Take His Place
The regular meeting of the city
council was held in the council
chambers on Monday evening, the
mayor and all the aldermen being in
attendance.
A communication from Dr. Fagan, provincial health officer, soliciting a donation from the city for the
Kamloops anti-tuberculosis sanatorium, was laid on the table until the
estimates for the current year have
been prepared.
The clerk wns instructed to pay
the city's membership fee in the
Union of British Columbia Municipalities.
The city solicitor reported having
forwarded certificates of deeds of
city property to Kamloops for regis.
tration.
An application from Sam Baker
for a position as a city employee was
referred to the board of works.
Jeff Davis & Co. made application
for the use a portion of the street for
material during the construction of
their new store.   Granted.
Thomas   Bird,   city   electrician,
' handed in his resignation, tbe same
to take effect April 30th.    On motion, the resignation was accepted.
Applications for tbe position of
city electrician were received from
A. C. Marchanton and W, J. Shannon. Both applications were accompanied by numerous recommeu
dations. The members of tbe council appeared to think that, all other
qualifications being equnl, Mr. Shannon was entitled to the position by
reason of his long eesidence in the
city, and on motion of Aid. Whiteside and Davis, Mr. Shannon was
appointed city electrician at the
same si.hry as iB paid the present
electrician.
The chairman of the board of
works reported that a sidewalk nad
been built from the Hotel Province
to First street; a culvert hud been
constructed in the Prest addition at
u cost of £13; the "high line" on
Sixth street had been an expensive
piece of work; some repairs were
needed to the Columbia bridge; the
city street sprinkler was in a bud
state of repairs, and should be replaced hy a new one; the water
tank had been very low in the early
mornings during the past, week, thus
causing a menace to ttie city in the
event of an outbreak of fire. The
water question was discussed for
some time. The general opinion appeared to be that the shortage of
water was caused by leaks iu the
mains.
The water rate to the Kettle Valley line was restored to the former
price of $12 per month.
The water and light committee
was authorized to have a new hydrant put in at Bridge and Second
streets.
The chairman of the board of
works was authorized to purchase a
carload of lumber.
The chairman of the health and
relief committee reported that there
was one city patient in the hospital
at present—the man who attempted
to commit suicide with a broken
bottle last week.
The health and relief committee
was instructed to have the city
dumping grounds fenced.
The clerk was instructed to have
notices published in the papers no
tifying property owners to clean
their premises by May 1.
The city clerk reported that Wm.
Bonthron had agieed to pay $1500
for 90x60 feet on the corner Winnipeg avenue and Firststreet, and that
he would ereci thereon a $10,000
building, to be completed by September 1st next.
The city solicitor stated that before the city could legally dispose of
property it had acquired at tax sales,
it would first be necessary to enact
a bylaw giving it authority to do so.
A temporary loan bylaw wus introduced and advanced to its third
reading.
Notice was given of a bylaw authorizing the city to sell its real
estate.
The council then adjourned.
NEWS OF THE CITY
The contract for the foundation
and basement of Bower and Pribil-
sky's new block on First street was
let a few days ago. --the plans have
been prepared by Rohert-,McIntosh.
The building will have a mintage on
First street of 41 feet„.and will be fi7
feet long. It will be one story high,
with a basement, and will be partitioned off into two stores. It is to
be constructed of brick, with a marble and plate-glass front. It is expected that the building will be
ready for occupancy inside of two
months.
A meeting of the Grand Forks
Cricket club was held in the E. T.
bank on Monday last, the attendance being good. The following
officers were elected for the present
season: President, M. Burrell, M.
P.; vice-president, H. W. Gregory;

