Robinson, vice-president  of the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power company of  Granby, Que., who was in Montreal  recently, has a splendid set of photographic views of the company's new  smelting and power plant at Anyox,  British Columbia, says the Montreal  Star.  It is the claim of the company that  this plant is the most up-tOrdate and  complete of its kind in existence and  can market copper at the lowest  price possible at the present time.  Mr. Robinson states that copper  can be laid down in New York from  this plant for 8^ cents per pound,  and that in time they hope .to even  beat that price. With the market  price of copper anywhere-between  14 and 15 cents per pound it can be  seen that the company is in a position to make a good profit at present  market prices.  Mr. Robinson is very enthusiastic  about the future of the property and  states that experts who have seen  the Hidden Creek plant, as it is  known, at Anyox, consider it complete in every detail.  The Granby company now includes  ia relatively small number of Canadian shareholders, thevshares having  very largely passed into the hands of  American interests. When the late  Mr. Miner of Granby, Que., was a  prominent factor in its affairs, there  were numerous Canadian holder's,  but they sold out for the most part.  Mr. Robinson is the only Canadian  now on the board, and he believes  that his countrymen would have done  well had they retained their interest.  The compVny has other mines  along the British Columbia coast,  ���whichwill shipore to the hew works/  Because of the higher tenor of the  Hidden Creek the new plant of 2,000  tons daily capacity will produce as  much copper as the older plant at  Grand Forks, which smelted more  than double that tonnage-. -  " The company has ore reserves of  23,101,075 tons and last year  pro-  ounces of gold, the ore treated  amounting to 1,289,000 tons. Last  year's cost of production, per pound  of copper is 11.5 cents for the entire  works of the company, but, as stated  above, the plant at Anyox has got  the cost down to 8^ cents, and  hopes to do even better.  ��� ������  Government Loans  ... Hon, W. J. Bowser, in outlining  the measures which have been  adopted during recent months in  dealing with the unemployed situation in British Columbia, says that  the government policy in dealing  with the emergency constituted two  lines of action���aid to municipalities in the form of loans and direct  help by employment of the disbursement of supplies.  In respect to the loans to municipalities, Vancouver was, advanced  $5000; South Vancouver, $10,000,  which has since been repaid). Nan-  aimo $10,000, and Port A'.berni  $5000. South Vancouver is considering securing another loan to  meet the present crisis.  Some thousands, of dollars have  been expended in direct relief at  Ladysmith, South Wellington and  Cumberland, and in fact, through  all the area which suffered as the  result of the coal miners' strike on  the Island. This aid was dispensed  through the chief constable, provincial police and governemnt agents  in the various districts; and to a  lesser degree this policy has been  operative throughout the whole  province whenever it was found that  aid was necessary.  Granby Employing 400  There is little or nothing of fresh  import to chronicle on operations at  the local Granby property.. >: Ship^  ping continues steadily and a workj  ing force of four hundred is in con^  stant employment. The number of  furnaces in commission at Grand  Forks is still six. The total shipments for March amounted Id  69,948 tons, and the smelter treati  ment for the same ; period .was  72,248 tons. This is an increase  over February's figures, which were  63,091 tons shipped and 52,500 tons  smelted.  In view of the prevailing sentii  ment that a preference has been  shown by the company in favor  of non-English-speaking employees;  the following figures, wbiclv we  received from the company's local  office, will prove of interest. They  were compiled to meet the exisU  ing situation up. to March 12th. ���It  is suggested that the primary reason for the preponderance of wha.t  might be termed "foreigners," is in  a great measure due to the apathy  displayed by the English-speaking  applicant for a job against working  underground. The number of posts  affording outdoor employment is of  course necessarily limited and the  readiness of the others to accept a  job either above or below ground  naturally gives them,the advantage.

