IN 3 MONTHS  26^1 TONS  Granby Shipments Epr  . That Time.    ���  Shows Double the  Tonnage  Output Over J907.  I  For the first quarter of 1908, the  ore shipments from the mines! of the  Granby Consolidated in this camp total up to exactly 264,581 tons; "As  expected, the total for March is the  largest, not only in the history of; this  company, but for any coppej��;prpperty  i n the D6mini(jn of Canada, the: mines  having been operated at full Rapacity  and the entiireS battery of eight jblast  furnaces at the.company's smelter having been in blast every day and almost  every hour of the 31 days in that  month. Usually; in smelter practice,  it is unavoidable not to have some one  of the. blast furnaces out of commission  part of the month, at least; but this  time Smelter. Superintendent Wake  Williams was favored, there being no  car or fuel shortage, and most certainly  no ore sh rtage, as is well known.  For comparative purposes, we give  herewith the Granby ore shipments,  by months, for this year, as follows :  Boundary Side Lights  Greenwood's  next *sfession   of the  county court will be Held 'A pril 21 st.  January.  February.-.  March....  Total.  From   the  ��� ��� 74.203  ��� 80,155  . 110,223  .264,581  it  will be  tons  noted  above  that each month since the Granby resumed operations has seen fin increase  in  the output,   until the   month   of  March showed the tremendous total of  110,223 tons.  1; For further purposes of comparison,  we append  also the output of these  mines for the;corresponding months a  year ago :  .January..........   34,192  '"'.'February.'.-.'.......: 32,4.65  Msrch   63,826  tons  ���_> ^....Total:.^..-.... 130,483- _",./..t  From this it can be seen ���'that the  1908 shipments for the first three  months are more than double those of  1907. Of course, in 1907-^-aS Is well  remembered���-there was one handicap  after another, so that the company  could not and did not get the advantage of the high prices of copper then  prevailing.  The above figures , for this year  practically represent the Boundary  output thus far for 1908, only one or  two smaller mines having contributed  to the total.  Greenwood's assessnieht roll for  1908 is $523,380 for lar)d and $429,-  320 for improvemenrs. f !���;  W. J. Harber, who1 b^gan the publication of the; Boundary^ Creek Times  at Greenwood in 1896,���<< recently died  at Cumberland, England..;  Nothing new is known about the  Midway & Vernon' ''railway plans,  although Ralph SmaileSj ��� one of its  head promoters,, has been'in Greenwood this week from Seattle.  T. J. Graham, of Revelstoke, C.P.R.  tie inspector, was in the .Boundary a  few days ago, and made :tnany smile  by having a chance to get checks from  Treasurer Salisbury, of Vancouver.  Last week the first issue of the  Keremeos Trumpet, ;. an eight-page  weekly, appeared at the .town of the  same name in the; .lower Similkameen. , It is well printed, has a  healthy appearance and the editor and  financier is J. A. Brown. ��� \ '  Martin Burrell, ofyriGrand Forks,  gives it out unequivocally ��� that he will  not accept the nomination on the  Conservative ticket at- th^ forthcoming  Vernon convention to '{put up a candidate for the Dominion house.

One of the largest funerals ever held  in Greenwood was that of Mrs. King  N Rees last Tuesday. Mrs. Flood, a  sister of Mrs. Rees, arrived Monday  from Los Angeles with the remains of  deceased and the three motherless  children, the eldest only seven years  old. Rev. M. D. McKee, pastor of  the Presbyterian church, officiated at  the obsequies.  Mr. Rees, who has been with P.  Burns & Co., Ltd., for some ten years,  formerly lived with his family in Phoenix, and also at Cascade, Grand Forks  and Greenwood. Deceased was car  ried off by tubercolosis, and much  sympathy goes out to the bereaved  father and children from the many  warm friends of the family all over the  Boundary.  50 MILES AN HOUR  ON VICTORIA SPUR  Ore Train Ran Away Yesterday Afternoon.  Yesterday afternoon, employees of  the Granby mines at the Victoria shaft  bunkers, allowed five loaded G.N. ore  dumps���with about 250 tons of ore���  get away, and off they started. When  the runaways passed the Granby  stables, they caught a C.P.R. box car,  with a man therein unloading. Without hesitation the train sped on its  way down the three per cent, grade to  the tail of the spur, piling up in a  beautiful fashion, and throwing the box  car some 80 feet from the rails.  John Burke was the man who took  the lightning ride, and, strange to say,  he was not hurt in the least, with the  exception of a scratch on his head.  When the ore dumps struck the oat  car, it threw him from his feet and  closed the car door. By the time he  got the car door open to say something emphatic to the engineer for running so fast, as he supposed, he had  reached the end of the involuntary  run, and went up the bank with the  three tons of Alberta's best oats.  ymwviTrvirm  Fruit Ranch lor Sale  For sale, on Slocan river,  acres of fine fruit land  of   the  prettiest  spots  miles  from   post  10 to 20  This   is one  in   B.C.,  ij4  offiice,  school, and  C.P.R. depot;  and the market first-  class.

