Announcement is made from New-  York that the directors of the  Granby Smelting company have declared their regular quarterly  dividend of $224,000, payable June-  2, but the report creates no surprise,  as it was stated that at the time of  the resumption (, of disbursements  the company would opportion $1.50  :i share among- its stockholders  every 90 days.  The meeting of the directors was  called this time in advance of the  regular date, is President W. H.  Nichols is preparing to leave New  York in a few days for a , two  months sojourn in Europe: The  payment will make the disbursements for the current y��iar $448,000  and the total since dividends were  inaugurated $4,449,622. The last  dividend prior to the one paid in  March was $2 a share, dechired  December 30, 1910.  The 2000-*on daily - capacity  smelter being erected at Granby  Bay, B.C., by the Granby Smelting company, lo treat the ores from  its Hidden creek properties, will  bCcompleted and i�� operation by  next ,December, unless unforeseen  delays in the delivery of ' the  machinery and equipment occur.  The machinery will be shipped from  the different factories about Mayi,  and delivery on the ground should'  be made by June 15, allowing ample  time for the transfers-necessary,  at  from the tunnel " levels and the  stopes being opened have revealed  far better values than estimated  from the diamond drill   exploration.  The Bonanza properties lying two  miles from the Granby Bay smelter  site, which were taken under option  last May, is showing up much better  by diamond drill exploration than  was anticipated. A 45-foot vein has  been discovered by the drills, which  averages better than 2 1-2 per cent  copper. Yet exploration of the  ground has not been completed and  further important discoveries may  be expected at any lime.  The snowfall at the Hidden creek  mine during the past winter 'was  unusually heavy, but as such weather was anticipated, an allowance  was made (for it in the operating  schedule, and the buildings," etc.,  will be completed well within the  time agreed upon.   ��� ���j   Mining Notes of British Columbia  N. Chisholm of Ymir, has transferred his interest in the G'oodenough  fraction, the Damairscotta and Little  Nell claims on Wild Horse creek to  O. A. Lovell of Ymir. Trefle Boyer  of Vancouver, formerly of Nelson,  has sold to Mr. Lovell a one-third  interest io the   Damairscotta claim.  For a cash consideration the  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  company has purchased the* famous  Springer creek,  con-  Trie group  number of claims and is  *  the   north side   of  the  The Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Co.,  Limited.  NOTICE.  NOTICE IS HERBY GIVEN, that  at a meeting of the Board of Directors, held on April 17th, 1913, a  dividend of 1.J per cent, was declared  out of the net earnings of the company, payable June 2nd, 1913, to all  stockholders   of   record   at   3  p.m.  May 19th.  NORTHRUP FOWLER,  Secretary.  ���Boundary Ore Tonnages  Following are the returns of the  output of the mines and smelters  ofthe Boundary district for the week  Ottawa mine on  near Slocan city,  sists of a  situated on  valley of Springer creek. It is in  connection with Slocan city by a  wagon road. The mine workings  are about 1,000 feet above the'level  of the creek. For some years' the  Ottawa mine was one of the heaviest producers of silver in the Slocan  district. In 1904 the shipments  amounted to 1,330 tons, Hvhich  netted the smelter $120,000, which  was mined and shipped at an expenditure of $50,000, leaving an  actual profit on the year's operations  of$70,000.     ,  Fifty thousand dollars is the purchase price of the No. I and Daisy  claims, near Sanca, on which an  option has been secured by Angus  K. Stewart and John E. Smart of  Victoria from Charles Kuhn of  Nelson, through Arthur Wheeler,  Jr. of Victoria, according to ,an  agreement filed at the government  office. Under the ��� terms of the  agreement, $1,000 is to be paid   on  feef of good, clean coal, and when  Mr. Godfrey took measurements to  get an idea of the tonnage, these  figures showed there to be 12,440  tons to the acre, or 7,961,600 tons  to the section, and allowing for the  dip which the seam makes at the  present depth, these figures would  Le doubled, giving the enormous  tonnage of 15,923,200 tons to the  section, and from careful prospecting, this seam is known to underlie ten sections. Above this large  deposit is another good, workable  seam five feet in width. ^which adds  greatly to the estimated tonnage  Mr. Godfrey has had a great deal of  experience in coal mining in British  Columbia and in;the old country.  The Vancouver World states  that six holes have been bedrocked  on Johnson creek on claims 3 and 6  below discovery. They failed to  produce a prospect sufficient to  justify further work. Several bed-  rocked above discovery' were also  blank. Bedrock on Silver creek  shows very fine floor colors in  places, but there is no pay on these  creeks. The majority of the stam-  peders are returning to Altin. Probably a hundred and fifty are  remaining to prospect this summer.  These are gradually moving in the  direction of the Dease Lake watershed. The Carmack party is sixty  miles southeast of Silver creek.  .Work is being done on Moose Horn  creek,    but   the   prospectors     find  Police Court Case  Police magistrate Mulligan, on  Monday heard the application of J.  K. Mecredy ' to' have D. Deane  placed under bonds for using threatening language towards him, which  if continued, the complainant  thought might be followed by'vio-  lence to his person, Both the parties were represented by counsel,  the complainant being represented  by W. Black ol" Greenwood, while  Ernest Miller, M.P.P., appeared for  the defendant. The application was  eventually dismissed, counsel for  Mr. Mecredy stating that it Mr  Deane would promise to abstain  from repeating the offence, he would  not press the matter. This, Mr.  Miller on behalf of Mr Deane,  agreed ��� to. Nos witnesses were  examined.  During the progress of the case,'1  an interesting point of law was  put forward by Mr. Miller on behalf of his client, to the effect that  when one party threatens another,  and the subject of the dispute is a  title to land, the "assault" being  followed by a similar action as that  before the court on Monday, the  jurisdiction of .the magistrate to  try the case is ousted.