As to Mr. Williams' charge that  the company had discriminated  against English speaking employees  in favor of foreigners, the charge is  untrue. It is well-known that the  average Canadian and . American  mine employee prefers the selective  positions about a mine, and is often  unwilling to bear the brunt of the  heavier underground work, which  naturally falls to the class of men  who are willing to do it.  We hope Mr. Williams will investigate the truth of these conditions for himself, when he will no  doubt be fair enough to withdraw  these wholesale and discreditable  charges so far as the leading mining  companies operating in the province  are concerned.  Death of Dean Flewelling  Political News  The death occurred at Cranbrook  of heart failure on Friday of Rev.  Ernest Purdy Flewelling, rural dean  of Cranbrook,  The late Dean Flewelling was the  third son of Hon. William Flewelling  and was! born at Clifton, N.B., on  March 1, 1846. His mother was,  before her marriage, Miss Esther  Merritt of New York. He married  in 1877, Miss Sara Sinclair, daughter of John Sinclair of Newcastle,  N. B., and is survived by four children, Richmond Flewelling of Windsor, Ont., Mrs. Bastin, wife of Rev.  A. Bastin, Ganges, Salt Spring Island, B.C.; Mrs. Surtees Towgood,  of Sandon, and Mrs. Sydney Brown  of Hamilton. He is also survived  by one brother, Hon. G. H. Flewelling, and one sister, Mrs. Wet-  more, both of Clifton, N. B.  Through ill-health in his early  manhood the late Dean Flewelling  studied privately for the church and  was ordained deacon and priest by  Bishop Medley, metropolitan of Canada. He was rector successively of  Dalhousie, N. B., and Brandon,  Man. He was first rector of St.  Paul's, Vancouver, after which he  went to Kamloops, Nelson aud Dawson City. For the past nine years  he has been rector of the Anglican  church at Cranbrook. ..''���,;���  The late Dean Flewelling was well  and favorably known by many of the  old timers throughout the Boundary  country,   but   particularly   here   in  Special War Stamp Tax  Ottawa, March 31.���A war tax of  one cent has been imposed on each  letter and postcard mailed in Canada  for delivery in Canada, the United  States or Mexico, and on each letter  mailed in Canada for delivery in the  United Kingdom and British posstfi.  sions generally, and whenever the  two cent rate applies, to become  effective on and after April 15, 1915.  This war tax is to be prepaid by  the senders by means of a war stamp  for sale by postmasters and other  postage stamp vendors.  Wherever possible, stamps on  which the words "War Tax" have  been printed should be used for the  prepayment of the war tax, but  should ordinary postage stamps be  used for this purpose they will be  accepted.  This war stamp or additional  stamp for war purposes should be  affixed to the upper right hand portion of the addressed side of the envelope or post card, close to the.  regular postage so that it may be  readily cancelled at the same time as  the postage.  In the event of failure on the part  of the sender through over-sight or  negligence to prepay thjf^ar tax on  each letter or postcard above specified, such a letter or post card will  be sent to the nearest branch dead  I letter office.

So far as the  Granby company is concerned, the  management has always been credited with a desire to treat the company's employees fairly; and few  companies operating in the province  have so creditable a record in this  respect, for both at Phoenix and  Graqd Forks, there is an annual  deficit in connection with the operation of the hospitals at these places,  which is taken care of by this company; so that, instead of making a  profit from the dollar charged the  men the company is at an actual  loss with respect to this fee.  With reference to the hospital  dues contributed by the employees,  the men themselves have full charge  of the administration of the fund.  They have nominated Dr. Dickson  as their medical man to have charge  at Phoenix and Dr. Kingston at  Granby bay. From the fund are  paid the salaries of the medical  staff,- the maintenance of the hospitals and nursing staff, the supply  of drugs and medical comforts. So  far as we are aware the work of  these medical men has given universal satisfaction. If it had not, the  men had the power to make a  change and would have made it.  The Granby company's operations  in British Columbia have been attended with most creditable results,  both as to its own operations aud  as to its enterprise in the develop-  of the mineral resources of the province.

