Office  on North   Main   Street.  Under date March, 10th, 1914, Mr.  Newman Erb, president of the British  Columbia Copper Co., Ltd., made his  annual report to, the shareholders in  the company. The following information, bearinp: upon the company's  activities and interests in the Similkameen is of speciiil interest to residents  in the district.  "The huge expenditure made for  Property Account and exploratory  work has thus far proven highly satisfactory iind to the date of issuance  of this report, the compnny'sengineers  report more than 5.000,000 tons of ore  reasonably assured, which is an increase of more than 1,000,000 tons  bince their estimate of February 1st,  last, with the probability of.a huge  increase as the work of exploration,  now in progress, is continued.  "The ores disclosed can be concen-  tialedandthe resulting concentrates  shipped to our. smelter, where they  would be 'most desirable in reducing  through smelting a large supply of  low-grade ores, high in lime', which by  themselves could not be. treated profi-  ably. These concentrates will contain  so high ii percentage of sulphur as to  materially reduce the expensive sulphur flux now needed to smelt other-  Boundary ores.  "To provide funds for the payment  for properties now under option, their  development, and the installation of a  proper concentrating plant, it is estimated that a total of $1,000,000, approximately, will be necessiiiy.  "In view of the prevailing financial  condition which have existed for the  past year, your Board has found it  difficult to provide the money required  and a plan was divised, indicated'in  circular letters of February 9th and  24th. which.were mailed tp_ all share-  holders, under which the necessary  money could be obtained.'.  "The quantity of ore disclosed, with  its higher metal contents, will assure  a greater stability of the company than  at any time heretofore."  PREDICTS RECORD FRUIT CROP  Hon.'

At the  time Tom Edwards was 100 feet away  getting ready to go out of the  mine.  Edwards heard only one shot go off and  in-company with another miner he returned to see  what was  the  matter.  Then a second shot went.off and  blew  out-their candles.    Relighting    their  candles they continued their search for  Jordan when the third hole exploded,  killing Edwards instantly.    Tho other  miner escaped uninjured.    It was evidently a premature explosion of the first  hole, for Jordan was found  near it so  badly injured  that he  died in  three  hours.    Jordan leaves a wife and  four  children, while Edwards has , a sister  in England.    Both men had mined  in  the Boundary for more than  a  dozen  years.     An  inquest is  being  held.���������  Greenwood Ledge.  Victoria,B. C��������� April 3.���������"Everything points ,to a tremendous fruit  crop in the interior this year, the  greatest in the history of the province," says Hon. Price Ellison, minister of Agriculture, who has just returned from a visit to the  Okanagan.  "The expectation,"' he says, "depends upon a variety of reasons. Climatic conditions have, been all that  could be desired, more a'ci-cage is being utilized and young orchards are  constantly coming to the bearing  stiige. This year, the producers will  be in a better position to reap the  reward that is justly theirs."  The principle'object' of Mr. Ellison's  trip was to stimulate-the co-operative  movement among the fruit growers!  associations. He says that in this direction the outlook'is more encouraging. As indicating the success of  the co-operative system-he says that  hist year the agency'got 00 per cent  of the produce of the Okanagan valley.  He points out that a great incentive  to co-operation in British Columbia  lies in the fact that the growers in  Oregon, Washington and California  are highly organized and that through  this means they are.iu a positition to  compete with the growers in the province despite the duty which Canada  maintains against imported fruit.  He believes that the growers of  British Columbia will never succeed  in large measure, until they surround  themselves with stock, which he regards iis the basis..of successful agii-  culture. ; ���������-  BALANCE OF SEVEN MILLIONS  Figures for Dominion Fiscal Year  Show  . a Balance on the Right Side of  Ledger Despite Financial ,  Stringency  GENERALNEWS  Gentlemen's Haircutting  IS AN ART  Every man who has his hair cut  at this place will tell his friends  Satisfaction guaranteed  Hot and Cold Baths  CANADA'S POST  OFFICE BUSINESS  HILLIARD'S BAABBR SHOP  W.T.