Large  orders for various modern machines  have already been placed and the  necessary enlargement of the building is expected to be shortly commenced. Among the additional  machinery contemplated are tbe  following: A Pratt and Whitney  turret lathe, one heavy engine lathe,  made by the Newhaven company,  a Kernpsmith's milling machine, a  universal grinding machine, one  small upright drill press and a cold  saw cutting-off machine. By the  installation of the above contemplated new equipment it will be  seen that the company intend to  keep well ahead of developments  not only at Anyox or here, but elsewhere as the opportunities for expansion present themselves. That  Phoenix is to receive a share of renewed activity is made patent by  the recent utterances of the company's general manager, J. P.  Graves, but what sjiape that activity  will take -is unfortunately left to  i conjecture.  /  to the.istea*T>sbipt*1>opt;rat*.p>tr between  jMother  Pu(,'et; .Sounrf  pomts_,, j*",1-1 ^,'-**-'rsVn'-*X  B-iV   *-' * S *  . will,be,turned ovct;, by v tjhe,? .railway I Granby  '    ***��*t   frfec t��t^nmu*ninu..nn��mt!nn' *n��.t\&.j>.����n    sMofcWCtf  Rawhid  Napoleon  Queen Victoria.

Copper in Demand  The current issue of the Boston  Commercial, which is unusually  well informed as to the copper situ-  tion, states that the metal is in  "good demand. Foreign consumers, either due to better banking  accommodation or the belief that  copper is to enjoy a sharp advance,  are coming into the market for  good-sized quantities of the red  metal both for near and far forward  delivery.  "European users of copper have  a smaller stock on hand at present  than for a long time and, therefore,  if the idea spreads that it is a good  time to lay in a considerable amount  of material, the available supplies  in the warehouses of Europe or refineries in this country will quickly  vanish.  American consumers are buying  in good quantity because business  slill continues active, but they have  not resumed the practice of anticipating their need for some time  ahead.  The mines of this country have  for some time been producing about  to their capacity and there is not  likely to beany considerable gain  from this source. In the meantime  consumption has eaten up the supplies which accumulated following  tlie 1907 panic and has kept pace as  well with the new production which  came with the development of the  porphyry copper mines.  The relation in fact between   pronation and consumption   is now so  close that the variation of  either  is  quickly reflected in the price   of  the |  metal. ���_  This fact was brought out in the  past few months. When the money  stringency became acute abroad,  consumers over there were forced to  forego their usual practice of stocking up ahead. The accumulation of  visible supplies which followed temporarily depressed prices and furnished the basis for many bearish  arguments. Recently the shutting  down of several important mines in  Mexico and abroad will result in  some reduction in production temporarily and as the buying demand  of Europe consumers has resumed  more normal proportions the price  has responded and will probably  still further advance.

At the West India Committee  rooms, London, the other day, Dr.  Percy Rendall described the visit he  made to the Kaieteur falls, in  British Guiana, in July last, and  illustrated the scenes through which  he passed and the waterfall itself by  means of a series of vivid photographs.  These falls, which Dr. Rendall  asserts is the world's greatest, was  discovered by- Mr. Barring ton  Brown when he was descending the  Potaro river, in 1871.

