C. Copper  Companies  Since the close-down of the Domin  ion Copper mines last fall, the properties of both the Dominion andiBritish  Columbia Copper companies have  been inspected by three prominent  New York financiers--Adolph Lewis-  ohn, J. Parke Channing and J. H.  Susmann���who, through the General  Development company, are. credited  vvith endeavoring to bring about a consolidation of the two Boundary copper  producers. .  The General Development company  is becoming more and more aggressive  in the mining field, particularly in the  various copper camps. The company  is a close corporation, of which Adolph  Lewisohn is president, J. H. Susmann,  treasurer, and J. Parke Channing,  consulting engineer. Among the few  stockholders are representatives of  some of the largest banking institutions  in the country. The company is capi  talized at $2,600,000.  A late acquisition on the part of the  Generel Development company has  been the Keystone company, located  near the Miami, an option on which  has been held for some time by Mr,  Susmann of the General company,  while a large block of the B. C. Copper stock was acquired by Mr. Lewis-  ohni a few months ago. ;>  Below is a partial list of properties  in which they General Development  company are known to be interested :  Stock Shares,  B.

McMillan, managing director  of the LeRoi Mining company, returned to Rossland last week from  London, where he had been making  financial arrangements to carry out a  plan of exploration and''development.  'VThevdirectorSaQfvtb^yC  McMillan says, have succeeded in  making such financial arrangements as  will enable a large and comprehensive  scheme of exploration work to be car  ried on. Some of the details of the  scheme have yet to be settled, but;1  speaking in general terms, it is the intention to sink the main shaft a few  hundred feet further, and to do a large  amount of diamond drilling, so that  the mine can be thorougly prospected  to a depth of about one thousand feet  below the present 1,650-foot level.  Work will also be carried on in other  parts of the mine, but it is realized that  future developments are of paramount  importance. A number of men have  already started work and more will be  put on from time to time, when the  preliminary work in getting the machinery in shape, and the shaft in working order permit of this. Shipments  of ore5are not contemplated at present.  PYTHIAN SISTERS  INSTALL OFFICERS  Enjoyable At Home on Thursday Evening:  The big bore into Phoenix hill from  Greenwood has reached the 250-foot  point.  The Golden Crown mineral clairn  in Wellington camp is being advertised for sale.  M. E. Jeffery, M.E., formerly of  Greenwood, is in charge of the Silver  Cliff mine at Cobalt.  The Granby company ;are constructing a large trestle work for the dumping of waste west of the No. 2   tunnel.  George E. Cole, for some years on  the engineering staff of the Granby  company, has accepted a lucrative  position with a Cobalt company.  The six enlarged furnaces at Granby  smelter are now operating in full blast  and new records in smelting ore may  be expected any time. jFurnaces No.  7 and 8 are now under reconstruction.  A carload of rails arrived at the  ^Golden Eagle on the North Fork during the past week for use in the development work. Assessment work is  also being done on two adjoining  claims.  The Granby company have constituted a wagon road from the Gold  ! Drop outlet to the Monarch claim,  primarly for the purpose of conveying  a hoist over the hill to be installed between the Gold Drop and Monarch  workings.  A strike of native silver is reported  to have been made at the Fife mines  during the past week and the property  is being looked upon as a probable  shipper in the near future. Lindsay  Crossen is at present erecting mine  buildings for the company.  It is reported that a deal was closed  yesterday by the B. C. Copper company for the purchase of a claim adjoining their Jackpot group, in Wel-  ington camp, from D. Oxley et al.  The property is being secured for the  location of mine buildings, and for its  water supply, not as a mining prospect  That the British Columbia Copper  Co. will invest money in Kamloops  camp is now beyond the state of per-  adventure. The reports of the investigating engineer have, it is understood,  been received with favor though further  [prospecting work.will.be, done..before a  definite step is taken.���Kamloops  Standard.  Charles W. Drysdale, a graduate of  McGill with degree of B.Sc. M.E., has  been honored by Yale, being appointed  as fellow there with an allowance of  $200. Mr. Drysdale is well known  here having spent all of last summer  and several weeks of this year as assistant to O. E. LeRoy in the geological survey of Phoenix camp.  .  