Sixth Year-No. 30
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, February 15,1907
Semi-Weekly—91.00 Per Year In Advance
Summary of Progress of the
Chief Resource of the
Province
Between   Three   and  four
Millions Dollars Paid in
Dividends in 1906
Id its last number the BritishJCo-
lumbia Mining Record says:
Mining in British Columbia is a
decidedly progressive industry, and
its growing importance and augmenting value should be more emphatically and persistently proclaimed by the newspaper press of
the province, which, as a rule, does
not give it the prominence it merits.
Similarly in official quartern its
steady expansion and consequent
weighty influence on the general in
dustrial situation do not always appear to be adequately recognized.
For instance, the minister of mines,
in his published address to the electorate of British Columbia, is, we
think, altogether too modest con
cerning it. His brief comments on
this industry and, the attitude of the
provincial government towards :t are
as follows:
"It is gratifying to know that this
important industry is in a most
nourishing condition; that in the
last few years there has been a remarkable development in particular
of the coast mines, some of which
bid fair to rival in volume and value
uf their output the richest of those
in the interior in the province.
''The government has not thought
itdesirible to make alterations in
the mining regulations, believing
that tbe interests of that industry
are best served by creating the impression that the laws affecting it
arc not likely to be changed."
Now, in our opinion, the minister
would have been justified in directing public attention to the fact' that
in the most productive placer-gold
districts—Atlin and Cariboo—financially strong companies are making
extensive preparations for the racov
ery of gold on a much larger scale
and in a manner tbat gives promise
of permanence of operations; that
i Rossland, Boundary and coast mines
are steadily increasing tbeir output
of gold aud silver in conjunction
witb copper; that the production of
silver in 1906 was larger in quantity
1 than for years previously, notwithstanding the comparative smallness
of production of this metal in the
Slocan during the year; tbat an in*
crease of nearly 7,500,000 pounds in
the amount of copper produced was
un advance over tbat of 1905 of
n 'arly 20 per ceut; that the produc-
lion of lead is being well maintained, and this without any present
,, assistance in tbe way of bounty from
the Dominion, the estimated small
decrease this year as compared with
last being attributable to the lead
s nelters owing to labor troubles at
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company's
collieries; tbat there was a larger
gross tonnage of coal mined despite
the above mentioned labor troubles,
and that the chief market for Vancouver island coal was lost to a considerable extent following the San
Francisco disaster last spring.
Further, there are the permanent
benefits wbicb may reasonably be
expected to result from the discovery
of large bodies ot pay ore down to
nearly 2000 feet depth in Rossland
mines; the substantial increase in
output of Boundary mines, with the
certainty of still further enlargement
[of production; Ihe renewal under
favorable auspices of active- mining
at Ainsworth; the great significance
of success having attended deep-
level mining in the Slocan, the
Rambler-Cariboo coinpany having
lately encountered good ore between
800 and 1000 feet depth; the improved condition in the Silverton
section of Slocan lake district; the
important recent developments at
Mount Sicker, Vancouver island,and
the addition to tbe producing mines
of tbe province of the Britannia, on
Howe sound, and the Brown-Alaska
company mine on Portland canal.
The steady expansion of coal mining operations is also worthy of note
—on Vancquver island, where the
Western Fuel company bas opened
up what is practically a new mine;
at Nicola, where two companies
are preparing to produce coal in con
siderable quantities; at Princeton,
Similkameen, and in the Crow's Nest
Pass, where, near Hpsmer, tbe C. P.
R. is developing a coal mine, and
where, in the upper Elk section, several coal properties are being systematically prospected.
In connection with the reduction
of ores, the costly modern improvements, either already made or in
hand, at tbe copper smelters in the
Boundary district ami at Trail; the
installation of new roasting and
other plant at tbe lead smelters at
Trail, Nelson and Marysville, and
tbe operation tbe greater part of the
year of the Crofton works after a
long shutdown, are all noteworthy
evidences of progress in  11)06.
Best of all, though, from the
point of view of the encouragement
of the further investment of capital
in the mining and smelting industries in British Columbia, there is
tbe fact tbat apart from the large
amouut of net profits expended in
further development and equipment
by several of the larger companies,
and the net earnings of close corporations actively engaged in mining, between $3.000,000and % 1,000,-
000 was divided among shareholders
in mining companies. Since nothing else is so convincing to prospec
tive investors, tbis distribution of
surplus net profits may well be regarded as a matter for sincere con
gratulation,

