Investor, Boiton)  On June 1 last this company resumed  operations with copper under 13 cents  a pound. The total production since  resuming has been something like 330,-  000 tons of a gross smelter value of  approximately 1,032,000. This gives  a value of about $3.40 a ton in all  metals. The profit was $235,000, or  less than 80 cents a ton leaving $2.60  a ton to pay all expenses of mining,  smelting and reduction to blister copper in the form it was marketed. Thrs  record is said to be unique on this  continent. About 75 per cent, of  Boundary ore values are in the copper.  Mining in.the huge low-grade Boundary veins has paid, but it has paid  because it has been done along the  most approved scientific lines. Since  resuming last June, the company has  paid off $170,000 of debt.  The report of the company for the  year ended November 30, 1908, shows  total receipts of $1,099,959, while net  profits amount to but $93,691. The  repott covers two periods, that of the  suspension of mining and smelting  operations for five months from December 1, 1907, to April 30, 1908 and  during the period of operation from  May 1 to November 30, 1908. During  the latter period the proceeds from  metal shipments were $1,086,635; pro  fits from ore sold etc., $13,324, mak-  the total receipts, $1,099,959. Deducting expenses, maintenance, etc., $899,-  475, there is left a profit for seven  months of $200,484. Deducting balance carried to general profit and loss  account, representing a decrease in the  market value of metals unsettled for  November 30, 1907, during suspension  of operation, and items in suspense  ($106,793) there are left.net profits for  the year of $93,691. The previous  surplus, November3o, 1907, was $176,-  041, making the total profit and loss  surplus $269,732.  The general balance sheet as of  November 30, 1908, compares as  follows:  *  E.. A.

The net profits from operation from June 1, when production  commenced, to November 30, were  $238,413, from which has been  de  ducted expenditure in reopening the  property during May, $37,929, leaving  a balance of profit of /operations from  May 1 to November 30, of $200,484.  The year has closed * with the mines  and reduction works in excellent condition, and the outlook for the current  year is satisfactory if we leave out of  account the  continued depression  in  the metal market.    As  matters  now  stand, the company has no debts, and  has An ample surplus in  its treasury.  It owns its own smelter and converter,  with a capacity of 2000 tons per day,  and it is stated that a five year supply  of ore is now blocked out.    It is now  producing over  i,ooo;ooo pounds of  copper per month, at a cost of 9.996  cents a pound, or at ai net profit, with  copper at 14 cents, of. something like  $50,000 per month, of which gold and  silver values average about 30 per cent.  The company has been producing copper for eight years past,  and during  practically all of that; time there has  been a good market for the stock, with  sales as high   as   $22  per share.    I  believe that it would be a good  buy  around 7, 8 or 9, and I would not be  surprised to see it selling at $12  per  share or better during the present year.  I certainly do not think that the  price  of copper will go much lower.    On the  contrary, the trend from this time onward should be upward, but while  I  would not care to say that the metal  will never again reach its high price  of two years ago, I believe it will be a  long time before such a figure will again  be attained. The highest price recorded  for copper in New  York   was   50 )4  cents in 1865.    The following year 42  cents was quoted, and  in   1872, 44  cents.    In 1885 it sold below 10 cents,  and from 1894 to 1897, inclusive, the  price was very low.    From that time  onward, with the exception of 1892,  the price had showed a steady advance  until 1907, when it sold at 26 cents a  pound.k  There seems to be a chance that the  British Columbia will buy or lease the  properties of the /Dominion Copper  company, which'-'is" ritiw-^being reorganized under the name of the New  Dominion Copper Co. The reorganization committee is asking authority of  the shareholders to sell the properties,  if such a course should deem advisable,  and as Frederick Keffer, consulting  engineer of the British Columbia, with  a staff of assistants, completed last November an examination of the Brooklyn and Rawhide mines of the Dominion, it looks as if there might be  something afoot. In fact, there has  been a good deal of talk in Spokane  as to the probability of the British Columbia securing a lease of the Dominion  properties, but no information is forthcoming from the management of either  concern.  