The British Columbia Copper
Company is one of< the few idle
copper producers which has not
yet taken full advantage of the
great improvement in the copper
metal situation.
Whereas the other producers are
expanding operations to somewhere
near normal, and those which shut
down last August have resumed
production, the British Colnmbia
smelter at Greenwood, B. 0., has
not yet blown in, nor have any definite plans been made for resumption of production, since it was
closed down August 20 following
the outbreak of the war in Europe
and fehe dislocation of the copper
It is probable, however, that at
the annual meeting some announcement will be forthcoming as
to the plans of the company, especially with regard to resuming production, and resuming earnings
with which to pay afe least parfe of
fehe campaign of development and
the interest on the bonded indebtedness of the company.
The annual meeting will take
place in Charlestown, W. Va., at
noon, March 9, in the office of
George D. Moore. Transfer books
close February; 26 at 3 p.m. and
re-open March 10 at 10 o'clock

The developments   in  the new
Copper Mountain property are described by officials of the company
as ^eminently   satisfactory.    New
ore is being opened up  which  exceeds   the   original   anticipations
very materially,   both   as- regard
grade   of   the   ore   and tonnage.
Drilling crews have been cat down
daring the past few months, owing,
among other things, to tbe inclement wintery  weather.    Ife is  aiso
probable that shortage of available
funds is handicapping operations.
, Ife is barely possible thafe the profits from  the Mother Lode mine
may be greatly increased.  " Recoveries   have   droppod   sadly   here.
They were   formerly   around * 18
pounds of copper, and 99c feo 81'23
in gold-silver per ton.   They dropped in 1913 to 13J pounds of copper and 76c.  in gold-silver,  and
smelting costs rose   higher.    The
new copper Mountain ores will furnish a mixture which should reduce smelting costs materially, 'and
it is possible   fehat the improved
smelting mixture may result in an
improvement  in   recoveries   from
Mother Lode ores. ��� A larger tonnage of Mother Lode ores  can also
be treated  than  the" 425,000 "tons

Under the heading, "Canada
and the War," the Calgary Ad
Club has issued a statement which
is being widely circulated in the
United States in an effort to counteract the rumors which have been
spread there to fehe effect that Germans, AustrianB and Turks living
in Canada arebeing harshly treated
by the Canadian goverment, aud
that people in Canada are being
drafted for service in the European
war against their will. This statement says: "Such rumors are
false. No person in Canada of
whatever nationality can be compelled to take up arms. Enlistment is entirely voluntary, and, in
fact, more men have volunteered
than could be accepted. No German, Austrian or Turkish resident
of Canada has been subjected to
any kind of harsh treatment, or
will be as long as he remains peaceable. His life is in no danger
whatever, and his property is not
disturbed. Following the universal practice, he is required to register his name with fehe police; and
if he does this, and goes about his
ordinary duties in the way he was

The Barbecue.���It was on the
Fourth of July, 1893, tnat the
event occurred. Wa had no celebration on tbe 24jh of May and the
people of New Denver began to
talk of a little sport. There was
quite a lot of prospectors in the
bills and with the people from
Silvsrton, Three Forks and Sandon
we could expect a crowd. A meeting was called and the question
discussed. If I remember right
Sam Wharton was chairman and
Wm. Thomlinson secretary. Mr.
Wharton made a few remarks in
which he advocated an old-fashioned barbecue. A person at the
meeting asked: Will the chairman please tell us what a barbecue
is? Yes, sab, replied fehe chairman. In the State of Georgia,

every year. Yon take a whole ox

B. C. Copper Co.
Canada    Copper   and    British
Columbia     should   show     pronounced    market     activity    and
new life as soon as the Greenwood
smelter   is recommissioned.      Afe
the present price of copper   this
should be very soon indeed.    Several hundred thousand  tons of ore
are already broken down in the
mine ready for extraction and British Columbia is in a position now
to show handsome earnings from
the old properties  nnfeil the new
popper Mountain planircan- bepufc -
into commission.     It is unlikely
that the railroad to Copper Mountain can be completed, the concentrator erected   and  the   property
prepared for mining in less  than a
year.    There is no question,  however, in informed circles bufe that
with the Copper Mountain property
once   producing,   Canada   Copper
and British Columbia stocks should
be selling at a very  much higher
price than their present quotations.

