The   New York
prints the following:
The latest statement issued by
fehe Company, under date of November 16, 1915, states fehat there
are S,900,000 tons of proven ore,
averaging 1.75 per cent, copper,
and 2,000,000 tons of partially
proven ore, averaging SI.75 per
cent, copper, or a total of 10,900,-
000 tons, wifeh an average value of
1.75 per cenfe. copper and an estimated value *of 20 per ton in gold
and silver.
On the strength of these developments the company recommends
the installation of a flotation
plant wifeh a daily capacity of 2,000
tons of ore, afe which rate of extraction the property would have
a life of at least fifteen years without developing any more ore reserves.
This ore has been proven up by
78,000 feet of diamond drilling and
30,000 feet of trenching, up to
November 1st, 1915.
In view of fehe fact that the company owns ^35 acres of mineral
ground and that three diamond
drills are afe present in operation
on the same it appears that the
aboAe ore reserves will be materially added to and that Canada
Copper will enter the ranks of the
low-cost producing porphyry mines
within a year or so.
That the property is a meritorious one is evidenced by the fact
that the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company's engineers, who have
kept in close touch with the development of Copper Mountain, have
assured themselves of the advisability of running a spur to the
mines from Princeton, a distance
of 12 miles in direct line. The
line has already been practically
located, and as soon as the matter
of rates, which is being discussed
between fehe mining company's
officials and the railway company's
offiicials has been decided upon the
construction work will  be started.
In the meantime work at the old.
properties at Greenwood, B. C,
which was resumed last August,
after a year's idleness, is goings
along smoothly and the company;
is realizing good profits as the re
suit of smelting operations now in
progress. The Greenwood ^bres
are smeltered direct, whereas Copper Mountain ores are of the disseminated porphyry type, and it is
for this reason that the aforementioned flotation plant :or concentrating the same has been recommended. The company's engineers estimate that a maximum'of
82,000,000 will be required to ;place
the property on a producing basis
of 2,000 tons of ore per day, with
an estimated cost of production of
8_e. per pound of copper after
crediting gold and silver values for
50 per cent of the tonnage and
lOJc. per pound of copper for the
deeper ores. ���---���

an extreme example of the manner
in which this fishery throughout
the Dominion bas been steadily
but surely depleted.
Th;rfey-five years ago the St.
John river contained an immensely productive sturgeon fishery,
which, prior 60 1880, wag unutilized because Canadian fishermen
were not aware ofthe real value of
the sturgeon. When, however, itp
commercial value became known,
mainly through the caviar mer-
chanta in New York city, no time
was lost in exploiting the fishery
to the maximum.
In fehe absence of effective restrictions, the supply of sturgeon j
in the St. John river was rapidly
exhausted. In the two yoars 1880
and 1881, the catch in New Brunswick exceeded the total output of
the province for the following
thirty-two years.

swept over Canada a few months

as far as baying guns is concerned.
The money will be need for some
other purpose. We always thought
that the military ��� authorities -did
not like - the people butting in.
Looked as though the war office
did not know enough to keep the

Pure Sweet Love
It is not necessary to be great to
be happy; it is not necessary to be
Hch to be just and generous and to
have a ' heart filled with divine
'..Section. No matter whether
you are rich or poor, treat your
wife though Bhe were a spleridid
flower, and she will 611 your life
with perfume and with joy.
And do you know, it is a splendid thing to think that the woman
you really love will never grow old
to you. Through the wrinkles of
time, through the mask of years,
if you really love her, you will always see the face you have loved
aud won. And the woman that
really loves a man does not see
that he grows old; he is not decrepit to her; he does not tremble;
he is not old; she always sees;the
Fame gallant gentlemen who won
her hand and heart. I like to
think of it in that way; I like to
think that love is eternal. And to
love in that way and then to go
down the hill of life together, and
as you go down, hear, perhaps, the
laughter of grandchildren,when the
birds of love and joy ring once
more in the leafless branches of tbe
tree of age,���Ingersoll.

A.t present the iRosebery concentrator is only running one shift
Last month the Lucky Jim mine
shipped between sixty and seventy
cars of mill feed to the Roseberry
At the Star mine, Sandon, ore is
being sloped from a five-foot vein
on the 9 level. This is the vein
they have been drifting for for
some time.
Owing to a shortage of water the
Galena Farm concentrator is only
running one shift daily. A gasoline engine will be installed as an
auxiliary power.
LaBt week Thos. Avison and J.
H. Cory finished rawhiding the
season's output of 30 tons from the
Idaho to the Alamo siding. Louis
Scaia will continue work all winter
at the mine.
J. Gh Ryan of Three Porks was
in town today. Smelter returns
from the Black Grouse gave $568,
net for 11 tons. On the Evening
Star, which he bas been developing the past season, there is a 12
inch vein, on which an assay made
in the provincial_ mineralogist's
office gives 237 ounces silver, 2 per
cent copper and a trace in gold.
J. H. Thompson, manager of the
Echo mine was in town Monday
and went to Nelson Tuesday. He
reports excellent results from development on the ore body. The
ledge is about forty feet wide of
concentrating orebnt'���"," it is hoped
that development will uncover fe
body of clean ore such as that in
the 4, 5 and 6 levels of the Standard.���-Slocan Record.
