C. One of  TJie great drawbacks to m>riing in  this region is the fact that shipment  must be made to one of two smelters, namely, .Tacoma or Trail. If  the ore is sent to Tacoma the heavy  duty of 1 Js cents per lb. must be  paid on the lead contents, while if  .-shipments are made to Trail the ore  must face a heavy freight rate on  the C.P.R. from Vancouver to the  .smelter. The lead miner is therefore between #thc upper and,nether  millstone, and the, estal?Hshmeiit.,of  a lead stack at Granby bay will provide a welcome 'relief. The chief  engineer of tbe Granby visited the  Portland Canal district-in 1911, b.ut  we do not believe tbat .he visited  Salmon river; perhaps, it would be  welcome 'jf an agent of the company word to( make an inspection  of the really extensive" showings of,  the Salmon' valley, because it is  probable thai the .heavy shipments  of the future ,will. come from the  lead mines of that section.'���Port-  land'Canal Miner.

Mr.  Smith  left  for  the   return   trip  on  the  1st   inst.,   the   patients   health  seemingly    having  ' underwent     a  change   for   the   better,    but   Mr.  Smith had   only been  a  short time  in    town     when    a     wire    arrived  announcing his father's death, which  took  place   on  the  7th   inst.      Mr.  Smith, senior, was 86 years of age  at the time of his death, and prior to  \1889, when he retired, was with the  manufacturing firm of Bliss, Fabyan  and   Co.    He   is survived  by  foui  sons   and    two   daughters:    O.   B.  Smith,   of  Vancouver, B. C;   Geo.  H. Smith of Holyoke,'Mass.; F. O.  Smith,    Cleveland,  ��� Ohio;     Chas.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE  BRITISH COLUMBIA COPPER  Directors Contemplate Another Bond on Voight's Camp���Smelter  treats 740,589 Tons of Ore, Yielding: 11,146/811 lbs. of Copper,  142,025 ozs. of Silver, and 25,862 ozs. of Gold���Mining  and Smelting Costs Again Reduced.  According to the annual report  of the acting manager of the Bt C.  Copper company, just submitted to  the directorate, the company's smelter at Greenwood treated/ 740,589  tons of ore, of which 443,022 were  derived from the company's properties, while the balance was.custom  ore. '  This amount of ore p'roduced  11,146,811 pounds of copper, 142,-  025.06 ounces of silver-and 25,862  ounces of gold, the whole giving  an  aggregate value of $2,483,663.  The yield in copper, gold and  silver for the past year is less per  ton than for any year in the history  of the plant; the#cost per ton for  handling, ect., are lower than for  any year. On account of the low  yield the cost of producing copper  per pound is 12.85 cent, notwithstanding the very lo*v handling  costs.  The net results of operations-  were $425,885.40, the largest in the  history of the company, from which,  during the period covered by the  reports, two dividends, Nos. 4 and  5, were paid, aggregating $177,512.  During the fiscal year, the company paid on account of new properties and in their exploration and  development $229,489, because ,of  the great importance of supplement  ing the ore reserves of the .pdm^  pauy^and - in. furtherance ..of   the  groups of mining claims in British  Columbia and in the adjacent parts  of the United States were examined  by our engineers. This work  resulted in the bonding of The  Eureka Coppper Mining company's  property, near Nelson, B. C, and  of a group of mining claims .on  Copper Mountain, near Princeton,  B. C, known collectively as the  Princess  Group. On   these   two  properties exploration is being  vigorously pushed by both hand  work and by diamond drilling,' with  generally favorable results to date."  Much exploration was also done in  Voigt's camp on Copper Mountain  with fairly successful results. The  bond on this camp wa* allowed to  lapse, but negotations are now in  progress for renewal. Among - the  groups examined are three other  of much promise, which it is planned to explore during the coming  season.  At the Mother Lode mine the  transverse stope method of mining  has been followed throughout the  year, and has proved most successful in extracting the maximum  quantity of ore at a minimum of  cost. The tonnage shipped is the  greatest for any one year in the  history, of the mine, and the cost of  crushed ore f.o.b. cars at the mine  has > been the lowest, namely, 36.58  'keeping- befbre'the powers , that be  the various.claims of his constituency  and- the splendid appropriation  granted, is earnest * proof-of Mr.  Miller's persistency in   this  respect.  Laid to Rest  The funeral'service attending the  interment of the late Jas, Stalker,  who died on Thursday, April--3rd,  .took place on Sunday last. St. Andrew's Presbyterian' church, where  the service was held, was crowded  to the doors, among the many present being a deputation from the  carpenters of the union, consisting  of Messrs. A. Lachapelle, Wes.  Connell, Thos. Boileau, D. Ryan,  and D. McDonald, who with F. H.  Harbinson, acted as" pall bearers.