Estimates Given for Exterior Work  There was un increase of 319 post  offices in Canada, during the past, fiscal year, while the estimated number  of letters and postcards sent during  the fiscal-year is estimated at 73,252,-  000, or nearly 12 per cent, more than  in 1912. The expenditure during 1912-  13 was $1,710,769 larger than in the  preceeding year, but the surplus  amounted to $1,177,071.  Rural mail delivery increased in extent and volume more rapidly during  1912-13 than in any previous year.  Six hundred now routes were established, with a total of 22,250 boxes.  During the first seven months of the  present fiscal year there were added  still another 6"00 routes with a total of  23,000 boxes.  There a���������.e 80,000 nifies of '-railway in  Canada. Last year Canada equalled  the United States in railway.construction. According to its population  Canada leads the world in railways.  The Goveror-General signed the  papers last Thursday foi-the release of  twenty-two mine strikers of Nanahno,  who were sentenced several months  ago. Mr. F. P.> Sheppart of Nanaiino  and other British Columbia members,  as svell as the British Columbia Government, have lieen interesting- themselves in the matter,''and have been  urging the matter upon the federal  authorities. Hon. O. J. Doherty, Minister of Justice, went fully into the  subject and recommended to the Governor-General-, the release of the men,  whiehiwill occur as soon.as the papers  reach New Westminster. 1 he fines of  the strikers of $100 each will be remitted.  The Grand Trunk railway authorities  announced today that this summer  8,000 acres of hind would be opened up  by the road in British Columbia for  settlers.  An Indiana maivwho recently came  into ti. fortune of $7,000,000 advertised for five friends to help him spend  it. The names of those who are willing  to assist a fool in separating himself  from his money are legion and thousands have already volunteered to furnish first aid to the  cheerful  spender.  Ottawa, April 4.���������The financial statement for the Dominion fiscal year ending March 31st, 1911, was issued today  by the finance department. The toc.-il  revenue for the year was $1G0.48S,538,  as computed with $105,528,137 for hist  year, a decrease of about five million  dollars.  The total expenditure on consolidated  fund Wiis $102,221,133, as compared  with $95,025,013 hist year an increase  of six and a half millions.  The expenditure ou,,capital account  was $51,233,181 as compared with $2S,-  758,456. The increase in capital ex-  pendituie on public works was about  nine millions, but railway subsidies  jumped from a little under five millions  in 191-2-13 lo nineteen millions in 1913-  1-1.  Despite the financial stringency and  business depression the showing for the  year is regarded as exceedingly creditable.  The total expenditure on consolidated and capital account was some one  hundred and fifty-three millions," leaving a balance on the right side of the  ledger of seven million dollars.  The decrease in the revenue is entirely due to falling off in customs duties, which dropped from $112,533.52S  in 1912-13 to $103,S58,432 for the year  which has just closed.  Excise revenue showed a slight increase. The postiil revenue increased  nearly u ' million dollais, while there  was also increase in the ralwavs and  .canals'and public works departments  of half a million dollars.  Miscellaneous  revenue showed an increase ofcwo.mil-  \ ...  lion dollars.  The nation debt on March Slststoodal  ac^$3T4,ul0,28Slris compared with $297,-  488,095 on March 31st, 1913. The'increase is seventeen and a half millions.  This is twenty-five million dollars  less than when the Borden goverment  took office in 191.1, when the net debfc  stood at $310,000,000.  THE CLEMENT CASE  Judgement   Handed  Down   at   Ottawa  Reverses Decision of Exchequer  Court  MINING NOTES  ROD AND GUN FOR APRIL  At Baltimore a successful operation  has been performed in grafting the  cornea of a pig's eye to a child's eyeball. The cornea of a pig's eye was  used because it is said it more closely  resembles the human corneathan that  of any other animal.  Rod and Gun  for April is  out  with  a bill of fare designed  primarily unfile fisherman.    The cover cut,   which  this month is specially .attractive,   depicts a fisherman  holding up  to  view  ii   17 lb.  prize salmon  trout  secured  last year in Algonquin Park.    Bonny-  castle Dale contributes the leading article "Halibut Fishing in the Northern  Pacific"; H.  Mortimer Batten  a  well  illustrated article on "Trout Farming";  and other stories  and  articles  follow  that describe fishing experiences  etc.  in various parts of the Dominion from  Atlantic    to   Pacific.    