HAS GOOD WORD FOR APEX  M.  K.   Rodgers   Expresses   Favorable  Opinion of Its Chances.  c.  If there is any man whose opinion  should carry weight concerning the  merits of any property in this camp,  it is M. K. Rodgers, whose unfailing  instinct for ore-finding andcold-blood-  ed readiness to turn down anything  that didn't meet his requirements, has  been well known' over a period of  eleven, years.  To him belongs the credit, with the  help of his principals' capital, of  changing this camp from a camp of  mere prospects into a. producing carup  with millions of bullion, output,to its  credit. ���������    .     '  '  It was after spending years tramp  ing the country in the employ of the  late Marcus Daly and sampling and  examining properties wherever he  could find anything that he considered  worth'examining, all'tlie way from  Alaska to Mexico and stretching  hundreds of miles-into-the interior  that,he spotted out the Nickel Plate  in this camp, and was satisfied to look  no fnrther, hut settle down to make a  big mine put of his find, and he did it.  Of, course it is true that one other  property, during that time also took  his fancy. : This., was the famous  Greene-Cananea in Mexico1. ' that  Rodgers took a bond, on. for his  principals and started in to proye up,  hilt was ordered ��������� by them.to throw it'  up just when he was on the threshold  of success. Others who got hold of it  later on amassed wealth therefioni.  During the development stage of the  Nickel Plate M. K. Rodgers was untiring in his labor of figuring  out the  RICH   WITHOUT   KNOWING   IT.  Woman   Kept   Bell   Telephone   Stock  Worth Over Million for 27 years,.  Thinking It was Worthless.  GOLDEN ZONE IMPROVES  field geology of the district for miles  around the Nickel Plate. All this  period he was in close touch with the  prospectors and carried options on  many of their claims, sometimes biding them and at other times throwing  them up for reasons best known to  himself. These various negotiations  <is might be expected made, him a few  bitter enemies here and there, but  even the bitterest of them will to-day  bank' on his knowledge of a property.  Last week in conversation with Mr.  Rodgers for a short time the Gazette  asked his opinion of the Apex. His  reply'was. "It isa very likely property ;  San Francisco, April 28. ��������� Sixty  shares of stock of the Bell Telephone  company, purchased in 1882, have  been brought to light in this city, and  the purchaser, a woman, who invested  $1500, is expected to be in a position  to dispose of her property for $1,750,-  000, which sum she must divide with  the agent,of a commercial company,  wlio located the valuable security after it had reposed in a trunk regarded  to be worthless paper. for a period of  27 years.  Through an interview with W." D.  Harding, fiscal agent .of the, United  Wireless company, last night,, it became known,that the stock in question  was placed'in escrow six weeks ago,  and .that-the beneficiaries, under an  agreement recently drawn, were awaiting an offer that entitles each party  to participation in an equal division  of $1,750,000, which is believed to represent the market price of the long-  forgotten stock and accumulated dividends.  At the time of her marriage the  owner of sixty shares of Bell Telephone was advised by her husband  that she had purchased a lot of worthless securities, and deferring to his advice, ,she buried the stock.certificates  in a trunk..Recently, according to the  story made public last night, the owner of the stock was approached by the  agent of a wireless telegraph company,  who asked her to purchase stock in  his company.  "I don't believe in these telephone  or telepraph companies," said the  woman. "I once bought stock'in the  Bell Telephone company, and I have  never been able, to sell the stock." The  information acquired, in this manner  was at length-taken to Mr. Harding,  who,prpmptly realized its value. He  ascertained that the. woman, had purchased the stock at a total outlay of  $25 per share, or $1500 for .the sixty  shares, and, later made her an offer  to divide with her all profits arising  through the sale of the. stock.  Finest Ore Ever Seen on  Property Now  'Coming Out of Bottom of Shaft.  STEADILY GOING UP  United Wireless Stock Had $5.00 Advance on May 1st.���������Progress of  Company Would Warrant  Higher Price.  L. H. Patten, secretary of the  Golden Zone, was up at the mine on  Sunday and brought down a lot of  samples of the ore now coining out of  the bottom of the shaft.  This ore is certainly the finest taken  from the property. It is a mass of  fine grained sulphides���������mispickel predominating���������and cemented together  with little irregular shaped kernels of  dark blue lively looking quartz���������the  ideal vein filling of the genuine true  fissure.  As the.depth.of .100 feet has been  practically/attained, work will begin  cutting out a station to get ready for  drifting 'at' this level. The ore is ad-  miied'by all miners and prospector.-  who have seen it at the Company's  office in Hedley.  Among the callers at the Company's  office -last week was M. K. Rodgers,  who was particularly well pleased  with the appearance of the ore. He  could not be said to be surprised, for  he was always favorably impressed  with the Golden Zone. Had he seen  the ore which was' brought down on  Sunday he would have . been still  further impressed with the outlook.  