$53.00 to the ton net in gold alone -
after paying all railway and

for the gold content at Anyox as"
they have no meanB of saving fehe
other values.

resumption of operations and  will
bring the  net Bmelter  receipts to
875,000 or 880,000 on  fehe 90 per

The value of the shipments   has
ranged  from  $4,000  to $7,000 nefe

London.���Thc report that the German cabinet had decided not to sign

subject of comment in - the London
newspapers. - They call Lhc action of
the German government a "comedy"
and say it was well staged. .The newspapers say that Germany has always
had faith in the policy of threats and
bold talk and that the failure of tins
attitude in the war has not prevented
her from continuing it in defeat. Thc
papers declare that thc allies have
no intention of imposing upon Germany terms comparing in severity
with those Germany imposed on Russia and Roumania a year ago. The
Times,.in an editorial, points out that

Men and Women Alike Suffer From
This Serious Ailment
"No heart for anything" is thc cry
of thousands of men and women who
might bc made well and strong by lhc
new, -rich red blood Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills actually make.
Misery day and night is the lot of
hosts of men and women who arc today the victims of weak nerves. Thin,
pale, drawn faces and dejected attitude tell a sad'talc, for nervous weak-,
ness means, being tortured by morbid
thoughts and unaccountable fits of depression. These sufferers arc painfully sensitive and easily agitated by
some chance remark. Sleeplessness
robs them of energy and strength;
their eyes are sunken and their limbs
tremble; appetite is poor and memory often fails. This nervous exhaustion is one of the most serious evils
affecting men and women of today.
The only way to bring back sound,
vigorous health is to feed the starved
nerves, which arc clamoring-for ncw,
rich blood. This ncw blood can be
had through the usc of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, which fact accounts for the
thousands of cures of nervous diseases bronchi about by this powerful j

Granby Smelter Not Closing
The Grand Forks Gazette says:
'���Granby 6melter afc Grand
Forks is operating, and will operate for roaoy moons to come���
countless dozens of rumors and
supposed authentic statements to
the contrary notwithstanding.
.. At least this is the sum and substance of the best information
.viiich the Gazette bas been able to
'..���Hain affecting the industry which
has put and has~ helped to keep
Grand Forks prominently oa the
map during fehe past 20 years.
Although miners were said to be
leaving Phoenix like rats from a
ranking ship, that fehe existence of
the smelter was said to have been
educed to a matter of bufe a few
days, fehat the mine had petered
out and that costs were too high if
there were ore, forty dozen other
.reasons that had given riso to sen:
sational-: rumors, afloat; notwithstanding this and many other apparent clouds that hung, low, ..the
. Granby smelter blew, in an additional furnace this -..week���three
furnaces now..' operating���and a
notice was bulletined -at the reduc:
tion. works that .it was the. intention of the Granby management to
"continue operations as long as
possible.'-' While this statement is
undoubtedly undefinifee, ife may be
safely; assumed thafe it: is not the

When the programme of the
International Mining convention
which is to be held in Vancouver
on March 17, IS and 19 is published it will be seen that the men
who have been, so to speak born
in the mining game have signified
their willingness to be present and
deliver addresses "at^the different
sessions. Chief among these is T.
A. Richard editor of the Mining
and Scientific Press of San Francisco. Mr. Richard is one of the
highest authorities iu the world on
mining. He is perhaps the most
widely travelled mining engineer
in the world and knows more about
.the subject than most men. He
arrived in U. S. just about the
time the excitement was high in
Colorado and took part in the
operations there between 1885 and
He is a member of practically
every mining organization in Canada and the United States and he
knows B. C. like a book having
travelled very extensively through
the province. In addition to being
a mining man he is an author of
note and his works are looked
upon as standard books. Two of
them are: "Across fehe San Juan
Mountains" and "Through the
Yukon and Alaska."
He is scheduled to speak on
"Mining as an Investment" on
the first night of the convention
and there are few. men better qualified, to handle this important* sub'
ject. The address, should be brimful of enlighfementahd information.
The detailed programme willbe
announced within a few days and
in the meantime' the reports that
have been received from every district have.been fulL of enthusiasm
for the coming gathering.