DEVELOPMENT WORK  ON BRUCE GROUP  Midway Property Continues to  Improve in Appearance  The Donald Copper Co. are proceeding steadily with development work  on their Bruce group three miles west  of Midway, according to the Greenwood Times. These claims which are  situated on the bunch grass slopes at  an altitude of about 800 feet, and dis  tant three fourths_of.a mile from the  railway line, were located some years  ago by Wallace and Symonds, two of  the oldest old-timers at the prospecting  business in the Boundary country.  The assessment duties were regularly performed and the properties  in due time crown-granted ; when the  original discoverers disposed of their  holdings to S. M. Johnson, C. E., and  J. C. Haas, M.E., who last July bonded  the claims to the Donald Copper company, the services of Mr. Haas being  retained to superintend the work of  disclosing the ore bodies.  Two shifts under the direction of J.  D. G'aham have since that time driven  380 feet of tunnel, which owing to evidence of a movement in the formation,  has been turned to 60 degrees to the  south from a due westerly direction;  and gives promise of cutting into the  ore body in about another 100 feet.  A considerable amount of surface  work has also been done to the south  of the tunnel and tV���� 'oiriw_.workings,  which gives strong indications of a  large body of copper-bearing ore with  a N.E. and S.W. trend.  The general distribution of the ore  as shown in the surface cuts and  trenching, covers many acres in extent;  and when tapped by tbe tunnel at a  depth of about 200 feet should prove  the Bruce to be a bonanza property.  Assays of surface ore taken during  the present week show values in cop  per, silver and gold ; a picked sample  going as high as 25.5 per cent copper.  The new work has disclosed $10 ore  and has added greatly to the prospective value of the property.  r  Boundary Side Lights  Grand Forks will celebrate Victoria  Day.    ���  Greenwood spring assizes  on May 25th.

MINING IN THE  COEUR d* ALENES  ELECTRIC  LOCOMOTIVES  LABOR TROUBLES  SETTLED AT FERNIE  Will Be No Strike at the Coal  Mines  In a special edition dated Tuesday,  the Kernie District Ledger announces  that the agreement between the mine  owners and the miners as far as Fernie  and Michel are concerned has been  signed. A vote taken among the union  men at these two places resulted in a  majority of 169 in favor of accepting  the agreement at Fernie and 171 at  Michel. The ballot at Carbonado,  however, resulted in the agreement  being tu'ned down by a majority of 64.  The Ledger considers the result very  satisfactory as it settles the matter  finally for two years. The alterations  in the new agreement are chiefly in  favor of the miners and will enable  them to make more money at their  jobs.  The result of the balloting was received with delight at Fernie where  business of all kinds has been at a  standstill, and merchants have suffered  t-vcr since the first of the year as the  mine s and others have been holding  on tight to any ready money they had  for fear of a strike. It is now anticipated that the tension will relax, and  that with the spring rush the citizens  will be amply rewarded for the period  ol business stagnation.  At Phoenix and in the entire Boun  dary the settlement of the labor  troubles at Fernie and Michel is the  source ot much gratification, a str'ke  among the coal miners at these points  meaning m <ch to the mining industry.  Even the anticipated strike has already  had its effects in Phoenix.  Although the question has been  settled satisfactorily at Fernie and  Michel two other companies have with  drawn from the Western Coal Operators' association, the Maple Leaf company and the Canada West Coal com-  of Taber, and there is still the possibility of trouble in other places.  TO TEST SLIMES  TREATING PROCESS  New Mill for  Experiment at  Jewel Mine.  The first shipment of machinery  arrived at Eholt last week tor the new  mill now under construction at the  Jewel mine. The mill is being erected  by a syndicate to test a slimes treating  process, which should it be successful,  promises to revolutionize the present  method of separating gold from tailings.  