Prof.    Edward  Prince, Dominion Commission of Fisheries and an authority on  both fish  and game, writes of "The Prong Horned Antelope of the  West",   which is  said to be in danger of extinction  unless immediate protective measures are  adopted for   its    preservation.     The  regular departments are all well maintained.  Under the heading of "Prospecting  Operations on Properties Under Bond"  the. General .'Manager of the British  Columbia Copper Co., Ltd., in his annul report (for the year 1913) made, the  following reference to mining property situated in the Similkameen dis-  tiict: "Copper Mountain: No work  'was done in Voigt's 'Camp, but operations ..were concentrated at Princess  Camp, nearer the summit of Copper  Mountain. Mention of these 'claims  was inside in last year's report. Aggressive prospecting by diamond-drilling, tienching pits.and shafts, and  driving tunnels, was ' carried on during the entire, year. Our engineers  report extensive areas of mineralized  ground.. The tonnage of reasonably  assured and probable ore is given as  4,000,000 tons for one group of claims,  with un average of 1.87 per cent, copper and value in gold and silver  ranging from 25 to 50 cents a ton. On  another group the tonnage thus far  outlined is 550,000 tons with an average assay of 1.35 per cent, copper antl  35 cents a ton in gold and silver. Diamond-drilling operations indicate the  presence of other cue bodies. These are  being prospected at present. The plan  is to concentrate these ores on the  ground, and ship the resulting product to the smelter .-it Greenwood.  Tests have indicated that a successful  extraction may be made with one of  the several flotation processes that  have recently been perfected."  Ch.'irles Council of Rossland has  bonded a number of claims in Summit  camp to Colonel Stevenson of Chilli-  w.-ick, who has grouped them with  several other properties, and in turn  has bonded to a syndicate for a million dollars. There are 13 claims included under option, and they arc  well developed. The chief drawback so  fiir has been the lack of railway facilities. Railways, however, arc now in  sight as the Kettle Valley Co. is now  completing its Hope mountain section  to Ottor Summit, the lines running  close to these mines.  Judgment was handed down, last  week by the supreme court of'Canada  iit Ottawa in the appeal brought by  Mr. Justice Clement from the decision  of Mr. Justice Cassels lendeied in the  suit of the King vs. 'Clement, whereby  the defendedt was ordeied that certain  sums of money received by,him for  per diem allowances under the judges'  act should be refunded. The trial  judge also found fraud on the part of  the defendant. From this judgment  Mr. Justice Clement appealed to the  supreme court of Canada, who unanimously ieversed the finding of Mr.  Justice Cassels on the question of  fraud.  ,. Mr. .Justice Duff, Anglin and Bro-  deur expressively and emphuticully  finil Lli.it there was no fraud on the  part of Mr. Justice Clement in the in-  leiprctation which he placed on the  judges' act in reference to per diem  allowances to judges under'the act.  Mr. Justice Brodeur- agrees with Mr.  Justica Clement both on the question  of absence of fraud and his right to  the allowances claimed. Mr. Justice  fdington held that the pronouncement of Judge Cassels on the question  of fraud was merely .-in expression of  opinion not necessary to the decision  of the ease. Mr. Justice Anglin was  of the opinion that the charge of fraud  having' failed, that Judge Clement  should be relieved of costs in the  court below as well as in the supreme  court, the practice being in un'action  where fraud has been charged and not  proven, us in this case, that costs aie  not awarded. "    '  The result of this finding is .that  the good faith'and bona fide of Mr.  Justice Clement if fullv vindicated,  and the finding"'of fraud reversed  without dissent. The,.majority-of'-the : ���������  court agree with the view of Mr. Justice Cassels on the interpretation  placed by him on the judges act, although Mr'."Justice Brodeur dissents  in this particular, holding that Mr.  Justice 'Clement's view, of the .law was  the  correct one.  In the result the appeal is dismissed  without costs.  .Mr. Justice Clement, who since the  judgement of Mr. Justice Cassels lias  taken no part in judical work, will resume his duties .-il once.  An upraise in the Jewel mine at  Greenwood has located a vein of very  rich ore. Specimens of ore are common that are rich enough to make  handsome charms for a watchfob.  ' In the superior court in Spokane it  was decided recently that a broken  neck entitles a man to $10,000, while a  man's' life is only worth $7,000.  METEOROLOGICAL.

