At $1.02 per  share this '.stock isj cheap.���G. L.  Walker, Boston Commerical.  Tunneling has commenced on the  Golden Eagle, -on jthe North Fork,  where three shifts are at work. Sufficient ore is expected to be taken out  to pay for the tunnel.  The B. C. Copper company's  smeiter treated 13,901 tons of ore  this week, as follows: Mother Lode,  10,165 tons; Oro Denoro, 3,209 tons;  other properties, 527 tons.  The Dominion , Copper company's  smelter treated 3,458 tons of.ore this  week as follows: Brooklyn, 968 tons:  Rawhide, 1,834; Sunset, 621; Mountain Rose, 26; Athelstan 9.  During July 59,82 i;tons of ore were  treated ar!"the B/ C. Copper company  smelter, or a daily average 2,087 tons.  The highest tonnage'in 1907 was made  in the same month, but amounted to  only'47,798 tons.������  A contract for '200 lineal -feet of  tunnel work on the Lauretta, in Franklin camp, by J. Morrell and S. Bon-  nacci, who own a group of 14 claims  in that vicinity, has been let to Bruno  Ferdinante, at $12 per foot.  Mother Lode mine has been shipping some exceptionally fins ore during  the past ten days. It is chalcopyrite  with either magnetite or calcite gangue  and will run hi^h in copper. The ore  body was encountered after breaking  through the hanging wall on the. 400  foot level and is entirely outside the  main ore body,  Charles Biesel, superintendent ofthe  Snowshoe mine, arrived from Rossland  on Wednesday and is organizing the  forces for the resuming of operations.  Mr. Biesel states, however, that the  general employing of men will not  begin until the coke situation improves.  A few men have been started cleaning  up and getting the property in shape.  The Humming Bird, a well-known  property on the North Fork, is being  taken up by New York capitalists.-  There is a shaft of about 100 feet, and  100 feet of tunneling has also been  done on the property. Charles Harri-  gan, who had a six-month's lease,  shipped 487 tons to the smelter some  time ago, and is said to have realized  $26 per ton, after paying $3.50 per ton  for hauling and $4.50 for treatment.  "The Cost of Diamond Drilling in  the Boundary District," is the title of  an exhaustive examination of the ex  perience of the results of diamond  drilling carried on at the mines of the  British Columbia Coppei Co. between  January, 1906, and August, 1907. The  article is published in the Mining  World, and is written by Frederic  Keffer. In 1906, 3,002 feet of drilling  was done at an average cost per foot  of $1.67, and in the seven months of  1907, the number of feet drilled was  3,667, and the average cost $1.72.  I'he average cost for the entire peiiod  was $1.70^ per foot, and one caret on  the average drilled 111.9 feet.  Bush fires in the Fernie district on  Saturday were fanned into devouring  flames of fearful destruction tc life  and property. The fire swept over 100  square miles, the town of Fernie being  swept away and Hosmer and Michel  narrowly escaped the same fate. At  least 35 persons perished in the flames  and a' conservative estimate of property destroyed is placed at $5,000,000.  Sawmills with immense stocks of  lumber have been burned up together  with valuable standing timber from  which they cut their supply. Railway  bridges, depots, cars and other prop  erty ol the Canadian Pacific and the  Great Northern railways have been  swept away. The Crow's Nest Pass  Coal company and the Pacific Coal  company have aiso suffered a considerable loss. At Fernie a number of  the buildings and a portion of the  plant ofthe former company were destroyed, and at Hosmer the mine buildings, except the hoist and ten cottages,  were consumed,  The refugees were taken to Hosmer  Cranbrook, Moyie and Nelson, where  they were given every possible attention. Generous donations are pouring in from all sides to aid the sufferers  7000 people from Fernie being rendered homeless.  11URN1NG_0F FERNIE  A writer from ..Cranbrook gives the  following realistic description of scenes  at Fernie:���  A more complete destruction'��� cannot be immagined than that which!  overtook Fernie. on Saturday evening-*  It is off the map, a blot of smoulder-  i tig-turns.. - - Your,,. correspondent,_.went,  up there, on one of the Cranbrook  relief trains on Saturday night and  saw what he writes with his own eyes.  Cranbrook has   fairly   risen   to   the  occasion of a  terrible  calamity,   and  with us _uuu HI'a"t'cally desti-  "Somethln. Good to Report."  