H. Nichols, manager of the Ymir mine,  is the inventor of the new process, and  the Slimes Treating company, limited,  has been formed to promote its use in  camps.  It is expected that by the end of  May the new mill will be in operation,  when the commercial and practical  value of the invention will be demonstrated. The inventor and other members of the company are confident that  the tests already made assure the success of the process, but the new Jewel  mill will try it on a scale large enough  for all practical purposes. On the completion of a successful run in the mill  steps will be taken to place the inven  tion in other mineral countries.  Electric Coffee Mills  Morrin, Thompson & Co. have just  installed an electric coffee grinder.  The Hunter-Kendrick Co. also installed one recently The mill is a  neat and interesting piece of mechanism  operated by an electric m tor of diminutive power. A pound of coffee beans  can be ground in a very few seconds,  either coarse, fine or medium. Drop  in either store and see them grind your  next order of coffee.  W. G. Watson has returned from  Greenwood and is again assisting at  the local power station.  Knlghls of   Pylhlas Dance  The local Knights of Pythias lodge  has made arrangements for its eighth  annual ball, which will be given in  Miners' Union hall on Easter Monday,  April 12th. The committee in charge  are putting forth an effort to make  the dance eclipse any previous event  of its kind, with special features that  will ensure an enjoyable evening.  Great Nur.bcrn Introduces Them on 1;�� Mom-  tain System  The completion of four big electric  locomotives for the Great Northern  railway marks a new event in the history of electric traction in America;- as  it means the use of the three-phase  system for heavy traffic work, as well  as the first attempt to handle the entire  traffic on a main trunk line with electric power.  The Cascade tunnel, in the heart of  the Cascade mountains, Washington  on the Great Northern main line, is  2.63 miles m length, and the intention  is to operate all passenger and freight  trains through this tunnel, as -well as  in the two yards at each end of the  tunnel by electric power. The plan  consists of the development of a water  power of 7,500 horsepower in Tum-  water canyon. The power plant is  located on the Wenatchee river, about  three miles west of Leavenworth, and  the electricity is transmitted about  thirty miles to the tunnel.  The approximate cost of the work  is $1,250,000, and it will be the first  attempt to handle freight on heavy  grades with anything but steam locomotives.  Jobn Mclooes Returns from Coast  John Mclnnes, M.P.P., returned  Monday evening from Victoria, where  he had been attending the British  Columbia Legislature. He addressed  a largely attended meeting of local  citizens in Miners' Union hall on  Thursday, touching on political issues  and discussing the Socialistic movement and its advantages. James  Carson presided over the meeting.  Mr. Mclnnes is as yet undecided  whether he will take up residence in  Phoenix at present or return to the  coast. Mrs. Mclnnes is still in Victoria.  Prince Rupert Rumors  There is a rumor that the sale of lots  in the Prince Rupert townsite may be  still further postponed, but this is  hardly likely, since no definite announcement is made. If the sale is to  be postponed, either the Government  or the G.T.l*. should have said so by  this time, for people will De on their  way there for the sale on May 1st, as  announced. If the sale is be held in  Vancouver and Victoria, intending purchasers will doubtless visit the towsite  to see how the ground lies, for without  a knowledge of the topography of the  townsite one might buy something not  wanted. .,  From Print Shop to the Farm  Elmer Hall, who in company with  W. B.Willcox, established the Phoenix  Pioneer, and after selling out had had  a varied experience at newspaper work  at different places in the United States,  has returned to this section of the domain and acquired a tract of land near  Bosburg, where he expects to go into  the fruit raising business. He moved  his family up fiom Spokane this week  and will establish his home on his  newly acquired estate.���Orient(Wash.,)  Journal.