If the drifts at the 100 ft level serves  to show up a body of the ore that they  have been getting they have stuff  that- would stand hauling to Hedley  hy_ wagon and shipping by rail, to say  nothing, of the profits to he made by  milling the ore on the property and  shipping the concentrates.  BURRELL ON   G. T. P. LOAN.  Thinks Violation of Contract by G. T. P.  Would Justify .Government .Taking  Over the Road  THE MAY ROD AND GUN  Office, Greenhouses and Seedliouse:  3010 Westminster Road,  VANCOUVER,   -   B. 6.  there should be a good chance to get a  mine there." The Gazette next inquired of'him concerning the company  and found that he was favorably impressed in that respect also. He believed that those who were handling  the financial end in the east were  good people, could command money  and would do bona fide work.  These  assurances   are   most  gratifying for they cover the whole field.  No   matter   how   good the property  may be,  if the company are no good,  investors  in  the  concern will  be up  against it;  and no  matter how good  the company maybe,  if the property  is at fault everybody is up against it.  We here,  didn't require so much the  assurance   as   to   the   merits   of   the  property although we are gratified to  hear it from so competent an authority as Mr. Rodgers, but we are particularly   gratified   to   know   that   the  company is likely to come up to  our  expectations   as  well,   and   that the  property will get a fair show to make  a mine.     The e-ssentials are (1) The  property.     (2) The Company.    (3) The  management,  although this is practically included  in   the  second.    If all  three are right there is nothing to fear  from the outcome.  ���������?

Stevens, of  Hughton, Michigan, is at hand. It is  an octavo volume of 1,500 pages,, in  brevier type, but by slight increases in  the width and height of the printed  matter on each page, together with a  reduction in the leading, but without  using a smaller face of type, each page  carries one-third more matter than  formerly, and the new edition, with  only .1,500 pages, contains one-half  more matter than the preceding edition, which had 1,22S pages.  Continued on Page Four.  Variety is the dominating feature  of the May number of Rod and Gun  in Canada, published by W.J.Taylor, Woodstock, 6nt. In accord with  the season there are some good fishing stories, while hunting receives  such a full. share of attention that  moose, deer, bear, weilyes and wild  geese all have particular stories given  up to them.. Two fine exploration  papers���������ah illustrated review of Mr.  Tyrrel's boeik, "Through the sub-  Arctics of Canada," and one by Mr.  Dickson describing a personal trip  through Northern Ontario���������give us  some little idea of how much remains  to.be done in exploration work in  Canada. Mr. Clapham has another  fine dog article, "The Beagle for  Sport," which all dog-lovers will peruse with interest. The decision of the  Ontario Government to have licensed  guides is noted and the Order-in-  Council dealing with the matter  printed in full. Mr. Cy. Warman's  paper on Wild Life appeals to every  lover of the outdoors and cannot  fail to have some effect in the direction the author wishes. This number  completes the tenth volume and attention is drawn to the work of the  magazine in Forest, Pish and Game  Protection and the manner in which  the movement in its favor has spread  throughout Canada. The position  achieved by the magazine is dweit  upon with pride and credit given to  all those who have assisted Canada's  sporting magazine to reach its present high position. If future numbers  are as good as this birthday issue���������  and we are assured that not only will  the high standing be kept up, but  efforts made to improve upon it���������  there can he no doubt at all as to the  future of Rod and Gun. The magazine  has now secureel for itself a position  not easily to be shaken.  Ottawa, April 29.���������The chief feature  of to-day's debate on the G. T. P. loan  was the speech of Mr. Burrell (Yale-  Cariboo) who ' criticised   the Government's' policy regarding the road.'  He  pointed   out that the   Conservative  party  throughout    the,'    Dominion  wanted the line completed,  but at a  more reasonable cost.   He took  issue  . with   Sir   Wilfrid Laurier that   the  country had ratified the project twice:  In 190-i-the contract had been made,  and the electors were asked, hot to repudiate it.   This   was successful,  but  in  1908, so far as   British Columbia  was concerned,  the electors went   on  the principle of ''once bit twice shy,"  and had sent a Conservative majority  from the province.   Mr. Burrell advo-  cated the Grvernment taking- over the  road, as   the   G. T. P.   company  had  violated the most sacred clauses of the  contract.   The road had to  be built,  and it was no. use dallying   with  construction in a childish way at immense  cost to the country.  THE INTOLERABLE DELAY  The revenue of the .Dominion shows  a falling off for the fiscal year of $11,-  (���������500,000. Hon. W. S. Fielding, however, will announce a small surplus.  The SiriuTkameen Star in referring  to the delay in railway building up  the Similkameen has the following  timely, pointed remarks :  Whatever the. cause of delay may be  in   completing   the   V.,  V.   & E.   to  Princeton,   it   is  certain  that public  sentiment is gaining ground in favor  of a real,   instead  of a  fictitious time  limit    to   construction    of   railways,  Charters, as they are now framed, are  very   plastic   documents,    possessing  qualities of stretching and sidestepping  quite beyond reason.  On the strength  of   public ��������� utterances   made   by high  officials of the Great Northern, investors   and business men   were led to  believe   that   the    lailway  would be  completed to  this  point by May 1st.  During   the    elections    last   fall   the  General Manager, of the GreatNorthern  definitely stated that the track would  be laid  to  Princeton  by  early May.  By the  terms  of the charter  the V.,  V, & E.   should  be  complete-el   to  the  coast  by 1910.    As a  matter  of fact  May   is   hero   and   the railway  over  forty miles distant  with  not a spike,  driven   nor  a   track   layer   on    the  horizon.    The  year 1909 will  soon be  half spent, making it utterly  impossible   to reach  the  coast on  charter  time; in fact,  pushed ever se>  hard,  through trains to the coast could not  be  On the afternoon of April 29th, the  local representative of United Wireless received notice by telegram of an  advance of the stock on May 1st to $30  per share. It has been selling at $25  from Feb. 15. Usually about ten days'  or more of notice is given when an increase is to take effect, but this time  it came sudden.  A little review of the situation from  a local standpoint is apropos at this  juncture. Only five months ago a  good deal of the stock was placed in  Hedley at $20 per share. It is now  $30, which means a gain of 50 per cent  for all who purchased at that time.  For those who purchased earlier the  gain is still greater.  But the feature which should weigh  most with the public is the fact that  the price of the stock has not been increased as rapidly as the progress of  the company would warrant.  After all, the true basis of the price  of any industrial stock is the net earnings of the company, and  as the net  earnings increase so should  the price ���������  of stock increase in proportion.   Now  what has been  the rate of increase in  the net earnings of United Wireless ?  In eight months of 1908 they increased  300- per cent.     The net earnings  of  November    were -18   per   cent  over  October; of  December  'Si  per   cent-  over November; of  January 28  per  cent over December,  and for a. period  of 15 months it will average up a trifle  over 25 per cent  increase, month, by  month.    Now let those of our readers  who like to figure things out for themselves   just   take   this for data,  and  work out the little sum for themselves  The stock five months ago was $20 per-  share; the net earnings increased 25  per cent per month; what should the  price of stock be to-day ? The' shortest  way to do it is to raise l.-jr to   the fifth  power   and    multiply    by   20.     This  worked out will give you   $61.03.     So  that the man who gets the stock today  for $30.00 pei' sheire makes a far better-  buy'.than  those   who bought it five  months ago at $20.00.  Some may ask  what is the reason  then that when the net earniugs would  warrant placing the stock at over $60  per share,  to-day it is only selling at  $30?   There is just one reason���������they  need the money and don't  want to  check the sale of stock by putting it  out of the reach of the wage-earning  classes  too soon.    In one way they  don't need the money half as badly as  they did a year ago, because  they are  earning so much more; and in another  way they need it far worse, for the demand    for    extension   is   so   much  greater and additional factory capacity has all the time to be provided in  order to keep the supply up with the  demand that stock sales continue to be  necessary. Last October a new factory  built at Seattle with a capacity of six  complete sets per month was deemed  sufficient for the wants of the western  coast.    In  February it was necessary  to provide   capacity   for the  manufacture of 30 sets per meinth,  and npw  they   have   to   make   it for 55  sets.  Their  eastern  factories   have   much  greater capacity,   but have to be enlarged constantly.  One of these days it may happen  that the funds tei take care of all extension requirements maybe available  from another source and then those  who have been delaying will find  themselves out in the cold so far as  sharing in the success of United Wireless Telegraph is concerned.  DAYLIGHT  BILL NEARER  Special Comiteee Reports It Favorably  to the House.  running before 1912.  OTTAWA, April 26.���������The daylight  saving bill was passed this morning  by the special committee dealing with  it and reported favorably to the house.  Whether it gets through this session,  heiwever is doubtful.  The act, which does-not applv to the  Yukon Territory, now provie'ies that  from 2 o'clock a. m. on the first Sunday of April till 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November of next year, the-  time shall be one heuir in advance of  the ordinary standard time now in use  and shall be standard time. Il is intended to come into force in 1910.  Nineteen boards of trade have concurred in the proposal, while seven  municipalities protest against the innovation.