A letter from C. 1). Miller, secretary-  treasurer of the Carney Copper company, of Mullan, Idaho, to the president of the company, J. L. Martin,  contains the above statement. The  etter says: "The north crosscut has  entered the iron ledge several feet. It  runs well in iron ami carries gold, silver  and copper. Samples are being tested;  the returns and samples will be sent  you as soon as received. Mr. Carson  (superintendent) is greatly pleased and  says: "You need have no hesitancy in  quoting me as say inn, 'the Carney is the  best thing in sight.'" Mr. Martin has  promised the Pioneer a detailed statement as soon as the assays and samples  are received.  tute people. T might say that rro  all points outside aid is coming in  most generously. All credit to Spokane, Nelson, Rossland and gallant  little Moyie.  The fire originated in certain of  smoldering bush fires that'for the past  month or so have been lurking around  the timber limits of the Cedar Valley  Lumber company. Twice it was supposed that"the rain had got the best  of the fire, but the tornado of Satur  day woke up the energies of the  slumbering terror, and woriced wide  flung ruin in the path of the terrible  wind, a wind <;ucn as never was known  in Fernie. It was thought that no  danger existed early in the afternoon,  but later on the fire got started and  whipped out on what is known as the  Goat ranch. From that to the old  town, where the pest houses used to  be, then split apparently, one side taking the mills and lumber of the Elk  Lumber company and the other making leaps of four hundred feet at a  jump right into the centre of the business district.  By all accounts the premises of P.  Burns & Co., were the first in the  business section to go. Then thc  Catholic church, and then the whole  city was in the grip of destruction. j  With the fire there was a hurricane  filled with radiant heat. Such was the  force of the wind that men of 200  pounds in weight were cau��ht up like  whisps of straw and hurled here and  there, to cling for life to telephone  poles. To some it appeared as if a  blanket of flames flapped hither and  thither, up the wind, down the wind,  and to the. left and to ri��ht firing all  things. No horse could travel so fast  as to keep ahead of the flames. Inside of half an hour or less the entire  city from end to end, and from one  side to the other was a roaring furnace  of flames.  The panic spread into a savage  stampede in which women and children were trampled down by crazed  foreigners. They were all making for  the islands a:id bars in the Elk river.  The hills afforded no shelter for the  forest was aflame clear to the highest  summits. The valley was swept from  end to end, involving Hosmer, where  some of the mine buildings and part  of the town were destroyed, and  Michel was seriously threatened.  By 8 o'clock the city lay a mass of  smoulderini; ashes without a single  concern of any public importance left  except the offices of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal company, the Great Northern depot and water tank, and the  big concrete warehouse of the Trites-  Wood Co. Up at the extreme west  end a matter of twenty houses remain  intact, amonnst them being the residence of W. R- K��ss, M. L. A., Dr.  BonnelU   and    Sherwood    Hersham.  That is all that remains of a city that  should accommodate a population of  nine thousand people. To give in  words any true idea of the thoroughness of the ruin is impossible.. The  ruin can be far better guaged by the  trifl .-, the miserable trifle, that remains  than by a bald recital of the premises  that are gone.  In the result, F'ernie is no more,  and still the men of that greatly  afflicted city are already speaking of  building another and a more beautiful  Fernie, and to provide it with water  and the best of fire-fighting facilites.  This is the third conflagration, that  has swept it. The first two did no  more than partial injury to the city.  The last one was thorough and complete.  Took Him Por A Black Hand.   .  While the printer-philosopher, J.  Peck MacSwain, was travelling on the  Crow the other day in his private car  "Typography," he was held up by two  special constables who, for the moment,  thought he was a member of the Black  Hand society, but when the dulcet  tones ol Peck's voice struck theii ears  they saw their mistake and allowed him  to proceed on his journey,���Cranbrook  Herald.

