo. L. Walker, Editor of the  Boston Commercial, last summer  made an extensive trip over this  country and in a recently published review of the Inland Empire Electrical Railroad System  j has some things to say of its resources and of its future. The  article is written with reference  mainly to the country more immediately surrounding Spokane  but includes as well the Boundary  District of British Columbia.  Inexhaustible Natural Resources.  ���'The Inland Empire, as the  Spokane country is known locally,  comprises 150,000 square miles  and extends for a distance of 150  to 200 miles in all directions from  Spokane, an area three times that  of the New England States. Spo-  ane is the chief metropolis between  St. Paul and the coast cities and  is the natural, as well as commercial, distributing point of this  vast area.  This Spokane country is not dependent upon any one resource}  but has a wonderful diversity of  natural advantages. Its forests  in 1906 produced 1,2.0,000,000  feet of lumber, the output of 400  sawmills, valued at over $30,000,  000 Its wonderful mineral deposits in the famous Coeur d'Alenes  100 miles east, and in the Boundary country of southern British  Columbia have figured largely in  prosperity and   growth of Spok-  for  the   great mining  camps of  the Northwest and of all   Alaska  will be raised in this country, and  a goodly portion of the  shinning  gold accumalated  b7   successful  Alaskan minerals already  being  **-.'*-*  used to   purchase   and   develop  homes in the cities  of   Spokane,  Tacoma, Seattle and Portland.  oooooooooooooooooooooo<��<*oo  t  THE FUTURE OF COPPER  Daniel   Guggenheim,   head   of   the  American Smelting* and Refining* Company is reported to have discussed the  future of the copper situation a day  or  two ago in Salt Lake City when  there  on a tour of inspection of the company's  plants in the  west.    Mr.  Guggenheim  says the Garfield plant of the company,  near Salt Lake, and the plant at Ely,  Nevada,will be crowded to their fullest  Speaking of the recent curtailment of  copper output he states that this was a  natural-outgrowth of the fact that  the  world   is   doing   about  5 per cent, too  much business for   the   money it  has.  He   does  not   anticipate   serious hard  times, and declares that as soon as biisi.  ness shrinks to a par with the  amount  of capital to be invested, the  financial  situation will be relieved.     Copper, he  says, is as good as ever.and as soon as  money is freer the cfamand for copper  will.be greater than ever."

Attention was called rather  forcibly on Monday Afternoon to  the fact that the City By-laws  governing the leaving- of horses  untied upon the streets were not  been enforced. Within an hour  or so, two horses went careering  down-Copper Street on and away  from the sidewalks, free and  driverless.  Usually at that time in the afternoon there are, it is said, some  twenty or more children playing  or in charge of Nurse girls on this  section of the street. The danger  to them and to human life generally is too easily and 4oo lightly  passed over. The time for the  removal of the danger is now, and  sot after some serious accident  kas taken place.  We understand that the thing  has been brought to the notice of  the Council and that the Chief of  Police has been notified to see  that the By-Law is enforced.  It is now the duty of the people of the city and particulary of  drivers and owners of horses to  assist the Chief in the keeping of  the law, and protect the public  against injury in this matter.  One result of  the  agitation a  gainst the immigration of Asiatics is that all the world  is   now  talking of    and    writing    about  British  Columbia.

Vancouverites  chase him   across   the line into  United States and  the people  of  Washington   chase  him     back.  Statesmanship and brickbats  are  working hers at cross-purposes.  ane."  The Boundary Mines.  "The output of the Boundary  mines, 150 miles to the north of  Spokane is $15,000,000 per annum  in copper and gold. This district  in 1906produce'd 1.175,000 tons of  ore. The famc/us Granby mine  alone had an output of over 20,000,  000 pounds of fine copper arid paid  net profit's of $1,823,617."  One of the things we are most  likely to forget in the presence of  rich mineral deposits is suggested  in Mr. Walker's emphasis oh the  agricultural resources of the country. As the country develops and  comes more and more to a commercial basis, it will be found that  the valleys of Southern British  Columbia will have resources of  this kind which only a few observant people now recognize. Mr.  Walker says:,  ���'The moat important resource  any country can have, however, is  agriculture, and Spokane's territory it well provided for along  this line.