Two weeks ago the Vancouver News-  Advertiser published a statement that  "the amalgamation of the Dominion  Copper and the British Columbia  Copper companies had been definitely  And Line Will be Rushed to  Completion  Information has just been received  from an authoritative source that the  "dirt will be flying on the grade for the  new spur to Wellington camp before the  end of this month, and that the construction of the road will be rushed to  completion.  The big steam shovel of Contractor  Tierney is now working on a filling-in  contract for the C.P.R. east of Cascade, and as soon as the work is completed there, the outfit will come direct  to Phoenix to commence operations on  the new spur.  It is further stated that the contractors will continue the grading of the  road to Central camp, but owing to the  difficult nature of the extension it will  not be completed until late next summer. The estimated cost, of the. railway to the British Columbia Copper  company's Lone Star mine in Washington is from $200,000 to $300,000,  but the road will'probably be bonused  by the mining company.  A number of- C.P.R. officials arrived iri their private car Lethbridge on  Tuesday lo make further investigations  in connection with the line. ,  Boundary Side Lights  ���*-���t-t��� �� .  ,     -  announced from the east," which has  been  copied   into   many   exchanges.  This statement is a shade previous, no  such merger haying yet been con sum  mated.    However, the  announcement  may not be far put a few days hence.  Further development work is to be  commenced on the Buster and Alaska  Fraction on Wallace mountain, owned  by the Alaska Mining company. There  is already a 35-foot shaft on the property, and a lead of native silver has  been uncovered. Five assays of the  ore ran from $153 lo $334. The  property is in the same high-grade belt  as the Sally, Duncan and Rambler and  A Lacky Phoenician  The eyes of the continent may be  said to be fixed on Vancouver, which  today givas promise of becoming the  Liverpool of the Pacific coast. To be  the owner of forty acres of choice  property bordering on the city limits of  -North Vancouver may well be the envy  of both the capitalist and the real  estate, vendor,, and to have become  possessor of such acreage, almost by  accident, for the nominal disbursement  of $i 00 gives an idea of the hidden  fortunes which lie in wait for those  borer under the lucky star.  Whether John Pickthal of Phoenix  was really born under a lucky star or  not, the Pioneer files do hot state,  though evidence is rather conclusive.  Fourteen years ago Mr. Pickthal  loaned a friend $100, who later gave  Mr. Pickthal a deed of 40 acres of land  in lieu of the cash. The land is Jn the  Capalino district of North Vancouver,  and the growth of the city must soon  force the property to become city lots.  Mr. Pickthal has been besieged with,  fancy offers ~fdr~~His "holdufg," and^only*  this week refused an offer of $40,000  from a Vancouver realty firm. But he  is too optimistic of North Vancouver's  future to part with his holding at  present. '  Dr. MacLean Goes to Greenwood  Dr. J. D. MacLean went to Greenwood on Thursday, where he will re  side and piactice his profession. His  departure from Phoenix is a matter of  general regret among all who knew  him. A capable physician, a public  spirited citizen, affable and genial, Dr.  MacLean enjoyed a large practice during his two years in Phoenix, and he  leaves a large circle of warm friends  who will wish him success in our sister  city. In Greenwood he will be  physician to the B. C. Copper employees, and will be assisted by Dr.  Arbuckle, who arrived from Vancouver  on Tuesday.  After business proceedings of Phoe  nix Pythian Sisters lodge on Thursday aa ^^     evening, the members and a number of gives promise of being  enlisted   with  invited friends participated in   a very the shippers in the near future.  FR.ESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES ARRIVING DAILY  eave Your Raspberry  Orders   nr This WeeK  enjoyable evening at progressive whist,  the tables numbering a dozen or more.  The usual interesting contest for high  score resulted in R. J. Gardner and  Miss Hyslop getting away with first  honors. The real rivalry of the evening, however, centered in the race for  booby prizes, a full half dozen being  tied at the finish, but Miss J. McKenzie and G, Kay were victors in the  draw. Cards were followed by the  serving of ice cream and cake, and the  evening concluded with dancing.  The new officers of the Pythian  Sisters for the current term were in  stalled by Mrs. J. Marshall, D.D.G.C.,-  as follows: M.E.C., Mrs. W. A.  Pickard; E.S., Mrs. R. J. Gardner;  E.J., Mrs. J. Bateman; Manager, Mrs.  S. Reed; P.T., Mrs. K. Silverthorn;  O.G., Mrs. A.