The BaDtist.Church at Grand Forks  was destroyed by fire on Tuesday  evening. The building was the largest  of its kind in the city, costing in the  neighboihood of $5000. Full insurance was carried.  As Result of Uncertainty of  Coke Shipments.  Much uneasiness has been occasioned in this and other carops in the  Boundary as to the probable effects  here resulting from the Fernie fire.  The industrial life of the Crows Nest  Pass and the Boundary are closely  connected, the entire supply of coke  for the smelter furnaces, which consume several hundred tons daily, coming from the East Kootenay coke  ovens.  When the seriousness of the fire  was learned work was suspended at  the Dominion Copper company's mines  and four furnaces at the Granby  smelter-were blown out.  The fire destroyed the slack bins  and trestle leading to the coke ovens  and no coke : can be shipped from  Fernie for about two weeksl While  the Granby company get some coke  from Michel it won't be sufficient to  run the smelter at more than half to  three-quarters capacity, and for that  reason tbe ore shipments are being  cut down to about 2000 tons daily.  This will of course lay ofl'a considerable  number of men, but it is expected the  delay will not be more than two weeks.  The Granby "company; are ' availing  themselves of the opportunity of connecting up the furnaces with   the   new  blower pipe which has   recently   been  completed.    This new pipe   will   take  the place of the one now in   use,   and  when all the  furnaces  are connected  up with it the old  pipe  will   be  torn  out to make room'for the lengthening  ot the furnaces.     The new  pipe  is  above the old one.  The Dominion Copper company's  mines resumed again yesterday. Manager Rossa stated that he expected  they would be able to pull through at  the smelter until further shipments of  coke would arrive, there being about  five days' supply on hand. The strike  of C. P. R. mechanics, however, may  yet prove a serious matter in coke  spipments.  The B. C. Copper company have  continued without interuption. They  have about a three weeks' supply on  hand.  Midway Depot Boras.  Fire destroyed the C. P. R. depot  at Midway about 2 a. m. on Monday,  entailing a loss of several thousand  dollars. The greatest loss was probably the telegraph equipment, the  wires being out of commission the  greater part ofthe week. H. R. Stevenson, agent, who resided with his family  upstairs, lost all of I his furniture, but  books of the C. P. R. and the express  company were got out. I assenger  coaches standing on the track opposite  the depot were removed in time to be  saved. A temporary office has been  established until a hew station can be  erected.