"adian Mining Institute, a-very important address w.-is that,of-the chairman, W. J. Sutton, 'who  spoke   very  :"comprehensively iind'in an pptiinistic  vein on   mining  in   British  Columbia  ���������   -"and.its'future prospects.    He said:  : "As is well known, British Columbia possesses large ;md -varied '-mineral resources. The minerals mined in  the province on u'commeicial scale are  gold, silver, copper, zinc, coal and  building stone and other structural  materials.    Some  of   these    minerals  occur iu immense  quantities,  so   that  ��������� the latent possibilities of the. mining  industry of the province are very  great.  "British Columbia's favorable position iis part of  the great Cordilleran  ��������� belt, in'regard to its mineral resources  is given  prominence in   Geology and  Economic Miners of Canada,  published by the geological survey branch  of  the  Canadian  department of   mines.  The Cordilleran belt in South America,  in Mexico and in the Western  United  Stiites  is  recognized   as  one    of the  greatest mining regions in   the world,  noted  principally   for  its   wealth  in  gold, copper and lead.    The  Cordilleras stand unparalleled in the world for  continuity, extent and variety of their  mineral   resources.    In    Canada   and  Alaska this belt maintains itsv reputation although for the greater part un-  prospected.   In Canada it has a length  of 1,300 and a width  of 400 miles.    It  is pre-eminently  a great  mining region.  "Not only is  the  Cordilleran   belt  rich in metal but it has  enormous resources  of coal  of excellent quality,  varying from lignites to  anthracite,  which   is     conveniently   distributed.  The prospective resources of this  belt  in Canada may, therefore, be  considered  enormous.    Though   mostly un-  prospected,   it  has    been    proved   to  possess the greatest coal fields, one of  the greatest-copper  mines, one of  the  greatest silver-lead mines, and two of  the    greatest   placer-gold   camps   in  Western America,   which is a  region  noted  for its extraordinary   mineral  wealth.    In    Canada   the  region   includes all of British Columbia, part of  Western   Alberta,   the  whole of   the  Yukon territory and a large   tract of  the adjacent Western portion  of  the  Northwestern territories���������an  area, in  all,   of approximately 000,000 square  miles."���������-Greenwood Ledge.  Mr. Watson Griffin, special Canadian  trade commissioner, .-it present investigating conditions in the -West Indies, submits the following summary  of an interview with a prominent Barbados merchant: "There has been  much discussion recently as to whether the United States system of carrying on business through export commission houses iu New York or the  Canadian system of direct business  relations is the best method.. I know  that a number of tlie largest United  Stiites flour manufacturers, that have  sold in the West Indies through New  York Commission houses for'., many  years have recently changed their  method of selling and now have established -agencies, in the YVest Indies,  selling direct to West-'India merchants  on commission. I believe that this  change, of method is due largely to the  fact that Canadian .'manufacturers,  who deal directly with the "West India  iiicicliiints through local' representatives, were iiipidly taking- the business  away from Now York commission  merchants.  SALliS  OI'   FLOU1-  The increased Canadian .sales of flour  are-; chiefly clue to the preferential  tariff, lint even before the preference"  was arranged the -Canadian- millers  dealing direct through-, West .Indian  agencies had made considerable headway.'!.know that in one ease an'agent  who has been pushing direct sales of  Canadian flour in the West Indies was  offered aguai-inlci: of seven thousand  'dollars, per year' by a United States  flour., company' if he would abandon  his Canadian business and devote his  whole "''attention to selling United  States flour. He declined the offer,  believing that under the preferential  tariff Canadian business would greatly  expand in the near future."  