I  speaks well for the Carney, in whicl  so many Phoeffix people are interested  to be classed among such properties a  Black Horse, Black Fraction and H  E.

Copper company's smelter  had been blown in, but General Manager J. E. McAllister stated that the  smelter was in readiness and would be  in operation in a day or two. The  Mother Lode mine has commenced  shipments, and the ore is now arriving  daily at the smelter bunkers. As soon  as the forces at the properties can be  properly organized it is the intention of  the company to  smelt   2100   tons   of  i*5��% C0PPer ore Per <JaV* About 60  men are now employed at the smelter  and 160 at Mother Lode.  R. P. Williams of Rossland,   representing tne Canadian Rank  company,  was in   the   city  for a  few  days this  week.     Mr. Williams has  just   sold a  30-drill Rand  air  compressor   to the  Nicola Valley Coal & Coke company,  at Middlesboro,   which   will   be built  and installed in About   three   months.  The company is outputting about 400  tons   of coal   per day at present and  when the compressor  just   ordered \x  installed, 1,000 tons a day will be ex  traded.    'The coal is first-class and i*-  finding a ready   market, its   chief ust  being for domestic purposes.  Electric Smeltlii*-*  Dr. Haanel, of the mines branch ol  the Dominion government, will in a  few days issue a report favoring lh>  treatment of ores by electricity in Can  ada, as a result of observations madt  in Sweden and elsewhere. Dr. Haane  is convinced that the cost of sucl  -reatment of ores in Canada, owing ti  '.he amount of water available, wouk1  loe less even than in Sweden.  Arm and Leg Badly Fractured  Yesterday  Charles Taylor was the victim of a  serious and perhaps fatal accident  yesterday morning, which occurred at  the new trestle being ' constructed for  the dumping of  waste  from   Granby  mines. ... ,  The route for continuing the trestle-  work was being cleared, and a crane,  operated by a hoist, close to which  Taylor was standing, was being used  to remove a small building. The  strain of the cable was such as to overturn the crane, taking the unfortunate  man with it lo the ground, a distance  of about eight feet.  Taylor sustained bad fractures to his  tight leg and left arm, as well as internal injuries, and is at present lying  in the hospital in a serious condition.  He is a young man of 25 years, and  was employed as a carpenter's helper,  and has been with the Granby f~-  about a year and half.  The supreme court sits at Greenwood on Oct. 27th.

RECORD YEAR AT  THE TRAIL SMELTER  Five  is  - The road from Phoenix to the  city I  cemetery is at present in bad shape  and demands the prompt attention of  government authorities.

This return is all the more  worthy of note because of the fact that  throughout the year metal values have  been exceptionally low. With prices  where they were a couple of years ago,  and they are now trending that way,  the smelter returns for the past year  would have .Deen much higher even  than they are. In the face of the  market conditions, however, the returns for the year are $77,500 above  those for the previous year, the figures  for which were away ahead of those for  any other year.^  One of the most gratifying features  of the year's returns is the large output  of the company's electrolytic refinery,  which totalled $2,700,000, or nearly  half the company's total product. This  figure, satisfactory though it is, would  have been .much larger were the  capacity of > the refinery - such that it  could have handled all'the lead*bullion  produced by the smelter during, .the  past three months. This it was not,  with the result,tha^ during' April' and  May 2,000 tons of bullion were sent  out of the country for further treat-'  ment, and a corresponding; amount  during June. The company, however,  already has plans under way for largely  increasing the capacity of the refinery,  and when these have been carried into  effect, the necessity for sending any  any lead bullion out of the country will  be obviated, and the company's production of 999 pure gold and silver  and pure lead greatly increased.  14 Killed;. 102 Injured  In a head-on collision on the Inland  Empire railway at Lacrosse,-one mile  west of.