H. A. Thornberg, a Great Northern employee, who attempted to
commit suicide with the glass from
a broken bottle one day (luring the
latter part of last week, and who has
since been given medical treatment
at the Cottage hospital, has recovered
sufficiently to be able to leave that
institution today. It is said that
Thornberg wue crazed by strong
drink at tbe time he made the rash
attempt.
The Electrical Workers' union of
the city held a successful and very,
enjoyable entertainment in their hall
on First street on Wednesday evening. A meritorious program of vocal and instrumental music, brief
speeches and recitations, was rendered. Refreshments were also
served, and everybody present spent
an enjoyable evening.
Fred Galipeau.an employee of the
Granby smelter, met with quite a
serious accident on Wednesday by
being caught between one of the
electric charge cars and an ore
chute. One of his legs were broken,
and the knee was also badly crushed.
He will be laid up for about two
months.
If this spasmodic spurt of unparalleled enterprise in the local journalistic field keeps up much longer,
The Sun will soon be compelled to
present each and every one of its
readers with a spelling book.
B. C. COPPER CO.
Boston   Financial   Journal
Reviews the Greenwood
Copper Producer
Chance That the Company
Will Acquire Dominion
Copper Co.
On June 1 last this company resumed operations with copper under 13 cents a pound. The total production since resuming has been
something like 330,000 tons of a
gross smelter value of approximately
0,032,000. This gives a value of
about S3.40 per ton in all metals.
The profit was $235,000, or less than
SO cents a ton, leaving $2.60 a ton
to pay all expenses of mining, smelting and reduction to blister copper
in the form it was marketed. This
record is said to be unique on this
cnutinent. About 75 per cent of
Boundary ore values are in copper.
Mining in the huge low-grade Boundary veins has paid, but it has paid
because it has been done along the
most approved scientific lines. Since
resuming last June, the company
has paid off $170,000 of debt.
The report of the company for the
yearended November 30, 1908,shows
total receipts of #1,099,959, while
net profits amounted to hut 803,691.
The report covers two periods, thnt
of the suspension of milling and
smelting operations for five months
from December 1, 1907, to April 30,
1908, and during the period of operation from May 1 to November 30,
1908. During the latter period the
proceeds from metal shipmehts were
$1,086,635; profits from ore sold,etc,
$13,324, making the total receipts
$1,099,959. Deducting expenses,
maintenance,  etc.,   $899,465, tliere
is left a profit for seven   months   of
$200,484. Deducting balance carried to general profit and loss account, representing a   decreased in
the market value of metals unsettled
for November 30, 1907, during  pus-
pension   of operation, and items in
suspense (810P.793), there are  left
net profits for the year   of $93,691.
The previous surplus, November 30,
1907, was 076,041, making the total  with a staff
profit and loss surplus 8269.732,
The general balance sheet  as   of
November   30,    1908, compares   as
follows:
| pound of line copper. The net
| profits from operation from June 1,
when production commenced, to
November 30, were $238,413, from
which has been deducted expenditure in reopening the property during May, #37,929, leaving a balance
ot'profit of operations from May 1 to
November 80 of #200,484 The- year
has closed with the mines and reduction works in excellent condition
and the outlook for the current year
is satisfactory if we leave out of account the continued depression in
the metal market. As matters now
stand, the company has| no deb's,
aud has an ample surplus in its
treasury. It owns its own smelter
and converter, with a capacity of
2000 tons per day, and it is stated
that a five-year supply of ore is now
blocked out. It is now producing
over one million pounds of copper
per month, at a cost of 9.996 cents
a pound, or at a net profit, with copper at 14 cents, of something like
$50,000 per month, of which gold
and silver values average about 30
per cent. The coinpany has been
producing copper for eight years
past, and during practically all of
that time there has been a good
market for the stock, with sales as
high as 822 per share. I believe that
it would be a good buy around 7, 8
or 9, and I would not be surprised
to see it selling at $12 per share or
better during the present year. I
certainly do not think that the price
of copper will go much lower. On
the contrary, the trend from this
time onward should he upward, but
while I would not care to say that
the metal will never again reach its
nigh price of two years ago, I believe it will be a long time before
such a figure will again be attained,
"'he highest price recorded for copper in New York was 50A cents in
1865. The following year 42e wns
quoted, and in 1872, 44 cents. In
1885 it sold below 10 cents, and
from 1894 to 1897, inclusive, th
price was very low. From that time
onward, with the exception of 1892,
the price had showed a steady advance until 1907, when it sold ut 26
cents a pound.
There seems to be a chance that
the British Columbia will buy or
lease the properties of the Dominion
Copper company, which is now being reorganized under the name nf
the New Dominion Copper company. The reorganization committee is asking authority of the shareholders to sell the properties, if such
a course should be deemed advisable,
nd as Frederick Keffer, consulting
engineer of the British Columbia,
assistants, completed
last November an examination of
the Brooklyn and Rawhide mineB
of the Dominion, it looks as il there
might be something afoot.    In fact,