Rebekah Dance  orrin, Thompson  A special program of music has  been prepared by the Ironsides orchestra for the dance, on Easter  Monday, under the auspices of the  local lodge of Daughters of Rebekah. This in conjunction with a very  practical reception and floor committee, assures to all who attend  one of those evenings of entertainment for which the "Rebekahs" are  locally famous. The dance, which  takes place in the lodgeroom, commences at 8.45 p.m., and the price  of the tickets is fifty cents for either  sex.  Rising Copper Market  The copper market continues firm  with prices well above those of a  week ago. Lake copper has sold as|  high as 16^ cents for immediate delivery, which is equivalent to 16}4  cents on 90 days' time. Electrolytic  is quoted at 15J4 cents, an advance  of three-quarters of a cent during  the past few days.  Exports of the metal continue on  a large scale. Up to March 24,  nearly 54,000,000 pounds were shipped abroad, indicating almost 70,1  000,000 for the month, at the same  rate.  It is expected that many of the  big companies, that have for months  been curtailing their output, will  largely increase their shipments during this month.���Commercial.  ��  3C  Combined action on the part of  the Canadian and American authorities has put an end to the operations  of a gang who were making a good ' n  thing from running alien enemies  across from Victoria to the States  Fast motor launches figured largely  in the scheme.  ���Phone 56  P.

Refused Their Salaries  The high sea fleet of Germany  has been "contained" in its home  ports without respite; not a single  German battle squadron has been  at sea.  Five and a half million tons of  German shipping and one million  tons of Austrian shipping has been  driven off the seas or captured. Germany's merchant marine ranked second only to that of Great Britain;  for some' years she held the blue  ribbon of the Atlantic; she was  Britain's most serious rival in every  H'a,' and had practically captured  I rom her the West African trade and  lint with Brazil and Argentina.  The   oversea   trade  of   Germany  and her ally has been strangled, ow-  in<j mainly  to  the   ubiquity  of the  British sea power.     In 1913 the foreign trade of Germany amounted to  1,021,040,000 sterling, 70'per cent  of which was  sea borne.     The foreign   trade   of Austria-Hungary  in  the same year was  valued  at 256,-1  502,000 sterling;  50 per cent of this  w.is probably ocean borne.    Consequently Germany  and her ally have  boon denied a trade aggregating an  annual value; of 86J,260,000 pounds  sterling, halfl of- this gigantic" total  would represent the fine which  the  British   and   French fleets had imposed on these two beligerents since  war broke out  if  all sea traffic had  been stopped.      Some trade in neutral   bottoms  has,    however,   been  canied on, and the net loss has pro-  bably    amounted- to  about 2,000,-  000,000 dollars.  The German colonial empire has  been almost destroyed. The Germans'have expended on colonies altogether about $330,000,000, and  almost all the results of this expenditure have been lost to her owing  to ihe isolation which British sea  power imposed when the war open-  efJ^ft'd the subsequent overseas expeditions which were undertaken  l>\ Biitain, her dominions arid Japan.  There were about forty million  pifrsohs of German, Austrian, or  Hungarian nationality, or origin,  rodent in foreign countries when  w;ir opened. At the lowest estimate one million of those who are of  mi'itary age would have crossed the  <-e.is to fight in Europe, but for the  bajiier imposed by British men-pf-  usir. In this way the supreme na-  v.il power made no inconsiderable  cqnrifibution to the strength of the  allied .armies. This million of men  mi^h't^have turned the scales decisively'in the early period; of the war.  On tbe.other hand, the British  fl et, while denying to the enemies  the use  of the  sea,   has secured to  The theory that ho one man is  indispensable in this world has been  upheld by Lord Kitchener. It. appears that a certain Horace Gee is  the "horrible example" in the case.  Horace, under the impression that  his country needed him more than  his employer, gaily walked away  and enlisted in the army. The result to his employer, a Birmingham  manufacturer, is distressing in the  extreme. He can't be done without,  and as a'consequence the supply of  needle's and awls for the shoemak-  ing trade has been seriously threatened. It really would be interesting  to know what was the size of Horace's pay cheque.  W. Gray, M.P.y of London, Ont.,  has  drawn   the   attention    of   the  department of justice,to  the plight  of Canadian teachers in California.  He says that there are 1500 teach,  ers of Canadian nationality who are  unable  to draw  their   salaries because they have not taken out their  naturalization papers.    In addition  it is changed that 28 professors.and  instructors in the University of California are in -the same plight.    Enforcement of an old state law is said  to be at the bottom of the deadlock,  which it must be admitted is greatly  deplored by a large  majority of the  people in the state.  Shoes that Fit!