Next week Friday will be monthly  payday at the Phoenix mines, and  should be the. best since resumption  for those-mines that are at work.  ' Last week*copper in the world's  markets.had an upward tendency, being then above 13 cents per pound.  This week it is down a  fraction a^ain  The Greenwood-Phoenix syndicate  having a wonting bond on the E. P  U., near Greenwood, is now in about  865 feet in the long and deep tunnel  they have been driving for many months.  A' small force is working at the  Maple Leaf, Franklin camp, but getting in supplies is just now an impossibility, owing to ice on the rock slides,  over which the wagon road is built to  that camp.  This month each one of.the eight  furnaces,' separately, '��� at the Granby  smelter is likely to be out of commission for about ten days���while connections are being made with the new  steel flue dust chamber.  Granby shares have been steadily  climbing up of late on the New York  and Boston stock exchanges���and this  in spite of the company passing its last  two quarterly dividends. The stock is  now quoted between 90 and. ioo.  The gasoline hoist has been installed  at the Little Bertha mine, on the North  Fork, and sinking,-is -beginning, ..yrith  the intention of going to the 200-foot  level. This spring the full machinery  equipment, including a ten-stamp mill,  will be put in at the mine.  Rumois are still afloat regarding the  resumption of operations by the B. C.  Copper Co. and Dominion Copper  Co, but thus far nothing definite is  given out by the local officials of either  company. A higher price for copper  would help the situation not a little.  Now that Manager Hodges has accumulated a supply of some 15,000  tons of ore at the smelter bunkers, in  the course of the extra large shipments recently made by the Granby  Co., there will be somewhat of a let-up  in the extra heavy shipments henceforward. This supply will be kept on  hand in case of emergencies at the  mines or to the railway.  Mrs. Ida M Farsons, secretary of  the Alliance Gold & Copper Mining  Co., of Minneapolis, was in Greenwood  last week. It is understood she has  entered a suit in Spokane against Harry  H. Shallenberger for alleged misrepresentation to the company shareholders. The company owns the Moreen claim in Deadwood camp, a promising copper property. It is electrically  equipped, but has not been operated  of late. It is expected to resume this  month.  This week the Crescent mine was  closed and the dozen men employed  let out, Telegraphic orders to this  effect were received by Supt. Feeney  from the head office in Chicago. It is  understood that the plan of operating  the property is to be changed some  what, and that further instructions will  shortly be received. The property  sent out a carlot of high grade ore in  February, and another is about ready  for shipment, the property having a  most complete electric equipment.  R.