Canada and  the United States.   .The.French  treaty   t-ipiioars. ' to   have  been  distasteful  to   Uncle  Sam. and  thejy   now   bluntly   state    that  they- intend   to   make  Canada  give as favorable terms to them  as she  gave  to France or she  will be punished  by being put  on  the  "less  favored, nations"  list    and    have    to    pay    the  maximum rate   in  every  case  provided for in the Payne bill.  From   1864   until   about   1S9S  Canada  did all in her power to  placate the United States in the  matter of tariff relations,  only  to  meet rebuff at every  overture   made,  until    finally    her  dignity     demanded     complete  abandonment   of   the   role   of  suppliant,  and   since then Canada has made  no further overture,  but has looked to extending her trade in other directi ons.  Within the past four years or  so it litis begun to dawn on certain   business  interests  in   the  United States  that closer trade  relations   with    Canada    were  desirable   and   they    evidently  expected that  on   the  first intimation of such desire on their  part  Canadians,  male  and  female, would beg into turn handsprings   in   the  exuberance  of  their joy  at   the   prospect   of  reciprocity at last;  but in this  they  appear to  have  been disappointed.    Canada has had to  hoe her own row in the matter  of   customs   regulations    with  other countries and has made a  very fair success of it  notwithstanding   tlie fact that  for the  greater  part of  the  time since  1878 she   has  had a  tariff wall  put   up   against    her   by    the  United    States   that   in  many  places was   as   high   as   05   per  cent.      Certain    of    the    more  brazen journals in   the  United  States   called for   the high wall  and -brutally intimated that  by  it they would beat Canada into  submission,      but     it     doesn't  appear to have had   that effect.  The Ov T./P. loan 'befove'-'. the  Dominion House has been run-  n irig the igauntiet ,-of . criticism.  The opposition insist upon considering a loan as something  that is to be paid back'and for  which ample securitj^ shoul&.be  demanded; but apparently the  arrangements .between the  government arid the G. T. P.  had been of so free-and-easy a.  character as to dispense with  these little requirements.  NOTICE  NOTICE is hereby given that, thirty'days  afterdate, 1, A. D.

Men who  have to put in months of enforced idleness during the winter season with no earnings  coming in, and the cost of living  being taken out of their savings  generally want to get on the  pay list again as soon as spring  opens. Yet the lake shipping  has been tied up for several  weeks because of a strike  among the boat hands. Unfortunately it is not the strikers  alone that are made to suffer  from this but employees in allied trades who have no grievance with their employers are  also kept off the pay list for a  further period, while the season,  all too short at best is fast slipping away.

May Work With  Back Action  " Is the V: V. <fc IS. railway, the British Columbia end of the Gieat Northern railway, proceeding with the  construction of its branch line fieini  the-head of False creek to .Burrard-in-  let without pi-qper authority'?     " "3  This startling question was brought  -up and on the.face pf it 4 the-assertion  that the' fail Way's authority'to build  this line has expired, caused something of a commotion.  The.authority of the Railway Commission of .Canada to the V. \V. & Y.  Railway company to build a, branch  line from the head of False creek to  Burraid inle.t!was erantedmi-Oct. 13.  1906'. " The-railway-act provides ..that  in the case of all branch lines, which  ��������� ar,e.under six miles in length, the a'u-  thority to' build ��������� shall 'onIy"'cdvcr'*a  period of two years' and at the expiration of that time the branch authorized shall be .completed and in operation..' The plans of the V., W. & Y.,  railway for this branch from the head  of False creek to the inlet were approved by the railway commission,-'  and "Under the authority ld~.build.the*  road should have been in operation  on Oct. 13th, 1908.

