The most important event in local mining circles in recent months
is the resumption of dividend payments by the Granby Consolidated
oompany, announcement having
been received here that tbe directors
have declared a disbursement of \\
per cent on the issued capitalization
of 1,500,000 shares at 1100 a share,
which makes the amount of divi
dend \12i>flQD, to be distributed at
once among the stockholders of
record ou January 17.       ,
The last dividend payment prior
to this was Deeemher 30, 1910, to
which time the total distributed was
14,048,630, and the distribution of
the new dividend will make the aggregate payments to date $4 273 630
It is believed by local stockholders
in the company that the payments
will be continued permanently, with
premising possibilities of a material
increase in tht dividend rate in a
short time.
It is believed also that tbe re-
resumption of disuibution of a part
of tbe earnings of the Granby will
not necessitate outside assistance in
financing the completion of the
smelter at Granby bay and the
further development of Ihe mines at
Hidden oreek. but to guard against
the possibility of conditions arising
that will compel tbe enlistment of
additional capital, the directors have
called a meeting early in February
to arrange for a Imnd issue and to insure its flotation in an emergency.
Granby's treasury is said to con
tsin at present approximately . II.
500,000, and the monthly earnings
are averaging about 1150,000. Con
structioil of the Granby bay smeller

A, D. Morrison this morning received a elegram from J. A. McCallum, delegate from the Grand
Korks Poultry association to the
Provincial Poultry Show in Victoria,
stating tbat Grand Forks had been
selected as the place fqr holding tbe
next provincial show. Tbe show
will be held in tbis city on December 10 14. inclusive, of the present
calendar year, the directors having
decided to hold it month earlier
tban bas been the eustom heretofore.
Local poultrymen feel jubilant
over the victory of the city iti securing tbe show, and predict that it
will be tbe means of attracting a
larger crowdof people to tbe city than
any fair or carnival ever beld here
haB done. One thing is certain, it
will be the means of stimulating an
industry which bas already grown
to'large proportions. And the exhibition should prove of considerable
educational value to our poultry
raisers, even though they are progressive and wide awake. Besides
exhibits of the best breeds from all
parts of the province, representative
poultry breeders from the northwestern states will be compstitors
for-prizes, and many new methods
in tbe business will undoubtedly be
brought to ligbt.

Protests Against Idea That
Laurier Showed Lack of
Imperial Spirit
The London Times on the Uth
inst, published a letter from Earl
Grey, in which   he   takes txception
to tbe way in which Auiten Chamberlain referred to Canadian affairs
in hia speech the previous evening.
V"I desire to protest," ha says,
"against the assumption tbat Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's policy ^ of reciprocal free trade in certain natural products between Canada and tbe
United States showed any want of
imperial support on his part. On
tbe contrary, it is believed by Sir
Wilfrid and his colleagues that the
free entry of the products of Canadian farms, fisheries and fo_-<._>ts into
a protected market of over 90.00U,-
OuO people would adiigreatly to the
wealth uf Canada, and thus create
an increased market for tbe protected manufactures of Canada and tbe
United Kingdom. That caused tbem
to tavurj.be policy of reciprocity; it
is possible 1 may go further and say
tbat il is uot itu probable that had
tbis . policy been accepted by tbe
peopls of Canada, tbe British preference wonld have been further -increased.
"As one of those who deBire to secure tbe nearest possible approximation to inter-imperial free trade, that
firstly revenue requirements and
secondly national necessities of eacb
of the self governiug units of the
empire will permit, I am inclined to
agree with those who believe tbat
tbe adoption of thc reciproaity pro
pusals .night bave Drought about a
nearer approximation to tbat ideal
inter imperial free trade whicb is_.su
dear to the heart of Austen Chamberlain.
"No, Sir Wilfrid's policy was not
conceived in any anti imperial spi(it,
but the speeches of Taft and others
alarmed Canadians as to the chai-
acter of the American ambitions and
had mucb influence in causing tbe
people to reject the proposals of lbe
Canadian statesmen, who are just as
prepared as Mr. Chamberlain him
self to spend Iheir last dollar and
tbeir. last drop of blood in any struggle necessary to maintain the integrity of tbe empire."
A Democratic Member
J. H. Burnham, member for West
Peterboro, has introduced in the fed
eral parliament a bill having for its'
object the abolition of titles of honor
in Canada. He wants section 12 of
the British North American Act, un
der which, he says, the conferring of
jitiles is recommended by the governor general in council, amended. He
fears that titles will lead to class and
social distinctions incompatible with
thn genins of democracy. Mr Burn
ham's apprehension is not unfounded.
Fortunately, the great proportion of
titles conferred upon Canadians are
not hereditary, if they were, in a few
years we might have as fine a collf-i-
tion of nabobs as ever threw uut a
budget But the striking circumstance
in connection with Mr Burnham's
agitation is that the father of it he-
longs to a party which from time im
memorial has cherished a touching regard for titled aristocracy and looks
upon democracy as a pBStilence.—Victoria Times.