Coalmont Coal
Mr. A. W. * McCulloch, who for
months has been- in charge of the
steam plant afe the Coalmont Colliers, has returned for a short visit
to his home here. Mr. McCulloch
is enthusiastic about fehe coal-producing possibilities of that particular section of the Similkameen.
He says that the Coalmont properties are located about 10 miles
from Princeton and include fields
of great promise.
Three quarters of a million dollars has already been invested by
the Coalmont Coal & Coke - Co. in
the development of its mines at
that point. For some time past
25 tons of first class coal has been
the ontput per day, and this comparatively small amount has fonnd
a ready sale in neighboring construction camps, as well ^ as in
Princeton, where it is benefitted by
comparison with other fuel mined
in the district. At present the
coal mined at Coalmont is transported by aerial tramway to the
siding where the cars are placed
for loading.
Mr. A. N. Cantril, manager for
the company, hopes shortly to increase the output to 1,000 tons
daily. With the railway transportation that will be provided by
the K. V. R., Penticton residents
may look for a welcome reduction
in the price of good coal, and it is
quite possible that even tally they
may obtain such coal next winter
at $6 or $7 per ton. It is said that
the Coalmont Colliery coal compares favorably with the serai hard
varieties from Alberta.���Penticton

every copper property working and
straining to full capacity, and yet
withal unable to meet the voracious, all-cousnming demand for

One result is certain. Ife is the
result that follows whenever the
demand for any staple exceeds the
available supply. It is higher
prices for copper.���Mining Age.
Every war thafe has continued
for any length of time, has had a
demoralizing effect 'upon its participants. It is difficult for men to
settle down to the humdrum affairs of routine life, after having
lived for a long time amid the
blaze of cannon, and the mad hiss
of bullets. The American Civil
War lasted four years and left a
million tramps in its wake. There
is something in warfare that appeals to wen, and once a soldier,
always a soldier in desire.
Copper Demand
The end of the war in Europe
will witness the greatest boom era
in copper that the world has ever
seen. The work of reconstruction
in devasfeed Europe will-consume
great tonnages of the metal. The
now-arresfeed normal development
and halted progress in neutral con-
tries and in those sections of Europe not immediately devasted by
war will add to the demand for
Taking into account the normal
growth of copper consumption,
coupled with the extraordinary re
construction demand as a result of
the wars' destruction, it has been
very conservatively figured that by
1920 tho world will be calling for
over 2,700,000,000 pounds of
American copper per annum.
These figures may not mean much
to fehe laymau, bufe they mean a
great deal more when it is pointed
out that the consumption of American copper by the nations in 1913
was but 1,800,000,000 pounds,
comparing with . 1,200,000,000
pounds in 1908, and 900,000,000
pounds in 1903, and only 625,000,-
000 pouuds in 1898.
In other words, five years hence,
American mines, smelters and-refineries will have to turn but 900,-
000,000.pounds of copper more per
annum than at present. They
cannot do it.
Copper producers throughout the
world are preparing for the enormously increased demand for the
red metal.
John D. Ryan, head . of ' the
Amalgamated Copper organization,
..nnounced a few week ago that the
Anaconda-Amalgameted interests
were ready to spend $5,000,000, in
real money,'enlarging their mines,
mills smelteries and refineries,
within the next; few years Anaconda has already taken the first
steps in this stupendous program.
The prophyry coppers, without a
single exception, are planning important increases in production.
Up in British Columbia, the Granby
and Canada Copper plants have
been preparing for the new area to
come in copper. Down in Mexico,
the Greene-Cananea and other
copper properties will make great
...rides in the next few years above
and; beyond all previous records of
production. In Peru and Chile,
the Cerro de Pasco, Braden, Chile
Copper, and other American and
foreign copper enterprises will pour
vast streams of copper metal on to
the market.
But all these floods of new metal
"will not avail to drown the demand
for copper.
Nine hundred   million pounds
per annum is a tremendous amount
to add to the output of now producing and developing properties.
All the additions contemplated at
the producing   mines,  mills  and
smelters, and all new copper producers which will come into commission in the next five years in
North   and   South   America,   the
Congo and South  Africa, and in
Australia,  Russia and Japan���all
these combined���will fall considerably short of supplying 900,000,000
pounds of additional new copper
yearly which the nations will need
above and beyond fehe requirements
of the past.
Captains and generals of the copper industry, those who are putting their own millions into copper
enterprises, with a keen eye focused
on the near future, look to see
The very hardest thing in the
world, my Bon, you will find to be
tbis: to form your own opinions
and stick to them.
All around you is a mass called
Public Opinion. Ife is the belief of
the mob as the atmosphere encloses yonr body and exercises a
pressure of fifteen pounds to the
square inch of your skin, so this
common opinion constantly forces
itself upon you.
Sometimes ife is good, sometimes