The Carney Copper Looking  Better than Ever    '  J. L. Martin returned Monday evening from a week's trip to Spokane and  the Coeur d'Alenes. He reports Jihat  while mining operations are quiet",  general business is very good, and  mining men are confident that the  Coeur d'Alenes is entering upon the  most promising period of its history.  The past 20 months has been the  hardest term known In which to se  cure funds for development purposes,  since the panic and labor troubles of  the nineties. Many of the companies,  he said, have struggled through the  paniky times and kept their properties  working in a modest way, and the results have been telling.  The ore chute enteied on the thiid  level in the Stowstorm is phenomenal.  [ They have eleven feet in width, mid up  to last Monday, about 60 feet in length,  of black sulphide copper ore, averaging  about 15%, with some gold and silver.  The Carbonate Hill which was put on  the market about fifteen months ag'<  by an ad. stating that "It joins the  famous Carney Copper group of claims  on the west," is now  in nine feet of  concentrating galena, .ore,   much   of  which   could   be sorted  to  shipping  grade.     The    Reindeer   tunnel   will  reach its ledge within sixty days, and  if a good body of ore is developed it is  predicted that  the Stevens  Peak  district will be the centre of great excitement and unusual activity.  j; Asked  as to the Carney property, :  Mr. Martin  said? 'Our property has  not operated since the annual meeting  in    December.    Our   annual    report  showed that we had done more than'  600 feet of work last year on the 425-  foot level in tunnel No. 2, that we had  crosscut both the copper and -galena  ledges and found  them  well  mineralized, and that almost solid iron  was  drifted on for some  distance  in   the  galena ledge.    The object of my visit':  was to levy  an  assessment, which we  did, of three mills.    As soon as this is  paid, the outstanding  accounts settled  and  the heavy snow  gone,' we" shall"  take steps to let another contract and  resume development.   I piedict a great  property of the Carney.    It is in better  condition than ever before.  New 'FiaMai RegfcUtroaa  This is the time of year  knights of  the rod   should   take   heed   to   the  changes in the   Dominion  regulations  regarding fishing.    Trout   fishing does  not open until May   1st this  year, m-  j stead   of   March   25th   as   formerly.  Another  new   regulation-  is   that   no  trout weighing less than three pounds  can be bought, sold or exposed to sale,  and all   trout   under  eight  inches in  length must be returned to the water.  British Columbia Mlotaf Shares  British Columbia mining shares are  looking up in the east. H. T. Goodeve, is in receipt of the following letter  from Robert Meredith & Co., leading  mining brokers, of Montreal: "During  the past week or so, there has been a  good deal more inquiry for stocks of  mines in your province. If at any time  you can send me any news or information about the mines we sjpall be glad,  as it will probably help to bring about  some business."���Rossland  Miner.  Golden Eagle Ships Ore  The Golden Eagle property oh the  North Fork, owned by a Vancouver  syndicate, snipped five cars of ore last  week, and it is expected will soon become a regular shipper. The shipment amounted to about 150 tons, and  the ore averaged over $20 per ton.  The only other shipment recorded  from the Golden Eagle was in 1907,  when 60 tons were shipped. Some 18  men are now employed at the mine.  Latest Prices in Meials  Nuw York���Copper, electrolytic, $12-  50 & $12.75; lane. $12 87 @ $13.12.  Bar Silver, 50*4  Lead, *4 07 @ $4.10.

Blau's modus  operandi, is as follows: Crude mineral  oil-is. distilled in ,retorts, under low  temperature,-and a! gas is obtained;  this issubjected to a pressure of 1440  pounds' to the' square inch and becomes  liquified,the liquid being then stored  in cylinders of various sizes and distributed to-consumers by weight When  in use5 the cylinder is connected1 to a  small reducing valve, and the pressure  within the cylinder being reduced the  liquid .again.- expands into gas and as  such; isf> transmitted throughout the  house for-factory through minute tubes  or ordinary' gas pipes, and used for  ligh'l ing, heating or cooking.  As an illuminant it is used .with a  mantle, aibeautiful white light being obtained.1 l,3?orrcooking it is especially  useful^ as' it''is'threetimes hotter than  coal gas, and for this reason it is largely  used for heating in the technical world,  such as soldering, welding, riveting, etc.  The important feature among its advantages is its non-explosibility, which  makes the gas safe for use; on account  of the absence of carbon monoxide, or  dioxide,- the gas is also non asphyxi  ating.  