Five Divisions of the Grand

Immediately
Means   an   Expenditure of
$25,000,000- Montreal

James H. Kennedy, ohief engineer
of the V., V, ifc E., and three assistants, were in Phoenix last week digging in the snow to find the survey
stakes for the Victoria shaft spur of
the Oranby mines, which is to be
built at once by the Great Northern
company. J. W, Gallagher is expected to do the work as a subcontract jrom P. Welch k Co. and to

A representative of one of tho
largest copper interests in the country
states there is ulisolutely no foundation for the claim mude by the alleged
Northeastern Metal Dealers' association that a combination exists between
copper companies of this country and
Europe for tlm purpose of maintaining
prices and regulating the output, says
a recent issue of the Now York Commercial. He says that high prices
are due entirely to legitimate demands; thut copper companies are doing ull in their power to increase the
output, and predicts even higher
prices than now prevail. The organization of the Northeastern Metal
Dealers' association to investigate an
alleged copper trust is not taken seriously by the trade. Prominent dealers declare all they know about the
association is obtained from tho newspapers. An investigation to ascertain whether ore was being stored,
was conducted only recently. The result of the invosgution was the finding
of no stocks on hand.

Montreal, February 11.—While
there was a general belief that there
will be five distinct transcontinental
divisions of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
the matter was not actually settled
until Saturday evening, when Frank
W. Morse, general manager, announced that the Grand Trunk Pacific would soon be in the field. The
giving out of contracts for five divisions of the road means an expenditure of ''25,000,000, and probably
more, as there are several branch lines,
to be built.
One of these will be an entirely new
road of about 200 miles, which will
connect Montreal directly with the
transcontinental line. It is pointed
out by the board of trade that if Montreal does not wake up it will suffer,
and Toronto, Quebec and Winnipeg
will benefit. Quebec will be in communication through the Latuque
branch, of which 150 miles are already built, and tenders have been
called for 150 miles more. Toronto
will reach the line direct through the
Abitibi branch, which, with the extension of 40 miles, and the 200 miles
built by J. D. McArthur, will join tho
road direct. The eastern provinces
will have Monction as a terminal, so
that all Canada will be practically in
communication except Montreal.
The tonnage of the Boundary mines
for the first month of 1907 was the
smallest for many months, due to lack
of coal for steaming purposes by the
railways, preventing them from furnishing adequate coke supplies to the
district smelters. The figures for
January were:
Granby mines 34,192
B. C Copper mines 12,23d
Dominion Copper ,12,091
Snowshoe   3,830
Emma      759
Providence      150
Skylark        40
Total 83,292
At a meeting of the board of the
Canadian Pacilic Railway coinpany in
Montreal on Monday, a dividend of 2
per cent on preferred stock and 3 per
cent on common stook was declared
for the half yoar ending December 1,
payable on the 2nd of April next; and
it was also deceided that at tho same
time a further sum equal to one half
of 1 per ceut should be paid on the
common stock out of the interest on the proceeds of land sales. After the payment of working expenses,
fixed charges and tho dividend now
declared, there is a surplus for the
half year of SC,GOO,000.

FRIDAV, FEBRUARY 15,  1907
A big C. P. It. campaign sack and
mud slinging by the Tory press won
a Conservative victory in thiB province. The purse-strings have evidently been drawn, but the mud
throwing still continues. It is proba-
MA* the intention of these journals to
continue in this filthy business until
the next general elections.
Our Conservative friends need not
worry quite so much about the future
of W. W. B. Mclnnes. He is able to
make a live outside the provincial
legislature; and this is something
that some .of the successful Conservative cahdidates would have been
unable to do.
The South Dakota legislature has
passed a law making it a felony for a
man to treat a friend to a drink in a sa*
loon. This looks like legislating against
a'man spending his own money. The
members of the South Dakota legislature probably had to stand a retreat.
Another big sea disaster this week
convinces us that the cheapest thing
in this world is human life.
No "job" is impossible to the iudus-
trious legislator.

