And while   he  has   had   able   assistants,   Mr. Mc  Allist'er himself is   responsible in no  small way for the progressive strides  the company has made. "  No better  testimonial as   to his  qualifications  as a metallurgist is required than.is  reflected in the growth of the British   Columbia    Copper.       He   has  brains   and the   capacity for  doing  things and his success in the broader field of the consulting engineer is  assured.     His   departure   from the  active sphere  of  Boundary mining,  which he has   done so much   to develop, will   be a   matter of general  regret   and    his   many friends   will  wish him   success   in his new field.  Mr.  McAllister   returned  yesterday  from a trip   to   Vancouver and   will  leave in the   course of a  few  days  with Mrs. McAllister for New York.  0 While in? VancbuverjMr. McAllister was wired by a committee as  to  what date would be convenient for  a complimentary banquet to him by  citizens of Greenwood and employes  of the  company,   but thus for has  not given a date of acceptance^  %  Mr.  Warren,  who  succeeds Mr.  McAlister as  general   manager, is  receiving the congratulations of his  many   friends   on   his   promotion.  Mr. Warren has   been  smelter superintendent  for ay number o�� years  and   has   kept  in close   touch with  the operations of the company, frequently fillingithe position of general  manager   during   Mr., McAllister's  absence.   Mr. Warren is thoroughly  competent and has   recognized   executive ability and his   appointment  will be a popular one generally.

General  Manager Graves says the company  has  put a large   tonnage   of ore in  sight and that"  the   property,is perhaps   the , most promising  of   anything he has   known ,of for some  time.     It  is roughly  estimated by  Granby   engineers   that   they  have  about 4,000,000  tons of ore.devel-  oped in this  group  since they took  option upon it, in. addition   to what  was  already  developed.    This  ore  runs  about  2j4   per   cent  copper.  Conditions are such that  more economical mining and  treating of the  ore can be done at  the Granby, according  to Mr.   Graves,   and  it is  safe to say that they have about as  economical operation costs at Granby as those had at any other smelting plants.     It is  expected the two  properties will work   well together,  the Hidden Creek ores  mixing well  with Granby's.    ^  :���'  Fancy Dress Ball  On the evening of May 2d there  will be given in the Miners' Union  hall a fancy dress ball.

An immediate loss of revenue   must  follow this step; but1 the Australian  authorities are hopeful  that'the increase, of, correspondence.,will, to.a  great extent, help .to compensate for,  the decreased -price per, letter,.and  they point .ou;t that, the more, letters  written from,Australia to England,'  and vice versa, the better will be the  result in increased trade and a firmer  mutual understanding."