Copper is the everlasting enigma.
For decades it has been the  delight
of market jngglers, and the confusion
of   speculative   wiseacres, says   the
Miningjand Scientific   Press.   That
copper has heen on the free list and
consequently suhject to  the   tidal
improvements of economic law may
in part account for the phenomenon.
The public looks ever for the cloven
foot; it believes less in  natural   law
than in the   mysterious market influences of sinister operators in Wall
street.   The public has persisted  in
regarding  the  Copper    Producers
association as a trust in disguise, attributing the low price of copper   to
the malicious designs of that organization.    In point of fact no combination for regulating production and
prices exists.   Such a  combination
would undoubtedly he effective were
it possible, but there are too   many
powerful producers independent of
the Amalgamated to permit that concern,   as  the   natural  nucleus,  to
gather the others into a solid concretion.    The independents can make
copper more cheaply than the Amalgamated.   There's the rub.   To depress prices would injure the Amalgamated   more than its rivals.    In
Fact, the apnarent influence at  the
moment of the lesser lights in the
copper firmament would be  to   reduce prices iu order to crowd out the
Montana mines and keep  a   bona-
fide market for their own output. It
costs   money   to   store copper; it in
said   that   syndicates have retired
more   than   nine   million   dollars'
worth within the last few   months,
deeming  it  preferable to lock up
money for a period in this tinremu-
nerative manner than to  incur the
costlier damage following the closure
of great mines and works, How long
such a strain can   be  endured   depends upon the abundance of money
at low rates.    Financial   conditions
just now peculiarly favor the policy
to which the copper producers  have
been obliged to resort.    Money goes
begging in 1'aris at I   per   cent, and
it is considered that French capital
190'  is carrying the present excess of cop-
$2,665,881 I per production.  Meanwhile the pro-

SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1909
It looks verymuch at pre-ient as if the
coming summer would prove to be the
most prosperous Grand Forks hus yet
witnessed. If all the brick blocks
that are now talked of are erected,
the wages paid out to skilled labor
will put a vast amount of money in
circulation. And when snow Hies
next full nearly every important business in the city will be housed in new
and comfortable quarters.
TALK ON COPPER
(Concluded 1'rom Page One)
can be worked more cheaply. There
probably has been no period, sare
during the months of insane speculation at the zenith of the late boom,
when copper properties were in
greater demand than at this very
time of low prices and ovirproduc
tion. A good mine, that will admit
of producing refined copper laid
down at tidewater for 8 cents, will
not need to look for a purchaser.
But the day of the 12 cent copper
mine is passing. The narrow vein,
the deep mine, are looked upon with
doubt. The copper miner today
wants ore bodies so large that he can
work them, after the manner of iron
mines, with a steam shovel or by the
caving system. The only thing that
can recommend a small vein today
is the presence of precious metals in
the ore sufficient to render the copper in large part a by-product.
Mines of the type of the Utah Copper, the Roston Consolidated, the
Nevada Consolidated, the Miami,
the Ray Consolidated, which it is
claimed can deliver electrolytic copper in New York at a cost of 8 cents
or less, or of the Cerrode Pasco in
Peru which ie credited with delivering it at 7, are the sort that the so-
cnlled trust magnates are reaching
after. The result will likely be the
development of a dominant group—
a trust. Il seems inevitable. Only
those lessir operators who can make
copper as cheaply, or more so, can
survive. The engineer who estimates the future of a mine on a cost
basis higher than 9 cents per pound
is clearly in danger of misleading
his client.

Stomach Distress
Every family here ought to keep
some Diapepsin in the house, as any
one of you may have an attack of indigestion or stomach taouble at any
time, day or night.
This harmless preparation will digest anything you eat and overcome a
sour stymach live minutes afterawds.
If your meals don't tempt you, or
what little you do eat seems to till you,
or lays like a lump of lead in your
stomach, or if you have heartburn,
that is a sign of indigestion.
Ask your pharmacist for a 50-cent
case of Pape s Diapepsin and lake one
triangle after supper tonight. There
will be no sour risings, no belching of
undigested food mixed with acid, no
stomach gas or heartburn, fullness or
heavy feeling in the stomach, nausea,
debilitating headaches, dizziness or
intestinal griping. This wili all go,
and, besides, there will be no sour
food left over in the stomach to poison
your breath with nauseous odors.
Pape's Diapepsin is a certain cure
for all stomach misery, because it will
take hold of your food and digest it
jnst the same as if your stomach
wasn't there.
Actual, prompt relief for all your
stomach misery is at your pharmacist
waiting for you.
These largo 50 cent cases contain
more than sufficient to cure a case of
dyspepsia or indigestion.