These' reserves are sufficient to  serve all needs for many years to  come. The machinery, plant and  aerial tramway '��� have been maintained in good condition. Through  delays in receipt of machinery and  by reason 'of further alterations  found necessary in the mill, it was  late in v September before all the  problems relating to the treatment  of the ore .were finally and- successfully solved. The ore milled  was 6,483 tons. On account of  the increased expense of mining and  milling oxide ore in the winter  season, it was decided to close the  mill until the spring of 1913.  The Queen Victoria mine situated  nine miles 'west of Nelson, was  purchased in November, 1912.  The ore is an. altered limestone  similar in self-fluxing properties to  the Boundary ores, but carries a  higher percentage of copper. The  mine is equipped with an electric  driven compressor plant, and it is  connected with "the Canadian .Pacific  Railway company by an aerial tramway.  B.C.

It is over  one hundred feet wide and about 25  feet deep. s  Miners arriving in New Hazel-  ton this week from the Rocher de  Boule say the men working in the  breast of the long drift havesopened  up another big shoot of 20%  copper. They state that there  is two feet of this solid ore in the  face and rapidly widening, showing  exactly the same characteristics  as the 110 feet of ore drifted on  in this lead which averaged about 4  feet solid chalcopyrite. The so-  called barren spot in this drift  averaged about three per cent,  copper and only existed for about  twelve feet when the new ore was  encountered. Surface indications  above this new strike show an  average of about six feet of ore ��� on ���  the surface for a distance of about  200 feet further toward the west  line.���Omenica Herald.  Two men who came down the  trail last week from Silver creek  report that J. Fuller, owner of the  No. 11 below discovery on Silver  creek, have reached bedrock after  passing through five feet of gravel.  They took out coarse gold to the  value of 15 cents a pan, which is  considered good pay.

Princess Maud  claim, Red Eagle claim, Triangle  Fraction, all in .Princess Camp,  B. C.; Eureka group, Queen  Victoria group, both near Nelson;  L. H. group, near Silverton, Riverside group, on North Fork Kettle  river; Copper Mountain district,  B. C, and Greyhound mine, at  Deadwood camp.  On the last two very extensive  explorations were conducted, but  further development was, for the  lime being, abanded.  Indications     arc      that     in     the  Princess   camp    the    company    will  develop a copper mine  of considerable extent and value, and the work  still    in    progress   is    intended     to  establish   the   extent   of ore   bodies-  and the method of their   treatment.  It   appears   the   products   of these  mines   can   be   successfully concentrated and,   if  so. profitable   transported to be treated at the company  smelter.       The    exploration    work  under way at the close of the   fiscal  year will be  continued.  The   company   during   the  under reveiw has added to its  ings of New  Dominion   securities���  bonds of the par value of $238,675,  costing $122,249.25.  During   the  year,   twenty   three  year  hold-  mined   out   during-   the   first   seven  months   of the   fiscal   year,   and in  June the   mine  was   closed   for the  time being.    There   is a large  area  of unprospected   territory   included  within   the company's   holdings  in  that  camp, but  owing- to extensive  prospecting in other localities it was  thought   best   to   postpone    further  operations at the Wellington until a  Jater date.  , The Lone Star   and   Washington  Mine  was  operated   in  June,   July  and August only, on account  of the  refractory  nature   of the  ore,   but  little   could    be   smelted    directly.  Working- tests on large   lots of the  ore, using  ordinary  water  concentration    method    did     not    prove  sufficiently   succsssful    to   warrant  the    erection   of    a    concentration  plant.     We  are,   however,  making  tests   on   other   lines,   which so far  have proved satisfactory,   and   lead  to the expectation that   the problem  of    successful    concentration    and  elimination of the   refractory constituents  of the  ore   will   shortly   be  solved. The    300,000    tons    of  developed ore on this property,  comprised within less than seven  per cent, of its area, together with  its comparatively hig-h grade, make  the ultimate solution of the problem  of treatment a most important  matter.  The 17,118 tons of sulphide flux,  shipped from the Napoleon mine  during the year were of better  grade, both as to gold and sulphur  contents, than for a number of  years.