This  was one of the'factors  in   the steady  advance of the stock   market  in   the  latter   part   of July, resulting  in   the  highest prices seen since  the panic of  last October  for   many  important se-i  curities.    The  great steel   industry is  reported   in   better  shape,   with   the  United States Steel Corporation operating at from 55 to 60 per  cent, of its  capacity, and prices of cotton  goods  have regained some of their loss.    But  concrete evidence, in the way of higher  prices for  commodities,  of  returning  prosperity is  less in  evidence than a  general hopeful feeling that the country  is in the process of righting itself from  the  bad  upset of last  fall, and   that  steadier weather is immediately ahead.  To this feeling  the   very  satisfactory  crop  conditions   have  largely  contributed.      Cotton   has   had    excellent  weather through July, and   will   be in  good shape to withstand any untoward  weather that may come in August and  September,   The large acreage of corn  is in very fair condition.    The Kansas  wheat crop is being threshed, and the  spring   wheat'  of   the   Dakotas   was  rescued   in   the  middle of  July   by  copious  rains from   the drought that  was threatening it.    To the North the  new wheat lands of Canada promise to  give an excellent account of themselves  in the harvest of 1908.���From "The  Progress of the World," in the American Review of Reviews for August.

Late  reports'indicate that the loss  of life  is not as great as was   first supposed,  but it is certain   that  at   least   twenty  lives were lost and ' many  people  are  wounded and suffering; thousands are  homeless with all their earthly possess-  lonSf-swept "away,  while the. loss to property will be upwards of five millions  The catastrophe is without' a   parallel  in-the history ofthe Dominion.  The silvery lining to the  cloud   of  disaster has been the ready and cheerful responses from every   side  to  aid  the suffering from Arriericah-~-as well as  Canadian1 localities, the first relief train  to reach   the  stricken   district   being  from   Spokane.

This  country is not producing 5,006,000  pounds of copper daily. The output  of the mines of the; United States is  less than to "only 3,000,000 pounds  daily, therefore, we are coming to a  famine instead of a feast."  We see no reason why lead should;  be used with copper for electrical  purposes. Iron is- cheaper and better, but not withstanding the cheapness of the latter'metal,, copper still-  has the call.  If you hold copper stocks and want  something to worry about, you should  turn your attention to other matter,  as the furture of the copper market  enquestionably is the brightest spot  in the entire speculative situation.

In the treatment of diseases peculiar to women it is seldom that a case is  seen which does not present some indication  tor this remedial 'acent." Dr. Fyfe further  says: "The following are among-the leading-  indications for Helonias (Unicorn root).

Molybdenum derives its name from a  word of Greek origin which was formerly applied to galena and other sub  stances con'aining lead. Later this  word was only used to designate black  lead or graphits, and the mineral molybdenite, which were thought to be  identical until the chemist, Scheele.  pointed out the difference between the  two mineral in 1778..  Only two molybdenum minerals  have hitherto been found in any quantity, the sulphide "molybdenum," and  lead molybdate ore "wulfenite"; the  former,is the principal ore,, but small  amounts ofthe latter have been produced in a few localities; tungsten minerals sometimes contain molybdenum,  and traces have been found in some  iron ores.  OUR HIQHEST PEAK.  Meant  13.700  Feel  Rob.oa   Which  Towers  Above Sea Level.  Two trained mountaineers of Canada, Dr. Coleman, the geologist, of  Toronto university, and Mr. Kinney  of Victoria, B. C, will attempt to  reach the top of Mount Robson this  summer, it is a virgin teak Mr.  Kinney went to the mountain last year  only to meet rain below and snow  above in such quantities that he could  not make the climb.  ' .Mount Robson is one of the most  inaccessible summits in North America. It stands a little west of the divide, between water going to the  Arctic ocean and others flowing into  the Pacific.  So far as known, it is the highest  point in Canada. Its height was ascertained by the Canadian Geological  Survey only about ten years ago. It  is 13,700 feet above the sea and rises  1 o,750 feet above tbe . neighboring  valley; but somehow it never impressed  those who saw it with its tremendous  elevation, nearly two miles above their  standpoint.  It is in the centre of scenery of remarkable grandeur. James McEvoy,  of the Canadian Geological Survey, ex  plored this region in 1885, and said  that the descriptions of Milton and  Cheadle written in 1865 had in no  respect been overdrawn.  n_gni,��iiiii.

You   are  his father or mother, and if you' desire  to lay your hands on your boy  wilh'n  five minutes any'night,   you   wouldn't  know where to find   him.    He  is  on  the sireet somewhere, or at the railroad  depot jumping on   freight  trains,   but  just where, with   whom,   in   what  engaged, what plotting or   executing   for  the shrewder ones who  plot   for  him,  you could not tell for the life  of you.  He has a good home and he ought to  be there at nicht.    He desires   to   be  somewhere with the boys, and you lack  the moral  courage   to  insist  that, he  shall be  where he  should   be.    You  hope that he   will   escape  the   pitfall  but you know the chances are   againsl  'him. Why don't you do the boy the  kindness to keep him home nights?