The wind this spring has been so un-  certain and freaky that at times it is  alarming, especially in sections- of the  valley where there has been very little  .of it in the past,   as  at Hedley.    Possibly  the chopping down of clumps of  timber here and   there has tended to  change the air currents:  but the most  disquieting featuie is that the tall firs-  left standing  here and there over the  townsite don't seem able to tesist the  violence   of  some of the gusts  that  occasionally pome along.     They grew  up when  the flat at the mouth of the  canyon which forms the townsite was  thickly covered with  other trees as  tall as themselves and hence have not  the strength at  root   which   a tree  that grows up in the open will attain,  ���������and now that the others have been  taken down and they are left to biave  the storm alone they are  unequal to  the task.  ' Tn  a  sudden  gust   which  came   along   on   Wednesday of last  week   the big fir at the front of Dr.  JMcEwen's house fell,   but fortunatelj-  toe>k a direction  away from any of  the dwellings   which might have been  damaged by it.    The  circumstance is  not pleasant  to contemplate,  especially by  those  who have large  trees  standing within reach of their houses;  for while these   may  give excellent-  service   as  shade   tree's   in   the   hot  weather the rislc of being crushed by  them is too greiit and as a result many  of them --will'likely be cut down. ���������  Deserving Compliment Neatly Put  Three of the gentlemen, Messrs.  Wylie, Merrill and Bosco, who were  sampling the Nickel Plate went out on  Friday morning last. A corps of men  will remain for a couple of months or  so diamond-drilling to enable an estimate to be made of the value of un-  openeel ground. It is said that it may  ���������probably take three months before  the final date is ready upon which a  decision will be made.  Mrs. Marlowe, of Princeton, was in  Hedley last week on her way  to Keremeos to attend the dance  given by the bachelors of Keremeos in  Richter's hall .011 Friday night last.  Mr. Hugh Hunter, government agent,  who was making an official visit to  Hedley and Keremeos, was cavalier  for the occasion and solved the transportation problem by taking her there  and back in his Irish jaunting-car.  Dr. and Mrs. Schon, of Princeton,  were in town last week on their way  to Vernon, where they were moving  their family .and will reside hence-  feirth, as some other members of the  family are living there. The doctor  has some fruit land there that is coul-  ing into bearing, and as he has been  practising his profession for forty  years he will spend the balance of his  days under his own vine anel fig tree  anel escape the hardships incident  upon medical practice ou the frontier.  His old friends in the Similkanieen are  sorry to see him leave the-valley, and  will miss his genial courteous greetings.  Bro. Dallam, editor of the Oroville  Gazette, who is the proud father of a  worthy son thus refers to appointment of the latter :to a position of  trust. The compliment it contains  has its main charm, in the delightful  blending of innate modesty and paternal pride. Had these been mixed in  any other proportion's the paragraph  might have jarred; as it is it merely  charms. Its writer in seeking to obscure himself in order to pay a deserved tribute to.those dearest to him, unconsciously exalts himself. The compliment reads:  "Frank Dallam, jr., formerly private  secretary   of  Gov.   Mead  and   later  secretary of the railroad commission,  has just been appointed  by Gov.. Hay  as his private secretary.   The .writer  can say with a good deal of pride that  the appointment could not have fallen  to a more worthy young man.  He has  known the young.man for quite ii number of years, and intimately.   He long  ago realized that the youth inherited  all of his mother's virtues with none  of his father's faults,   and hence could  not fail to make good in any position  in life where fortune might place him.  As secretary to Gov. Mead Mr. Dallam  made an  excellent record,  and Gov.  Hays will find him a valuable man in  the office.     It is evident that the governor realized that fact when he made  the selection,  as this  was an appointment made without the aim of paving  any political debt,  and  wholly unsolicited."  Foster predicts cold weather in the  month of May.  ^Roosevelt has shot a. garafl'e in Africa and is still lion hungry.  "If the V. V. & E. railway has no  legal authority.to extond'its.line from  False creek to Bnrrard inlet, then, the  board of railway commissioners must  lack jurisdiction. But it has the legal  right, and I cannot understainl why  any question should be raised,", observed Mr. A.'l-I." MacNeill, K.'C,  counsel for the Great Northern railway.  "The facts are very plain. 