Bowser in ' addressing the opening of the new Conservative club in Vancouver, last week,  defended the action of the govern-  ment in cancelling the old voters'  list and declared that this was done  as a result of Liberal criticism which  the government had deemed it wise  to meet in this way.'  After touching on the naval ques  tton he went on to pay his respects  to the Vancouver Sun. That paper  had criticised him on the ground  that he had first sold out his business interests in a cannery and then  passed legislation inimical to 'the  canners, the said legislation being  on the matter of boat ratings.'  Mr. Bowser attributed the sale to  his partner. He had' not the controlling interest. It had, however,  left him.free to legislate without  being subject to the insinuation that  he was interested in the business.  The fishing industry, he said, had  passed from the white man to the  Japanese.  The wiping out of the Japanese  monopoly and 'the restoration of the  white fishermen could not be accomplished in a day.    ' It was being  both in favor of laying down a  state-owned Atlantic ��� cable to  connect with the Pacific Cable  company's line tp^London. The  government did not intend to let  this scheme rest. '  The government intended to encourage naval aviation, and a force  of flying experts would be founded. A large number of powerful  wireless stations, are also included  in the government's scheme.

Treaty Restricts Jap Immigrants  The second reading stage of the  bill by which Canada gives her  adherence to the treaty made between Great Britain and Japan in  1911 was passed and later discussed  in committee.  Premier Borden pointed out  where -the measure differed from  the one of 1904 to which Canada  gave adherence in ��� 1907. The  Japanese government, said the  Premier, would give an assurance  that the existing arrangements regarding restriction of Japanese  emigration to Canada would be  adhered to.  Hon. W. T.

We  have heard of the. great difficulty  lhat the Sun has had in getting: subscriptions -for its stock. We were  told that the gentlemen-who, took  shares in that paper were all led to  understand that if they did so they  would be allowed to express their  views in its editorial columns freely.  From the knowledge we \have of  some of,them we can readily1 understand the great joy it would be to  such . men to see themselves in  print.- (Laughter.) I understand  there is now a source of great diffU  I culty. amongst * the . directors ��Vn .settling the question of ���whose'editorial  shall be printed first."  "On   many occasions, I   believe,  there have  been   scenes   in the Sun  office, and on one occasion, I understand, they had  even to  call in the  police.      Well, all I can say is, that  trom the  color of  those   editorials,  coupled with the facts  in regard to  the  difficulty   in   selling   the    Sun  stock, I   am   forced to believe that  Japanese merchants must have been  induced   to  buy  stock in the Sun,  and that these editorials were written in  support of the Japanese fishing industry in British Columbia."  Dominion's position was guaranteed  under the terms of the treaty.  H. H. Stevens of Vancouver followed Hon. Dr.. Pugsley, who  criticized the new agreement and  said that Hon. Martin Burrell has  literally swallowed himself. Mr.  Stevens retorted that Japan had  agreed to restrict immigration as  early as in 1902 as the result of  acts passed by the British Columbia  legislature. The' Lemieux agreement, he declared; only dealt with  a temporary influx of Japanese.  cases, these have 1>een found upon  investigation, to have been simply  excuses to those who wish to trap,  but in a majority of instances, the  complaints were found well founded,  and trapping permits accordingly  issued,    the   invariable    conditions  being   that one-third, of the  realized from the sale  of  the  i  should  S��  to the government,  price  pelts  As  the provincial "stock of beaver is  now larger than necessary, it Is  .intended that trapping shall' be  again allowed when the present  order-in-council of the provincial  government expires on November  15 next. , ,  Laugh and the world laughs with  you; weep and you weep alone.