At Work On the Farm and  reeling Well All the Time.  Geo. H. Thompco ., Craft,  Hi..., write* j  "I have been cured of catarrh by yoor medicine*,  Peruna and Manalin. I had  been affected with catarrh of  the stomach about all my  life, and was taken bad every  Spring and Summer.  "I used several kinds of  patent medicines, but thoy  did me no good. I then took  a treatment under an M. D.,  which did me bnt little good.  By thla time I had come to  where I could eat nothing bat  a little aonp. I had severe  pains, had lost in weight and conld  no* do anything. I began taking  your mediolrieB, Pernna and Manalin. I  then weighed 126 pounds, bat after taking several bottles of Peruna and  one bottle of Manalin, I weighed 166  poffi_d_.  "I am now at work on th* farm and  feel well all of the time. I eat all I  want to and my friends say that I look  better than ever before. I will ever  praise Peruna for its healing power."  Pe-ru-na Is a Systemic Remedy.  If Peruna proves efficient for catarrh  'n one place, it will be equally potent  in any other place, because it is a systemic remedy.  The people generally are very much  ���niainformed as to the nature of catarrh.  Catarrh is usually believed to becon-  ilncd to the head, nose and throat. Latterly we sometimes hear of catarrh-of  tlie stomach and catarrh of the bowels.  Seldom, if ever, do wo hear of catarrh  ol my other organs.  it is not, because these organs are not  subject to '-atarrh, nor that catarrh of  'hese organs is not a very common disease, but simply because it is not generally known that affections of these  organs may bo duo to catarrh;  Pe-ra-na, the Most Reliable Remedy For  All Climatic Ailments.  ?^  *-*_'���  ���A��6__��,V' ,��,  H.sler's PhlioMphr.���XXXVI.

D. 3, Delaware, Ohio, writes:  "I am a farmer and so necessarily  must be exposed to all kinds of weather.  About three years ago last winter, I  was taken sick with bowel and stomach  trouble.  "One doctor called it ulceration of  the bowels, another called it colitis.  Another doctor helped mo temporarily.  "Then a. druggist recommended  Peruna and I followed his advice. I  took altogether five bottles and I consider myself a well man.  "Before using Peruna, it was utterly  impossible for me to do a day's work,  but now I can do farm work without  the least trouble or fatigue. I consider  Peruna the best medioine and tonic on  the market.  "I had not eaten a meal for five years  without distress until I took Pernna.  I have recommended it to several  friends with good results."  ���^   Chronic Catarrh of  "Head and Throat tasted  Thirty Years.  A Letter Praising Pe-ru-na.  '&jf, i ?____  ���m*  ^ikw  MR.