MEDALS   FROM  BELGIUM  Bare Trophies Won at the International Hygienic and Pare Food  Exposition at Antwerp.  MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. C���Valued  above the other hundreds of awards voted  to the Pabst brcwwlng .company by national and International expositions held  at various times in the past few decades,  a collection of awards which was received  by Col. Gustavc Pabst from Antwerp will  occupy a higher "place in the esteem of  the company than all the other medals  in the Pabst collection.  The awards were brought to Milwaukee  by special emissary from the International  Hygienic and. Pure Food exposition at  Antwerp, Belgium, and include the cross  of honor of Belgium, known as the grand  prize of the exposition, a gold medal and  a diploma elaborately studded with seals  of noted Europeans, and setting forth  that Pabst "Blue Ribbon," the beer of  quality, received the highest award for  purity and excellence at the great exposition held in Antwerp. - The awards  were made only after the severest tests,  known to enlightened science, and demonstrate, under the signatures and seals of  the Jury and commissioners, that the  product of the Pabst Brewing company  stood alone among hundreds of other  beers submitted at Antwerp for the exhaustive tests of experts.  The arrival of the special messenger  from Belgium was an event at the offices  of the Pabst Brewing company, and already the medals have been exhibited to  many Milwaukeeans interested in the excellence of this city's product as compared  ���with'that of the best known breweries in  two hemispheres.  GET HIOHEST POSSIBLE HONORS.  The gold medal, which Is about two and  a half inches in-diameter, bears on one  side the head ih relief of King Leopold  of Belgium, who was the patron of tho  exposition at Antwerp. On the other side  is a likeness, also in relief, of the huge  building at,Antwerp In which the pure  food and hygienic exhibit was held.  The cross of honor, or grand prize, is of  beautiful design, somewhat similar to  other high European orders. It bears  decorations of oak leaves set in gold and  red enamel. In the middle of the medal  proper is the coat of arms of the city of  Antwerp. The medal is attached to the  crown of Belgium, which In turn Is suspended from a ribbon of the tri-color of  Belgium.  DIPLOMA OF BEAUTIFUL DESIGN.  The diploma setting forth the fact that  "Blue Ribbon" beer was awarded the  grand Prix at the Antwerp exposition is a  beautifully designed document bearing  four idealistic figures. The entire wording Is In the French language, the court  language of Belgium. The body of the  diploma sets forth that the "diplome de  grand prlx" has-been awarded to the  Pabst Brewing company, of Milwaukee.  The ��� array of official signatures is tho  chief feature of the document.   The dlplo-  m: Is signed by the president of the jury  which awarded the honors, by the lord  mayor of the city of Antwerp, honorary  member; the administrator general, a;id  president of the committee of commercial  patronage.  The signatures of the exposition officials  are verified and attested to by the minister  of foreign affairs of the Royal Belgium  government. All these signatures are in  turn attested to by the vice and deputy  consul general representing the United  States government at Antwerp, the two  certifications being written in the lower  margin of-.the diploma and accompanied  by the respective seals of office.  The background of the middle portion of  the diploma sets forth-in dim outline a  view from the harbor.of the port of Aiv.r  werp, showing the great shipping interests  and in the extreme background the famous cathedral of Antwerp with'Its high  steeple. -     -.���%���.������.-���.  With the rising interest, much greater  in European countries than in the United  States, in pure foods and. the general subject of hygiene, the International Hygienic.  and Pure Food exposition' has assumed ai:  important place. To-day its exhibits are  the Mecca for thousands of manufacturers, scientists, legislators and workers for  the public good from every, corner of the  world. The awards of the juries are made  with suc-h unmistakable impartiality and  are so decidedly announced for or against  certain food products that the knowledge  gained from a visit to the exposition  serves as absolute protection against  fraud.  The exposition is held annually at different cities decided upon by tlio board of  LINMIELLBERG  COPIES OF THE GOLD A1EDAL.  Cross of Honor.