Ingenious Swindle  A   Toronto  gas company  official  told a good story the other day of a  new method of "beating"  a   meter.  Here it is:  "This was not an   electric meter,  but a gas meter and one of the type  known   as   'prepayment'jOn   this  type of meters a quarter is  dropped  into   a  slot when the gas gets low.  They,  are   used   a   great   deal    in  Europe and the States.    This one 1  speak of was installed in one of  the  smaller   cities   not   far   from   New  York.-' _ ���������'Vv"'7-'  VThe man who rented the:: meter  was known to be tampering with it,  and for a year the company were at  a complete loss to locate even a clue  as to his method.      '  "He would not put a   quarter   io  the meter and yet he   used   a  great  deal of gas.     The company changed  tlie  meter  almost  weekly   and   yet  they could not catch him.      In reply  to the questioning of the'company's  officials he would just reply ^hat the  gas did not give  out  and   that   he  would not put a quarter in   until   it  did.   '       ������   ������-. ' ���       :,';,.���,  The gas company threatened,  wrote letters', sent inspectors and  did many other things to get him to  turn from his method, but'all to no  avail. At last they made him a  proposition and offered him a sum  of money and a guarantee that they  would, not prosecute him if he would  show them his method. ���   _  "He took them at their word and  a'meeting was arranged in his basement, from his work bench drawer  He toolc^a steal mould.'and an ether  freezing machine such as used-.in  connection with certain applications  of the microscope.

The Hamilton Spectator submits  the following poser for Sir Wilfrid  and his colleagues to straighten out:  "If Sir Wilfrid Laurier is sg very  sure that Canada.can build her own  dreadnoughts,    and   ought   no't    to  think of having them   built in Great  Britain,   why. did   he' not  get   the  small  vessels   needed for Canada's  miniature  navy   built    in    Canada  when he had the chance?      He  was  in power from, 1896 to 1911. During-  that  period   the    following  vessels  were  constructed by   order  of the  department of marine   at  Ottawa,  for  use    in   Canada.      When   and  where they were   built' is  given  in  the list: Minto, at Dundee, in 1899;  Arctic, at Kiel,  Germany,   in 1901;  Druid, at Paisley, 1902; Champlain,  at   Paisley,     1904;   Montcalm,    at  Voker, 1904; Earl Grey, at Harrow,  1909; Simcoe,   at Wallsend,   1909.  Small vessels   are  quite  within  the  ability  of   a   young:   country    like  Canada to  kuild  and  equip.     It is  with   such   small   vessels   that Mr.  Borden proposes to allow Canadians  to   gain   experience   in the  art   of  naval construction.   If Canada could  certainly  build  such   comparatively  tiny and simple craft, why were they  built abroad?"  _^ ���**������*- *��>���* or no pa*--. *  DreKENNEDr&KQINEDY  tors Michigan Ave. and Griswold SL,  Detroit, Mich.  llflF^HOTf CE ���     tHlUtt%rS f2m Canad�� m*st * addressed  WW  ���' ���   W"^"      ^ our Canadian Correspondence Depart-  ^ in..Win.df��r, Ont.

When Dr. 'William Waugb.  chief surgeon of the Jefferson Park  Hospital in Chicago, said- that the  ancient and honorable practice of  wife-beating ought to be resumed  he was probably aware that he  would incur the' disapproval of the  woman's clubs. Indeed it is strange  that Dr. Waugh is still alive, but  the latest reports show that he yet  breathes and that his life may be  prolonged indefinitely if he can keep  out of sight.  And yet, a writer in a San Francisco paper points out, there should  be no .rancor toward this medical  luminary in Chicago. He wishes no  ill to women. He says that they like  being beaten, that they only need it,  but that they welcome it and that  a large amount of marital infidelity  could be kept out of the divorce  courts, could be avoided altogether  if husbands would only do their  duty with stick or strap.  Now it may be that there is  something to be . said for Dr.  Waugh and that he is not quite  such a son of Belial as he appear*-.  at first glance. Perhaps the women  really like to'be-beaten. It is certain that women are never aroused  to such a state of ecstatic sympathy  wife-murderer,   and the  ' timated cost.

Throughout  the exceptionally long winter, not a  week elapsed but saw some event  pulled off in the local rink or on the  ski course, but now that summer is  approaching unless some action is  taken there will be little in the  line of outdoor sport to while away  the time. .True, Phoenix possesses  a football club that promises to give  an excellent account of itself, and  we have the promise of a tennis  club, but to a large portion ofthe  community they do not offer so  much of an attraction as that  afforded by the work* of a good  baseball nine.  For some years past Phoenix" has  always been able to give a good  account of herself on the diamond,  and there is no reason whatever  why so fine a game should be  omitted from the Mimmer sports  the camp.