I   I" hum i ��  Progressive Australia  Prime Minister Andrew Fisher of  Australia delivered the first policy  speech for the Labor government's'  electioneering campagin recently.  He was given an enthusiastic reception.  References to the Australian navy  were widely cheered by ��� the premier's audience. He declared that  one battleship, three destroyers,  two submarines and one submarine  mother ship were to be immediately  built, in addition to the vessels now  under construction at the naval  bases and dockyards.   ���-..<;���.���'  Without any qualifying, the  premier declared unhesitatingly that  the new protection party's policy,  was most desirable, as it would  encourage Australian industries  without leading ��� to a sweating of  the people in point of hours and  wages. He further declared that it  was most important that the people  should agree "to the "government's  proposals to ..amend the constitution  in-order to clothe'parliament with  further powers which were absolutely necessary for successful  government.  He   favored   'uniform  of    Agriculture    has  receipt^   of    numerous  inquiries as  to where it  might be  possible to purchase either Angora  or  Milch  goats.      It would appear  that in many parts of the Dominion  the  demand   for  these  useful  aud  profitable animals is rapidly developing" and that those  who  at  present  have any  surplus  stock  can find a  ready   sale for  them   if a channel  of communication   between - supply  and  demand   is  established.

Williams has  reported to the Attorney-  General's  department   that,  owing  to   the  season   for    beaver    being  open last year and   the  number  of  pelts placed  on  the  market  large,  it was deemed advisable to declare  another close Reason  until  November 15th next.    An exception  was,  however,   made   in   favor   of   the  Indiaus  on  the Stikine,   Liardand  Peace rivers. . While, it was well to  be on the safe side  it  appears  that  the number of beaver trapped  last  season   was  by no   means   larger  than the supply warranted.

The professor is neither an  alarmist, nor a sensationalist,.and  if he,would have us cut loose from  some of our mental moorings, at  least he gives us substantial reasons  for a change of opinion.  If war should come, says the  author, it will be due, not to the  ambitions of rulers or the machinations of diplomats, but to the restless excitement of the new democracies. The peoples of Europe are  tasting a fuller measure of power  than ever before. Without actual  experience of war they are beginning to look upon it as a vast adventure, a sort of national frolic, an  opportunity for romantic heroism  to be welcomed rather than abhored.  The stirring of the great popular  masses has , called into existence  a swarm of newspapers devoted to  the easy task of flattering the public passion and of persuading those  who know nothing of government  that no art is more easily or successfully exercised. On the other  hand, the men who were once  leaders of opinion, the men of  trained sagacity and experience, are  withdrawing altogether from public  life and devoting themselves to  other matters. Power, in other  words, has been transferred to the  bands of the masses, and},the war  fever is apt to" run through them  like fire through stubble.  .Professor Ferrero- seeks his first  example in his own country of Italy  and here, at least, he should be.on  sure  ground,  Lauder's Talk of Separation  "This dependence will not always  last. Even now Canada and England have many different interests,  and the day will come necessarily  when they will have to part.".���The  aforementioned words were uttered  inl89l by Sir Wilfrid Laurier in  Boston.  The dawn   of that  day   of which  Sir Wilfrid   talks about will   be  a  sad   one  for  the   English-speaking  population    of this Dominion,   but  for  the   French-Canadians of Que_-  bec every anniversary will be replete  with   memories   of the most  bitter  description, for  on  that  day which  severs the ties that  bind   us   to the  old  land, the  old   treaties with the  British government which for scores  of years have been the mainstay and  guardian   of the   special   privileges  enjoyed   by ' the    French   speaking  people of Quebec will cease  to be a  fact.    The  clause,   "To the clergy  are.reserved all their ancient rights  and privileges"   will become a very  back   number,   and   the   church   of  which Sir Wilfrid is so distinguished  a son, will   be   placed   on  the same  level as  all  other denominations in  the   province   of Quebec.     The Ne  Temere decree, as  far as Quebec-is <  concerned, will  have no more effect  in that province   as the  message of  President Wilson   will  have  on the  people   of Arabia.      The   authority  of the   Roman Catholic   church   to  collect tithes and  invoke the aid of  the secular courts   to that end, will  go by the board on  Canada's Independence Day.    The French language will cease to be heard in debate  in the   halls of our parliament, and  finally  the  soldiers   of Canada wilt  never again  be allowed  to form an  escort for any  church   dignitary or  function.    This is  what separation  will   do  for  Quebec.     Perhaps  Sir  Wilfrid   looks   for   an   independent  province in Quebec, but  better men  than Sir Wilfrid  ever^ was or ever  will be, once tried that game to the  south of us with  disastrous results  to  themselves and followers.    Quebec, more than any province   in the  Dominion, will  be the biggest loser  by separation.-  SECRETS OF HOME UFE  Statements made by patients taking the New Method Treatment   Tfcty faww it Cms  BET" No Names or Testimonial* used without written consent  CONSTrrtJXIONAI, BLOOD disease.

