it very much amid the roaring of
cannon, aud the mad whiz of
flying shells. He is now just behind one of the warmest spots
along the British front, and quite
happy, although the weather has
been execrable. It is amazing
how the men and horses stand the

three day.., and while the horses
were in mud past their hocks, it
froze in the early morning, and
the soldiers had to dig the equines
out. In spite of the weatber and

Canada Copper
President Mayer of the British
Columbia Copper company, which
controls the Canada Copper company, when interviewed by a representative of the Industrial And
Mining Age as to the cause of the
rise in Canada Copper shares,
seemed somewhat surprised. He
stated that there were no particular reason at this time for market enhancement, but that it was
probably due to the advance in the
price of copper metal. With regard to developmeut at the mine,
he stated that they were progressing satisfactorily and that the company was making a fair profit at
present prices of copper.
According to latest reports, the
Copper Mountain property has developed about 10,900,000 tons of
ore of au average grade of 1.75
per cent, copper, or 35 pounds per
ton, with small values in gold and
silver. This would give the ore
reserves a total copper content of
:.S1.500,000 pounds, which at an
average price of 15c and a working
cost of SI cents per pound, would
yield a net proOb of $24,798,500,
equivalent to ��10 per share.
The company is now erecting a
'-.,000-tou plant to treat these ores,
which will result iu a production
at the rate of 00,000 pounds per
day, or 22,000,000 pounds per
annum. On the eamo basis of cost
or production and average price of
copper, this would ensure earnings
<>f 31,474,200 per annum, equivalent to 91:. per share, which on
��� he present price of the issue is
���ibout 48 per cent, on the capital
invested. As the present ore reserves, with a milling capacity of
2,000-tons per day, wonld have a
life of about 1G years, this would
mean a return of about $16 per
.-hare for that period, which indicates that the stock is worth considerably more than present
quotations.
The Canada Copper Company
has thus far developed a fair-sized
low grade mine. With the recent
financing through the iesuing of
the 82,000,000 of bonds, it promises to enter the ranks of the low-
price copper issues within a year
or two as a dividend paying prop*
osition.
The Canadian Pacific engineers
are convinced   of  the   Buccessfal
Of particular interest to prospectors is the possibility that
Lome A. Campbell, minister of
mines, may introduce legislation
providing for the giving of rights
to prospect forfeited crown granted mineral claims. The idea originated with W. R. Winstead and
was dealt with exclusively and
fully by tho Kootenaian in one of
its issues of last winter. The plan
is to give prospecting rights at a
nominal figure and the person securing such rights is to have the
lirst opportunity to acquire the
grouudMf an} thing!] worth while is
uncovered.
Henry Murhard, of Three Forks,
who* secured^ a lease of the Black
Grouse up the north fork of Carpenter, after the property was
dropped by William Barner, reports having opened up an encouraging looking four inch streak of
dry ore, assaying 151 oz. in silver
to the ton and carrying some antimony. Development of this ore
body is being proceeded with. In
the vicinity of the Black Grouse,
Oliver Landreville and partners
are developing a re-location of the
Silver Key claim, and ore of a
similar nature is being found,
some samples being taken down to
Three Forks last week, which give
indications of carrying good values.
Some    apprehension    has   been
caused in local mining circles as
the result of a reported order of
the Canadian Pacific railway forbidding the turning over to the
American railways of any Canadian Pacific freight cars, loaded or
unloaded. This order, if adhered
bo, would adversely affect zinc pre
shipments from this section, which
is almost wholly dependent upon
Aa_erican smelters for the handling of zinc ores and concentrates.
Ib is stated that the order has gone
into effect as the result of the car
shortage ia the United States, the
railways there apparently turning
every-C. P. R. empty they could
lay hands on to for their own use,
and as the Canadian line wants its
own cars, it naturally objects, to
this. It is reported that some
150,000 C. P. R. cars are being
used by the American lines.���

" /""'ANADA from her abundance can help supply the Empire's needs,
^*/ and this must be a comforting thought for those upon whom the
heavy burden of directing the Empire's affair.? hiss been laid. Gain or
no gain the course before the farmers of Canada is as clear as it was
last year���they must produce abundantly in order to meet the demands
that may be made, and I believe this to be especially true in regard to
live stock, the world's supply of which must be particularly affected in
this vast struggle. Stress and strain may yet be in store for us alt
before this tragic conflict is over, but not one of us doubts the issue,
and Canadians will do their duty in the highest sense of that great
word."���HON. MARTIN IWRRKLL, MinMir t>J Agriculture.
'#���
MODERN war is made by resources, by money, by foodstuffs, at
well as by men and by munitions. While war is our first business, it is the imperative duty of every man in Canada to produce till
that he can, to work doubly hard while our soldiers are in the trenches,
in order that the resources of the country may not only be conserved, but
increased, for the great struggle that lies before us. ' Work and Save'
is a good motto for War-time."���SIR THOMAS WHITE, Minuter
of Finance.

We must feed ourselves, feed our soldiers, and help feed the Allies.    The need is greater in
016 than it was in 1915.    The difficulties are greater, the task is heavier, the
need is more urgent, ihe call to patriotism is louder���therefore be
thrifty and produce to the limit.
