The Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power company
produced 3,156,486 pounds of copper in January, according to a
New York report. This may be
compared with 2,955,450 produced
in the previous month and is the
largest since September, when the
production was 3,371,535 pounds.
The production in January, 1918
was 4,209,393, or over 1,000,000
pounds more than in January 1919.
An estimate on the earnings in
January is made difficult by declines in the metal market daring
that month, bufe some basis is provided by fehe report for February,
1918, when the price of the metal
was high and the estimate of
earnings was in the neighborhood
of $400,000 on  3,843,686 pounds.
The    production   in   January,
1919, was made almost solely at
the Anyox smelter, where the costs
are 10 to 11 cents a pound, An
intention of suspension at Grand
Forks smelter soon was announced
several weeks ago. The production, by pounds for the last 13
months at both smelters is contained in the table that follows:

tho voice of that democratic elector

i warn the  disorderly elements  that :f
they provoke the opinion of ihe. nation much further they -will be taught
a lesson.
"Wc arc going to bave pot'.ec in
this country," remarks tlie Daily
Mail. "No combination of blatherskites and roughncchs shall dcpc.se
onr democratic system and embroil
us in tbe strife and miserv of ->-iar-
cl.y.".
Nearly    all    the papers    invito  tbe
'malcontents to study the results of
Leninism aud Trotskyism in Russia
and then say whether they want snch
conditions    produced    in    Britain  or
'anywhere else in the. \vorbl. It is
recognized on all    hands that trades
��� iniionisnt    is     passing    through' the
'gravest crisis; in its history. its
leadership is. 'violently cliaric:w,"e.l.

SAYS CORNS LIFT j
RIGHT OUT NOW I
* '    t
You reckless men .ind women who
arc pestered with corns and who
have at least once a week invited an
awful death from lockjaw or blood
poison are now told by a Cincinnati
authority to usc a drug called free-
zone, which thc moment a few drops
are applied to any corn, the soreness
is relieved and soon the entire corn,
root and all, lifts out with the fingers.
Jt is a sticky ether cornpmnd
which dries the moment it is applied and simply shrivels the corn
without inflaming or even irritating
ihe_ surrounding tissue or skin. It is
claimed that a quarter of an ounce of
frcezone will cost very little at any
of the drug stores, but is sufficient lo
rid one's feet of every bard or soft
corn or callus.
���You are further warned that cutting; at a corn is a suicidal habit.

"Although the Japanese navy did
convoy the ships carrying thc Australian troops to tlic front," itc said,
"it is, and I believe always will be
the feeling in my country that immigration must be restricted to lb",

As to the so-cailcd secret treaty
that has comc into prominence within thc last few days regarding ihe
Pacific possessions, 1 think that thc
people of Australia will want to know
if thc premier, William Morris
Hughes and Sir Joseph Cook, minister of the navy, knew of these, secret treaties or concurred in them.
Contrary to thc protestations of
Japan, their existence was news to
us in Australia.

For the Development of Her Industries
Berlin. ��� The. inoccupation ol Alsace and Lorraine bas returned to
France enormous iron deposits which,
under proper development would
make France one of thc largest iron
producing countries in Europe. However, France has not enough coal or
coke for this development. Before the
war, France operated most of her
furnaces with coke imported from
Germany, much of it particularly in
thc Briey and Longwy basins coming
from Essen, Germany.
If France, after peace is declared,
remains dependent upon Germany for
coke France's iron industry will bc at
the mercy of Germany and cause for
friction will continue. On the other
hand, Germany has enough iron aud
surplus coal and ��� perhaps some
amicable arrangement could bc made
by which Germany would cede lo
France a part of the Sarre coalfields.
This would seem all the more practical considering that Germany will
perhaps be unable to pay her indemnities and witb France, unquestionably Germany's biggest creditor, part
nf tlic Sarre coalfields could bc considered to balance part of the German debt to devastated and impoverished France. Of course, thc main
objection to such a transfer v ouhl b<-
thc fate of the Ginnan subjects in
the Sarre. region.

Madgcburg lies on the Elbe, seventy-six miles southwest of Berlin,

Over Who Beat the Austrians and to
Whom Fleet Belongs
Paris. ��� Thc proverbial tempest in
a teapot has arisen here between thc
Serbs and the Italians over who beat
thc Austrians, and as to whom the
Attstro-Hungarian fleet belongs.' Italians claimed that Serbian "intellectuals" addressed a manifesto" to French
politicians and others, charging . the
Italians witb persecuting J u go-Slavs
in occupied territories, forbidding Uie
wearing of thc Jugo-Slav cockade,
etc.; declaring the Austrian defeat on
the Piave aud lhe resultant collapse
of the empire was due principally to
thc Jugo-Slav revolution and claiming
lhe Austrian navy, because it was
largely  built,  paid   for  and     manned
f the region of Av'.oua,    while  Italy j'-'y Jugo-Slavs  aud  seized it.
The Italian bureau of propaganda
here issued a counter manifesto.     H
taken from Turkey in the Tripolilan