What I say will  be as I view the question from a  citizen's standpoint ?nd not as one  interested .in the local watei supply  company. The first three y-aisith-  water company was in business there  was no d'fticulty in having a  sufficient supply of water from the  natural walls ot Maishall lake. Bai  since the forest has been cutaway  from the New York townsite, the company has been compelled to increase  the s.orage capacity of the lake at least  ioo per cent, while the same amount  of water was pumperJ daily at that  time as now. This proves that laying  waste to the forests, in some r manner,  exhausts the supply of water from the  mountain spiings. Certainly it is ;a  great public trust to protect the forests  surrounding Phoenix, and every citizen  should cheerfully respond to the cal!  of the provincial authorities to fight  bush fires.

Its action has been remarkable at  times in restoring some patients who  bad given up all hope of recovery.  But there is nothing strange about  Peruna's action.

" >  MR. P. BRIEN, 28 Third Street, Limoilou, Quebec'  Vne fatigues entailed by my duties as accountant began to weaken my  system about a year ago.   I felt that I would not long be able to withstand  the severe strain upon my nerves, as, a thing unknown to me before, I would  long for office hours to be over in order to rest.   .  "I gradually grew weaker&xxd a few months later my sight was impaired.  I then broke down completely and was obliged to take to my bed." I was aloo  suffering from palpitation of the heart. _,  "After a few weeks' treatment by a local physician, I was ia the'same  critical condition and as the doctor held out no great prospects for me, I decided to experiment on myself.  "I took several remedies advertised aB tonics, bntdid notderlve any benefit.  "Peruna was then given a trial, and before I had taken it a week I felt my  condition improving. After a few weeks more had elapsed, during which  time I followed the directions carefully, my shattered^ nervous system became firmer, my sight stronger and I hoped to be out soon again.  "My expectations were realized, for in three weeks I assumed my duties  aa accountant at the office. r  "Peruna certainly worked wonders on my system, -nd for persons rundown from overwork, I believe it is the most efficacious tonic."  Kidneys and Liver.  Mr. George E. Hess, 1611 Broadway,  Supervisor ���' of the 2nd District Water-  yliet, N. T., writes:  "It is bat just to you to acknowledge  with thanks the great help I have received from the use of -Peruna.' Two  years ago I was a sick man. My kidneys and liver were ontof order, and the  pain in my back and head was at times  so severe that I was obliged to give up  my, work.  "At this time a club friend of mine  spoke to me of Peruna, and induced me to  try it. The effect it had on me from the  first was most remarkable; I knew at  once, that I had secured the right medicine, and was entirely cured in. ten  weeks."  Distress After Eatlnl. -  Mr. J. W.

Before X would get  half through my ��� meal my stomach  would .fill with gas, causing me much  distress and unpleasant feelings for an  hour or two after each meal.:  "But, thanks to your Peruna, I am  now completely cured, and ean eat anything I want to without any of the dis-  tressing symptoms.

Stevens  <  _6, Sheidkm Building, Houghton :  Mich., U.S.A. >  The Co mini Building Material  Concrete is composed of cement,  sand, and fine rock or gravel. Its  manufacture is as old as the Roman  Empire, but it is only of late years that  Portland cement has been known; and  that the wonderful combination ol  cement and steel���reinforced concrete  ���has become an important factor in  tuiidingoperations, especially.in supplanting structural steel. So far as the  supply is concerned and likewise the  value of concrete as a building material, its position as a competitor of stone  or as a supplement to stone in building operations is in most instances unassailable, while the reinforced concrete beam and column have, in the  opinion of many engineers, great advantage for certain purposes over steel  framing. The constituents of concrete  are not only unlimited in quantity, but  they are widely distributed, so as to be  cheaply procurable in every section ol"  the country; and when properly made  it seems to be not only the equal, but  in many respects the superior, of the  very best building stone, excepting  probably the question of appearance.  Moreover, it is useful in a score of  ways where stone and brick cannot be  economically employed. Sand and  rock or gravel are, of co 'rse, present  in every state in the Union in absolutely inexhaustible quantities, and the  materials for the manufacture of cement are only slightly less widely distributed and plentiful-��� G.
