Mining Notes
The New War Loan
The Dominion of Canada's new
war loan was launched on Monday,
March 12th, as will be observed
through the prospectus published
on this page of The Ledge today.
The loan is for $150,000,000 in the
form of 20-year 5 per cent, bonds.
Principal and interest will be payable in gold in New York as well
as all principal centres in  Canada.
According to the announcement
the new issue will be Bold at a price
to yield 5�� per cent. This meanp
that tbe bonds will be sold to the
investor under 96.
The price of the new loan is being based on the market price of
the first and second loans. The
first loan, maturing December^
1025, is now selling around 97��,
yielding 5.30 and that maturing
1931, now selling at 96Jr, is yield-
iug 5.20, now selling at free of all
Canadian government taxation. It
will be sold by all banks and brokers in denominations of from $100
to $25,000.
Both of the previous loans have
been largely over-subscribed. The
first, offered in November, 1915,
was originally for $50,000,000.
There were 25,000 individual subscriptions. The second loan,
offered in September, 1916, was for
��100,000,000. The amount sub-;
scribed for was $200,000,000, made
np of 35,000 subscriptions.
The Dominion department of
finance is campaigning for at least
50,000 subscriptions to this third
loan. Ib is expected the loan will
meet with as much enthusiasm as
that displayed by the people of
Great Britain, who recently floated
the 85,000,000,000 "Victory
Loan." Because of the large
number of small subscriptions as
well as tbe unprecedented total of
the loan, it was the greatest
achievement in history. Investors
in all Canadian government war
loans can convert their bonds into
cash witbiu half an hour of any
time by selling through their
brokers on the Toronto or Montreal
stock exchanges.
During the first seven days of
the current mouth, the Consolidated Mining and Smelting company received 9,500 tons of ore for
treatment in its smelter at Trail.
��� Washington mines contributed
1,460 tons of this ore aud the Her-
cules'of Wallace,'Idaho,-010 tons.
Owing to the shortage of coke,
the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting company has issued a
statement to all gold-copper ore
shippers to the smelter^ at Trail,
notifying them that no further
shipments will be received after
those made March 15, until such
time as an adequate supply of coke
is^assured.
The Union mine, Gloucester
Camp, shipped another car.oad of
ore to .the] Granby' smelter on
Thursday last.

Speak Easily
and Directly
Into The
Telephone
Even telephone men of long
experience are surprised at the
greater voice distinctness when
speaking directly into the - telephone, When you speak directly
into the telephone, a lower tone
of voice can be used, and your
friend can hear easily.
Moreover, when you speak
lower, the actual tone-qualities of
your voice are transmitted. When
you speak loudly, you unconsiously
adopt an unnatural tone of voice,
with the result that much of that
i nt; tnacy that should be associated
with face-to-face conversation is
tost.
A close position to the telephone
means easy talking and easy hearing- ...
