R. crossing near the Kettle river,
and had received a reply stating that
the board would hold sittings in this
province in February, when complaints from British Columbia would

The council then adjourned.
Condemns Secret,ive Policy
We are daily receiving anxious
inquiries regarding the plans of the
Dominion Copper company, says
the Copper Curb anil Mining Outlook, of New York city, in referring
editorially to that coin piny in a recent issuej Up to the present time
the company has assumed a rather
secretive policy, and only tbe most
meagre details are obtainable with
reference to the company's rather
entangled affairs. We do not see
why there should be any such reticence exhibited by tbe company's
officials. If the financial condition
of tbe company is at all alarming,
the shareholders are entitled to be
advised as to the facts, and we consider that tbe officials would do well
to at once solicit the cooperation of
stockholders, if such assistance
U required. It certainly seems an
opportune time for the company to
place itself right with those who
bought the stock at $2 per share and
upwards and who still retain their
holdings. The policy of withholding from shareholders information
to which they are palpably entitled
is extremely harmful to the mining
industry, and we are surprised that
the Dominion Copper officials have
assumed an attitude or this kind.
We would certainly suggest to them
that they immediately take the
stockholders into tbeir confidhnce
and disclose to them precisely how
matters stand both .as regards the
physicial condition of the properties
and the company's financial standing. They will find by so doing
they will receive all the encourage
ment they require, both financial
and otherwise. Unless our experience has been of no avail, however,
they will discover that their entanglement will increase just so long as
they refrain from adopting an open
handed policy with those who are
probably just as intimately interested the welfare of Dominion Copper
as they themselves could possibly j
be. We have a great deal of confidence in the directorate of the company, and while we may be considered unduly presumptuous, we are
sure tbat they will find it to their
own interest and to the good of the
mining industry generally to adhere
tbe suggestions outlined above.
The Sun man was shown the blue

Maxwell Smith, Dominion fruit inspector for British Coluinhin, wbo
was chairman of the boiird of judges
at the National Apple show at Spokane, when growers from British
Columbin carried off handsome
premiums, in an interview in Spokane said that as a demonstration of
what the grent west can do in the
production of the king of fruits the
festival was a success, and as an
educational agency its value cannot
be fully estimated, adding:
"In the magnificent manner in
which the whole enterprise hns heen
brought to a succefnl issue the premiers and management hnve rendered a service to the fruit-Hrowing
industry in particular, nud the people of the whole Pacilic slope in
general, that cannot be estimated in
dollars and cents.
"Of my colleagues on the stuff of
judges I hnve formed the highest
opinion. We may not hnve been
nble to please everybody, hut that
may be the fault of the unsuccessful
exhibitors and may be remedied
next time by themselves. If any
mistakes have been made it must be
charged to an error in judgment.and
nof to lack of desire on our part to
perform our duties faithfully and
conscientiously without fear or
"I cannot too highly express my
appreciation, which was fully shared
hy the other judges, of the grent
kindness and consideration shown
us by the management of the show.
Spokane has certainly done itself
proud on every hand.
"Our exhibitors from British Columbia are all highly pleased with
their treatment and well satisfied
with their success in the competitions. The liberal display in the
decorations with the Union Jack
and the British ensign was a pleasing courtesy which your Canadian
visitors appreciated."
Work and Longevity
It is an adage which long antedates the gospel of the strenuous life
that it is better to wear out than to
rust out; and even in the care of the
brain, according to evidence lately
developed ill a lawsuit in England,
rusting nut is quicker. The addiction of idle people to paresis
and insanity is largely due to
mental stngnntion. Tho brnin,
like ony other organ, requires an
abundant supply of blood, and this
is to he had by a pretty constant
thinking. It is well known thnt
brain workers ns a class nre long
lived. One of the leading Knglish
specialists testified thnt, in his opinion, a normal brnin should never be
permitted to be unemployed exeept
during sleep, nnd that most people
sleep more than is good for them.
He stiongly recommended that every
one should have a hobby, nnd in his
spare moments pursue it seriously
and ardently, ns if for the time it
were the one real Interest in life.
There are interesting and profitable
specialties related to evciy trade,
and lacking these, one should lead
his mind to whatever attracts it,
from chess to the cosmic theory of
the universe.

DURING the next three or four
weeks Cevic elections will engross the atteutioO of the electors in
every municipality in the province.
The selection of a competent and
progressive city government is frequently of more importance to the
municipality interested than the po-
Hticul shade of the national or provincial government, as incompetence
in civic affairs has ruined the future
of many city a with bright prospects.
In Grand Forks no names hnve yet
been mentioned for either mayoralty
or aldermanic honors; but the candidates will undoubtedly make
themselves known as soon as they
have passed through the Christmas
festivities, and it will then be in order for the citizens to pick the best
material obtainable.
Hon. Frank Oliver, minister of
the interior, prior to leaving Winnipeg for Ottawa laBt.week, said that
British Columbia would next year
receive more attention from the
large American investors than in
any previous year, and his department would mnke special arrange
ments to look after this province's
The western branch of the Canadian Mining Institute will meet in
Greenwood January 14th.
A LAW providing ror bi-annual
city elections would proliab'y
be an "improvement the present
method of electing mayors and
aldermen annually; but the recommendation approved by the city
council dues not aim at this, and it
is therefore difficult to see what
good the suggested amendment to
the Municipal Clauses Act could accomplish. The change would not
lessen the cost of holding civic elections, as the advertising and preparation of the voters' lists would
Btill have to be done annually, and
there is no more labor attached lo
electing a whole council than half
a one. Those who favor the change,
argue that it would he the means of
keeping good men in office for two
yenrs. But it would also work the
other way—it would bu impossible
11 get rid of an undesirable officer in
less than two years, and we all know
that sometimes even one year is too
long a term for some ollicers. As
Tbe Sun views the mutter, it appears
to he the part of wisdom to stick lo
the one-year term as long as municipal elections nre held annually, because good ollicers e.in always here-
elected, unci it is sometimes desirable to get of rid of others in at the
end of one year.
1\HE Dominion parliament will
meet next month,"nnd it is
hoped thnt during the session time
will not he wasted in useless discus-
si, n, ns it was lust summer. The
suggestion which wns given publicity some lime ago that steps
should be taken by the govern ment
to prevent the waste of time iu the
house, and limit disenssi m un controversial subjects, hns,met with decided objection from n certain section of the Conservative press. This,
however, is not likely to cause the
government to vary from nny line of
action which it may hnw decided
upon. The | e iple of the country
will support Sir Wilfrid Laurier
should he decide to amend the rules
of the house. The tiresome harangues
of Geo. E. Foster, and the iteration
and reiteration of bis few followers,
should be stopped. The country is
heartily tired of bearing this man's
talk, and the ni inner in which he
monopolized the time of the  house

is full of comedy bits. It is comedy
that a girl or woman can laugh at and

The death of Admiral Coughlan recalls the trouble he caused by reciting
at a dinner on one of the American
warships the poem "Meinsalf—und
Gott." The poem was suid to have
been written by a ^German author,
and its recitation by an American
naval officer gave great offense to the
German nation. The matter was
amicably settled, but as a matter of
fact the poem was written by a Vancouver journalist named Gordon, and
there is a gentleman in Ladysinitli
who saw tho first manuscript copy of