A. ....  Colonel Robert Tecumseh Lowery,  the sage of the bright Greenwood  I^edge, was calling on friends in Phoenix last Tuesday, appreciating the privilege of being in a camp where something is going on.  Mrs. G. W. McAuliffe and son Gus  left this week for their ranch on the  North Thompson river, not far from  Kamloops, where they will take  another step in hewing a home out of  the wilderness, the soil there being  excellent.  R. H. Stewart, manager of the mines  of the Consolidated Co., and bride arrived at Rossland on Sunday night.  For the past three months they have  been tra\elling in Europe, visiting  Great Britain and the leading continental countries.  Election Year Is Cause of Unsettled Conditions.  Killed By   Falling  Tree.  Wednesday afternoon Richard Bradbury a young man of 23 years, was  killed by a falling tree close to Greenwood, near the Phoenix road. In falling the tree kicked back and pinned  the young man against the stump,  death resulting instantly. Coroner  Black viewed the scene of the fatality and decided an inquest unnecessary.  Deceased came from England three  years ago, had three brothers in Greenwood, and was a member of the Methodist church and choir. He had been  employed at the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter when the works were in operation.    The funeral will be held today.  Death ol Samnel A. Mnllln.  Thursday evening Samuel Adams  Mullin passed away about eleven  o'clock at the PhoenixGeneral Hospital,  having had an operation for appendicitis about a week before. He had  delayed the operation for some days,  and was in bad shape, but the attending physician hoped for the best during the week, and he had gained a  1 little at times.  Mr. Mullin had lived in Phoenix  for nine years, and was consequently,  one of the old timers in this camp,  having been employed, up to a few  months ago, almost continuously as  the Granby mines as timberman. He  was born in Ottawa, and was 42 years  of age. He leaves a mother and ten  brothers and sisters, there having been  15 children in the family. The funeral will be held on Tuesday, Rev.  C. W. Whittaker officiating. Mr. Mullin had many friends in camp, and has  a brother here, Calvin Mullin, to whom  he leaves all his property, including  the Hotel Stemwinder, after providing  for his aged mother.

"The outlook in the copper market  is such that we are not anticipating any  material advance over the present quotations," said Jay P. Graves, general  manager of the Granby. Consolidated,  to a Spokane paper this week. ...'���    ,,'., .,.;.:.  "The prospects for an improvement ���  in the prevailing conditions are;' not'  bright. While the exact figures are not  yet obtainable the record of the Granby  for March will show that more than  100,000 tons of ore were smelted in  the month, the average being about  3600 tons daily. This ia the largest  tonnage of ore handled in any month  in the history of the smelter...; _.���.  "The ore is of a quality classed satisfactorily, paying, under favorable  market conditions. We;are making  some money, but not much, with copper at about 13^ cents a pound;���     -  "That we are able to operate at a  profit under the existing market .conditions is because of the large tonnage  and proportionate decrease in the cost'  of production. -���':������.���'���"���'���':'������   ������'"������;..  "The reduction in the price of- materials and the adjustment of the wage  scale make it possible for us to operate  the smelter at a small profit instead; of  having to let the plant lie idle at a loss./  There are fixed charges that have" "to  be met'whether the smelter is running  or closed. When not :in operation  these expenses represent a dead loss.  We might run the smelter at a loss and  suffer less financially than to keep it  closed down.  Elcctloa Year UatettlM TWi*iVr   J  "Unless there is a general resumption of activity in the lines that make  a demand for copper, which I do not:  anticipate in   the.,.; .immediate, futur^  copper will hot advance much in priceT;..  The extent of the demand for copper"  depends on the amount of construction'  under way in which the metal is used.  The installation of new telephone sys-,;  terns, electrical plants, railways and the  erection of large buildings are the chief  enterprises that figure in the consumption   of copper.    Just now   there  isr  little or no activity in   these  lines.  People are not investing in  new projects and only such extensions as are  necessary are being made.  "It is probable that business will not  improve generally to much of an extent until after the election. It is the  usual thing for business to be in a  more or less unsettled state during the.  year preceding the presidential election, and there is no reason to expect  that this year will be an exception to  the rule."  Francisco Cedio, charged with the  murder of Louise King, was brought  over from Nelson to Grand Forks late  last week, and before Magistrate Cochrane a true bill was. found against him,  and he was taken back to Nelson to  await trial at the May Greenwcod assizes.

The Slocan Star Company,  operating  near Sandon,   has encountered a  good   body   of   ore   on the Hidden _  Treasure.    Two cars of ore were ship- j  ped to  Trail  recently and two more'  cars are now sacked in readiness  The boards of trade of Lethbridge  and Macleod have both passed resolutions endorsing thej request of the  British Columbia lead miners, that the  Dominion bounty on lead, mined and  smelted in B. C, be extended.  In order to meet a pressing demand  of $210,000 against the Sullivan Mining Co., George Turner,, president of  the ��� company, in a statement issued,  asks the stockholders to submit to an  assessment on their stock of seven  cents per share.  R. G. McConnell, geologist, of the  geological survey, says he does not see  why plenty of gold should not be found  in the Findlay river district. There  are numerous streams, and the rock  formation, consisting of gneiss and  schists, is favorable to the discovery of  the yellow metal. Mr. McConnell was  in the district a few years ago.