As climatic conditions do not produce any deleterious effects on the gas,  and.tHe gas does not freeze, the miner  inther wintry Yukon or the rancher  in the windy middle west, should find  a great boon in this invention. As  crude mineral oil is the substance used  for the evolution of Blaugas, the cost  of same will be minimized consider  ably. ' Blaugas has also been successfully used as power.  It is already being used successfully  as an illuminant on railways, steamships, and for domestic and commercial purposes, and bids fair to revolutionize present means of illuminating,  heating and cooking.  Dr. Lewis gave a demonstration of  tbe new illuminant at the Hotel Brooklyn on Friday evening in the presence  of & number of local businessmen and  proved its efficiency. Two 20-candle  lamps of Blaugas gave a more brilliant  light than the 80 candle electric lamp.  The cost of Blaugas, it is claimed, would  nor lie f.alf that of other lights.  the construction of dwellings, store.1-  and other buildings at large, outside of  the 49 leading cities, where wood is  usually preferred.  '"Ashcroft, the Gateway to Northern  British Columbia," is the title of a  handsomely illustrated Dooklet published by the Ashcroft Print company.  It is brim full of valuable information  concerning the resources of Ashcroft  district, as well as Cariboo, Quesnel,  Fort George, Buckley and Nechaco,  the famous interior districts to the  north, to which Ashcroft is the gateway.  .Lord Strathcona writes the Canadian  government that he is anxious to take  part in the good work of training the  youth of the Dominion, and makes a  giftof $250,000 to encourage physical  arid military drill in Canada's public  schools.  ;With. the opening of spring many  virgin miningdistricts In the west will  feel the effects of the prospector's pick  and the tread of the hobnail boot.  It is claimed there are barrels of  money in the east ready for investment  in legitimate western mining enterprises.  ' -, Copper Situation Shows Improvement  ��� A dispatch from Boston says that  sentiment favoring better prices has  appeared in the. copper, market, with  the result that whereas the metal was  obtainable in some quarters last week  at 12^5 and i2# cents it woufd be  impossible to buy now at less than  12^4 cents for electrolytic for any substantial amount.  An agency handling over 1 00,000,-  000 of copper a year, through one of  its officials says: "There has been  manipulation pure and simple affecting  copper prices. It has been the 'shaking down process' so well known in  Wall street methods, applied to a  staple commodity. Copper is in no  different position yet prices have been  advanced. It is simply an endeavor  to loosen up weak holding if they  exist."  According to a dispatch from New  York the advance in the price of copper metal in this country and abroad  is due to speculative buying of the  character in evidence in the latter part  of February and early part of March.  Quite a large quantity has been taken  for export. However, there has been  no buying to speak of by actual consumers.  It is figured that within the last  month European speculators have taken  at least'75,000,000 pounds of copper.-  The belief prevails that offerings of  speculative copper on any sharp rise in  prices will be large.  Further assays have been made on  the showings from the Summit group  at Sheep creek. Large samples from  the six foot ledg?, the main ore body,  figured out at $20 gold, eight per cent  lead and five ounces silver, making a  total of $25 per ton.  kVood h ��?till the leading building  material, even in the larger cities. The  annual building records of 49 leading  cities of the country show that of the  permits issued therein 61 per cent were  constructed of wood; and the remain-  injs.-39iper.cwit were of Ore-resisting  materia!* ta�� account being taken ��af  SHAKE THEM IN  BOTTLE TO MIX  Readers Should Try This  for Kidney or Bladder  Trouble  Mix the following by shaking well  in a bottle, and take in teaspoonful  doses after meals and at bedtime :  Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half  ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;  Compound Syrup Sarsaj arilla, three  ounces. A local druggist is tbe authority that these simple harmless ingredients can be obtained at nominal  cost from our home druggist.  The mixture is said to cleanse and  strengthen the clogged and inactive  Kidneys overcoming Backache, Bladder weakness and Urinary trouble of  all kinds, if taken before the stage of  BrigiU's disease.  Those who have tried this say il  positively overcomes pain in the back,  clears the urine of sediment and regulates urination, especially at night,  curing even the worst forms of bladder  weakness.  Every man or woman here who feels  thai the Kidneys are not strong or act  ing in a healthy manner should mix  this prescription at home and give it a  trial, as it is said to do wonders for  many persons.