1, A postmaster is acquired to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a subscriber does not take his paper out of
the postolliee, and state the reason for
its hot being taken. Any neglect to
do so makes the postmaster responsi
ble to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper
discontinued he must puy all arrearages, or the publishers may continue
to send it until payments are made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the office or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3, Any pet-son who takes a paper
out of the postoffice, whether directed
to his name or not, or whether lie has
subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
stopped and the publisher continues to
send it, the subscriber is bound to
pay for it if he takes it out of the
post office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Points the
Way to Health and Strength
Ask yourself the Important question whether you are as strong aB
you were a year ago, as bodily fit as
you should be. Many a reader has
to confess "No." Some weakening
ailment haB during the past year laid
hold ot the system, unfitting you for
the duties ot life and seriously clouding the outlook of the coming days.
It may he rheumatism with ita sharp
twinges of pain, indigestion, headache, nervous debility, depression and
lack of energy, or the pains and
ailments whioh only common folk
know. It ls well to know that all
these weakening disorders arUe from
an Impoverished condition of the-
blood. I^enew and enrich your blood
and all your-troubles will cease. This
is a strong statement, but lt ls mad;
on the testimony of thousands who
once suffered, but who have gained
health and strength by the aid of the
new, rich blood supplied by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. We can quote
thousands of cases similar to the following: Mr. Jos. Grandmalson is a
young man well known In the town
of St. Jerome, Que. He says: "For a
couple ot years I began to find my
strength, falling but did not dream that
the trouble was serious. As I grew
weaker I began t'o doctor, but lt did
not help me. The- least exertion
made my heart palpitate violently, my
stomach seemed out of order and my
whole system became so run down
that I was finally to'rced to quit work.
I had now been doctoring for almost
six months and-was very naturally
growing discouraged. At this juncture I read of a case similar to mine,
cured through the use ot Dr. Williams' Fink Pills, and decided to try
tliem. I took the Pills .faithfully for
about two months, gradually growing
stronger and at the end of that- time
I was as well as any man could be.
I shall always praise the medicine
that raised me from despair to the
blessing ot good health."

One ot the sources ot rheumatism Is
from overloading the system with add

As soon as improper food ls abandoned and Qrnpe-1-Juta ls taken regularly, digestion Is made strong, the organs do their work ot building up good

year to 350 Welsh miners, who out ol
the fullness of their gratitude presented His Highness with a beautifully
illuminated address and nuggets valued ot $100,000, the proceeds of Welsh

was that the prince had an ingenious
press agent, perhaps the first of his
race, who prevailed on certain newspapers to print accounts of these marvelous ceremonies.
But the launching of the Mantua

There is * good deal of individual- -
ity about the parrot, ta whatever
tribe he may belong. Tlie grey parrot from the West Coast of Africa and
Prince'* Island is supposed to be ths
hest talker, but the Indian bird, although perhaps not so clear ot
speech, fs often quite as clever.
A writer ia London Ideas recently
hod aii interview with a dealer in
' parrots ol every known species. By
judicious education, lie said, a parrot
nf almost i.ny kind, from the tiny
budgerigar to the gigantic macaw,
might be converted into 'a talker.
"My method?" he repeated. "Well,
they nre simple enough. I allow my
parrots como proportion of their native food—bananas, palm, nuts and
tho like. I begin by instructing them
to pronounce one word, allowing tliem
two days to master it. and gradually
increasing their vocabulary to three
or four words. 1 (hen make sentences
of words that are easily Joined together. It takes a male bird at most
two weeks to master half a dnr.cn
short sentences in one language. The
females are not quite so quick.
"In teaching a parrot, un important
secret is to demonstrate the meoning
of the word or sentence if possible,
so that it will seem to speak intelligently. For instance, pulling a newspaper from my pocket, I will say,
'What's the time?" The parrot will
soon learn to suit the word to the