Italian Warships to Stop Trouble
Rome. ������ Disorders   'of    an    anti-
Italian character must be    repressed
mentri Dy trying uncertain remedies.
Strong medicines are hard on tho
stomach; pre-diirested foods only aggravate tiie trouble. What is needed
jis a tonic that will so strengthen the
j stomach as to enable it to do its own
work. There is j. ; tonic for thc
stomach that is not at thc same time
a tonic for every other part of thc
body. As the blood dreulatcs through
all the body an impiovement in I'a
condition quickly results in strengthening any weak organ. Rich red
blood is absolutely necessary to good
digestion. If your stomach is weak,
if you are troubled with sour risings
in your throat, a feeling of nausea
after eating, pains or fluttering about
the heart, try at once the true tonic
trealnier.t of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
So many people have been helped by
this treatment that every sufferer
from indigestion should promptly try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Arnon^ the

In closing, Mr. Asquith. emphasized
the importance of .the league in view
of social unrest and upheaval and
suggested that a league of cla.-.ses
was perhaps no more Utopian than a
league of nations ceenud live year,

Ships Car of Wheat
The Nelson News has the following to say in reference to the
wheat shipped  from  Bock Creek:
"Shipment from Rock Creek of
a carload of wheat to Vanconver
represents an important advance
in the agricultural progress of the
Boundary country and is indicative of the great possibilities which
lie before the farmers of that section of the interior.
It is satisfactory to note, also,
that the wheat graded No. 1, even
though the season was not one of
most favorable.
Agricultural development in the
interests of the province, important
as it already is, is only in its
infancy."
Sawmill to Operate
Mark Christensen and Sons have
bought Chas. Oliver's sawmill at
the Jewel mine, and moved it from
that point to their ranch near
Boundary Falls. The mill is
ready for operation and it is expected that sawing will begin this
week. They have enough timber
to make four millions feet, of
lumber, and this will keep them
busy for many a month as the
mill is only of ten thousand feet
daily capacity. A crew of seven
men will be employed. There was
a mill at this point before bnt it
was destroyed by fire abont two
years ago.
Why Import Weeds?
The suggestion that seeds of the
Flanders poppy should be imported
to Canada is carrying sentiment to
a dangerous extreme. The plant
ie, after all, only a beautiful weed,
a common pest in France. It
would be wise to take thought and
to learn from a former experience
of a similar nature. The bine-
weed, or Bishop's Curse, was imported several years ago, presumably for garden purposes exclusively, but it is now a noisome peBt in
portions of eastern Canada. The
thought of the Flanders poppies
"over there" calls forth feelings of
national pride. Bringing them
over here will destroy their sentimental value for Canadians and
will add another to onr long list of
plant nuisances.

To be Held in Vancouver
There is no question of the success of the International Mining
Convention to be held iu Vancou
ver on March 17, IS, and 19 next.
From points as far away as Los
Angeles and San Francisco as well
as Denver and other big mining
centres comes the intimation that
the most prominent figures in the
mining world are coming to Vancouver next month. Dean Probert
of the University cf California may
be one of the speakers if he caji get-
back from the mining districts of
France and Belgium in time. Mr.
Burr Evans of the golden state,
known as one of the foremost mining engineers of the U.S., has
stated specifically that he is coming northward next month while
Mr. D, M. Riordan of San Francisco has replied to the invitation
to the effect that "it is going to be
a big thing that will prevent me
visiting B. C. in March to take
part in the convention." And
these are only samples of the letters that are being received  daily.

Some Difference
There is a good story told by
Harry Pareons of Golden, who
passed through the city last San-
day. It is short and to the point.
What is the difference between the
Canadian returned 'soldier and the
American returned soldier? When
the Canadian soldier comes home
they kill the fatted calf; when the
American soldier comes bome they
shoot the bull. That is the whole
story.;��� Kamloops 8tandard-Sen-

A Yeaily Olccurrence
The new tenant had rented the
house and was about to sign, the
agreement. "Of course,"saidthe
agent, ' 'you understand there is no
Bathroom in the house.'' ��'Oh,"
said the tenant, "'that makes no
difference; we only want the house
for a year.;'-; -Xx

TELEPHONE SERVICE INSURANCE
It is often a temptation to call telephone numbers from memory.
In a surprisingly great percentage of cases this results in serious
losses of time, the referring of calls to special operators, an unex-
.plaiuable annoyance to those called in error. -
There is no better insurance on effective service than the two
following practices:
FIRST���invarably to consult the directory and call by number,
slowly, one numeral at a time;
SECOND���to evidence the same consideration and politeness
"'���-������.'-��������� that is shown by the operator when difficulties arise,
t...;.   regardless of their origin.