Be neither. Weigh things for
yourself. Accept; nothing that
does not convince you. Don't go
with the multitude just to be
agreeable; don't be stubborn just
to be peculiar.
The one thing worth fighting for,
defending, all your life long, is your
own truth.

Cut It Out
Just now we live .in a world of
war. There are sixty-one thousand
daily newspapers in the world.
One-half of these are printed in
English, observes the Philistine,
and three-fourths of the contents
of all of them is devoted to war.
Most conversation is war talk.
We talk war; dream was; think
War is disturbing all ��� business,
all enterprise, all vocations.
When the Titanic went to the
bottom of the sea, and carried
down sixteen hundred people., we
were horrified.
But for four months fehe daily
sacrifice of life on- the blood-
drenched fields of Europe has-been
twice that of the Titanic victims.
More than that, a vast number
of young men are disabled by disease or wounded irreparably.
Militarism must go. This-war
is a war against war. Jealousy,
vengeance and hate must abdicate.
Civilization, as a sentiment, has
disarmed the individual; now ife
must disarm nations.
Every writer, every -orator���
every reader and every listner���
should think disarmament.
Until disarmament comes we can
never have a world of friends.
The manufacture of deadly
weapons by private corporations
must cease. If murder machines
are made, let them be produced
under an international-license,
with no statesmen, or their Wives
as stockholders.
As long as private individuals
thrive by the making 61 . 'Dreadnoughts," sephistical reasons will
be given why "Dreadnoughts,"
are a necessary and lovely adjunct
to peace, progress and plenty.
Big business has been to blame
in this thing. And- now that big
business is being, buffed, soaped
and sandpapered let it not escape
this truth���that no longer shall individuals be allowed to thrive
through supplying murder machines to the mob.
This Day
Finish every day and be done
with it. You have done-what you
could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in; forget
them as soon as youcan. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and
serenely and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good
and fair. It is too dear with its
hopes and aspirations, to waste a
moment npon the yesterday.���
An Old Story
I have heard of poor and sad
congregations, but the sadest
preacher I ever knew weut from
Posey County? ��� Indiana, to Pike
County, Missouri (where John Hay
discovered Little Breeches and Jim
Bludsoe.) He was starving to
death on donations of catfish
'possum, and a hundred- dollar
salary. Finally he made up his
mind to go away. With wet eyes,
he stood up in the prayer meeting
to: bid good-bye to his weeping congregation.
"Brothers and sisters," he said,
wiping his eyes on his red bandanna
handkerchief, "I've called you together tonight to say farewell.
The Lord has called me to another
place. I don't think the Lord
loves this people much; for none of
you seem to die. He doesn't seem
to want you. And you don't seem
to love each other; for I've never
married any of you. And I don't
think you love me; for you don't
pay me my ��� salary���and your donations . are mouldy fruits and
wormy apples. 'By their fruits
ye shall know them.'
"And now, brothers and sipters,
I am going to a better place. I've
been- (appointed chaplain to the
penitentiary at Joliet. 'Where I
go ye cannot come; bub I go to prepare a place for you.' "
Nobody Cared
My purse and iny body were lean;
I lived on the lowly pink bean;
And down in the gulches and up on the

Acussin'  the strike   that refused to  be

A lonely, unknown, insignificant man,
Ainixin' my dough in a rusty gold pan���
And nobody cared.
Came days when I shorely was blue;
Tobacco smoked sticky as glue;