'By all  order of the railway commission  issued May 23, 1907, the construction  of the.main line of the V.,.W. <fc Y.  rsilway from the south shore of False  creek to Bnrrard inlet was authorized.  Assignments were afterward made by  the V., W. & Y. railway to the V. V.  & E. railway of all constructed lines  and all authorities to build lines in the  city of Vancouver.  "The assignments specifically covered the order allowing the construction  to Burraid inlet. I then considered  the advisability of eibtaining a new  order in. tlie name, of the V.* V. & E.-  railw'ay, covering"this .branch line to  to the inlet; I filetl plans and made an  application" to the board' of railway'  commissioners. ; The whole "matter  was_th'enrl submitted to the board in  Ottawa on January 23rd last.  "The board held that there was.no  necessity for a new order. It made  a formal order declining to grant a  new order in the- name of the V. V. .&  E. railway for the reason-���������I, am quoting the language of the order���������'that  the said applicant company has acquired the rights of the V., W. & Y.  Railway company, and the said application has been already granted.' The  board'went further. It madeanor-  der that all and each eif the orders of  the board respectively recited, and  which are .referred to in the schedule  attached thereto, heretofore issued in  the name of the V., W. & Y. railway,  be confirmed'and ratified in the name  of the V.

C  1 THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   MAY 6, 1909.  Review of the Copper Handbook  Continued fron Pago One.  The principal chapter <>f the book,  devoted to detailed descriptions of the  copper mines of the globe, has 1.185  pages, describing no less than 0,767  'copper mines anel copper companies,  in all parts of the world, comparing  with 4,027 listed in the preceding edition. This long chapter, which was  unrevised in volume VII, owing to  fire, accident and .illness, has been  completely rewritten, even the obituaries of the defunct companies ha ving  been improved by the addition of neat  verbal tombstones.'.  Copper is considered under a great  variety of heads, in the parliminary  chapters of the book, these giving, in  non-techincal but correct language, a  vast amount of information relating  to the geology and mineralogy of  copper and copper ores, with chapters  devoted to mining, nulling, smelting,  leaching and refining, and yet other  chapters treating of the history of the  metal, brands, grades, substitutes and  uses. The very complete glossary of  mining terms is reprinted from Vol.  VII. The final chapter; devoted to  statistics, is the most complete and  compendious given in any work dealing with the subject, whether issued  officially or privately, and its authority has been recognized officially, and  by the copper trade.  It is rarely that a single work is  found of such general importance to  such a great diversity of interests as  the Copper Handbook, which is practically an encyclopedia of the entire  subject of copper, and, as such, is of  equal interest to miner, metallurgist,  refiner, producer and consumer. To  the investor or speculator in copper  shares, it is as nearly indispensible as  a work of reference can become. As  usual, the Copper Handbook is exceedingly frank in its comments, and the  descriptions of mining companies considered by the author to be dishonest,  are marked by the utmost .limit of  . plain-speaking. That seven preceding  editions, :embodying language of the  same tartness, "have appeared without  % single libel suit being brought into  court, though many going companies  are branded as. swindles, is evidence  that Mr. Stevens, notwithstanding  the fact that he denounces several  hundred companies as frauds, is sure  of his ground in making such scathing  arraignments as are contained in this  and the past editions of his book.  The price of the Copper Handbook  is five dollars, in a strong green buckram binding, and the. selling plan is  unique, as the book is sent to anyone  ordering it, from any part of the  globe, without a penny in advance,  the publisher prepaying carriage  charges, and allowing the purchaser a  week's inspection, and accepting the  return of the book in settlement of  the charge if, upon inspection, it does  not prove satisfactory. That this plan  is successful is proven by the fact that  it has been followed for six consecutive  years, and that the Copper Handbook  now circulates in every country that  has a postage stamp of its own, and is  claimed, by the. publisher, without recorded contradiction, to enjoy the  largest circulation of any mining  annual printed in any language?. Anyone interestetl in copper, or copper  shares, can well afford to write Mr.  Stevens, ordering a copy of the Copper  Handbook, without advance payment,  and subject to approval after a week's  inspection.  ���������  ���������  ���������  ���������  X  COPPER  The New Edition of the  COPPER HANDBOOK.