In all walks of life Zam-Buk has found favor as the only pure and  reliable .healing balm.    It is found in the home (for no mother would be  without it)  in the workshop and in the soldiers kit.    Col-Sergt. Louis  Elliott, 3rd Co 46th  Battalion, Peterboro, Ont., bears testimony to this  for he says : �� Three months ago the lower part of my face, cheek and  chin, broke out in small red pimples  which later festered   and   broke,  forming nasty sores and dry scabs    The itching set up by these eruptions  and sofes was cruel and seemed far worse during the night     A 11 kinds  .' of soaps, washes and ointments were tried without relief.    Finally I   thought  of Zam-Buk ancl straightway procured a box at the drug store.    One night s  application brought great relief from  the intense itching, aud as  I  kept on  applying this  balm daily the inflammation was soon drawn out  and in less  > than a week's time the sores were thoroughly healed and every scab banished  leaving my face perfectly clear and  smooth, for which  I was very grateful  - t ' ��.����� ����.���;A��b m this T first tested Zam-Buk for the prairie itch which I  Three tins of Zam-Buk was  the fellow-boarder  I have the  utmost confidence in the  merits   of  Two years previous to this I first tested  contracted thro" sleeping with a fellow-boarder.  then sufficient to check and  clear it off my skin, while  failed'to use it, and in consequence was troubled all that winter.

From these endorsements, copied  from  "standard medical books of all the different schools of practice, it will be found  ' that the ingredients composing the"Gold-  en Medfcal'Discovery" are advised not  only for the cure of the above mentioned  diseases, but also for the cure of all catarrhal, bronchial and throat affections,  . accompained with catarrhal discharges,'  hoarseness,   sore  throat,   lingering,   or  hang-on-coughs,  and all. those wasting  affections which, if  not  promptly  and  properly treuted are liablo to terminate  In consumption.   Take Dr. Pierce's Discovery in time and persevere in Its uso  until you give it a fair trial and It is not  likely to disappoint.   Too much must not  be: expected of it. It will not perform  miracles.   It will not cure consumption  in its advanced stages.  No medicine wili.  It toOl cure the affections that lead np to  crmarampUon, if taken in tAnw.  The Copper Market Outlook.  The market for copper in the United  States depends fundamentally upon the  resumption of that class of business  which involves new structures, says  Mining Science. The consumption of  this metal through ordinary wear and  tear amounts to less than half the  normal demand���that is the normal  demand in a growing country like ours  and in a progressive age such as this  is. In a country which does not grow,  the normal demand ���' would, of course,  just equal the absorption through  normal tear and wear. 'Mr. James  Douglas has shown that about one-  third the copper is consumed in brass  wearing -parts. This demand is, of  course, a comparatively steady one, because it simply keeps up ordinary wear  and tear. One-third the demand is for  architecturul brass, bronze and structural copper. Of, this third, a part is  for renewals and a part for new struc  tures. The remaining third is for electrical equipment and the renewals in  this % line are relatively very small.  Thus we see that a .stoppage of new  business might readily decrease the demand by" 50%, and this is about what  happened during the last months of  1907.  ��� "Down East" the people are still  very blue and depressed and they are  afraid to move for fear of getting  nipped. The West on the oilier hand,  with true Western spirit, took stock of  the injury do'ne'by the financial blow  and finding it slight, promptly forgot  it, and went to work as though nothing  much had happened. There are those  who say that the pessimism and depression of the East will gradually  spread West, and that the -West will  see its hardest times this summer. We  are inclined to take the opposite view  ���namely, that the optimism of the  West will spread East and -drive dull  care away from the brows of our financiers.  So far as this country is concerned/  only a little improvement can be  looked for till the east gets over its fit  of the blues. The East is the seat of  the major consumption of copper, and  so long as it is out of the market the  American copper is a good deal like a  four-horse team with three of its horses  down in the mud. The fact that the  fourth horse is up ;and doing will not  work much advancement till all can  pull   together.    As  an  illustration of  Western spirit, it is interesting to note  tbat there are three electric lines now  building near Denver, and at Sheridan,  Wyo., a franchise is being asked for to  put electric cars on the streets.  ! Luckily our copper market is not  limited to the American demand, and  Europe in general, and Germany in  particular, has not felt the depression  as much as the eastern part of the  United States. Germany has been a  very large buyer of copper in the1  United-States markets during February  and March. The European buying,  together with the optimistic tone of the  West, are the two most encouraging  features of the copper trade.  , The large surplus stock' of copper  which was on hand last fall has been  entirely consumed, according ' to Mr.  John D. Ryan; according to others, a  large part of it has simply passed into  the hands of speculators and remains  a menace to the market. All the  Amalgamated mines at Butte have .been  reopened. Mr. Ryan states, that the  increased foreign demand together with  some resumption of building ,at home  justified - this step. The . '.'knockers"  have it that this move is simply to whii.  the Lake producers in line. The latter  group of producers went right along  producing copper when-<the .Amalgamated was closed down and was trying  to bolster up the marlret.'-so it' is'only  natural that there should be some' bad  blood, but we think no sane man, and  Mr. Ryan is certainly sane, would go  to all,the trouble and.expense of starting the Butte mines simply to whip the  I ake producers into line. The more  tenable theory is that Mr. Ryan means  just about what he says. There is a  little profit in 13-cent copper, and the  Amalgamated might as well get its share.  Looking beyond the immediate  future, the outlook for the copper  market is extremely good. The world  has increased its consumption of copper  about 5.84% each year since 1880. It  will keep on needing .an increased  supply of copper each .year and, ,of  course,* the price will have to be  sufficient to reward the miner for getting it out.  The average price of copper since  1880 has been between 14 and 15  cents, but as the copper. mines are  getting deeper and the demand increasing, it is probable that the average price will raise somewhat in the  future.  thb  daJH^  PUOMK  STUICTL.Y    FRIHII   KOCiH  J.