According to a scientific writer in  the Manchester Guardian, the largest eggs ever laid by the bird family  were those of the zepyornis. These  particular samples of hen fruit measured a trifle over three feet in length  by 30 inches across, but whether  the bird only laid them once a month  or twice, a year is left to the reader's  conjecture. However, we are happy to learn that the layers of such  unwieldy eggs are all now dead and  buried some six thousand years  a fact which should' relieve political  bores and rotten actors of any undue anxiety.     .  ���:--:-     . ; .-������" ;;. -   ��� -��� ��� . ...-j---���-. _ ...

The mountains throughout its entirei length and breadth,  , are almdst without exception mineral.ferous; containing gold, silver,������copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in .a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FORESlTAND IVIINERAL. WEALTH"  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessible to river arid railway.    There is scarcely a square mile of  ���it that is not either equipped with high tension  wires, or which could not be reached  , by the expenditure of the smallest outlay.     Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides,, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the adventof the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to "a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province. ~  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and a visit to some of Its spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger. The highways throughout the Boundary makes this"section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads.  No locality is better served with  railroads than  the Boundary district.    At  present this section is served by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.  branch of the former.  SYNOPSIS OF COAL  MINING REGULATIONS  Coal mining rights of the Dominion*  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the  Province of British Columbia, may be  leased for a term of twenty-one years  at an annual rental of $1 an acre. Not  more than 2,560 acres will be leased to  one applicant.  Application for a lease must be made  by the applicant in person to the  Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in  which the righte'applied fer are situated. :  In surveyed territory the land must  be described by sections, or legal sub  divisions of sections,, and in unsur-  veyed territory the tract applied for  shall be staked but by the applicant  himself. <  Each application must bo accompanied by a fee of $5 which will be re-  fuaded if the right* applied for are not  available, but not otherwise.

"The chief ,thing tod j in Canada  after the "war "is over," is the subject of a letter written recently by  Sir Donald Mann. Many here in  the Boundary are firm in the belief  that the chief thing to do when the  war ceases .would be to line up the  Canadian army along the Atlantic  coast and forcibly prevent any further influx of the scum of Europe  into the Dominion.  Every man who took a share in  the stock of the Vancouver Sun, or  who had anything whatever to do  with the management of the paper,  was required to sign a declaration  that under no circumstances should  anything appear in that newspaper  which would be in any way critical  of any Liberal candidate.

Preserving Game  According  to  an  amendment to  the  Provincinl Game  Act,  it is an  offence to  buy or sell (mounted or  otherwise)   the   heads,  of   wapita,  moose, mountain sheep and cariboo.  Several prosecutions under  this law  have occupied the  attention of the  courts  lately,   and  in  view, of the,  ignorance displayed  the authorities  are anxious  to  give   the matter as  wide a publicity as  possible.    The  only heads which it is lawful to buy  or sell are those imported into the  country,   and   even   these mdst be  entered at the game office and carry  the brand of the game office.   Therev  is a  tremendous demand for heads  in the east, so the necessity for such  a law is very  obvious  if the game  of this province, is to  be  preserved  from indiscriminate slaughter.  ��*K  DRUGS,DROGGISTS SUNDRIES, HIGH-CLASS  STATIONERY, PBRFUMBS, CONFECTIONERY  Agent for the famous Nyal and Na-Dru-Co Preparations.  r. s. quance  PHOENIX, B.C.  ecass  sae  tm  Church Services  ��� !���]��  W  First-class Fir and Tam-  arac Wood, $6.00 per cord  Pine Wood,  $5.00 per cord.