About three months ago 1 commenced to take Peruaa  and Manalin, aud now I am entirely cured of that troublesome sickness.  Tour medicine is surely a blessing to mankind. Tou can truly say that you  have not lived in vatn, Doctor, and I thank you for the good you have done'  me.   May you enjoy a long life to help suffering humanity."  A TALK TO FARMERS.  THE farmer is the salt of the earth.  Without the farmer, the industrial  world with all, its flurry and immense  wealth could not exist for a day.  It is upon the soil that we all depend  for our living.  No matter how far one may . be removed from tilling the soil, or how little be may know about the farmer's vocation, he is vitally dependent upon the  things which grow in the soil.  Farming is the basis of. all wealth and  is the bulwark of all civilization.  The farming class is rapidly becoming intelligent and [shrewd in business  management. ���  The reuben and the country bumpkin  have disappeared and in their stead a  practical well-trained business man,  capable of the highest form of commercial activity, has arisen'  Peruna is a veryj popular medicine  among the farming class.  . Many a family depends largely upon  Peruna as a family medicine and the  family physician.  Some farmers are far removed from  physicians, and in any case they are  far more self-reliant and more liable to  depend upon a household remedy than  people whd live in the cities.  Dr., Hartman, who for many years  was a farmer himself, and who still  owns and manages one of the best farms  in the State of Ohio, is a friend of the  farmer, and it is with the farmer that  the immense bulk of his correspondence  is conducted.  The millions of booklets published  and distributed by Dr. Hartman every  year circulate chiefly among the farming class.  A largo number of unsolicited testimonials concerning Perunft cgffle txom  the farmers every year.  MR. J. B. ALEXANDER  A Necessity an the Heme.  J. B. Alexander, publisher of the  '���Fruit and "floral Guide, a Magazine of  Horticulture," published in Hartford  City, Ind., says of Peruna:  "I was afflicted with catarrh of the  "throat and head for Over' ten years. I  waB treated by many physicians, but  grew worse until I was seldom able to  go out in cold weather.  : "About one year ago I was adviaed to  try Peruna, which I did, and I am now  entirely well of the catarrh.  "Peruna ia a necessity in our home.  With the first symptoms of a cold we  use it, and are never afflicted with catarrh.  :  "I advise all who are aJHioted with  catarrh to try Peruna. There is certainly  nothing equal to it as 'a catarrh medicine."  Dr. Hartman Interested In Farming.  Notwithstanding Dr. Hartman's busy  professional career, he still continues to  be interested -In farming;- - He' is'the  owner and manager of one of the largest farms in the State of Ohio, with  several thousand acres of the beat tilled  land in the Middle West, and with  hundreds of the best blooded percheron  horses ever imported or raised in. this  country,  Dr. Hartman relies upon Peruna entirely in cases of sickness in hi. own I prevention and   cur*  family. 1 diseases.  Pe-ru-rM. a nausehaM rrleaxg. %-,  Mr. Henry _l��__roaal_i/ _EaUy. Mich.  writes:  "I suffered (or almost ten years with  catarrh of the stomach and all doctor-:  ing waa of no avail. I took nine bottles  ot Pernna and two of Manalin and am  now entirely cured.  "I recommend  the medicine  to all  who are afflicted with this disease.   It  ia my household lriend."  One af Dr. Hartman's Grateful car*  respondents.  Mr. W.R. Callahan, proprietor of Big  Hill Farm, and prominent fruit grower  and stock raiser, Glenvar, *Va., writes:  "I write to express my kindness  toward you and your good medicine,  Peruna.  "I had a very bad spell of'- sickness  and could not eat anything at all. My  head, stomach, in fact, my whole body-  ached, and It looked as though' nothing  would do me any good. I had almost  given up.  "I decided to try a'bottle"of your  Peruna and before I had taken half the  bottle my appetite came to me and my  head became all right. In fact, I waa  all right all over.   Peruaa cured me."  While Peruna is not confined  to any  one class ot people, yet it is probably  true that the farming class more than  any other, rely upon Peruna for   th*  of  all   climatia  FREE TEXT BOOKS  FOR SCHOOLS  sic em tige.