The Wuntern Canadian reading publio is made up ehielly of these classes
Persons who have lived in the West fur a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Uld Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could cater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer every special need is met
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in thu Western Provinces. In addition it has special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and

Eastern portion of the Dominion in detail, and the Orand Forks .Sun provides

[FROM THK dOLISTAN OF SATDI.]
The beggar wlinst' end is good is better off than the king whose end is
evil.
If my moral character strike thee as
improper, do not renounce thine own
good oharacser.
That soi row which is the harbinger
of joy is preferable to the joy which is
followed by sorrow.
To tell a falsehood is like a cutof a
sabre; for though the wound may
heal, the scar of it will remain.
If thou knowest that thy inclination   is reciprocal, accommodate thy
story to the temper of the hearer.
The sky enriches the earth with
rain, and tiie earth gives it dust iu return. What the vessels have that
they give.
Ask whatever thou knowest not,
for the cemdescensun of inquiring is a
guide on thy road in the excellence
of learning.
Happy proceeds his time who is enraptured with thy praise, tnnugh. likee
Jonah, he even may pass it in the
bel ly of a fish,
It is one of the laws of good breeding that you should forego un engagement, or accommodate yourseif to the
master of the entertainment.
Anything you may foresee that you
may somehow come to know, be not
hasty in questioning, lest your consequence and respectability may suffer.
Whoever is not to be brought into
the path of righteousness by the pun
ishmentof this life, shall be overtaken
with the punishment of that to  come.
How can he help himself who was
bi.rn deaf, if he cannot hear; and what
can I'e do whose thread of fortune is
dragging him on that he may not proceed.
Men of auspices fortunes would
rather take warning from the precepts
and examples of their predecessors
than that the rising generation should
take warning from their acts.
If a mun who is in the habit of
speaking truth lets a mistake escape
hiin, we can overlook it; but if he be
notorious for uttering falsehoods, and
tell the truth, thou wilt call it a lie.
A bird will not approach the grain
that is spread about, where it sees another bird a captive in a snare. Take
warning by the mischance of others,
that others may not take warning by
thine.
Were the Almighty tounsheath the
sword of his wrath, prophets and patriarchs would draw in their heads;
and were he Ut deign a glimpue of his
benevolence, it would reach the wicked along with the good.
In the day of plenty thou art proud
nnd negligent; in the time of want
full of sorrow nnd dejected; since in
prosperity ii"d adversity such is thy
condition, it were difficult to state
when thou wouldst voluntarily do thy
duty.
Whopver interrupts the conversation of others to make a display of his
fund of knowledge makes notorious
his own stock of ignorance. A prudent man "'ill not obtrude his nnswer
till hn has the question stated to him
in form.
A dog will never forget the crumb
thou gavest him, though thou mayest
afterwards throw a thousand stones at
his head; but foster with thy kindness
a low man for an age, and on the smallest provocation'he will be against thee
in arms.
The dark night of such as is beloved
of God is serene and light as the
bright day; but this good fortune results not from thine own strength of
arm till God in his mercy deign to bestow it. To whom shall I complain of
this, for there is no judge mishtier
than thine. Him whom thou direct-
est none can lead astray, and him
whom thou bewiklerest none can direct
on his way.

New Tree Planting Method
John A. Howland gives the following new method of tree planting in
tho Chicago Tribune. We reproduce
it for what it may be worth, although
we should not like to be the first to
test the innovation:
i "Tree planting revolutionizes. It is
an article of faith among fruit grow
ers that a fruit tree must be planted
in properly prepared soil, a large,
I wide, shallow hole, the roots carefully
spread out in all directions and arranged near the sui face with a slight
upward bearing at the ends.
"Small quantities of the finer soil
are first worked in among the roots,
hollow places caused by archings in
the stouter roots are filled up, the re-