Ill NTS "'���������'OK. CANADIAN   HXPOUTERS  ���������A.'leading commission merchant of  Trinidad, referring to Canadian business, said : "It'-has been'the custom,  unless otherwise instructed, for English and United Stales shippers to insure shipments, charging the rate, usually 1^%.,'in the invoice against the  purchaser, and if contrary instructions  arc not given it would be -Advisable fertile Canadian shipper to follow this  plan, for, as the West Indian merchant  is used to this being done, he might  not have- his goods protected, and if-  loss occurred friction might arise as to  who was responsible for the loss.  "It  would   facilitate   business if the  Canadian   manufacturer  would make  his  quotations  either c.i.f.. Trinidad,  that  is iit  pi-ices  which   would cover  cost,   insurance and  freight on goods  delivered iit the purchaser's port, or at  'f.o.b.   price,   that   is   free   on   board  steamer at point of ocean  shipment.  I have  known instances  where Canadian   manufacturers  in quoting f.o.b.  claimed that they meant their quotation to be f.o.b. cars.  They have probably acted in good faith, but the result  has  been  misleading to the parties at  this end, as we are ill ways accustomed  by the  term f.o.b. to understand that  it means   f.o.b.  steamer  fit point of  shipment.    Of course, it should be understood  that  f.o.b.   also'means  that  there  is no  charge for  the  packages  unless  it   has   been   specially agreed  upon,  except in the of molasses and  such  other goods   as   would   require  speciiil packages."

His clothes were  faultless in cut and texture. His collars and shoes were always indisputably correct. He seemed broad, genial, prosperity incarnate. The sniili  on his large, rather homely feature!,  was particularly winning-. lie was  always smiling. He smiled now sis lie  stood before the girl, even though he  was vaguely aware of some Impending  'calamity.  "How could you?" Miss'Train was  saying in injured protest. "Oh, how  could yon?"  "How could I what, Amy?" Jarvis  asked. * ���������   - ��������� .-. '  "How could yon sleep as you did  last evening when ������-I was trembling���������  simply trembling���������under the spell of  that voice?"  "Did I?" he said doubtfully.    "Oh,  come now, Amy, that was impossible."  "Nevertheless you did," she answered.   "It was sacrilege."  "Look here," he said, "I'm sure you  must be mistaken. I'll admit I might  doze intermittently at 'Aida' or 'Tra-  viata' or 'Faust,' but at 'Tannhauser'  never. I'm wide awake when Wagner  is on the boards."  She glanced up hopefully. Had he  really some canons- of art, after all?  There was undoubted sincerity in his  tones. Perhaps this harsh judgment  of him which she was aware had been  formulating jlself in her mind the past  year was unjust to him. Perhaps, hidden behind that noncommittal smile,  was a reverence for things artistic  which his outward appearance successfully masked. But these thoughts  were rudely quashed by his next remark.  "Sleep during 'Tannhauser?'" he  laughed. "Absurd, Amy! Who on  earth could sleep in such a tin shop  racket as that?"  The ghi-winced. "Arthur!" she said  in shocked remonstrance.  He moved in his chair uneasily.  "There I go again!" he said. "Forgive rue. Really, I didn't mean to  shock you, but I'm so brutally practical, you know."  "That's. just it," said the girl, "so  brutally practical.   I wanted to see you  SELLING GOOD COWS CHEAP  The following is a sample of what is  discovered by the simple weighing of  milk and testing of samples. A four  year old cow gave in one month 020  pounds of milk containing 35 pounds  of fat. In the same herd a five year  old gave only 330 pounds of milk and  79 pounds of fat. Thus the first cow  gave more than double the quantity  of the latter.  This further fact is interesting:  this particular cow was sold by a man  absolutely ignorant of hei value  or dairy capacity. The present owner,  through leeping individual records,  knows her better and would not sell  her for less than thirty dollars more  than he paid for her. -_.  