Bu.ttr's Philosophy.���  Resolved, that all dishonesty is in the  same class, lying, stealing or wasting  youi employer's time. The man who  takes advantage of another man in a  business deal is a thief. The man who  misrepresents his wares or his prices  is a thief. If he does these things, and  then goes to church he is a hypocrite.  The worst punishment the hypocrite  can receive in the next world is to  stand and look his own conscience in  the face. Brother you are playing with  fire when you are dishonest and you'll  get yours just as surely as the night  follows the day. Yes boys, honesty is  the best and only policy. When you  are dishonest, boy, you are just cheating yourself, your own soul���sounds  silly, eh ?    Don't take a chance.  P. T. Barnum said, "I owe my success to printers' ink"���think it over,  and give the Pioneer a call.  C'j^.-'W^-.'.'..'-'..'.-'.-.'. ���  mem-  Skin troubles  YOUR   SKIN   REFLECTS  YOUR   HEALTH!  UST as your skin is, so is your  health. If the pores of your skin  are not acting properly, tho wastes  of your body are not getting away  as they should, and this means that  your kidneys, liver, lungs, and heart  have to lake on extra duty. Your  shin requires periodical cleaning,  just as the housewife knows that the  stove requires periodical shaking  down to make it burn brightly.  Just at this season, pimples, face  sores, eruptions, scrofulous diseases,  and    eczema,    are    very    common  because the winter has thrown extra  work on to the skin, and in many  cases the skin lias been unable to do  this extra work.   .Zani-Hnk is a skin ,-  tonic.

Ross wish  through the Pioneer to express their  thanks to those who have been with  them in their bereavement, and by  kindly acts tried to lessen the sorrow.  W. B. Willcox, the former editor of  the Pioneer, who, with his wife and  daughter, has been residing on a fruit  ranch at North Yakima, Wash., has  taken up residence in Spokane this  'week.; . ��� r'y  April 26th will be the ninetieth  anniversary of the founding of the  Independent Order of Oddfellows.

Mr. Lofgren is making a trip  through British .Columbia" interesting  prospective students with the advantages of the Coeur d' Alenes institution.  Mis. H. F. Libby closed a deal this  week for the purchase of the property  on Dominion avenue occupied by the  photograph gallery. -. The .former  owners were Miller Bros , of San Francisco,- who resided in Greenwood some  years ago.   ..-.���>./       ...���/.   Harry Nash of Molson, Wash., was  in camp this week calling on old  friends. Mr. Nash was one of the  early settlers in Phoenix and'built the  first hotel here some twelve years ago.  He is equally familiar with the early  days and pioneers of the Similkameen  and Cariboo districts.  There promises to be an exciting  rugby combat on the local football  field in the course of a few weeks.  Teams representing England and Wales  aie now preparing for the conflict and  several rounds of material are under  summons to appear oh the line-ups at  the call of the bugle.'  There are two ways of spending a  dollar. You can spend it at home,  gain an easy conscience, make another  friend and perhaps get the dollar back  tomorrow, or you send it away, feel  that you have sinned, offend the home  merchant and forever lo-^e the dollar  and the blessed influence for good to  yourself and neighbor.  In the report of the city council pro  ceedings in our last issue, referring to  the new legislation requiring hotels to  have thirty bedrooms for the accommodation of guests, we should have  stated that the Summit hotel, con  ducted by Messrs. Oxley & Hartman,  has the full complement of thirty  rooms, as well as the Brooklyn and  Dominion.  Tbe Hard Times'  Ball  The Fraternal Order of Eagles held  their annual hard times' ball on April  1st.���all foolsday. Asusual in former  years the ball was one of the social  successes of the season. A large crowd  gathered at Miners' Union hall on  Thursday nightr and indulged in the  terpyschorean art until the small hours  of Friday morning. Big Gene made a  first class floor manager and King and  Strutzel orchestra supplied all that was  necessary in the way of music.  A notable feature was the parade of  the Phoenix F.O.E. band before the  dance. Headed by Capt. Smith, as  drum maj.jr, the band paraded in front  of the Miners' Union hall, where Capi.  Smith announced that alihough they  had only very little practice the band  would play the overture to "William  Tell." The applause was sufficient to  make the band seek fresh pastures or  anew. Opposite, the Brooklyn hotel  the band played "Scotsman Born" with  Jimmy Marshall as soloist.  Coming back to the upper town  Drummer Galer peforrned wonders on  the snare drum (because he couldn't  blow the trombone any moie). Opposite the Balmoral the select piece of the  programme was played, a selection  from '-Faust," ananged specially by J.  A. McMaster, which elicited vociferous applause.  All this shows that when the F.O.E  plan anything they carry it out with  all success that is possible.  The storekeeper who does not advertise and who does not systematize his  business might as well put up his  shutters. Judicious advertising means  financial success. Never in the history  of the commercial world has advertising  occupied so dominant a place as it  does today.