Many papers, have recently made a  note of the fact that the Bank of England has reduced its discount rate to 3  per cent This will be welcome news  to the country newspaper publisher at  large and may have a good effect on  this plethoric bank account.  ���*���  It is given out lint this summer  Foley, Welch & Stewart, the extensive  railway contractors, will have a force  of 12,000 men employed between  Edmonton and Prince Rupert, grading  the right of way for the Grand Trunk  Pacific railway. The statement explains, to some extent, what will become of the thousands who are intending to go to Prince Rupert this year,  and who are likely to land there broke,  expecting to pick gold nuggets from  the trees. Many of them may have a  chance to do some good, hard work  on the business end of a pick, shovel  or drill on the new transcontinental  railway, in order to be sure of eating  regularly.  ���������'.'-''.���.

Peck McSwain, the printer-poet,  philosopher and indefatiguable traveller, who spent some lime in Greenwood,  this last winter, has been gradually  working his way westwards with Prince  Rupert as his goal. He tarried a  while at Oroville, then spent half a  day at getting out the first issue of the  new paper at Keremeos, known as the  Trumpet, went on to Hedley, and then  sojourned at Princeton in the heart of  the Similkameen country, to assist the  Star in its twinkling. From that on,  the jumps are likely to be long and  much shoe leather will be used up,  but Peck will eventually turn up on  the Prince Rupert Empire.  MS  The following from the pen of Mr.  Dooley is not new, yet it is as well  worth reading twice as when it was  written.    But, of course, most Pioneer  readers do not require hitting on the  head with an axe:;  "Opportunity knocks at ivery man's  dure wanst. !0nsome men's dures it  hammers till it breaks down th' dure  and thin it goes in an' wakes him up  if.he's asleep, and aftherward it wurrks  f'r him as a night watchman.

That's being  a hypocrite, and a hypocrite is the  meanest thing in the world. That's one  thing you cannot say about a dog or  ahorse.