Another fact is worth careful attention; the total of the herd yield for  ii day or a month will never reveal  these good individuals. VVhattheown-  ur needs to know for certain is obtained only from a record of each cow he  keeps. You can save labour and good  feed by bestowing them on cows that  you know are worth keeping; you will  then he in a position to keep your  best cows, and will not lose money by  selling good cows cheap.  "TOU!    DIDN'T YOU SAIL TODAY?"  this afternoon to talk a bout that very  thing.     I���������I   don't  know  just  how  to  make you understand if, but I'm afraid  we   won't   be   at   ail   happy   together.  We're  so   very   different���������so   very   far  apart."  Tho smile left his face momentarily.  "Vou don't me.iu"��������� lie hegau.  "Vos," sue said   very  low.    "I  don't  think we are suileil to each other. Arthur."  It took him some time to grasp the  l'nil import of her words. Then the  siuile i-ai'.io back, but it was a very artificial smile.  "ivi-haps you are right," he said,  with a huskinc.'.-!- in his big voice.  "Perhaps you v.-uuldn't he happy with  n commonplace sort of chap like me.  And your happiness, Amy. is the first  and only thing that is worthy ol' my  thoughts. You might see how a inonLli  without uie might work anyway.

She tried lo believe a tear that  plashed on lo tho paper did not alter  her ,-ittilinle toward .Inrvis. h:n. she  was (listincllv dismal nil the ufrei-nnoii.  And the worst of it was I couldn't  catch even the suspicion of a hi ugh in  her voice. She was serious as'a judge  pronouncing n death sentence, anil, by  Jove, that's just about'how it sounded  to me.  "AYhy," I gasped, "did you hear what  he said? He called us spoons���������'you  two spoons,' mind you!"  "Well," sniffed Phyllis, "he's only repeating what every one else at the hotel has been saying for tho last week.  All the difference is that he's not afraid  to say it to our faces."  Phyllis looked straight ahead of her  mid held her chin very high���������the dearest, straightest, squarest little chin.  There's no nonsense about Phyllis'  chin. It's the most honest chin on  earth, I think.  "But, dear," I protested, ������T don't  want people to say that."  The second word slipped out without  either of us noticing it. But Phyllis  did not seem to be satisfied. She turned  her head the other way. Hang it all,  anyway; handling a boat handicaps a  fellow.  "I don't care about myself, you know,  Phyllis, but I don't want them to say  that about you. You see, a man's different. You're a girl, and it cuts more  odds."  Phyllis turned her head ever so  slightly.  "And besides," I went on, "we never  did, anyway."  "Merely a lack of proper encouragement, doubtless," said Phyllis icily.  "Not altogether," I objected. "Sometimes a fellow"��������� -  "Doesn't want to," she finished for  me.   "I see."  There was no help for it. I simply  had to. I turned the bow up into the  wind and let the sail flap whichever  way it wanted. <��������� Sitting behind her, I  reached around and took her hands.  "Phyllis," I whispered soberly, "it  isn't that. You know as well as I do it  Isn't that."  Phyllis didn't answer. I thought I  detected a sob, but I couldn't see her  face. She kept it the other way. When  I got her head back on my shoulder  her eyelashes were a bit wet.  "The hair had the nerve," said I.  "The hair was not bred a gentleman."  ������������������"Breeding has its disadvantages," 1  returned gloomily.  '���������Encouragement is intended to offset  thorn."  "Yes." said I, "but I have had none."  Phyllis' lips, luscious as. the ripest  cherry, hung temptingly near. I hesitated and lost. Phyllis buried her face  on my coat, ami somehow her arm half  crept across my shoulder. I thought I  heard her whisper something.  "What is it?" I interrupted, bending  over to catch tho answer.  And then she repeated it.  '���������r  said there were different  kinds.  Jack." murmured the little rogue.