In IflOC it was held in  Paris, this year in Antwerp and next year  it will be held in another^city of the continent .or in Great Britain. Crqwned..hea<5B  of Europe unite, in aiding Its welfare, and  every civilized country each year sends its  most noted scientists to participate in the  gathering together of experts from all  parts of the world. In Europe the exposition is annually given the greatest publicity throughout the different centers of  population, it being the understood object  to apprise the people of what is good and  what is not good for their general welfare.  The expositions of 1001! and 15107 were attended by thousands of tourists from  America, the recent rise of public interest  in the subject of pure foods encouraging  investigation in the products of the world  brought together in one vast exhibit.  The department of brewing at the Antwerp exposition was one of the chief features. The fact that the first beer was  brewed in what is now the kingdor. of Belgium added to the interest in the exhibit  and inspired wonderful showings from the  different interests of the world. .- All the  great breweries of Germany, America,  England and other countries made efforts  to excel In their exhibits, and when the  time came for the highest awards interest  was at fever heat. ���  The tests of the hundreds of samples of  bottled beers were most severe. The jury  which made the exhaustive tests of the  brewery products was made up of scientists, university professors and chemists  of note appointed by the Belgium minister  of education.  SUBJECTED TO HEAT AND COLD.  The jury's task was a severe one, the  tests of each beer extending over a considerable time. Pabst "Blue Ribbon" beer,  along with all the others, was for weeks  alternately subjected to extreme degrees  of heat and cold. Of all the beers 60  tested Pabst "Blue Ribbon" beer was the  only one found upon examination to retain  all tlie properties originally contained in  the brew. It was finally determined that  the "Blue Ribbon" beer took first: place  among air the other varieties submitted  by American and European breweries.  Consequently the highest possible honor*  of the exposition were awarded.  The fact th-tt the American beer took  first place -was all the more remarkable  froni the fact that it wns necessarily  transported a great distance, a factor that  might ordinarily have been a decided  handicap as against other beers sent to  Antwerp. The time that the beer was in  transit from the brewery in Milwaukee  was something like four weeks, and "it its  a generally accepted theory that beer loses,  through transportation.: The Pabst beer  apparently was unaffected. Its durability-  and pureness were found upon examination to be without fault.  The exposition at Antwerp this year waa  held during the months of June, July and  August, the months in which the tourist)  travel Is largest1 It was opened by King;  Leopold, under whose protectorate it was  held, the- various monarchies and the  French republic appointing delegates to  represent them in the. international show.  The exhibits...were placed in the great  building erected several years ago at Antwerp and designed especially for large ex-,  positions of the nature of the pure food  show. The juries appointed to make testa  in the several departments of the exposition were appointed by the Belgian minister of education .-nrtth the.approval of the  'different natrons" participating in the gathering, the members being selected with  special view to their peculiar fitness to  judge of the merits of the products coming  under their examination. One of the noted  members of the jury Which undertook the  stupendous task of testing the bottled  beers and awarding prizes waa Prof.  Alfred Jorgensen.'.'of Copenhagen^ Denmark, than whom there is no better known  authority on the subject of scientific and  hygienic brewing. Others on the jury  were men of undoubted ability in their  line} The fact that the host of exhibitor*  in the department of brewing unanimously  approved of the membership of the jury  bespeaks their ability. _.'���������.  It is probable that the awards now In  the care of the Pabst Brewing company  will be placed on exhibition at an early  date, it being the,desire of the officials to  permit the public at large to examine th*  medals and diploma signifying the par excellence of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. ,  The home of Mr. Dagman of  Anaconda was the scene of a quiet  but pretty wedding on the evening of Wednesday October the 9th,  when Mr. Alfred John Line],  foreman at the B,C.

NOTICE TO CREDITORS  THE USES OF COPPER  The average man, if asked to name,  offhand, the uses of copper, would  b2 likely to reply that the metal was  used mainly for coining pennies and  making-wire, yet these uses employ  barely more than a quarter of the copper that i* produced. On second  thought he might smile at naming copper coinage as an important consumer  of the metal,, .yet.rWis first thought  would be nearer right than his second,  for the Chinese Empire has used SO,00��  -tons of copper for making new coins  within the past two years, thereby increasing the circulation medium of the  country to the extent of 4 ounces for  each inhabitant���for while 50,000 tons  of copper is a large quantity of metal,  sufficient to load 1,000 freight cars of  the heaviest type used on American  railroads, it is but a quarter of an avoir-  dupoise pound per capita when  divided among 400,000,000 people.  Only the expert or those engaged  most actively in the copper industry  have the slightest idea of the diversified uses to which copper is put. Cop-  -per enters into, almost every form of  human activity, and the multiplicity  of its uses is most surprising. Electric  light, power and traction are immense  consumers of the met il in the form of  wire, and, telephones and. telegraph s  find it iudispensable,yet electricity requires only a trifle more than a quarter  of the metal,marie. The, 'engineering  trades consume more than half of all  the copper produced, mainly in1 the  form of brass, but there are : about a  score of friction metals and alloys,  each having ite specific use, into which  copper enters as a component part.

His  sermons were earnest, forceful,  and eloquent and, in the evening  attracted a. very large congregation.  At the close of each service.  Mr. Powell mad a blackboard appeal for the removal  of the entire debt on the  church property. The mortgage  on the church had been reduced  by the efforts of the the late Mrs.  Pope to $365 and this amount,"  the preacher had apportioned on  the blackboard in square.s of $50,  $25, SLO and $5. This movement  originated with the off-r of  Mr. Victor Dynes of Nelson, formerly a member of this church to  subscribe $50 if the whole debt  were wiped out. The appeal in  the mornir.g was ai swred by $280  and in the evening this amount  was increabed so that only $45 remained to be raised on Mondav.  One feature of .the evening service was the solo of Mrs. Murray.  Her singing was muchappreci-  ated by the audience.  .  ' From 5.30 until after 8 o'clock  Monday Eve, dinner was served  to more than 200 people who  seemed thoroughly to enjoy the  ��� occasion.

Mr. Powell in opening the first section of his lecture  on "People I have Met" had the  pleasure of announcing the success of his efforts to raise the  money necessary to complete the  debt. He also stated that the  proceeds of the dinner amounted  to about $125. Two intervals  were taken advantage of by the  lecturer, in the first of which  Mrs. Murray sang beautifully a  solo, 7'The Children's Home." In  the second interval Mrs. Oliver  and Mrs, McCutcheon rendered a  duet that was much appreciated.  Mr. Powell's recollections of |the  people he had met were often  humorous, and, sometimes^ very  pathetic.