Wilson,  the officer in charge of the free text  book branch, in nn interview published  in the Colonist a few days since. "Our  offer has in many cases been mistaken  as an offer to outfit the schools anew  There is no reason why pupils viho are  in possession of text books should  throw them away in order to get a new  one. Supposing there are thirty pupils  in the second grade, all possessing text  books. Suppose twenty pass into the  third grade. These twenty will probably require new text books, but there  is no reason why the other ten should  be supplied afresh as they will continue  to make use of the old ones. It is our  intention to install a sense of economy  and business methods into both th>  ���e3chers and the pupils of public  schools of this province, and with this  end iiv view we are asking them to  meet us in our offer. The trustees ol  the school must sign an agret-m-nt to  provide suitable accommodation for  the books, and to see that tha leachers  attend to the books being kept in proper condition We also ask for 1111 ar-  nual report upon the condition of the  books.  "Milne's arithmetic, which is an im  proved illustrated text hook prepared  specially for the schools of this province, is bein_. sent to all the pupil-,  as are also the scribblers and exercise  books.  "Provision has been made for the  first time," observed Mr. Wilson, "for  the destruction of unsanitary school  books, and under the new regulations,  medical officers will call at the schools  Irom time to time lo examine into the  condition of the books."  Mr. Wilson's department has already  filed 150 requisitions from different  school sections. The requisitions from  Vancouver and Victoria have not yet  been sent in. The first shipments of  books was made on July loth and ship  ments have been made steadily since  then.  With each set of books a fine large  Union Jack is beint! given. This flag  is nine feet in length by four and a  half in width, and it certainly is a  beauty, gcod enough to hoist on the  lieutenant-governor's flagpole.  It is estimated that one exercise  book and two scribblers should, on the  average, comprise a term's supply of  these articles for a pupil of the senior  or intermediate grade; and   that  two  scribblers per term should suffice lor a  junior grade pupil. Due economy  must therefore be exercised by school  officials in preparing lists of supplies  for the use of their schools.  The department is providing readers,  arithmetics, copy books jnd exercise  books at present. This, it is recognized, is but u beginning in the free  book system.

The main shaft of the Centra Star  at Rossland has reached the sixteenth  level, a depth of 7,200 feet from the  collar of the shaft.  As a result of a deal which has just  been put through at Ladysmith, by  John Stewart, the west coast of the  island is to have an important go'd  mining industry.  J. W. Douglas, Ii R. McLean and  Chas. Lewain, of Now Vork visited  the Lakeview and Dividend claims six  mile north of Oroville. About 12  men are kept at work on the property,  which is on the Canadian side The  ore is heavily sulphide, bearing copper  and gold.  It is reported from the Slocan district that although the town of Sandon  is just now at as low an ebb as it has  b en for many years, yet for all that  the mining properties in the district j  are looking well and there are far more  men at work than has been the easel  for some time past.  "There is a big rush going on just  now into the Finlay river district " said  J. B Bowlington, who recently arrived  at Vancouver from Port Essin^'on.  "There must have been two hundred  men come into the country in the past  two or three weeks. Prospectors with  whom I have conversed and who have  been working in the Findlay district  all last season have got right down to  bed rock at a depth of some forty-five  feet, and havn brought out some very  good samples of gold."

COMPANY'S  MINE AND SMELTER  Thirty Tons of Matte Leave  Weekly for Refinery.  At the B. C. Copper company's  smelter everything is wot king at high  pressure, the furnaces eating up about  14,000 tons of ore a week. The three  furnaces of this company handle two-  thirds as much ore as the eight furnaces of the Granby at Grand Foiks.  The matte of the Boundary Falls smelter is purchased outright, and thirty  tons of copper leave. Greenwood.daily  for the lefinery in New Jcisey. At 13  cents a pound this aniuunt of red  metal is worth $7,800. Coke is aniv-  uig in fairly large quantities, alihough  in iS days the supply fell behind the  amount used by 200 tons. Much of  ihe coke anives in box cars.  Al the Mother Lode mine the tians-  formers were.-.put in the .substation this  week, and that mine will have 110  difficulty iii the future for 'ark of power.  Next week both compre&sc rs will he in  operation, and development^ work will  again go on in the mine.:', At its mines  the<compaiiy uses more than; $6,000  worth- of dynamite monthly, most oi  which  is. 40  per cent.  Since this company commenced  operations in Greenwood it has Leen  handicapped at times owing to- the  lack of power and coke. The supply  of power is now. .adequate, and when  the company can be assured of an tin  fail ng supply of coke it is mare than  lik-ly that several more furnaces will  he erected, and the output of the smelter more than doubled.' It. would be  much cheaper to tieat the Snowshoe  ore here and save the long haul over  two summits to Trail.���The Ledge.