Seed Distributiou
By direction of the minister of
agriculture a distribution is being
made this season of samples of superior sorts of grain and potatoes to
Canadian farmers for the improvement of seed. The stock for disti ibu-
tion is of the very best, and has been
secured mainly from tho excellent
crops recently had at the experimental farms at Indian Head, Sask., and
Brandon, Man. The samples consist
of oats, spring wheat, bailey, Indian
corn (for ensilage only only) and potatoes. The xuantity of oats sent is 4
pounds, and of wheat or barley 5
pounds, sutlicient in each case to sow
one-twentieth of an acre. The samples of Indian corn and potatoes weigh
3 pounds each. A quantity of each of
the following vuieties has been secured
for distribution:
Outs—Hunncr, Wide Anwuke.Whito
Giant, Danish Island, Thousand Dollar, Improved Ligowo (white variety)
and Goldfinder (yellow). Black oats
aro not recommended for general cultivation, and are only sent out when
specially asked for, •
Wheat—Red Fife and White Fife
(beardless varieties), Preston, Pringle's Champlain and Huron (early
bearded sorts), Percy and Stanley
(early beardless varieties).
Barley—Six-rowed, Mensury, Odessa, Mansfield and Claude; two-rowed,
Standwell, Invincible, Canadian
Thorpe and Sidney.
Indian Corn (for ensilage)—Early
sorts, Angel of Midnight, Compton's
Early and Longfellow; later varieties,
Selected Learning, Early Mastodon
and White Cap Yollow Dent.
Potatoes—Early   varieties,    Early
White Pi'ize and Rochester Rose; me
diurr to lute varieties, Carman No. 1,
Money Maker and Late Puritan.
These Inter varieties areas a rule more
productive than, the earlier kinds
Only one sample can be sent to
each applicant, hence if an individual
receives a sample of oats he cannot
also receive one of wheat, barley. Indian corn or potatoes. Lists of names
from one individual, or applications
for more than one sample for one
household cannot be entertained.
The smnples will be sent free of charge
through the mail.
Applications should bo addressed to
the Director of Experimental Farms,
Ottawa, and may be sent in any time
before the 15th of February, after
which the lists will be closed, so that
the samples asked for may be
sent out in good time for sowing. Applicants should mention the variety
they prefer, with a secoud sort as an
alteanative. Applications will be filled
in the order in which they nre received so iong as the supply of seed
lasts. Farmers are advised to apply
early to avoid possible disappointment. Those applying for Indian corn
or pjtatoes will please bear in mind
that the corn, is not ususually distributed until March, and that potatoes
cannot be mailed from here until danger from frost in transit is over. No
postage is required on mail matter addressed to the Central Experimental
Farm, Ottawa. Wm. Saunders,

Try This for Your Cough
To relieve a cough or break up a
cold in twenty-four hours, tho following simple formula, tho ingredients of
which can be obtained of any good
prescription druggist at small cost, is
all that will be required: Virgin Oil of
Pine (Puce), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shake well and take in teaspoon-1
ful doses every four hours. The de
sired results cannot he obtained unless the ingredients are pure. It is
therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oil of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is
securely sealed in a round wooden case
which protects the Oil from exposure
to light. Around the wooden caso is
an engaged wrapper with the naine-*-
"Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. Tliere are many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
hut these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.

BOUNDARY MINING NOTES
Last week shareholders in thc
Boundary received the first dividend paid by the International Coal
ifc Coke Co., Ltd., of Coleman, Alta.
The dividend amounted to 1 per
cent on the par value of the shares,
and is nn earnest of what iii sure to
follow from now on. t The amount
thus distributed amounted to, ap
proximately, $28,000.
Last week the Dominion Copper
company's Brooklyn mine was
obliged to close again on account of
lack of coal, the C.P.R. being apparently unable to deliver the coal from
the Crow's NeBt. This is the second
closing of the Brooklyn for this reason, and it is not likely that it will
be started again until a steady supply of coal is assured.
The force at the Granby mines in
Phoenix has recently been reduced,
owing to a number of the furnaces
at the smelter in this city being out
of commission..

It Imparts Strength
Just think of the enormous strengthening power Ferrozone possesses,—
consider what it did for H. V. Potter,
well known in Kingston. "I was
subject to spells of dizziness. For
eight months I had intense pain in
my right side between the shoulders.
I was almost incurable with weakness
and lack of vigor. Often I scarcely
ate any breakfest and felt miserable
all day. Nervous, easily excited,
troubled with heart weakness, I was
in bad shape. Ferrozone restored and
nourished me back to health in short
order." Whatever your weakness
may be Ferrozone will cure. Price
50c per box at all dealers.