MOVING MACHINERY OUR SPECIALTY  government, he says, were very re  luctant to make war on Turkey,  but the people and their newspapers  insisted. The king was practically  told that he must give way or abdicate, and now as-a result of a  democratic mandate we have the  Balkan war and all that may come  in its train.1  Germany is another case in point.  Whatever we may think of the  German emperor, it is an incontestable fact that he has falsified all the  sinister predictions^ made of him  and that for a quarter of a century,  Germany has heard no shot fired in  anger. But how long will the emperor be able to stand between his  country and war? Professor Ferrero says tliat "he loves peace  more than his" people, whose criticism of him is that he will not  squander their blood and treasure!  but wishes at all costs, to save the  one and the other!"  There is no need to multiply  examples. The masses, wc are  told, have the same warlike propensities that .they have always had.  The present generation has hardly  seen war and therefore has glorified  ��� >il into a sport and crowned it with  a halo of romance. And the present generation can do what their  forefathers could not do. They  (have all the powers of peace and  war. They are articulate, enfranchised���and irresponsible. The  author does not profess to predict the outcome, but "if the time  should'come when organized armies  should be no more, but when whole  peoples armed with fearful instruments of destruction should hurl  themselves upon one another���the  very thought of it would   be appal-  I ling to us.     Yet no less serious does  I the possibility appear  to the eyes of  ; many Europeans.1'  pie reason underlying the encmii-  agement being not so much the  improvement in shooting as it is the  knowledge acquired by the soldier^  of the surrounding country while on  their hunting trips.

The Globe editor  must be a student of the news  columns of his own paper.  A Wonderful Discovery  An eminent scientist, the other day,  gave his opinion that the most wonderful discovery of recent y$ars was the  discovery of Zam-Buk. Just think! As  soon as a single thin layer of Zam-Buk  is applied to a wound or a sore, such injury i8 insured against blood poison!  Not one species of microbe has been  found that Zam-Buk does not kill!  Then again. Ab soon as Zam-Buk*is  applied to a wound or to a diseased  part, the cells beneath the skin's surface are so stimulated that new healthy  tissue is quickly formed. This forming  of fresh healthy tissue from below is  Zam-Buk*s secret of healing. The tissue thus formed is worked up to the  surface and literally casts off the  diseased tissue above it. This is why  Zam-Buk cures are permanent.  Only the other day Mr. Marsh, of 101  Delorimier avenue, Montreal, called upon the Zam-Buk Co., and told them  that for over twenty-five years he had  been a martyr to eczema. His hands  were at one time so covered with sores  that he had to sleep in gloves. Four  years ago Zam-Buk was introduced to  him, and in a few months it cured him.  Today���over three years after his cure  of a disease he had for twenty-five  years���he is still cured, and has had no  trace of any return of the eczema!
